Harvey Weinstein has agreed to a $44 million deal to settle lawsuits with his alleged sexual misconduct victims, his former film studio’s board members, and the New York attorney general’s office, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The cash settlement will include about $30 million for his alleged victims, former Weinstein Co. employees and creditors, and their lawyers, sources said.
Another $14 million will go to the legal fees of the disgraced Hollywood producer associates, including his former board members, sources said.
The money comes from insurance policies, sources told the paper.
A lawyer for Weinstein’s brother and studio co-founder Bob Weinstein told a bankruptcy judge in Delaware Thursday of the deal, the Journal reported.
Weinstein faces criminal charges for allegedly raping a woman he knew in his Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on former production assistant Mimi Haley in 2006.
Weinstein has denied the accusations and said he did not have non-consensual sex with any of his accusers.
