Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has reached a provisional $44 million (R637 million) settlement with alleged victims and creditors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
The deal, which has not yet been signed, aims to cover all civil proceedings filed against the fallen Hollywood mogul, including those in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Weinstein's spokesperson denied to comment.
The settlement does not exempt Weinstein from the criminal proceedings brought against him for sexual assault, for which he will go on trial in September.
Weinstein - a catalyst for the #MeToo anti-harassment movement - has been charged over the alleged assaults of two women and faces life in prison if he is convicted at the trial, which could last five weeks.
