UPDATE (May 25, 2018, 9:50am) As expected, Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to police in Manhattan on Friday morning, and was arrested on charges of rape, committing a criminal sex act, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct, according to the New York Police Department. The judge set a $10 million bond or the option to pay $1 million in cash for bail (and will require him to surrender his passport and wear a tracking device), according to CNN. He is expected to appear in court later today.

The original story continues below.

Harvey Weinstein is about to face the music. Two law enforcement officials have revealed to The New York Times that the disgraced film executive will face charges from the Manhattan district attorney's office and he plans to turn himself in on Friday.

The charges have not yet been announced, but he has been under investigation by police departments in New York, Los Angeles and London and it is believed that they will stem from actress Paz de la Huerta's 2010 rape allegation and accuser Lucia Evans' contention that he forced her to have oral sex while at a business meeting in 2004.

NYT also reported that federal prosecutors in Manhattan are now investigating if he violated federal stalking laws.

His ex-wife, designer Georgina Chapman, received eight figures in their divorce and recalled his positive qualities even through her devastation for the May issue of Vogue.

"He’s charismatic," she told the publication. "He’s an incredibly bright, very learned man. And very charitable. He paid for a friend of mine’s mother, who had breast cancer, to go to a top doctor. He was amazing like that. He is amazing like that. That is the tough part of this ... this black-and-white thing ... life isn’t like that."
