After being accused by multiple actors of sexual assault, Harvey Weinstein has entered sex-addiction rehab.

The disgraced Hollywood mogul — who continues to deny allegations of rape and harassment — has reportedly been struggling at the facility, falling asleep and talking on the phone (despite mobile phones being banned) during group therapy sessions.

“In one, Harvey arrived 15 minutes late,” a source told Page Six. “Then, when it was his turn to speak, he launched into a speech about how this is all a conspiracy against him.”

The source added how, while other patients told their personal stories, Weinstein fell asleep, only being “woken up by the ringing of his smuggled mobile phone. . . Harvey jolted awake, jumped up, immediately took the call and then ran out of the room.”

The fiasco is believed to have taken place on Tuesday, the same day Weinstein resigned from his former production company.

Weinstein has also been reportedly removed from group therapy sessions and is now being accompanied by a therapist at all times.

“He insists he never raped or assaulted anyone, and that all the encounters were consensual,” the source says. “He realises he has acted like an a**hole, but he still insists he’s not a rapist.”

Conversely, actors including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Lupita Nyong’o, and Angelina Jolie have all accused Weinstein of harassment, while Rose McGowan has accused him of rape.
