Harvey Weinstein’s Brother May Have Fed the New York Times Their Bombshell Story

Earlier this week, the New York Times released a blockbuster expose on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein that alleged that the man behind Oscar-winning hits like Pulp Fiction and Shakespeare in Love was a serial sexual harasser who had settled eight lawsuits for sexual wrongdoing over the past 30 years.

Well, if Page Six’s sources are to be believed, the person who fed the Times their bombshell report is very close to Harvey — his brother Bob.

“Bob’s wanted Harvey out for years,” said a former staffer, who added that the two brothers are becoming increasingly suspicious of each other.

Insiders believe that Bob may have helped concoct the explosive New York Times story that exposed the harassment allegations from Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan and other former employees.

“Bob may have even fed this story” to the Times, the insider said.

Another person told Page Six that vengeance may have been on Bob’s mind as he wanted his brother to get “what’s coming to him.”

This evening, it was announced that Harvey Weinstein had been suspended from the brothers’ company while these allegations are investigated.
