U.S. banking giant Goldman Sachs has confirmed it is "exploring options" for its near $1 million (£752,000) stake in the Weinstein Company amid growing allegations of sexual assault by film producer Harvey Weinstein.
The two have worked together for decades, with Weinstein first distributing Tarantino's 1992 film "Reservoir Dogs".
Tarantino's statement reads: "For the last week, I've been stunned and heartbroken about the revelations that have come to light about my friend for 25 years Harvey Weinstein".
Tarantino issued a statement via actress/director Amber Tamblyn's Twitter account on Thursday (October 12), describing himself as "stunned and heartbroken" about the allegations facing Weinstein.
Harvey and Bob Weinstein's former production company, Miramax, was integral to Tarantino's success.
She prefaced the tweet by saying she had a "long dinner with my friend Quentin Tarantino", who asked her to share the comment. Since then, Weinstein has produced all of the director's films, from 1994's "Pulp Fiction" to 2015's "Hateful Eight".
British and U.S. police have now opened investigations into the film producer, though Mr Weinstein has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.
