Jay-Z In Talks Regarding Buying Harvey Weinstein’s Weinstein Company Interest

October 11, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Jay-Z is in talks to purchase Harvey Weinstein’s interest in the film company he founded and was fired from, The Weinstein Company. TMZ reports that according to multiple sources, Jay — along with several other investors — are discussing the possibility of buying Weinstein’s 23% interest in the company. Weinstein was fired from the company in the wake of decades of sexual harassment allegations coming to light.

The rapper has worked with TWC before and has a first-look deal with the company. According to sources, Jay wants to continue and grow his relationship with the company. Picking up Harvey Weinstein’s equity now that he’s out is an opportunity to do that.
