Transcript for Harvey Weinstein speaks out: 'I'm not doing OK'
Harvey Weinstein as he deals with those acquisitions, his company's board is also facing new questions about what they knew and one of Weinstein's most prominent collaborators Ben Affleck taking heat of his own. Linsey Davis here with the latest. Reporter: Good morning, George. Lots of turmoil in tinseltown. It's now turned to finger-pointing as there are questions who knew what when and if their own behavior crossed the line. Hanging in, I'm trying my best. Reporter: In this new video obtained by ABC news Harvey Weinstein speaks so cameras for the first time since those damning accusations of sexual harassment and rape. Guy, I'm not doing okay. But I'm trying. I gotta get help, guys. You know what, we all make mistakes. Second chance I hope, okay? Reporter: It's taken as the 56-year-old left Los Angeles reportedly headed to a rehabilitation clinic for behavioral issues including sex addiction. Get some help, man. Thank you. Reporter: The list of alleged victims of Weinstein's harassment is growing. Actress and model CARA delevingne posting on Instagram about an experience he claims to have had with the producer. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. And bond girl Leia sadu said we were talking on the sofa when he jumped on me and tried to kiss me. He's big and fat so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room thoroughly disgusted. This morning new questions about how much his company knew and when. "The New York Times" reports that despite a statement saying allegations of sexual misconduct came as an utter surprise, executives at the movie studio were grappling with the movie mogul's behavior as early as 2015. More than two dozen women have now accused Weinstein of harassment, abuse or rape. This is very much about someone who is out of control sexually that's not just an issue of somebody trying to be on a power trip. Reporter: Weinstein is not the first celebrity to go to rehab for an alleged sex addiction. Tiger Woods, Russell brand and Anthony Weiner have all publicly sought help but some experts stress there is a difference between addiction and aggressive behavior. It's not only wrong and completely wrong, but it's also irrational. Reporter: Now others are being pulled into the fray. Harvey Weinstein who believed in us and made the movie. Reporter: After Ben Affleck condemned him in a statement calling his alleged actions sick, this moment resurfaced on Twitter. So nice to see you. Reporter: The actor with an mtv host apparently groping her. He wraps his arm around me and comes over and tweaks my left boob. Reporter: Former veejay hilarie Burton retweeted that with girls I'm so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry. Sending love. Affleck yesterday apologized saying in a statement I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize. New York police detectives say they plan to review Weinstein's background to identify, locate and interview any of his potential victims. In a statement to "The new Yorker" Weinstein denies any allegations of nonconsensual sex and the academy awards plan to discuss the scandal this week. They have a lot to talk about. Let's talk to Dan Abrams. We heard from linsey. Thenew York police department is looking at this. Real criminal exposure for him. Certainly possible. The biggest fear for Harvey Weinstein has to be new alleged victims coming forward. Because of the ones we know of in "The new Yorker," "The new York Times," et cetera, there's really only one of the allegations from "The new Yorker" which would fit the definition of a criminal act. Assault. Assault and would fit within the statute of limitations, two questions, which is conduct and statute of limitations. One of those could but then again you need that person to come forward and want to move forward with a criminal case. I think the bigger concern for Harvey Weinstein is this is now going to open up the floodgates. You're going to see more people come forward and some of them may be relatively recent, remember, in New York state as long as it's in the last 15 years or so, and it was a significant sexual assault, first degree, no statute of limitations anymore on it. He's asking for a second chance. Yeah. That's not going to happen. I mean, you know, look, we've seen people come back from the lows of the low. America is the land of comebacks. I don't see how Harvey Weinstein comes back from this ever. And now you've got this new reporter in "The New York Times" saying the company's board knew at least five of these settlements. Is the company now facing a real risk of survival? They could certainly face a risk legally and that would be if someone knew, not one of the old ones where they settled but someone new comes forward and is within the statute of limitations. It is critical. The statute of limitations is pretty short when you're talking about civil cases so it would have to be something that happened relatively recently. The last couple of years. And they would say I'm suing this person and the company because the company knew or should have known this was happening. That is a real risk but it's going to involve a new plaintiff and I would be very surprised if that didn't happen in the next month or so. Okay, Dan Abrams, thanks very much. There has to be some people questioning -- I mean how could the board not know if they were part of making these settlements. Yeah, the question is going to be exactly what did though know about the settlements. Exactly what did they know about the facts. What were they agreeing to, et cetera. On a moral level, you know, I think you can throw up your hands and say, come on. How did this continue to happen.
