It seems that the FBI has also joined the case involving Harvey Weinstein. It has been reported that the FBI started an investigation against Weinstein, following allegations of sexual harassment and rape from several women.
The Daily Mail reported that the FBI’s decision was rushed by rumors that Weinstein was planning on leaving the Unites States to move to Europe. This means that he might be able to avoid prosecution. So, the FBI will be looking into the allegations against Weinstein. A TMZ report claimed that Weinstein was actually planning on leaving the country this week and fly to Switzerland. The same report claimed that the Hollywood producer later changed his mind.
The star wanted to go to Europe to get treatment for sex addiction. However, it was reported that his team finally found a facility for him to attend in Arizona. Weinstein will allegedly get treatment for sex addiction and behavioral issues at this facility. However, this does not mean that things are looking better for Weinstein.
In fact, the producer is constantly linked to new sexual harassment allegations. While more women start to speak up about his abuses, some cases have also been reported outside of the US. So, reportedly, there are five accusers talking about his misconduct in France, as well as some in London, although the exact number has not been revealed for the moment. Most likely, the FBI will collaborate with the local authorities when it comes to their investigation.
One of the most serious allegations against Weinstein had been made by Lucia Evans, who said that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him. Lucia said she was a student who wanted to become an actress in 2004, when this happened. The incident occurred in New York. Several actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd, claimed that they were sexually harassed by Weinstein on different occasions at the beginning of their careers. They each shared different stories on how the abuse happened.
