Lisa Bloom Did Not Know Severity of Harvey Weinstein Allegations

Lisa Bloom resigned as Harvey Weinstein‘s legal advisor the other day and now a report claims she was “totally lied to” about the movie producer’s alleged indiscretions.

The women’s rights advocate was reportedly only aware “of verbal remarks, behaviors, and temper tantrums” when she took on the role of Weinstein‘s advisor and she did not know about the allegations of sexual assault and rape.

“When it’s this whole other level, that’s when she had to go out,” an insider told Variety.

Bloom was criticized for advising Harvey as she is a staunch women’s rights advocate who has spent her career defending women, including many of Bill O’Reilly‘s accusers.

Harvey Weinstein's Advisor Lisa Bloom Resigns

High-profile lawyer Lisa Bloom has resigned from her role as movie mogul Harvey Weinstein‘s legal advisor amid the accusations of decades of sexual harassment.

The news comes after a third of The Weinstein Company’s board members have resigned and Weinstein himself announced he will take an indefinite leave of absence from the company.

“I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein. My understanding is that Mr. Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement,” Lisa tweeted on Saturday morning (October 7).

Lisa previously defended her decision to represent Weinstein after even her own mother, lawyer Gloria Allred, spoke out against her client.

“As a women’s rights advocate, I have been blunt with Harvey and he has listened to me. I have told him the times have changed, it is 2017, and he needs to evolve to a higher standard. I have found Harvey to be refreshingly candid and receptive to my message. He has acknowledged the mistakes he has made. … He is an old dinosaur and learning new ways,” she said.
