68-year-old convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein has come down with a fever at his maximum security prison in upstate New York and is being tested for the coronavirus.
He is currently in isolation with 101 degree fever and is reportedly “doing poorly.”
“We can confirm that Mr. Weinstein has a fever and is being closely monitored by the excellent medical staff [at the Wende Correctional Facility] for which the entire legal defense team is grateful,” his reps, Juda Engelmayer and Craig Rothfeld, said in a statement.
There were reports Weinstein had coronavirus back in March, but our sources say he was never officially diagnosed.
The sources say Weinstein’s current battle is anything but a mild case … we’re told given his overall health, his age and current illness — he is at extreme risk.
