UPDATES with comment from New York Times: One of Harvey Weinstein ’s attorneys says the media mogul is going to sue The New York Times over its report today of alleged sexual harassment claims against The Weinstein Company co-chairman. In a statement, attorney Charles Harder said that the Times story “is saturated with false and defamatory statements about Harvey Weinstein.” “It relies on mostly hearsay accounts and a faulty report, apparently stolen from an employee personnel file, which has been debunked by 9 different eyewitnesses,” the Harder Mirell & Abrams lawyer added. “We sent the Times the facts and evidence, but they ignored it and rushed to publish. We are preparing the lawsuit now. All proceeds will be donated to women’s organizations.” Nothing has been filed. But a New York Times spokesperson responded to Deadline’s request for comment. “We are confident in the accuracy of our reporting,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “Mr. Weinstein was … [Read more...] about Harvey Weinstein To Sue New York Times Over Sexual Harassment Claims In Article
Harvey and Bob Weinstein have signed deals to re-up at the Weinstein Co. for another three years, despite lying about this to Deadline for the past several days. This was hardly a state secret; Bob Weinstein told Deadline that he and his brother were nearing re-up deals when they got COO David Glasser to change his mind about leaving, after he’d tendered his resignation to the board. By signing new contracts, the Weinsteins can put an end to that speculation and make clear their commitment to the company they launched a decade ago. Now, the big question is whether this means the board will free up the necessary infusion of money to spend on film and TV slates to move forward, and if this halts the exodus of staff and rumors of cash woes that has dogged the company in recent months. It might also revive discussions to sell off a TV production division that has hits and no debt, after a big sale to ITV fell apart. The prospect of that still seems viable at either ITV or Fremantle (or … [Read more...] about Harvey And Bob Weinstein Re-Up At The Weinstein Co. For Three More Years

French Montana is one of rap’s great connectors. He’s known for crafting exuberant projects showcasing his irrepressible personality alongside a bunch of unlikely guest features. On his introductory 2007 mixtape, The French Revolution Vol. 1, he even has a song whose guest feature is credited to Martin Luther King, Jr. If he does nothing else, French Montana brings people together, even if that social butterfly aspect of his persona sometimes hampers the potency of his major-label releases. His 2013 debut Excuse My French felt fun and wavy in all the right ways. But it was also a bit generic: the singles could have been concocted in a boardroom where the main goal was to check off focus-group boxes just to conjure up a chart-topper. Its motley assembly of muscular club bangers and cameo-laden anthems lacked the grimy amiability so prevalent in the songs from his early mixtape run. And while his last album, They Got Amnesia , was a crowd-pleaser packed with … [Read more...] about French Montana Ditches the Flashy Features and Sounds More Focused Than Ever on ‘Montega’

Standing under a canopy of trees at the center of Uvalde ’s town square, more than 40 mariachi musicians lifted their instruments and sang in unison one afternoon in June, their voices brawny and unwavering. The music, a swell of trumpets, violins, and guitar-like vihuelas, soared across the lush fountain park that, in the weeks after the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School , has become a memorial and gathering place for a community in mourning. Crowds of journalists and grieving loved ones huddled around as the mariachis serenaded them with classics such as Juan Gabriel’s “Amor Eterno” and Cornelio Reyna’s “Te Vas Angel Mio ,” the songs echoing down several blocks. The musicians performed while facing 21 white crosses that stand in the park to honor the 19 children and two teachers killed during the attack, playing loudest for them. Most of the musicians had arrived on a bus from San Antonio, about 85 miles to the west of Uvalde, though some drove themselves in a … [Read more...] about Mexican Classics, Corridos, and a Plaza Filled With Mariachi: The Sounds of Solidarity in Uvalde
A federal grand jury in the Southern District of New York has subpoenaed board members of the company looking to merge with former President Donald Trump’s social-media company Truth Social . Blank-check firm Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC) revealed on Monday that all seven of its board members have been asked for documents related to a Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry filed against the firm last year . The planned SPAC merger , now being threatened by multiple federal investigations, would allow the company to access billions of dollars in public markets. The federal grand jury is also seeking information related to Rocket One Capital, a Miami based venture capital firm. The document released by the SEC revealed that Rocket One’s Chief Strategy Officer Bruce Garelick had resigned from the board of DWAC. In November of last year Sen. Elizabeth Warren called on the SEC to investigate possible securities violations by Truth Social and … [Read more...] about Federal Grand Jury Rains Subpoenas on Trump’s Truth Social Merger
It could be a battle of the brothers in the courts very soon as deposed and much-accused Harvey Weinstein has retained attorney Patricia Glaser to represent him in a possible looming action against Bob Weinstein and the Weinstein Company. As more revelations of sexual harassment and even accusations of rape are coming out against Weinstein, Deadline has learned that the Hollywood heavyweight could be taking a legal shiv to the younger brother and TWC for terminating the 65-year old’s employment with the company on October 8. With internal divisions perhaps at play, any forthcoming suit could center on Weinstein’s most recent employment contract, which he inked just a couple of years ago. Additionally, Weinstein still owns 23% of TWC with Bob Weinstein owning the same and the seemingly ever-shrinking board holding the remainder. Whatever the battlefield, no doubt no one will emerge unscathed in the matter if an action is instigated but remember the Glaser … [Read more...] about Harvey Weinstein Hires Patty Glaser For Potential Legal Battle With TWC
