Embattled movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sparked concerns Wednesday he might be suicidal.
Los Angeles Police responded to his daughter Remy’s house at 10:37 am after a 911 call that a man at the address might be a danger to himself, a police source told the Daily News.
“The person said the subject was feeling suicidal and depressed, but when officers got there and conducted their investigation, it was revealed no suicidal remarks were made,” the source said.
“It was only a family dispute,” the source said.
According to TMZ.com, Weinstein got in a heated dispute with his 22-year-old daughter that spilled out into the street.
“You’re making it worse,” Weinstein reportedly yelled at her before flagging down a random vehicle driving past, begging for a ride.
Remy convinced her dad to go back inside the house, TMZ said, but by the time police arrived, Weinstein was gone.
In a statement from his spokeswoman, Weinstein denied ever forcing non-consensual sex.
Still, he apologized last week for causing unidentified people pain and promised to seek counseling.
In a statement Wednesday, Weinstein said he knew wife Georgina Chapman was leaving him amid the snowballing scandal because he green-lighted the decision himself.
“Over the last week, there has been a lot of pain for my family that I take responsibility for. I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family. We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart,” Weinstein said.
“In the end, she made the decision to separate. I understand, I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again,” he added.
“I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild.”
The statement came after TMZ reported Tuesday that Weinstein was getting on a plane for sex-addiction rehab in Europe.
A source told The News that Weinstein was indeed seeking treatment but not necessarily overseas – and not the type of residential group program typically associated with rehab.
“Everybody knows he’s going away. But it’s not rehab. It’s not that type of place. It’s more counseling,” the well-placed source said.
“He needs his peace. He’s been hounded all week. He lost his company and his wife. What more can you lose? He’s got to go find peace,” the source said.
Once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, Weinstein is facing a wave of allegations that he sexually harassed or assaulted a long list of staffers and actresses including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette.
Weinstein threatened to sue The New York Times over its Thursday bombshell, which opened the flood gates with the first on-the-record accusations from an A-list actress.
On Tuesday, famed attorney Gloria Allred challenged Weinstein to waive the statute of limitations for his accusers and give them a day in court with arbitration. She said the move would allow both Weinstein and his accusers a chance at “justice.”
With possible legal action on the horizon, one industry insider said Weinstein’s legal bills could squeeze him financially.
Weinstein’s wealth remains a murky picture, but he and Chapman recently slashed the price of one of their houses in Connecticut and sold it for $1.65 million earlier this month. They originally listed the house in Westport for $2.25 million in April.
Weinstein bought the property more than 20 years ago for $825,000.
