Following the guilty verdict in the former Hollywood film mogul's Los Angeles trial, many are asking where is Harvey Weinstein now and what will happen to him next?
It's the scandal that shook up the film industry and continues to haunt Hollywood. In October 2017, the New York Times published an investigation detailing accounts from several women accusing Mr Weinstein of abuse and harassment. This was followed five days later by another article in The New Yorker - alleging further sexual misconduct against woman at the hands of the movie producer.
Credited with propelling the #MeToo movement, legal action was brought against him and the Harvey Weinstein downfall began. Now, the once celebrated film producer has been found guilty of rape for the second time at a trial in Los Angeles, two years after he was convicted at his first trial in New York. His return to the headlines has many wondering where is Harvey Weinstein now?
Where is Harvey Weinstein now?
Harvey Weinstein is currently at the Correctional Treatment Centre - the medical centre within the Twin Towers jail in Los Angeles. It is here that the 70-year-old is serving a 23-year prison sentence, after a jury found him guilty of sexual assault and rape in February 2020.
Harvey Weinstein was extradited to California following his conviction in March that same year, prior to which he was serving his sentence at Wende Correctional Facility in Buffalo, New York - a maximum security prison.
Lawyers for the disgraced movie producer filed to appeal the verdict, but in June 2022 a New York state appeals court upheld the sentence. Mr Weinstein was convicted of assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haleyi and raping former aspiring actress Jessica Mann.
Now, Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of rape and two sexual assault charges in a second trial that took place in Los Angeles, and faces up to 24 years in prison when he is sentenced.
The woman who Weinstein has been found guilty of raping is known as Jane Doe 1, to protect her anonymity. The jury could not reach verdicts on allegations by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of Californian governor Gavin Newsom, and a woman known as Jane Doe 2. He was also acquitted of sexual battery against an accuser known as Jane Doe 3.
The British Crown Prosecution Service confirmed in June 2022 that additional charges were being brought against Weinstein. The Metropolitan Police have charged him with two counts of indecent assault against a woman in London during August 1996.
Mr Weinstein has denied all allegations and has pleaded not guilty to charges brought against him.
The former film executive has seen a decline in health over the past few years and underwent back surgery in 2019. He was photographed using a walking aid during the 2020 trial and has used a wheelchair in previous court appearances.
Inside jail, Mr Weinstein is said to be struggling with cardiac issues, sleep apnea, diabetes and eye sight problems.
Where is Harvey Weinstein's wife now?
Harvey Weinstein's ex-wife Georgina Chapman is now in a relationship with Hollywood actor Adrien Brody. The two made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Tribeca Film Festival in July 2020. More recently they stepped out together at the 2022 Met Ball Gala.
The English fashion designer filed for divorce from Weinstein in October 2017 - just days after the accusations of sexual harassment and assault became public. Their divorce was finalised in July 2021, with Chapman saying at the time, "My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions."

A source told PEOPLE that Georgina received between $15 to 20 million as part of the divorce settlement.
Georgina Chapman is Harvey Weinstein's second wife, and the pair got married in 2007. They were married for 10 years and have two children together: daughters India Pearl and Dashiell.
"My head was spinning. And it was difficult because the first article was about a time long before I’d ever met him, so there was a minute where I couldn’t make an informed decision," she said. "And then the stories expanded and I realized that this wasn’t an isolated incident. And I knew that I needed to step away and take the kids out of here."
Harvey Weinstein has an additional three children from his first marriage to Eve Chilton - Remy (previously Lily), Emma and Ruth. The two married in 1987 when Eve was working as his assistant. They divorced in 2004.
What is Harvey Weinstein's net worth?
According to CelebrityNetWorth, Harvey Weinstein is worth $25 million in 2022. This is a dramatic difference to his former net worth when he was a working film producer - with Time Magazine estimating his prior fortune as $240-300 million.
Following the accusations of sexual assault and harassment, Harvey was fired from The Weinstein Company on October 8, 2017. This lack of income, plus his divorce settlement have no doubt contributed to a decline in his wealth.
In 2020, his ex-wives joined forces to freeze £4.5 million of the disgraced director's remaining assets. This meant at the time that he was unable to file his appeal, because he didn't have the money to pay his lawyers to do the paperwork.
How many oscars does Harvey Weinstein have?
Harvey Weinstein has two oscars in total. He won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love starring Gwyneth Paltrow, and his second Oscar was for musical film Chicago - which also won Best Picture in 2003.
The 70-year-old was expelled as a member of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in October 2017. The decision was made following the publication of the New York Times and New Yorker investigations.
"We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over," read a statement from the Academy at the time.
Whilst he's no longer a member, Weinstein technically still has his Oscars as they were never formally taken back.
Though he only has two Oscar wins as producer, his influence before the sexual assault allegations was astronomical. In an analysis of Academy Award acceptance speeches between 1966 and 2016, Weinstein's name was mentioned and praised in 34 speeches.
