His wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, left him soon after the allegations surfaced, with police criminal investigations ongoing in London, Los Angeles and NY.
American film producer Harvey Weinstein has surrendered to police on sex crime charges. Weinstein raised his eyebrows as he heard it. He appeared pale, standing next to his lawyer Ben Brafman, while prosecutors described a bail arrangement.
Weinstein was released after posting $1 million bail and was fitted with a monitoring device which will track his movements.
Brafman, Weinstein's lawyer, told reporters outside the court that his client will enter a plea of "not guilty" to the charges. "I think, if anything, we have contributed to victims finally being believed".
New York City police detectives said in early November that they were investigating allegations by another accuser, "Boardwalk Empire" actor Paz de la Huerta, who told police in October that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.
Weinstein - who has faced an avalanche of accusations including from some of Hollywood's biggest stars - has repeatedly denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.
Harvey Weinstein turned himself in for arrest in NY on Friday on charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct in cases involving two women.
No charges have been filed against Weinstein in Los Angeles as of Friday.

"I haven't come out of the shock of it yet", she said.
Prosecutors said on Friday that Weinstein had been charged with two counts of rape and one count of a criminal sexual act involving two women, who were not identified.
Evans was among the first women to speak out about the producer. Evans said that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him at the meeting. McGowan wanted to see Weinstein behind bars because "we were sentenced to a prison, we were sentenced to years of it before anybody believed us..."
Speaking to Megyn Kelly, McGowan added, "I don't ever want to see him again".
"This wasn't a smile to say, 'Be on my side, ' or 'Hey, I'm innocent.' It was weird and suggestive that he may feel he is going to get away with this or that I've gotten away with this for this long", she explains. "But I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on him".
McGowan told the AP on Thursday that she was gratified but "still in shock" that Weinstein was expected to surrender.
The public allegations against Weinstein helped prompt a broad public reckoning about sexual misconduct.
As women opened up about Weinstein's history of sexually abusing and assaulting them, others from across the world came forward with their own accounts of being sexually harassed and assaulted by powerful men, triggering the global #MeToo movement.
