TMZ: Harvey Weinstein in Arizona for sex addiction treatment

After an onslaught of bombshell revelations about harassment and abuse, Harvey Weinstein will reportedly check in to Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg.

​TMZ is reporting that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is heading to a rehabilitation center in Arizona to treat behavioral issues including sex addiction amid sexual assault allegations.

Last week, The New York Times chronicled nearly three decades of sexual-harassment allegations against The Weinstein Company co-founder.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne recently joined the list of celebrities who say Weinstein harassed them. 

Weinstein's fashion designer wife Georgina Chapman announced Tuesday she's leaving him.

According to TMZ, Weinstein was initially supposed to receive treatment in Wickenburg reportedly at The Meadows where other celebrities, like Michael Phelps, have received treatment in the past.

The rehab center has a "gentle path program" which is a 45-day sex addiction treatment plan for men. It uses counseling plus therapies like meditation, yoga, and equine therapy. It also brings sufferers and their families together to learn coping mechanisms.

On Thursday, TMZ reported Weinstein, after debate within his camp, is now receiving treatment in the Scottsdale area.

Sky 12 followed a vehicle we believe carried Weinstein from the Scottsdale airport to the Phoenician resort in Scottsdale, where a man resembling Weinstein got out and entered a villa.

Weinstein's alleged trip to Arizona comes as another accused went public with claims of sexual harassment. 

Actress and model Zoe Brock claimed in a BBC interview that she was sexually harassed by the movie mogul while in a hotel room with him in France some 20 years ago.

"And yeah I was told that our friends would be meeting us there. We went up to the room and shortly after that his little entourage started peeling off one by one and Harvey walked out of the room and came back in naked,” Brock told reporter Victoria Derbyshire.

Brock went on to say Weinstein offered her a massage, which she denied before eventually locking herself in the bathroom.

“I was really repulsed and scared and I jumped up and I ran to the bathroom, which was through his bedroom to the left and locked the door and he chased me and was pounding on the door, and begging me to come out,” Brock said.

“When I came out, he was robed and sitting on the bed and he was crying,” she said.

Weinstein has not been charged with a crime in this or any other case, and the allegations against him remain accusations.

His lawyers have denied the allegations and released a statement saying the incidents were consensual.
