Weinstein back in hospital due to 'chest pains'

Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was admitted to hospital after he was sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.

According to his spokesperson, the 67-year-old and wheelchair bound producer was back in Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital for his "ongoing heart problems and chest pains".

Weinstein was suffering from chest pains and medical staff at Rikers Island decided to he went to Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in the U.S, barely six days after he left the same facility.

"Weinstein is being taken to Bellevue Hospital Ward to treat him for his ongoing heart problems and chest pains," a spokesperson for the Oscar winning producer told 'Deadline'. Weinstein was discharged from Bellevue on March 5. He was then shifted to Rikers' North Infirmary Command, where he had undergone mild surgery just a few days beforehand for a blockage in his heart.
