HARVEY Weintstein’s three daughters have reportedly disowned him and he may lose contact with his two youngest kids after the convicted sex pest was found guilty of rape.
Remy (formerly known as Lily), 25, Emma, 22, and Ruth, 17 – who Weinstein shares with his first ex-wife, Eve Chilton – aren’t speaking to their rapist dad who faces 25 years in prison.
Weinstein’s defence lawyer Donna Rotunno admitted his three eldest daughters cut contact with him after the #MeToo trial, which saw multiple women highlight his brutal sex abuse.
Rotunno was keen to emphasize Weinstein’s good relationship with his youngest children India, nine, and six-year-old Dashiell, who he shares with his second wife, Georgina Chapman.
“His oldest daughters don’t speak to him. So I mean it’s horrific,” his lawyer told Mail Online. “The ripple effect of someone losing their freedom is beyond what any of us could comprehend.
“He’s been seeing the younger kids their whole lives. They live next door to each other, he has a great relationship with his younger children.”
Their mom left the movie mogul in 2017 when the sexual assault allegations against him emerged, citing the “tremendous pain” he caused so many women.
Chapman began dating Weinstein in 2004 after he left his first wife of 20 years and they tied the knot in December 2007.
Weinstein reportedly agreed to an eight-figure deal to end their doomed, decade-long marriage – but Chapman has since found love again with Oscar winning actor Adrien Brody, who she met through her ex-husband.
The English designer, who owns the fashion brand Marchesa, previously opened up about her own feelings of guilt when the extent of Weinstein’s abuse came to light.
In May 2018, she described how tough the situation was for her children and said she was seeing a therapist to cope with the revelations.
“At first I couldn’t, because I was too shocked. And I somehow felt that I didn’t deserve it,” she told Vogue.
“And then I realized: This has happened. I have to own it. I have to move forward.
“There was a part of me that was terribly naive – clearly, so naive. I have moments of rage, I have moments of confusion, I have moments of disbelief!
“And I have moments when I just cry for my children. What are their lives going to be?”
Although Weinstein’s eldest children have cut ties with their dad, Rotunno claims Chapman’s kids still “rely” on their father “on a daily basis.”
“They’re divorced but they work well together with the kids,” she said of Weinstein’s relationship with Chapman.
The dad-of-four will be checking in to the notorious New York jail on Rikers Island before his sentencing on March 11.
The shamed producer also faces another sex abuse suit in Los Angeles as authorities fear the jailed mogul may take his own life in another “Epstein incident.”
Weinstein was convicted on two of five counts of sex crimes brought against him in a Manhattan court earlier this week.
A jury found him guilty of a criminal sexual act in the first-degree against production assistant Mimi Haley and rape in the third-degree against aspiring actress Jessica Mann.
Weinstein had pleaded not guilty to all five before the previously deadlocked jury came to a definitive conclusion on Monday afternoon.
He was handcuffed and brought into police custody on Monday afternoon before being rushed to Bellevue Hospita with chest pains, where he is being treated for high blood pressure and heart palpitations.
But sources claimed he is “faking it a little bit” because he’s “scared of dying” in jail – but Rotunno insisted wheelchair-bound Weinstein’s ill-health is very “real.”
