Looks like Harvey Weinstein has got a defender after all! Lindsay Lohan, the famous Mean Girls actress, has come to Harvey’s rescue on Instagram.
In her recent statement Lindsay openly defended him, “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
She further stated, “He’s never harmed me or did anything to me- we’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop- I think it’s wrong, so stand up.”
She also addressed his wife Georgina Chapman and asked her to take his husband’s side and defend him.
Even though she deleted her video within an hour but people were quick enough to save it and it has been posted by several pages and sites. Lindsay Lohan is currently staying in Dubai for her next series shooting.
It’s quite shocking to see this support coming for Weinstein when everyone is against him for sexual harassment and rape.
In a New York Times report, eight women came forward and spoke against him for inappropriate behavior.
Despite the claims that Weinstein made about his wife defending him, Georgina Chapman came forward and announced to leave Harvey Weinstein.
The Marchesa designer said in her statement, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions.”
She continued, “Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
The couple has two children together. Post his wife’s statement, Harvey also issued his own statement.
According to him, “I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s , when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then. I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office- or out of it. To anyone. I realized sometime ago that I needed to be better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed.”
He further said, “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go. That is my commitment.”
According to latest update, Harvey is heading to Europe for sex addiction rehab and also he might get divorce from his wife after her recent statement.
Hollywood and other stars are also distancing themselves from him after this scandal. Looks like a rough time has just started for Harvey Weinstein!
