Remy Weinstein, daughter of Harvey Weinstein, made a call to 911 this week to report that her father was suicidal.
This, in the wake of the sexual allegations that continue to have new light shed on them and of his behavior.
The two began to argue and Harvey eventually shouted at her”You’re making it worse” then proceeded to wave down a car for a ride. By the time law enforcement arrived Harvey was gone and despite the phone call she placed she told them nothing of any suicidal statements he may have made.

Now, apparently, the FBI is officially involved and from what I’ve seen they’re worried he may flee the country a la Roman Polanski.
As reported by Daily Mail:
The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.
DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump‘s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.
While it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Sessions, the move is likely to be seen in a political light given Weinstein’s friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton.
The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein plans to head to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.
The FBI can both look at whether he has committed any federal crimes in the U.S. and prepare extradition proceedings if he remains in Europe.
Among the allegations against Weinstein, which the FBI is expected to examine, is that he forced Lucia Evans, a student who wanted to be an actress, to perform oral sex on him in New York in 2004.
New York State has no statute of limitations on rape and criminal sexual acts – its legal term for forced oral or anal intercourse.
