After his wife left him and he was fired from his production company due to the growing number of sexual harassment claims against him, Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein responded to the affair: “Guys, I’m not doing okay.”

“I got to get help,” the 65-year-old told reporters as he was leaving his daughter’s house in LA. “You know what? We all make mistakes, second chance, I hope.” Yesterday, Weinstein’s daughter called the police and reported that her father was “suicidal and depressed.”

As reported by TMZ, Weinstein is now on his way to an Arizona treatment facility for sex addiction. “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” his representative stated. “Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances…Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance.”
