Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Punched Twice In The Face While Out To Dinner!

Video obtained by TMZ shows disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein getting confronted and slapped twice by a seemingly intoxicated man while he was leaving the Scottsdale, Arizona restaurant Elements on Tuesday evening. After that, he punched Weinstein in the face twice, forcing him to stumble backward and nearly fall to the floor.

However, an unnamed restaurant manager told the website that Weinstein was actually "very sweet about it" and said, "I'd rather not take a picture right now".

Steve, who admits he had "quite a bit to drink", told United States website TMZ the former Miramax boss rudely rejected the photo request.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred after Weinstein declined the man's earlier request for a photograph. "You're a f-ing piece of s-t". The two shook hands and the man left however, when Weinstein and his coach left the venue, the man began shouting at Weinstein.

Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister told The Arizona Republic in an email that TMZ's report was accurate and had no further comment. The likes of Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner and Louis C.K. have all seen their careers essentially ended after being accused of sexual misconduct.

He also tries to grab the camera out of the man's hand at one point. He says Weinstein stumbled backward and nearly fell.

Weinstein, 65, has been spotted in the Valley over the past few months after dozens of allegations surfaced in late 2017 that for decades he had sexually harassed and blacklisted women who rejected his advances.

A restaurant manager said the attacker was "drunk and out of control".

In October, The New York Times and New Yorker released stories accusing the film executive of sexual harassment and rape.

Weinstein has been living in Arizona at a rehab facility following accusations from almost 100 women that he sexually harassed/assaulted them.
