According to the website, TMZ, the 65-year-old was eating dinner with his sober coach at the Elements restaurant when someone named "Steve" approached him and asked for a photo.
The video, acquired and discharged by TMZ, indicates Weinstein requesting that the companion not film him, while the calm mentor tries to hinder the camera. The resort itself discharged an announcement, "Our visitors' protection is central at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa".
Over the past few months, over 60 women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein.
But then, as they were both leaving the restaurant, Steve told his friend to get out his cell phone and record him as he approached Weinstein again. "I would love to have a photo with you", Steve says in the audio clip. Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister tells The Arizona Republic in an email that TMZ's report was accurate, but would not provide further comment. He claimed that Weinstein was "belligerent" and told him to go away. We see Weinstein stumble a bit, remove the skull cap he's wearing and look at the man in confusion. Weinstein, who was having dinner with his sobriety coach, declined rather politely, while Steve pretends to be Weinstein's biggest fan.
A restaurant manager said the attacker was "drunk and out of control".
