Harvey Weinstein is reportedly hurt by the condemnation he has received from former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama over mounting accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against him.
The Hollywood producer wouldn't speak out specifically in regards to the Obamas, as well as to Hillary Clinton who also condemned him, but sources tell Page Six that he is grief-stricken by the Obamas' rebuke.
Weinstein, a longtime Democratic donor, helped raise money for both Obama and Clinton.
The Obamas said in a statement that they are "disgusted by the recent reports" about Weinstein and said that "any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status."
Meanwhile Clinton said she was "shocked and appalled," by the reports.
Speaking more broadly about his associates in Hollywood and political connections, who have turned against him since the first allegations came out last week from the New York Times, Weinstein said, "I don't know what to say. With some [people I considered close friends], it saddens me."
Weinstein also said that he is "profoundly devastated," after his wife, Georgina Chapman, announced she was leaving him amid the sexual assault controversy.
"I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else," he said.
