Harvey Weinstein Said Jennifer Aniston ‘Should Be Killed’, Disturbing Court Documents Reveal

Harvey Weinstein made disturbing and sinister comments about Jennifer Aniston, newly released court documents have revealed.

Last month, the disgraced film mogul was found guilty on two counts, of a first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape, though he was found not guilty of the most serious charge of first-degree rape.

He is currently awaiting sentencing, which is expected to be announced at a New York courthouse today (Wednesday 11 March).

On Tuesday, certain court documents relating to the case were unsealed, revealing some of the evidence levied against the 67 year old.

One of the most jarring, was an email dated from October 2017 in which Weinstein wrote: ‘Jen Aniston should be killed’, reports Variety who have reviewed the email.

The sinister message was in response to a journalist from the National Enquirer who had reached out for comment to Weinstein‘s former publicist Sallie Hofmeister, regarding an allegation that Weinstein had groped the Friends star.

Aniston has confirmed that the Enquirer’s allegation was actually untrue, with her representatives telling Variety: ‘The National Enquirer claims are false. Jennifer has not been harassed or assaulted by Harvey.

The email sent by Harvey came just weeks after the New York Times reported the first of many allegations of sexual assault and harassment levied against the former movie magnate. Allegations which were made by former assistants, staff at his production company and famous actors including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cara Delevingne and more.

Weinstein was found guilty on two counts so far, but has denied all other allegations of non-consensual sex.

The report also revealed details of the culture which allowed Weinstein to remain unaccountable for so long, including the routine use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) and settlement offers which accusers were asked to sign in exchange for never repeating their claim to anyone, including their close friends and family, health professionals and colleagues.

Last year, Aniston was asked by Variety about the Weinstein scandal and the subsequent #MeToo movement which was embraced by Hollywood and the world over as a result of the allegations.

She told the film magazine she had previously witnessed Weinstein‘s ‘bullying’ behaviour when working with him on the 2005 movie Derailed.

After explaining that her friend had been forced to move from her seat at a dinner after Weinstein ordered her to, which she described as ‘such a level of gross entitlement and piggish behaviour’, she detailed how Weinstein tried to make her wear his ex-wife’s clothing label Marchesa to a film premiere. When she declined, he told her she had to wear it, to which she re-affirmed her stance.

‘What was he doing to do? Come over here and make me wear it?’ she said.

ELLE UK has reached out to Aniston‘s representatives for comment.
