Harvey Weinstein is finished.
Unable to combat and kill claims he raped, bullied and ruined many of Hollywood’s leading ladies, the producer now finds himself flung from favour and forced to watch stars he is said to have silenced speak up and out against him.
Now, a new report claims that Jay-Z has his sights set on replacing him.
Jay partnered with Harvey to build a number of socially conscious movie projects as part of a first-look deal with the company the producer has now been booted out of.
Multiple sources connected to Jay tell us … Jay, along with several other investors including a famous movie producer and a billionaire, are talking about purchasing Weinstein’s 23% interest in the company.
Our sources say Jay wants his relationship with the company to continue and grow, and since Harvey is out he’s looking at acquiring a substantial equity stake in the company.
If true, the purchase would see and his wife, the superstar Beyonce, expand their reach and influence within the entertainment industry following their respective wins at several labels and film studios via their work in music, film and television.
