Just hours after the monumental sentencing, the convicted rapist demanded to serve his 23 year prison term at nearby Bellevue Hospital, complaining of ‘chest pains’ and compared the situation to Epstein, Your Content has learned.
“Weinstein said ‘now you do what I say’ and emphasized he wasn’t asking before shouting: ‘I said I’m telling you – you do exactly what I say!'” a source close to the condemned inmate told Your Content. “He kept screaming: ‘War! War! We are at war now!’ I don’t know what that referred to but it is being followed up on by authorities as near as I can tell.”
67-year-old Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison for third-degree rape and a criminal sex act as he maintained he simply had consensual “extramarital affairs” with the victims. This marks his second vacation at the hospital since being found guilty on Feb. 24.
Weinstein’s legal team also put officials on notice to instruct all prison guards and staff not to crack any Epstein jokes or make comparisons.
“We were told to cease and desist any contact with Weinstein before any memo went out. But all I know is if you compare the two it he nearly faints, literally like clockwork.”
Weinstein’s publicist says the prison staff directed him back to the hospital … not the perishing rapist.
“He was having chest pains and the Rikers staff decided for safety to send him back to Bellevue now,” the statement said. “He will be evaluated and likely will stay overnight. We appreciate the care and concern of the Department of Corrections officers and staff.”
