Harvey Weinstein's daughter calls him 'suicidal'

The scandal continues to rock Hollywood.

NEW YORK – Harvey Weinstein is being investigated by the NYPD over a 2004 incident, an NYPD spokesperson told Fox News on Thursday.

The former Miramax exec has been accused of sexual assault, rape and harassment.

Among the allegations is Lucia Evans, who claims she met Weinstein in New York in 2004 while she was a college student. She told the New Yorker she first encountered the mogul at the club Cipriani Upstairs and later went to a meeting at his office with the promise of being in one of his films.

Evans claims that Weinstein quickly became aggressive towards her, forcing her to perform oral sex on him.

“I said, over and over, ‘I don’t want to do this, stop, don’t….He’s a big guy. He overpowered me,” the 34 year old told the New Yorker.

New York State does not have a statute of limitations against sex crimes.

The Hollywood Reporter claims Weinstein has retained criminal defense attorney Blair Berk.
