Rapist Harvey Weinstein watches TV with his head in his hands in hospital prison

The first photos purported to be disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein inside Bellevue Hospital have emerged, showing the producer sitting with his head in his hands while watching TV. 

The photographs, obtained by Pix11 and shared with DailyMail.com, show the 67-year-old fallen giant for the first time since his rape conviction last week. 

Weinstein was seen sitting alone hunched on a leather chair with his wheelchair visible next to him on Friday morning. 

He was wearing a simple white T-shirt with what appears to be a hospital bracelet or cast on his wrist rubbing his head as he looked downcast.

The film titan was convicted last week of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree and rape in the third degree in the assaults of Miriam Haley and Jessica Mann and was ordered to be held in jail. 

Instead of going to the notorious Rikers Island prison, Weinstein was taken from the Manhattan courthouse to NYC Health and Hospitals/Bellevue on February 24 for heart palpitations and high blood pressure, where he's remained since, according to his attorneys. 

At Bellevue Weinstein is reportedly allowed to roam around at his own free will. 

'He is free to roam and is not handcuffed. He is being treated like any other person,' a source said.  

'He is waking with the aide of a wheelchair. He is holding on to its handles to go to the TV room, using it as a walker, where he spent about an hour this morning and then walked himself back,' the source added. 

The source says that it's very clear 'Harvey does not want to go to Rikers.'

Weinstein is reportedly given around the clock protection by Department of Correction ESU (Emergency Service Unit) officers.

However, it's not clear exactly what condition Weinstein has nor when he will be moved to Rikers.  

Weinstein's lawyer Arthur Aidala visited the movie mogul in the hospital on Friday. A spokesman for the convicted rapist said he is 'mentally down'. 

Aidala was spotted buying snacks for his client on the same day that doctors ordered a CAT scan for Weinstein.
