It seems somewhat ironic that such a slimy toad of a human would end up hiding out in the extreme heat of Phoenix, Arizona, but Harvey is still living large.
Much of his money is now funnelled into costs related to preventing his incarceration, like the expensive addiction clinic he attends or the PR crisis management firm he employs.
Sitrick and Co.’s services are rumoured to start at around $50 000 (R580 000) a month, but something tells me they’re fighting a losing battle.
According to the LA Times, he’s shacked up in relative comfort:
Since the scandal broke in October after an expose in the New York Times, Weinstein has resided at least temporarily at a luxury apartment complex in nearby Scottsdale, according to two people who work in the complex but weren’t authorized [sic] to speak. The Optima Sonoran Village [below] is a modern, multi-building facility with colorfully painted exteriors and balconies featuring hanging foliage.
The complex offers amenities including an indoor lap pool, a 24-hour gym with an indoor basketball court, spas and concierge service. Optima representatives didn’t respond to a request for comment…
People who work at the Optima said Weinstein had received hypnotherapy at the complex. Pattie Freeman, who runs the Arizona Hypnotist, which has an office in the Optima, said she could not discuss whether she treated Weinstein because of patient confidentiality. Freeman said she treats a range of issues, including anger management as well as addictions to alcohol, drugs and sex.
Reckon they’ll need to add exorcisms to that list if they want to cure ‘ol Harvey.
He’s also been treated at the Meadows, an addiction centre in nearby Wickenburg, which also costs a chunk:
The Meadows [entrance below] declined to say how much it charges patients. But people in the addiction rehab industry estimate that the facility charges at least $1,000 per day for in-patient treatment and that health insurance would typically cover part of that.
The disgraced producer was also seen wearing a blonde wig whilst dining out one evening, and who can forget that double-slap backhander he took to the face in early January.
As per his attorneys, Harvey “would not be able to pay his child support obligations for at least the next year”. Funny that, because he has raked in decent cash via property sales:
Weinstein’s recent real estate transactions could improve his liquidity. He and [soon to be ex-wife Georgina] Chapman recently sold one of their properties in the Hamptons for $10 million — a seven-bedroom mansion they purchased four years ago. This month, he sold two other properties — a house and a nearby lot — in Westport, Conn., for a combined $16 million.
The movie mogul has reportedly listed one of his L.A. properties for rent — a two-bedroom cottage for $7,495 a month.
Tough life – talk about scraping the barrel to make ends meet.
