Jay-Z Reportedly Looking To Buy Interest In The Weinstein Company
Jay wants to buy Harvey Weinstein’s interest.
Jay-Z looks to be seizing the opportunity in the new Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal. The music mogul is reportedly looking to purchase the portion of Weinstein’s interest in The Weinstein Company.
Harvey’s 23% stake in the company is being inquired by Jay and other private investors. Harvey was forced to resign last week after he was exposed by multiple sources confirming past incidents involving sexually suggestive situations with female counterparts like assistants, secretaries, and actresses including Rose McGowan, Cara Delevinge, Angelina Jolie, and many more.
Hov currently has a healthy working relationship with The Weinstein Company. He signed a first look deal with Weinstein last year and is currently producing a miniseries on slain teen Trayvon Martin.
Jay wants his relationship with the company to continue to grow, and since Harvey is out, he’s looking at acquiring a substantial equity stake in the company. Harvey and Jay also worked closely together while producing the film, “The Kalief Browder Story.”
