Harvey Weinstein, James Toback Under Investigation by Beverly Hills Police Department

The Beverly Hills police department has opened investigations into Harvey Weinstein and James Toback stemming from multiple complaints received about the individuals, Variety has confirmed.

“These cases are currently under investigation and no further information will be released at this time,” police said in a statement.

Weinstein has been accused by over 60 women of sexual harassment stemming back decades after an explosive New York Times report, and The Los Angeles Times published a shocking report on Oct. 22 that detailed accusations of sexual harassment against Toback by 38 women, going back to the ’80s.

Both men have denied all allegations of sexual misconduct. Toback responded to the allegations on Friday in an expletive-laden interview, saying, “The idea that I would offer a part to anyone for any other reason than that he or she was gonna be the best of anyone I could find is so disgusting to me. And anyone who says it is a lying c—sucker or c— or both. Can I be any clearer than that?”

Weinstein is already under investigation by London’s Metropolitan Police, New York PD, and LAPD after complaints were filed against him, and was fired from The Weinstein Company days after the Oct. 5 Times report. This is the first publicly acknowledged police investigation opened into Toback.

Since the allegations against Weinstein, numerous women and men have come forward alleging misconduct by several notable individuals throughout the industry, including ex-APA agent Tyler Grasham, who became the subject of an LAPD investigation over the weekend.
