Harvey Weinstein has been spotted for the first time in days since dozens of sexual assault and harassment allegations have piled up against him.

The disgraced movie maker was approached by photographer's outside his daughter's house where he went on a bizarre tirade in front of rolling cameras.

As the 65-year-old was leaving the home in LA, he spoke to waiting paparazzi about how he was coping amid the sex scandal.

"I'm not doing okay, but I'm trying," he told paps. "I gotta get help guys. You know what, we all make mistakes, second chance I hope. Okay?"

The film producer's life has been under the microscope since a newspaper published explosive claims last week that the Hollywood big wig had been abusing his position of power for three decades, assaulting women and even paying some of them off to keep quiet.

Since then, dozens of other women have come forward claiming Weinstein assaulted them too, including some of the world's most famous female actresses.

As a result, it's believed the FBI are now set to investigate the alleged serial sex offender as well as the police.
