So what’s next for the disgraced movie mogul?

Weinstein boarded a private plane on Tuesday night and was en route to a European rehab center, which treats s*x addiction, TMZ reports. It’s a live-in facility that will treat both s*xual and behavioral issues. The website noted Weinstein was “surprisingly calm” in light of the situation, and he was confident that he would be treated and be able to make a fresh start.
CNN confirmed with Weinstein’s rep that he was “bound for rehab.” However, the network declined to say where he will be treated and what he will be treated for. Multiple sources also confirmed to People magazine that Weinstein has plans to enter a residential treatment facility.
A rep for Weinstein has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.
Following all that, Weinstein’s wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, announced on Tuesday afternoon that she was leaving her husband. However, following her statement about the split, Weinstein told TMZ he “encouraged her” to leave him. (“I sat down with my wife, Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family,” he told TMZ. “We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. In the end, she made the decision to separate.”)
Rehab actually seems like the safest place for Weinstein right now. While he logs his 28 days (or more), there is talk that he could face criminal charges in some of these cases, depending on the statute of limitations — and obviously the accusers’ participation — in the various locations around the globe where they were alleged to have occurred.
