HARVEY WEINSTEIN's contract may have contained what a friend of mine dubbed a "pay to prey" clause, pretty much the opposite of what you see in moset showbiz contracts. The Weinstein Co. was aware of prior payoffs at the time. Weinstein pleaded his case for getting a second chance in Hollywood on his way to "rehab" in Arizona — but he also seemed to take a parting shot at the celebs who've been bashing him. That list now includes Lea Seydoux (Spectre) and Claire Forlani (Mallrats, Meet Joe Black).
