Disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein is fighting ill health behind bars, according to multiple reports.
The producer is in isolation in a New York prison with a temperature of 101 degrees, law enforcement sources say TMZ Weinstein is doing “badly”.
He was reportedly tested for the coronavirus on Tuesday morning and doctors are waiting for the results, but they are sure he has COVID-19. He is transferred to a prison hospital if the test is positive.
Reports suggested that Weinstein contracted the coronavirus in March (20), but he was never officially diagnosed.
Sources claim he is at extreme risk.
Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year sentence after a jury convicted him of forcibly performing oral sex with Miriam Haleyi and raping hairstylist Jessica Mann. In addition to his current sentence, the producer is currently awaiting extradition to Los Angeles in connection with crimes related to three other victims and he was recently charged with six additional criminal charges related to three alleged rapes in Beverly Hills, California.
