Harvey Weinstein sexual assault victims set to receive part of $19 million settlement

The women who were at several times sexually assaulted or maltreated by disgraced movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein are set to receive part of a $19M settlement.

The disgraced movie mogul is reported to have sexually assaulted over 100 women.

PageSix reports that the deal was brokered by the New York state attorney general’s office in its class-action lawsuit against The Weinstein Company.

The states that former employees of the movie mogul who “experienced a hostile work environment, sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination” are eligible for part of the compensation fund.

However, the agreement still needs to be approved by the district court presiding over the case.

Weinstein was found guilty of forcibly performing oral sex on former “Project Runway” staffer Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi in 2006 and raping hairstylist Jessica Mann in 2013.


He was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

The list of the female celebrities who alleged that they were assaulted by Weinstein includes Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Lupita Nyong'o who gave a very descriptive detail of her different experiences with the movie mogul.
