Harvey Weinstein, an infamous Hollywood producer, is facing multiple sexual harassment and rape allegations by women in the Hollywood industry. Weinstein has produced several notable films including “Good Will Hunting,” “Scream,” “Gangs of New York,” “Shakespeare in Love,” and many others. He is also the co-founder of a successful production company, Miramax.
Since actress Ashley Judd first came forward about her unsettling experience with Weinstein, several other well-known names have given a similar testimony. Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow were among those who claimed that Weinstein also sexually harassed them.
Following this massive sex scandal, Weinstein has had a fairly quick fallout. He was almost immediately fired from his position, multiple organizations have denied his monetary donations, and his model wife finally announced that she was leaving him.
In newly released information from TMZ, the celebrity news site revealed that hip-hop artist and husband to award-winning singer Beyonce, Jay-Z, may be interested in purchasing Weinstein’s part of his company, “The Weinstein Company.” The rapper already has a professional relationship with TWC, but sources confirm that he wants it to grow even further.
Other investors, who were unnamed, are also interested in buying Weinstein’s 23% interest in TWC.
Jay-Z has been making other major headlines this year for his controversial political stances. Recently, he called President Donald Trump “unsophisticated’ and implied that Trump does not deserve his respect.
The music artist also came to former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s support in the midst of the national anthem protesting controversy. In a recent performance, Jay Z sported a Kaepernick jersey on the stage of “Saturday Night Live.”
