While Harvey Weinstein has not been charged with a crime over recent multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment, police are investigating past allegations.
Earlier this week, The New Yorker reported 13 women claim the famed movie producer sexually harassed or assaulted them and three of them accuse him of rape. Weinstein's rep said that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein."
E! News has learned that the New York Police Department is opening a new investigation in light of the claims that have been published in the news. A spokesperson said it is an active investigation and is being investigated by the Special Victims Division. No details about a specific case were given.
"Based on information referenced in published news reports, the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter," a New York Police Department spokesperson told E! News on Thursday. "No filed complaints have been identified as of this time and as always, the NYPD encourages anyone who may have information pertaining to this matter to call the CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS."
Weinstein has not commented. On Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter said the producer added top criminal defense attorney Blair Berk, who has represented Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan. to his legal team.
