Harvey Weinstein arrived to a court hearing in Manhattan using a walker on Wednesday, an apparent sign of the disgraced movie producer's deteriorating health.

Weinstein, whose sexual assault trial is set to start next month, is scheduled to undergo back surgery on Thursday to relieve back pain, his attorney Donna Rotunno said in court. After the court hearing, she said the legal team insisted he use a walker.

"We wanted him to use a walker last week and Mr. Weinstein didn't want the press to think he was seeking sympathy. He is in pain, he's having surgery, and we will be back in court on January 6 for trial," she said.
