The UK news states he has fled to a clinic in Europe to get treatment for sex addiction. He is facing 3 rape allegations. He will need some support if he's going to survive what he will have to face.

"The UK news states he [Harvey Weinstein] has fled to a clinic in Europe to get treatment for sex addiction."
Why didn't Harvey Weinstein seek such treatment earlier? Did he become aware of his
supposed 'sex addiction' problem *only after* he's been accused of raping several women?
"He will need some support if he's going to survive what he will have to face."
Will he need as much as support as a rape victim in surviving what she has experienced?
"He is being torn to shreds by the media frenzy."
Reportedly, Harvey Weinstein has used his powerful public relations machine to attack
and defame some women who had refused his sexual advances.
"That's the price of fame and wealth."
For many years, his fame and wealth gave Harvey Weinstein the most enjoyable 'perk' of
sexual access to many attractive, naïve, vulnerable young women who were afraid of him.
I would submit that such a 'perk' is *priceless* (sarcasm intended).
" I must admit that I feel some sympathy for him [Harvey Weinstein]."
When Gretchen Carlson initially accused Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, the Fox News Channel
trotted out a line-up of its loyal prominent celebrity women, who staunchly defended him.
Here's a celebrity woman who supports (or supported) Harvey Weinstein:
"Donna Karan defends Harvey Weinstein: 'Are women asking for it?'
Fashion designer praises producer accused of harassment and suggests women
‘presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality’ are asking for trouble."
"Fashion designer Donna Karan has come to the defence of film producer Harvey Weinstein
by praising the movie mogul and saying women who dress sensually are asking for trouble."
"Karan said women who dressed provocatively were asking for trouble.
“You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they
are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble."
"Karan’s comments were seized on by Rose McGowan, one of Weinstein’s accusers,
who called the designer “scum in a fancy dress”."
After some other Hollywood actresses condemned Donna Karan and implied that they
would boycott her products, Donna Karan claimed that her comments supporting Harvey
Weinstein had been taken out of context and misunderstood. Damage control, anyone?
