Report: Weinstein’s Sex Addiction Rehab Off to a Bumpy Start

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has reportedly been alienating other patients in his sex-addiction rehab facility by falling asleep during therapy sessions, barking into a contraband phone, and attributing the slew of sexual-assault allegations against him to a mysterious conspiracy. According to sources cited by the New York Post’s Page Six on Thursday, Weinstein has stopped attending group-therapy sessions after apparently disrupting discussions with his belligerent behavior. “In one group-therapy session, Harvey arrived 15 minutes late. Then, when it was his turn to speak, he launched into a speech about how this is all a conspiracy against him,” one source was cited as saying. In another instance, Weinstein is said to have fallen asleep while other group members shared personal stories, only to jump up when his contraband phone rang and rush out of the room. Despite volunteering to seek help for sex addiction last week, Weinstein, according to sources cited in the report, is repeatedly denying wrongdoing and insisting all sex he had was consensual. He was ousted from The Weinstein Company this month and resigned from its board this week following numerous sexual-assault allegations.
