The 65-year-old rushed to comfort 22-year-old Remy because she was “very upset and concerned for her father”, Page Six reports.

The pair reportedly had a row and he stormed out of the house – causing her to call cops telling them her dad was “suicidal and depressed” as sexual abuse claims from Hollywood A-listers mounted against him.

She later had a change of heart and told officers he was not at risk of self harm after Weinstein came back to her home.

A friend told Page Six: “Remy overreacted at the situation, out of love and concern for her father, and called the police, telling them he was depressed and suicidal.

“This situation is of course very hard for Harvey, but he is not suicidal — his heart is breaking for his kids.”

The LAPD confirmed that officers responded to a call for someone who was suicidal and depressed.

It comes after a FBI probe was opened at the request of the Department of Justice, which is run by Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Mail Online reports.

The US President has already spoken out against the explosive claims made against the Hollywood producer, saying: “I’ve known him for years. I’m not surprised.”


Fall from grace - what we know:

  • On October 5th, The New York Times publishes an article about Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct revealing settlements with at least eight women.
  • The movie mogul then issues a statement admitting he has "caused a lot of pain" apologising for his actions.
  • He's fired by the board of the Hollywood business he launched - The Weinstein Company - with "immediate effect."
  • His growing list of accusers include Angelina Jolie, Asia Argento , Gwyneth Paltrow, Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd.
  • The New Yorker claims three women  have accused him of rape, allegations he “unequivocally denies”.
  • British wife Georgina Chapman announces she is leaving him saying: "My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain."
  • Up to 30 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein, 65, of sex crimes — but the final total could be much higher
  • British wife Georgina Chapman left him after ten years of marriage, branding his actions “unforgivable”
  •  He was said to have fled to an addiction clinic amid fears he might skip the country and evade justice like director Roman Polanski
  • His membership of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts was suspended
  • PM Theresa May hinted he could be stripped of his CBE awarded in 2004
  • Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas and Irish presenter Laura Whitmore told how they felt “creeped out” by Weinstein

Movie mogul Weinstein was a donor for Trump's rival Hillary Clinton, who turned her back on him on Tuesday as more allegations came to light.

In the past 24 hours multiple women - including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow - have made accusations against the Hollywood producer.

Weinstein had been expected to fly to rehab in Europe to treat his sex addiction after his wife Georgina Chapman left him.

But it has now been revealed he will be staying Stateside for his treatment, allegedly jetting off from LA to Arizona last night.

There are numerous facilities in the desert State, with TMZ reporting that the disgraced mogul will be checking into the famous The Meadows Addiction Treatment Center.

Previous celebrities to use the facility include Tiger Woods, Selena Gomez and Kate Moss.

A representative for Weinstein told Page Six: “We cannot comment on his location.”

It comes just hours after Hollywood star Ewan McGregor slammed Weinstein, 64, saying he heard "rumours" about the movie mogul's behaviour over many years.

McGregor, the star of the Trainspotting films, said Weinsten was getting his "just deserts" and added: "Bye bully."

The Oscar-winning producer has also been accused of raping three women in bombshell new allegations.

Weinstein travelled the globe promoting his movies and The Sun has now revealed how he was obsessed with Prince Harry's ex Cressida Bonas.

Cara Delevingne has also claimed the mogul attacked her

The 28-year-old became "creeped out" by the producer, while TV’s Laura Whitmore also feared for her safety around the film-maker after he offered to boost her career.

It comes as singer Rita Ora and Harry Potter star Emma Watson spoke out against the mogul.

Model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne claimed on Instagram Weinstein tried to kiss her and attempted to force her to have a threesome in his hotel suite.

A spokesperson for the FBI in New York told the Mail: "We do not confirm or deny the existence of ongoing investigations."

Unfortunate sculptures resemble male members while balloons and butter echo breasts.

Drinks machines and puddles also appear in the hilarious gallery.

THE parents of a six-year-old boy who died from meningitis have released the harrowing last photo of their son in a bid to raise awareness.

Oliver Hall died less than 24 hours after first showing signs he was ill.

Despite the best efforts of doctors and nurses who “did everything they could” to save Oliver’s life, the infection overwhelmed his body.

He passed away at the James Paget University Hospital in Norfolk on October 24.

At the age of six, Oliver was not vaccinated against the strain that cut his young life short – meningitis B.

In September 2015, the MenB vaccine was added to the NHS childhood immuisation programme, but only for babies under the age of 12 months.

Now, Oliver’s heartbroken parents are urging the Government to make it available free of charge to all kids.

Bryan and Georgie Hall, from Halesworth in Suffolk, have joined forces with Meningitis Now to raise awareness.

Mrs Hall said: “Oliver achieved so much in his short life. He will always be remembered.”

Now the couple are calling on health secretary Jeremy Hunt and the Government to widen the vaccination programme to protect more children.

“The Government are saying it’s not cost effective to vaccinate more children against this disease.

“Meningitis Now are arguing that point.

“Our main goal is to help them get this vaccination rolled out to more children.”


MORE THAN A RASH What is meningitis, how can you catch it and what are the signs and symptoms of the deadly disease?


The charity argues that a vaccine for all would be cost-effective, when compared with the cost of treating the devastating disease.

Meningitis can affect people of all ages, but is more common in babies and young children.

Teenagers and young adults – particularly university students – are also at high risk, because they live and socialise close together, raising the risk of the disease spreading quickly.

On Friday, the Meningitis Research Foundation urged people to be alert to the signs and symptoms of the disease, as cases of the deadly infection are expected to treble over the festive period.

There are five main groups of meningitis, but meningococcal B (Men B) is the most common, responsible for 55 per cent of cases of meningococcal meningitis.

While the MenB jab is available free of charge on the NHS to babies, it can be bought privately.

Boots and other pharmacies offer the two-dose course at a cost of £220.

Last month Mrs Hall met MPs and other families, who have lost their children to meningitis.

“On the back of this meeting, they are looking into setting up a working party with the main aim of looking into the cost effectiveness of the vaccine and rolling it out to children.

“That is a positive step.”

The couple set up the Oliver Hall Forever Fund tribute website, to raise money for Meningitis Now.

So far more than £4,000 has been raised in Oliver’s memory.

His mum added: “To see that total going up makes us feel that Oliver’s life was not in vain.”

The singer’s mother Jo paid tribute to her “spark of life” son, telling Hull Daily Mail: “From the day he was born I can’t explain the feeling he gave me.”

Dave, whose nickname was Cardo, played in bands including Mother and GST Cardinals.

Family and friends gathered at the Queens Pub in Hull to pay tribute to Dave, remembering the singer as a “rockstar”.

Friend Grant Dobbs said: “He was a rock and roll star. You had to meet the man for him to have such an effect on you.

“He had the Cardo-effect. He’s touched everybody’s hearts in here. He never had a bad word to say about anyone.”

He said the young musician had only played his last gig two weeks ago before suffering the fatal heart attack.

Dave was found at his home in Dunswell on Tuesday.

Friends said that he was a true entertainer, on and off the stage.

The Polar Bear will be holding a tribute night to Dave on Friday.

Four members of The Paddingtons will perform a Strokes tribute act in honour of their friend.
