They've been close friends for 25 years - Weinstein even hosted an engagement party/Pulp Fiction-reunion for Tarantino and his girlfriend Daniella Pick. And Tarantino has been working on a movie about the Manson Family murders, which the Weinstein Company was set to produce.
Miramax's successor, The Weinstein Company, produced Tarantino's Oscar-winning Inglorious Basterds, as well as Django Unchained, and co-distributed the Oscar-nominated Western The Hateful Eight.
In the next few days, we should expect to hear more from Tarantino on the Weinstein allegations. "I need a few more days to process my pain, emotions, anger and memory and then I will speak publicly about it", he said.
Emma Thompson also commented on the Weinstein scandal Thursday, telling BBC Newsnight that Weinstein "is at the top of a very particular iceberg", saying you "can't describe him as a sex addict".
