JAY-Z Looking to Purchase Harvey Weinstein's Stake in The Weinstein Company

Harvey Weinstein got fired from the company that bears his name on his day off.

Weinstein was ousted from TWC on Sunday following explosive allegations of sexual assault. "When the call originally came in it was reported there was a male "feeling suicidal and depressed".

According to TMZ Weinstein was heard yelling at his daughter "You're making it worse" before flagging down a vehicle and begging for a lift.

Harvey Weinstein's daughter called 911 to say her dad was suicidal Wednesday morning, and police responded. At the time, Remy was able to convince her father to return indoors, but by the time police arrived Weinstein had already left the building.

Weinstein pictured with daughter Remy in happier times. Police then arrived at the home shortly thereafter, but Weinstein had left. "IS Harvey Weinstein", the source said. In the past, he's worked on acclaimed films like Shakespeare in Love, Gangs of New York, Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Chicago, The Aviator, The King's Speech, and Django Unchained, among many others.

In a statement Tuesday night, Weinstein Co.'s board of directors said they were "shocked and dismayed" by the latest allegations and that they are "committed to assisting with our full energies in all criminal or other investigations of these alleged acts".

According to TMZ, Jay and his private investors that consist of a billionaire and famous movie producer are thinking of purchasing Harvey's 23% interest in the company.

Following the publication of both reports, several Hollywood elites, including Meryl Streep, have publicly denounced Weinstein.
