He has been trying to sell the lavish home since April and offloaded it days before he was accused of sexually assaulting or harassing at least 30 women in the movie industry.

Weinstein has owned the property since 1995, when he bought it for $825,000.

Weinstein, who is currently embroiled in controversy after actresses including Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow alleged serious sexual misconduct, now potentially faces paying out millions in legal fees and further payments to his alleged victims.
