NEW YORK (AP) — 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 spokesman for Bob Weinstein says his wife was reacting to a family intervention to get her to deal with a drinking problem. He says 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 run their own film company after breaking off from Disney and Miramax, which they helped found. They have been involved highly successful films such as "Pulp Fiction," ''The English Patient," and "Shakespeare in Love."
