Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company on Sunday, after The New York Times' initial article on Thursday claimed he had sexually harassed women over three decades. More women, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, have since gone on the record accusing him of sexual harassment or sexual assault.
In a statement to ET, Weinstein's lawyer, Charles J. Harder, called the New York Times report "saturated with false and defamatory statements." He also said Weinstein and his team are planning to file a lawsuit, with any proceeds being donated to women's organizations.
On Tuesday, Weinstein's spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister, added in a statement, "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances... Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path."
