Watch: Harvey Weinstein’s contract said he could harass women if he paid enough money


Producer Harvey Weinstein had an unbelievable contract that said he could be sued by multiple women for sexual misconduct as long as he paid the company’s settlement and a fine.

Weinstein, the film mogul behind decades’ worth of Hollywood hits, may have been fired in violation of his 2015 employment contract, according to a new report.

TMZ reported in an exclusive:

According to the contract, if Weinstein "treated someone improperly in violation of the company's Code of Conduct," he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, "You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance."

The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a "cure" for the misconduct and no further action can be taken. Translation -- Weinstein could be sued over and over and as long as he wrote a check, he keeps his job.
