Alexandra Vino defends her boyfriend, Harvey Weinstein
Harvey Weinstein, 68 was convicted earlier this year for sexually abusing many female celebrities during his career. Hence, his wife Georgina Chapman divorced him. And since last year, he has a new rumored girlfriend. She was seen cozying up with him and her name is Alexandra Vino. Alexandra is 30 years of age and a singer and actress. Additionally, she is also an aspiring screenwriter. She defended Harvey and told New York Post:
“Everyone seems to hate Harvey but they don’t realize they don’t really hate Harvey.”
“They are being told how to feel. He is a scapegoat for this entire [#MeToo] movement and they’ve destroyed his life. It’s been like a ¬human sacrifice. People get 23 years in prison for murdering people, not for what he did,”
Harvey Weinstein and his sentence
Harvey was a famous American film producer. In October 2017, several women came forward to press charges of sexual assault and rape against him.

He was on bail of $ 1 million and was put on an ankle monitor after surrendering his passport.
A jury met in February 2020 and after deliberation for five days, on 24 February 2020, the court pronounced him guilty. The court sentenced him to 23 years in prison. He is serving this sentence at Wende Correctional Facility, Alden, New York. Now, 6 more women from Los Angeles have come forward to complain of sexual assault at the hands of Harvey.
