Harvey Weinstein had another meltdown in front of photographers as he left his daughter's home to board a private jet and fly to an exclusive rehab clinic in Arizona on Wednesday evening.
The clearly agitated disgraced movie mogul, who looked disheveled in a black T-shirt and loose jeans, told reporters: 'Guys, i’m not doing OK but I’m trying. I gotta get help. I’m hanging in, I’m trying my best.'
After at least 30 women in the film industry accused him of rape, groping and sexual harassment, he added: 'You know, we all make mistakes….second chance I hope.'
He was leaving his daughter's home in Los Angeles to fly to a rehab clinic in Arizona, believed to be The Meadows, which costs upwards of $40,000 a month and where former patients include Tiger Woods.
The undignified appearance before reporters ended a torrid day for Weinstein, during which he had a furious row with his daughter, fled her house and tried to flag down a stranger's car after she phoned 911 and reported him as 'suicidal'.

Weinstein was then pictured giving people the middle finger as he as he entered the offices of his lawyer Patty Glasser's flanked by stern-faced and suited male members of his entourage.
He later returned to his daughter's home before traveling to rehab following a slew of shocking allegations of rape and sexual assault from at least 30 Hollywood actresses.
As he headed toward the vehicle, Weinstein turned around to make an apparent attack on other Hollywood A-listers.
'And you know I've always been loyal to you guys, not like those F****** pr*** who treat you like s***. I've been the good guy,' he said.
Weinstein has found himself isolated and alone as the sexual assault allegations have piled up, leading him to complain that he has been abandoned by his Tinsel Town friends.
He boarded a private jet to Wickenburg, Arizona, on Wednesday night, the location of The Meadows center, where celebrities including Tiger Woods sought treatment following his DUI bust earlier this year.
THE MEADOWS REHAB FACILITY
The Meadows is an addiction treatment center located in Wickenburg, Arizona.
Patients can enter a myriad treatments, including programs focused on drug and alcohol addiction, depression, eating disorders, post traumatic stress disorder and sexual addiction.
A 30-day treatment program at the clinic costs approximately $40,000, which might be partially or fully covered by a patient's insurance.
The Meadows treatment facility in Arizona is potentially Weinstein's final destination as it is said people on his team wanted him to seek treatment there
The facility features equine therapy, expressive arts therapy, mindfulness meditation, yoga and intensive counseling.
Also available are spirituality and nutritional consultations, Tai Chi, acupuncture and group sessions.
It has a focused 45-day inpatient program for sex addiction and related behavioral issues.
The 14-acre campus features basketball courts, a sand volleyball court and a swingset for family visits
The facility also has a fitness center and an in-ground pool overlooking the nearby mountains.
The rooms at the facility are kept simple and plane, and each patient is required to have a roommate.
Each room comes with daily cleaning service and air conditioning.
Celebrities including Tiger Woods, Selena Gomez, Kate Moss and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh have sought treatment at the facility.
The Meadows has not confirmed if Weinstein is a patient.

A regular program at the clinic costs approximately $40,000 a month.
The apparent decision by Weinstein to seek treatment in Arizona and not Europe - as he had previously indicated - is believed to have been suggested by his brother, Bob Weinstein.
This comes after a DailyMail.com exclusive which revealed the FBI had opened an investigation into the movie mogul.
The fear in some quarters would have been a Roman Polanski-style situation where Weinstein managed to dodge a prosecution in the United States by remaining in Europe.
Polanski has managed to avoid US officials since he plead guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old in 1978 and left the country.
It is unclear if the FBI investigation relates in any way to Weinstein's decision to remain in the United States.
However, it is believed that Weinstein had booked flights to Switzerland to attend treatment there, meaning his choice of Arizona could have been a last minute change.

Weinstein was fired from his company on Sunday and on Tuesday his wife announced she is leaving him.
It was crystal clear from the start of Wednesday that Weinstein had not left Los Angeles for a European rehab as police were called in the morning over fears he was 'suicidal' at his daughter's home.
He was seen chasing down a random driver to see if he could get a ride in their car after arguing with his daughter.
TMZ reports that the disgraced movie mogul was heard screaming out just before he tried to flag down the vehicle: 'You're making it worse.'
Weinstein was at the Los Angeles home of his daughter, who was eventually able to persuade her father back inside the house.
Members of the Los Angeles Police Department arrived a short while after that, and said they were responding to a report from Lily, who goes by the name Remy, that her father was 'suicidal and depressed.'

Weinstein then fled the house just before LAPD responded to Lilly's call on Wednesday, at around 10:30am.
Lily subsequently told the officers her father was not a risk and would not harm himself, despite the statements she made earlier when she alerted authorities.
Before he flew to Arizona, rumors surrounding where he bound for rehab included staying in California.
Indeed, there will be a hearing to decide whether or not he should be removed from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this weekend - which he is not thought to be attending now.
The Academy is having its emergency hearing after calling the the sexual assault allegations against Weinstein 'repugnant'.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) has already suspended Weinstein's membership.
He has even said that he hoped to reclaim his position at the company he founded and reconcile with his wife Georgina Chapman after receiving treatment.
Chapman announced her decision to end the pair's marriage in a statement to People, saying: 'My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband.
'Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.'
Weinstein was flanked by a full entourage on his trip to his lawyer Patty Glaser's offices. The disgraced producer skipped out on his sex rehab trip Tuesday over frustrations he would not be allowed to have his cellphone in treatment
Weinstein became angry over not being allowed his mobile device as he is concerned he will not be able to keep in contact with business associates and his wife, who announced she is leaving him on Wednesday
A private jet was scheduled to take him to rehab on Tuesday, but as of Wednesday afternoon Weinstein was still in LA
That prompted Weinstein to give his own thoughts on the matter to Page Six.
'I know she has to do what is best for the children, for herself and her business, she employs 130 people,' said Weinstein.
'I don't want her or my children to be hurt any more than they already have. I truly love Georgina, and I hope one day we can reconcile, although right now I don't know if that could possibly happen.'
Chapman is keeping a low profile still, and cancelled a fashion preview for her brand Marchesa that had been planned for Thursday just 24 hours before the event.
Weinstein has his own work problems, which he seemed to be aware were coming based on an email he fired off just before he was fired on Sunday.
'My board is thinking of firing me. All I'm asking is, let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling,' wrote Weinstein in the email.
'Whether it be in a facility or somewhere else, allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance.'

He went on to state that 'a lot of the allegations are false' before asking that the men and women he contacted send an email to his personal account backing him, which he could in turn present to the Weinstein Company board.
'I need you to send a letter to my private gmail address,' wrote Weinstein.
'The letter would only go to the board and no one else.'
He continued: 'We believe that what the board is trying to do is not only wrong but might be illegal and would destroy the company.
'If you could write this letter backing me, getting me the help and time away I need, and also stating your opposition to the board firing me, it would help me a lot.'
The letters, if any were sent, did little good in the end, with the board of directors at Weinstein Company announcing on Sunday that they were terminating their founder in the wake of what they claimed were newly discovered allegations.
'In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged int the past few days, the directors of the Weinstein Company - Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar - have determined an have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,' the board wrote in a statement.
After leaving the property, Weinstein was persuaded back in but then left before LAPD arrived
It was a sudden move for the board, who on Friday said that Weinstein had taken an indefinite leave of absence.
Questions remain however about how the board was so in the dark given the number of settlements that have been paid out, with the first going back to an incident that happened in 1991 according to the Times.
Weinstein responded in a statement by saying that he was getting help, but then shortly after threatened to sue the paper for $50 million.
Board member Lance Maerov spoke to the The New York Times after the decision to terminate Weinstein on Sunday and that said that the executive had also violated the company's code of conduct in the past week.
He did not offer any additional details.
Maerov also revealed that there was much concern after Weinstein and his attorney Lisa Bloom met with the board on Thursday night, during which time the lawyer told the group that they could expect 'more and different reporting' that included 'photos of several of the accusers in very friendly poses with Harvey after his alleged misconduct.'
That same night a handout photo of Weinstein and a smiling Judd appeared in the New York Post alongside a statement from the Oscar-winning producer.
'I don't want her or my children to be hurt any more than they already have. I truly love Georgina', said Weinstein on Tuesday, before saying he was on his way to Europe for treatment. Wednesday's dramatic events proved otherwise

When LAPD officers turned up, Lily reassured them that her father had, in fact, no intention of self-harming
'This is not the time for Harvey or TWC to appear defiant or indignant,' wrote Maerov in an email to Bloom.
'It is time to repair, heal, accept responsibility and recover.'
He also wrote that Bloom had a potential conflict of interest given that Weinstein had agreed to develop a book she wrote into a series.
In another email to Bloom, Harvey's brother and partner Bob wrote: 'Perhaps, Harvey as he stated in the NY Times, to the world, should get professional help for a problem that really exists.'
On Friday, one-third of the nine-man board resigned in protest, 24-hours after the sexual harassment report threw the firm into chaos.
The company also stated that they were launching an internal probe into the claims against their disgraced co-founder.
Over 30 women have come forward at this time claiming they were victims of Weinstein's harassment and assault, with the alleged offenses he is accused of committing ranging from aggressive demands for massages to rape.
From A-list stars to budding actresses: The 33 women who accuse Harvey Weinstein of rape, groping and sexual harassment during his two decade reign of terror in Hollywood
- On Thursday New York Times published story alleging decades of harassment
- Since article dozens of women have come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein
- They include assistants, aspiring actresses and A-listers such as Angelia Jolie
By Charlie Moore for MailOnline
Many were young, powerless and afraid to speak out in case their careers were ruined.
For nearly three decades their accusations remained bottled up, some suppressed by pay-offs.
More than 30 women have now come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the man once described as 'God' of the film industry.
The accusations, including from some of the world's most famous actresses, range from inappropriate massages to rape.
Here is a list of those who have come forward so far.
The star said that when she was 22, Weinstein touched her and suggested having joint massages in a hotel bedroom before she started shooting the 1996 Jane Austen adaptation Emma. She told the New York Times: 'I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified'.

She said she told her then boyfriend Brad Pitt about the incident and he confronted the mogul. She said Weinstein then told her not to tell anyone and she feared getting fired.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 45, is an American actress, singer, and food writer who made her name starring in Seven (1995) and Emma (1996).
The actress told the New York Times she had to turn down advances from Weinstein in 1998 and chose never to work with him again. She said she warned other women about him.
She said: 'I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did.'
Angelina Jolie, 42, is cited as Hollywood's highest-paid actress. She made her screen debut as a child alongside her father, Jon Voight, in Lookin' to Get Out (1982).

The model wrote on her Instagram page about a meeting with Weinstein in which he 'asked her to kiss another woman.'
She wrote: 'As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room.
Delevigne wrote on her Instagram page about a meeting with Weinstein in which he 'asked her to kiss another woman.'
'At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave.He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room'.
Cara Delevigne, 25, is an English fashion model and actress. She signed with Storm Model Management after leaving school in 2009.
The French actress accused the mogul of jumping on her and trying to kiss her.
She wrote in The Guardian: 'We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. He tried more than once. This was never going to be about work. He had other intentions – I could see that very clearly. All throughout the evening, he flirted and stared at me as if I was a piece of meat.

'It was hard to say no because he’s so powerful. I’m an actress and he’s a producer. We are in the same industry, so its impossible to avoid him. I’ve seen how he operates: the way he looks for an opening. The way he tests women to see what he can get away with. That’s the most disgusting thing. Everyone knew what Harvey was up to and no one did anything. It's unbelievable that he’s been able to act like this for decades and still keep his career.'

She wrote on Medium: 'Harvey left the room, but not for long. He re-emerged naked a couple of minutes later and asked if I would give him a massage. Panicking, in shock, I remember weighing up the options and wondering how much I needed to placate him to keep myself safe.

'I told him I was uncomfortable and that I was angry that I had been tricked into this position.
