If you thought the Harvey Weinstein drama was over, think again…
Following the disgraced movie producer’s guilty sentencing, more information is coming to light. And one thing which has stood out thanks to some newly unsealed court documents is a comment he made about a certain Jennifer Aniston back in 2017…
In October 2017, during the height of the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, a reporter from The National Enquirer contacted his representative at the time, Sallie Hofmeister, for more information regarding an allegation that he once groped Jennifer Aniston.
The email exchange between the reporter, Sallie Hofmeister, and Harvey Weinstein has now been published, which shows the 67-year-old disgraced mogul making threatening comments about the former Friends actress…
“The National Enquirer intends to publish a story reporting Jennifer Aniston was sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein,” the reporter wrote in the email.
And according to reports, Harvey Weinstein emailed his representative back on 31 October 2017, writing: “Jen Aniston should be killed.”
However, Jennifer Aniston’s people have denied that she ever made allegations about being groped or sexually harassed in any way by Harvey Weinstein.
“The National Enquirer claims are false. Jennifer has not been harassed or assaulted by Harvey,” Jennifer Aniston’s rep, Stephen Huvane, said.
“He never got close enough to her to touch her. She has never been alone with him,” he told The New York Times.
“We have no idea about the email, since it wasn’t sent to us, nor do we have any comment to make on it.”
Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexually assaulting over 70 women.
As it stands, he faces a minimum sentence of five years in prison, and up to 29 years in prison after being found guilty of third-degree rape and a first-degree criminal sexual act.
He has denied all accusations of non-consensual sex, and is set to face another hearing today.
