Actress defends Harvey Weinstein (video)


Actress Lindsay Lohan made a video of herself defending disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday, saying that she doesn’t “think it’s right, what’s going on.”

Her comments in two Instagram videos have since been deleted, but it’s too late for the scandal-ridden former child star to walk back her public support of a man who is now being accused of having raped three women.

“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don’t think it’s right, what’s going on,” Lindsay explained in her video, which appears to have been taken in a bathroom in Dubai. “I think Georgina (Weinstein’s wife) needs to take a stand and be there for her husband.”

Lohan went on to note, “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.”

Meanwhile, Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s wife, has announced that she is leaving her husband of 10 years.

Weinstein had issued a statement earlier this week claiming that his wife is dedicated to standing by him, but Chapman released a statement of her own to People, explaining that she’s leaving her husband after a long list of allegations against him came to light.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” said Chapman.

On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from his film studio and reportedly checked himself into a rehab center in Europe for sex addiction to help him “turn over a new leaf.” The news came on the same day that the New Yorker posted a follow-up to the original New York Times exposé in which several women accused Weinstein of harassing them.
