Published Oct 11, 2017The ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal is dominating headlines this week as the once seemingly untouchable producer has been pegged with multiple allegations of rape and sexual harassment. Understandably, Harvey has been let go from the Weinstein Company, the production house he founded with his brother Bob. Now, it looks as if JAY-Z might step in to purchase Harvey's shares.
According to TMZ, JAY-Z is talking with his team about the potential of picking up Harvey's 23 percent stake in the Weinstein Company. Other potential investors include a famous producer and a billionaire, though TMZ didn't name names.
The Weinstein Company, which is expected to rebrand immediately, already has a first-look deal in place with JAY-Z. They also produced The Kalief Browder Story alongside the performer and are working on a Trayvon Martin miniseries.
In Harvey Weinstein's initial apology for his behaviour (most of which he has since denied), he misquoted a lyric from JAY-Z's 4:44 album.
