New York - The wife of film producer Bob Weinstein has filed for divorce in New York and is seeking an order of protection.

Court papers say Anne Weinstein is seeking the protection order because she fears "bodily harm".

A spokesperson for Bob Weinstein said his wife was reacting to a family intervention to get her to deal with a drinking problem. He said there is no abuse.

The two married in 2000. Anne Weinstein is a former book editor. They have two children.

Bob Weinstein and his brother Harvey are New York natives and Hollywood mainstays who have run their own film company since breaking off from Disney and Miramax, which they helped found.

They have been involved in highly successful movies such as Pulp Fiction and The English Patient.
