Harvey Weinstein was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center as a ‘precautionary measure’ Monday evening shortly after his rape conviction in Manhattan Criminal Court, his representative told PageSix.
The disgraced movie mogul was suffering high blood pressure when he was redirected to the hospital by a medic in the ambulance, his representative Juda Engelmayer told the outlet.
Weinstein, 67, had been charged in California in January with forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint, stemming from two separate incidents over two days in 2013.
He was found guilty of several sex crimes Monday.
