Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein fell Sunday morning at Rikers Island jail, his spokesperson Juda Englemayer tells CNN. She adds that he was dizzy before he fell: "Harvey says his head throbs all the time and thinks he has a concussion. He has not been officially diagnosed."

Prior to his return to Rikers this weekend, Weinstein was stationed at Bellevue Hospital complaining of heart issues. On Wednesday, the 67-year-old had a heart procedure to insert a stent. It seems his time behind bars has given Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault by more than 80 women, time to think. 

Englemayer says he has "had a lot of time to think about his life and what he's done," adding, "He said he wasn't a nice guy and that's how he got here."

Englemayer tells Page Six: “He’s miserable but trying to be optimistic as best he can. He has had a lot of time to think about his life and be humbled, but he thinks it’s going to be a long, uphill battle from here.”=

Weinstein will be sentenced on March 11th and is facing up to 29 years in prison after a jury convicted him of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree a count of rape in the third degree on February 24th.
