Harvey Weinstein's Death Threat

     A few days before Harvey Weinstein's sentencing for raping a hairdresser and forcibly performing oral sex on a "Project Runway" production assistant, the Manhattan supreme court made public a trove of documents pertaining to the Weinstein case that had been previously under seal.

     One of the sealed documents included an email sent on October 31, 2017 to Weinstein by his spokeswoman, Sallie Hofmeister. The Hofmeister email alerted Weinstein to a story The National Enquirer planned to publish regarding accusations against Weinstein made by the actress, Jennifer Aniston.

     According to the story, Aniston had complained to a friend that during the production of the 2005 film, "Derailed," Weinstein sexually assaulted her by pressing up against her back and grabbing her buttocks. According to the Enquirer piece, "Through the years he [Weinstein] frequently stared at her cleavage and moved his mouth around, making her uncomfortable."

     The Hofmeister email also included this Enquirer revelation: "Harvey was infatuated with Jennifer Aniston. He had a massive crush on her and constantly talked about how hot she was."

     About 45 minutes after receiving Hofmeister's email, Weinstein used his iPhone to sent his spokeswoman this: "Jen Aniston should be killed."

     The National Enquirer did not publish the Aniston story, and a spokesperson for the actress called these accusations against Harvey Weinstein false.
