Ren├â┬⌐e Zellweger Absolutely Did NOT Perform ‘Sexual Favors’ For Harvey Weinstein!

renee zellweger denies harvey weinstein sexual favor claims

Do NOT come for Ren├â┬⌐e Zellweger‘s good name.

On Thursday, the Oscar winner’s team went on the record to publicly denounce claims that the Chicago actress had inappropriate sexual encounters with Harvey Weinstein in order to further her career. Snap! Snap!

This unsavory claim came to light in a class-action lawsuit which six women recently filed against the Hollywood heavyweight. In the legal document, it’s alleged that Zellweger and Charlize Theron both furthered their acting careers by performing “sexual favors” for the 65-year-old.

Apparently, Weinstein told the one actress “that Rene├î┬üe Zellweger, Charlize, Theron and other actresses gave sexual favors.” And then asked the aspiring starlet if she wanted her career to be “more than just this little teen film?” Gross.

Upon realizing her name was allegedly used in a manipulation tactic, Ren├â┬⌐e’s camp set the record straight about her professional relationship with Harvey. In a statement to the press, a rep for the industry vet noted:

“If Harvey said that, he’s full of shit.”

Zellweger has starred in several Harvey-led projects — including her Oscar winning performance in Cold Mountain. The lawsuit against Weinstein claims that the powerhouse’s extensive efforts to coverup his bad behavior amounts to civil racketeering. The suit dropped a day after The New York Times published an in-depth expos├â┬⌐ about the disgraced filmmaker.

Earlier this week, Harvey’s legal reps, Blair Berk and Ben Brafman, defended that their client remembers the interactions differently. In fact, they boldly disputed allegations that Harvey made inappropriate advances towards the alleged victims. They stated to People:

“Mr. Weinstein has never at any time committed an act of sexual assault, and it is wrong and irresponsible to conflate claims of impolitic behavior or consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of criminal conduct. There is a wide canyon between mere allegation and truth, and we are confident that any sober calculation of the facts will prove no legal wrongdoing occurred. Nonetheless, to those offended by Mr. Weinstein’s behavior, he remains deeply apologetic.”

We’re not sure we’re buying that, especially since over 50 women have accused the indie movie mogul of sexual misconduct. Smh.
