AceShowbiz - Bob Weinstein was a bully like his digraced brother Harvey Weinstein, according to actress Jaime King. The former "Hart of Dixie" star said that the younger Weinstein brother bullied her into doing a photo for the cover of Maxim magazine.
In response to an article about Bob denouncing his brother Harvey amid the sexual harassment scandal, Jaime wrote on Twitter, "Bob you called me at home & called me a looser w/ no career threatening me b/c I refused to do Maxim cover for you."

"I truly hope that the properties revert to their rightful owners as you/Weinstein board were fully aware & abusive to actors/filmmakers," she added. "Sexual abuse is horrific. As is verbal/emotional abuse. So many artists/directors had beautiful films/careers destroyed by WC demands."
The 38-year-old actress received support from her "White Chicks" co-star Busy Philipps. "So much love to you Jaime," the "Cougar Town" alum wrote. Jaime was quick to reply, "So much love to you, my friend [love emoji]."
Jaime King starred in The Weinstein Company-produced movie "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" back in 2014. Her claim added bad reps to Bob Weinstein after he was accused of sexually harassing Amanda Segel, a showrunner of The Weinstein Company-produced series "The Mist".
Segel claimed that Bob made unwanted advances on her numerous times until her lawyer had to step in. She threatened to leave the show if he continued harassing her. " 'No' should be enough. After 'no,' anybody who has asked you out should just move on," she told Variety. "Bob kept referring to me that he wanted to have a friendship. He didn't want a friendship. He wanted more than that. My hope is that 'no' is enough from now on."
Bod denied the accusations. Meanwhile, Spike TV which housed "The Mist" said, "We take all allegations of this nature very seriously, and are investigating."
