Jay-Z And Eminem Are Both Suing The Weinstein Company
You better pay your bills, Harvey.
With all of the sexual assault issues that Harvey Weinstein has been dealing with lately, the last thing he needed was a lawsuit from two of music’s biggest titans. But like all the things Mr. Weinstein seems to do – being a good man isn’t one of them.
Eminem and Jay-Z have both filed lawsuits after their combined total owed reached $800,000 and rights on top of that which haven’t been paid by The Weinstein Company. Since the company is already facing bankruptcy, we’re wondering how much, if anything, that they’ll actually get out of the deal.
According to NME, Slim Shady is apparently owed $352,000 after ‘Southpaw’ – and they’ve only paid him $48,000 for the use of his songs in the film. Jay-Z, on the other hand, is owed $480,000, which is related to TIME: The Kalief Browder Story and Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.
You may see lawsuits, I see the indefinite end of an era.
