Harvey Weinstein has reached a reported settlement with his alleged victims worth $44 million, according to reports.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the disgraced producer reached the deal with a number of women who accused him of sexual misconduct, as well as the attorney-general's office of New York and the board of his former film studio.
Weinstein's alleged misconduct kick-started the '#MeToo' movement in late 2017. The $44 million deal is expected to compensate his alleged victims, covering most of the 15+ lawsuits that have been filed against him.
The deal, however, is a civil action; Weinsten still faces criminal charges of rape and performing a forcible sex act, which he denies. Those charges were brought by two different women in May 2018 and have yet to be resolved.
