According to TMZ, Weinstein was dining with his sober coach at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain resort in Scottsdale Arizona when two men sat at a table adjacent to his.

Steve, a fellow restaurant patron, told TMZ that after he was seated next to Weinstein, he approached him and asked to take a photo.

Steve said to the organization that he "punched" Weinstein in the face a few times and he then fell backward. Steve said Weinstein became "belligerent" and told him to "buzz off", TMZ reported.

Steve told TMZ that Weinstein stumbled backward and nearly fell but the restaurant manager said the punches did not connect and that the man was drunk and disorderly. Weinstein declined, and the men left the restaurant.

He can also be heard calling Weinstein "a piece of s-t for what [he] did to those women".

In the video, Weinstein wears a stained gray T-shirt and black knit cap, which he removed after the backhander's patty-cake slap.

Weinstein was guided out of the restaurant by his sober coach who used his hands to prevent anyone from capturing anything on film.

The video was later shared by TMZ.

Video of the incident - which a source told DailyMail.com was at one point being shopped around for $100,000 - showed a much different story however, revealing that Weinstein was actually slapped in the face.

After news broke about the attack, Page Six reported that Weinstein and wife Georgina Chapman have reached a divorce settlement.
