Harvey Weinstein already has the mounting sexual assault allegations to contend with and now, his former business, The Weinstein Company, is the target of legal action from Jay-Z and Eminem. The Hip-Hop stars claim TWC owes them royalties and payments for services rendered to the production company.
The Blast exclusively reports:
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jay-Z claims TWC owes him over $480,000 in unpaid fees for the Kalief Browder and Trayvon Martin films they worked on together.
In their bankruptcy docs, TWC claimed they didn’t owe Jay-Z anything on the Browder project and didn’t even make mention of the Martin one. But Jay says his company is owed at least $240k for the Kalief project and an additional $240k for the Trayvon film.
He says the amount could be more because TWC hasn’t been forthcoming with its accounting.
The outlet adds that Eminem is seeking $352,000 for producing and submitting a song to the soundtrack for 2015’s Southpaw film, with his side entering into demand requests back in October of last year.
