Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein was reportedly injured in a fall this weekend while behind bars.
Weinstein’s publicist, Juda Engelmayer, told CNN that the disgraced producer experienced dizziness before falling at Rikers Island in New York on Sunday. Englemayer claimed Weinstein, 67, doesn’t have access to his walker in jail and doesn’t walk steadily.
“Harvey says his head throbs all the time and thinks he has a concussion. He has not been officially diagnosed,” the publicist told CNN.
In late February, Weinstein was ordered to be held without bail following convictions for first-degree commission of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape.
Engelmayer told Page Six that Weinstein is housed at Rikers’ North Infirmary Command with two other men. He said Weinstein is “miserable” behind bars but is trying to make the best of things.
“He has had a lot of time to think about his life and be humbled, but he thinks it’s going to be a long, uphill battle from here,” Engelmayer told the tabloid.
Weinstein faces life in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for March 11.
