  • Ashley Judd and 7 other women have come forward with claims of abuse

She said: "You know he's a very rambunctious, feisty character, but I've never heard him like this".

"I have resigned as an adviser to Harvey Weinstein", Bloom wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Davis declined to comment through his office.

"I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time", Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing to North Carolina for a fundraising event, according to a video released by CNN.

The scandal was pounced on by Republicans because Weinstein has been a major backer of Democrat candidates.

The statement was signed by four of six remaining board members.

Dunn, the managing director of K-Street firm SKDKnickerbocker, released a statement acknowledging she spoke to Weinstein following the report but noted that the firm's "commitment to defending women's rights remains as strong as ever".

The Weinstein Company board of directors - including his brother Bob Weinstein, Tarak Ben Ammar, Lance Maerov and Richard Koenigsberg - stated Friday evening that the company will launch its own investigation into the claims during Weinstein's "indefinite" leave.

During an appearance Friday morning on Good Morning America, Bloom, who had been advising Weinstein on gender and power dynamics, said he had behaved inappropriately and agreed with an interviewer who characterized his reported actions as illegal.

"I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein", she tweeted.

Weinstein's then-attorney Lisa Bloom said in a statement that Weinstein "denies numerous accusations as patently false", but he still said that he "bear [s] responsibility for my actions" in an interview to The New York Post on Friday.

Weinstein's lawyer said in a statement this week that he plans to sue The New York Times.

The report also stated that Weinstein had reached at least eight settlements with women who had claims against him.

Bloom announced earlier Saturday that she was stepping down from her role as Weinstein's adviser.

Bloom has been under heavy scrutiny since deciding to represent a man accused of sexual harassment. when she nearly always represents victims.

In the days since the Weinstein scandal broke, the 65-year-old producer has sent a series of mixed messages in response to the lurid allegations. "Georgina will be kicking my ass to be a better human being and to apologise to people for my bad behaviour, to say I'm sorry, and to absolutely mean it".
