POLICE have reportedly responded to a call for help from the daughter of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein after she said her father was suicidal.
According to TMZ, a source said that Weinstein was arguing with his daughter, Remy, on the street outside her home.
Footage has now emerged of him storming out of her home and yelling at waiting paparazzi.
Weinstein reportedly yelled: “You’re making it worse” before trying to get a passing driver to stop and give him a ride, reports TMZ.
The NY Daily News reports that the 911 caller had said a man at the Los Angeles address may be suicidal.

“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 told the NY Daily News.
The LAPD confirmed that officers responded to a call for someone who was suicidal and depressed.
“Remy overreacted at the situation, out of love and concern for her father, and called the police, telling them he was depressed and suicidal,” a source told The New York Post.
“This situation is of course very hard for Harvey, but he is not suicidal — his heart is breaking for his kids.”
Remy, 22, later said that the argument was simply a family dispute.
WEINSTEIN’S MARRIAGE FALLS APART
Harvey Weinstein said earlier that the sexual abuse allegations have left him devastated: “I am profoundly devastated. I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else”, reports theNew York Post.
His wife, Georgina Chapman, 41, said she was leaving him on Tuesday night after news of the allegations broke.
Weinstein told theNew York Postthat he fully supported her decision.
“I didn’t stand in Georgina’s way when we discussed a separation, I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. I know she has to do what is best for the children, for herself and her business, she employs 130 people. I don’t want her or my children to be hurt any more than they already have. I truly love Georgina, and I hope one day we can reconcile, although right now I don’t know if that could possibly happen.”
Late last week, after the New York Times dropped its story alleging he harassed women over three decades, both Weinstein and Chapman told us they were staying together, and she was fully supportive of her husband of 10 years.
But according to another source, Chapman came under massive pressure over the weekend to separate herself from Weinstein for the sake of her children and to save her business.
The couple has two children together, a daughter, India Pearl, and a son, Dashiell.
The source added that Chapman spent the weekend speaking to advisers and publicists, and she made the decision to leave Weinstein once the New Yorker piece dropped, in which three women accused her husband of rape, plus stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie said he had sexually harassed them.
“Georgina always knew Harvey was no angel, but she was genuinely shocked and horrified by the number of women making claims against him, and the serious nature of the allegations,” the source continued.
Chapman said in a statement Tuesday night, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions.”
Weinstein himself contends that he believed all the encounters were consensual but has said all along, “I apologise to everyone who has been hurt by my actions.”
Meanwhile, many of Weinstein’s former Hollywood and political allies have spoken out against him. When asked how he feels about it, he said, “I don’t know what to say. With some [people I considered close friends], it saddens me.”
While he declined to comment on statements made by the Obamas and Hillary Clinton against him, other sources say he is heartbroken after Barack and Michelle released a statement expressing their disgust.
Weinstein was a big bundler for both Obama and Clinton and visited the White House many times during Obama’s presidency. He also offered former first daughter Malia a paid internship with The Weinstein Company this summer, and sources said he was always on his “best behaviour” around the teen.
Plus, Weinstein organised many events for Clinton during the last campaign, including a star-studded fundraiser for her at his Manhattan home in 2016.
DELEVINGNE’S THREESOME TRAP
Model Cara Delevingne says it was only some quick thinking on her behalf that got her out of an awkward situation with disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein.
In a lengthy statement posted on Instagram, the British model-turned-actress said that after meeting Weinstein at a hotel lobby he asked her to come up to his room, where another woman was waiting for the pair.
Weinstein then told the two women to kiss, which Delevingne said that she got out of by suddenly breaking into song.
Then, when she announced that she had to leave, Weinstein tried to kiss her on the lips as she prepared to walk out the door.
Delevingne, 25, said that she still got the part in the film, and has felt guilty about it ever since.
The actress has filmed two movies for the Weinstein Company, including her breakout role in their 2015 picture Paper Towns and the recently released Tulip Fever.
HANKS: ‘HARVEY’S A BIT OF AN A**’
Tom Hanks has revealed he was not shocked to hear about the allegations surrounding Weinstein.
“Somebody great said this, either Winston Churchill, Immanuel Kant or Oprah: ‘When you become rich and powerful, you become more of what you already are,’” he said.
While he has never worked with him, he said “it all just sort of fits.”
He said: “Just because you’re rich and famous and powerful doesn’t mean you aren’t in some ways a big fat a**. Excuse me, take away ‘fat.’ But I’m not, you know, I’m not the first person to say Harvey’s a bit of an a**.
“Poor Harvey — I’m not going to say poor Harvey, Jesus … Isn’t it kind of amazing that it took this long? I’m reading it and I’m thinking ‘You can’t do that to Ashley Judd! Hey, I like her. Don’t do that. That ain’t fair. Not her, come on. Come on!”
His comments come after George Clooney said the allegations against Weinstein were “indefensible”, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Heather Graham, Rose McGowan and more stars revealed their dealings with him.
WEINSTEIN’S PLEADING EMAIL
Harvey Weinstein reportedly sent a desperate email to Hollywood executives begging for a second chance before he was fired, reports the Independent.
The letter, which was shared on social media and MSNBC by Janice Min, and reportedly sent from the disgraced producer’s private email account, read:
“My board is thinking of firing me. All I’m asking is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counselling whether it be in a facility or somewhere else.
“Allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance. A lot of the allegations are false, as you know, but given therapy and counselling as other people have done, I think I’d be able to get there.
“If you can, I need you to send a letter to my private Gmail. The letter would only go to the board and no one else. What the board is trying to do is not only wrong but might be illegal and would destroy the company,” he wrote.
“If you could write this letter backing me getting the help and time away I need and also stating your opposition to the board firing me, it would help me a lot. I am desperate for your help. Just give me the time to get therapy. Do not let me get fired. If the industry supports me, that is all I need. With all due respect, I need the letter today.”
The Independent reports that one person replied to the email with, “No f**king chance”.
