Female spy who duped actress on Weinstein's behalf unmasked as IDF veteran

Female spy who duped actress on Weinstein's behalf unmasked as IDF veteran

A series of sexual harassment and assault allegations involving co-founder Harvey Weinstein have triggered the studio's current crisis, but knowledgeable insiders say that the company faces staggering debt levels that could complicate a sale.

One account in The New Yorker article described two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, meeting with the actress Rose McGowan to extract information from her. McGowan has accused Weinstein of sexual assault.

NYPD investigators said on Friday that they were gathering "credible" evidence of rape by Weinstein and may seek an arrest warrant.

Urban, a 10-time CMA Award victor who has two daughters with his wife, Nicole Kidman, spoke to the Associated Press on the red carpet at Tuesday's BMI Country Music Awards in Nashville.

Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha told the Associated Press that the company leadership never contemplated the firm would contract with an intelligence firm to conduct a secret spying operation aimed at their reporting and reporters, including Jodi Kantor, who broke the story along with Megan Twohey on October 5.

The Israeli spy reportedly worked for the Black Cube firm in the capacity of "Operation Parachute", a mission which targeted ten women who claimed they suffered different forms of sexual harassment or assault at the hands of the famous Hollywood producer.

According to the Times, Boies issued a statement to employees defending his conduct, saying his agreement with the Times didn't specifically forbid him from working with outside clients, potentially against the Times' interests.

Another Times spokesperson had told TheWrap on Monday that Boies Schiller Flexner was representing the Times in two active cases.

Asked to comment on Weinstein's statement, Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., said, "We're not commenting on the investigation or any timeline".

He said he acquiesced to a request by Weinstein to execute the contract with Black Cube, a move he now regrets.

He added that any money the company made would be given to women's groups. "In retrospect, it's a shame we took the job". "I take responsibility for that".
