DailyCaller: Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein threatened an AIDS charity years ago because he thought a lawyer affiliated with it was looking into the former studio executive’s sex life, according to an NBC News report.
NBC News obtained a document showing the recorded minutes of an October 2016 amfAR board meeting that reveal Weinstein exploding when he learned lawyer Tom Ajamie was looking into a deal between designer Kenneth Cole and himself.
“He called furious and said how dare you after 25 years, tens of millions I’ve raised, all I’ve done for amfAR, how dare you stick your lawyers on me to do what they’re doing,” the minutes read. The minutes are a summary of Cole’s comments on the situation.
The memo on the minutes added that Weinstein had gotten a letter about a lawyer “representing a famous nonprofit to investigate Harvey’s financial irregularities as well as his sex life. Harvey reiterated that it was inappropriate and slanderous and that he would personally investigate each person on the amfAR board and the committee,” according to the minutes. more here
