Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to rape, criminal sex act charges

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning to rape and criminal sex act charges in New York.

>> Read more trending news

Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in a hotel room and forcing another to perform oral sex in his office, according to The Associated Press.

Weinstein turned himself in to authorities last month. He was charged with one count each of first-degree rape, third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sex act.

His bail was previously set at $1 million, allowing him to remain free while he awaits trial.

He has denied allegations that he forced himself on women. His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, last month challenged the credibility of the alleged victims and said his client is confident that he’s going to clear his name. 

>> Harvey Weinstein indicted on first-degree rape, other charges by New York grand jury, reports say

Dozens of people have accused Weinstein of inappropriate sexual behavior, ranging from allegations of rape to claims of sexual harassment, after the Times published a report last year detailing complaints made against Weinstein over nearly three decades. Weinstein, who co-founded entertainment company Miramax, was ousted from his position at The Weinstein Company in the wake of the Times report. 

>> Harvey Weinstein investigations launched in London, New York

New York police opened an investigation into Weinstein in 2015, after a Filipina-Italian model told officers that she was groped by Weinstein without consent. Authorities later said they declined to press charges in the case because of a lack of evidence.

Police said last year that they were working to learn of any additional complaints against Weinstein.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The Craig McDean-shot cover is only the surface. In the magazine, Grande talks about her difficult year in which 22 people died and 59 others were injured when a male suicide bomber self-detonated outside Manchester Arena. 

“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it's a real thing,” she said. “I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn't even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn't even say anything. I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

Grande also opened up about her anxiety, which she says got worse after the attack.

“My anxiety has anxiety… I've always had anxiety. I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been.”

Grande recently released a music video for “No More Tears Left to Cry,” her lead single from her upcoming album. “Sweetener.” The last shot in the video includes a worker bee in tribute to the city.

The July issue of British Vogue is on newsstands June 8.
