Harvey Weinstein Settles with His Accusers for $44 Million

Harvey Weinstein has reached a settlement with the women who have accused him of sexual assault.

The disgraced movie producer has reportedly agreed to a $44 million settlement, with $30 million going to his accusers, unsecured creditors, and former Weinstein Company employees and the other $14 million being used to pay legal fees.

Harvey won’t actually have to pay the $44 million himself as insurance policies will cover the amount of the deal is approved, according to the New York Times.

Weinstein‘s legal team reportedly hopes that the settlement will cover all of the pending lawsuits against him and his former movie studio, which is now bankrupt.

He will still be facing criminal charges for allegedly raping a woman and forcing another to perform oral sex on him. He has pleaded not guilty.
