Harvey Weinstein scandal: Wife of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner 'offering support to Georgina Chapman'

LAPD called to settle 'family dispute' at home of Harvey Weinstein's daughter

The incident comes as more actresses and colleagues make allegations of sexual harassment against him

The wife of disgraced politician Anthony Weiner is reportedly consoling Harvey Weinstein's wife as the Hollywood producer's sexual harassment scandal rumbles on.

Huma Abedin has been through her own turmoil over recent months, with Weiner's own sex scandal culminating in a jail sentence for the former Congressman and New York mayoral candidate.

And now the New York Post claims she reaching out to friend Georgina Chapman, who announced she is leaving Weinstein in light of the allegations against him.

British model and actress Cara Delevingne became the latest star to speak out against the 65-year-old to speak out with a lengthy statement on Instagram.

She claimed the producer had made unwanted advances on her in a hotel room, asked her to kiss another girl, and had told her she would be unable to play the roles of straight women if she refused his demands.

Lea Seydoux, a French actress who starred in the James Bond film Spectre, claimed she defended herself after the 65-year-old had reportedly jumped on her and tried to kiss her.

The allegations expanded on Tuesday with three claims of rape – which are denied by the producer.

In an unrelated development, police have revealed they were called to settle a “family dispute” at the home of Weinstein’s daughter.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) admitted they had received reports of a disturbance at the address, but made clear no crime had been committed.
