In the wake of Uma Thurman's explosive interview with the New York Times concerning assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the embattled producer has released a statement that points towards possible legal action against Thurman.
In a statement released to media via Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, the producer said that "Ms. Thurman’s statements to the Times are being carefully examined and investigated before deciding whether any legal action against her would be appropriate."
The interview alleged that Weinstein assaulted Thurman multiple times, beginning in the early '90s in London. When Thurman confronted him about it, she alleged that Weinstein threatened to derail her career if she spoke up.
Weinstein is now facing nine separate investigations from British police for sexual assault and misconduct, whilst two separate investigations in the US are now under review by the Los Angeles District Attorney.
