Harvey Weinstein has been rushed to the hospital after complaining of chest pains.
The disgraced movie mogul was on his way to the infirmary at Rikers Island but was rerouted and taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan on Monday, a representative for Weinstein told Variety. His lawyer Donna Rotunno told USA Today that Weinstein was suffering from high blood pressure.
Weinstein’s representative had no comment when contacted by PEOPLE.
The incident happened after a New York City jury found Weinstein, 67, guilty of a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree and he was remanded to jail until sentencing.
Weinstein was found not guilty on three other charges, including predatory sexual assault.
In a statement to PEOPLE, Weinstein’s lawyers, Rotunno and Damon Cheronis, said, “While he was not convicted on the most serious charges, we are disappointed in the verdict and will be filing an appeal. There are issues in this trial that were extremely troubling, and they prejudiced Mr. Weinstein’s ability to have his case fairly judged.”
“…In the meantime, we are working on assuring that Mr. Weinstein is brought to Rikers’ Island ‘s North infirmary unit (NIU) at the Anna M Kross center complex or in protective custody so that he can get the best medical supervision and care possible.”
