Monday’s guilty verdict must have really done something to Harvey Weinstein.
As we reported, the disgraced film producer and entertainment mogul
According to media reports, the convicted rapist was being taken to Rikers Island immediately after his guilty verdict when he began to suffer from high blood pressure and heart palpitations. A medic in the ambulance deemed the symptoms severe enough to divert to the hospital, and so Harvey spent Monday evening not in jail, but in Bellevue Hospital Center with doctors monitoring his heart and blood pressure.
The 67-year-old does suffer from ailments including diabetes and chronic back problems, so there’s some precedent here for him to have some kind of medical emergency, especially on a stressful day like that. But even so, a source who spoke to Page Six claimed the disgraced producer was “faking it a little bit” after the conviction came down that afternoon. OMG!
