Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara is leaving amid claims. He tried to get roles for an actress who allegedly had a relationship with him.
John Stankey, CEO of WarnerMedia’s parent, said it was “in the best interest” of the company that Tsujihara is heading for. “Kevin admits his mistakes are contrary to the company’s leadership expectations,” Warner said.
The firm is investigating the allegations. Earlier this month, the Hollywood reporter allegedly an actress called Mr. Tsujihara’s help sought after having sex. The report contains text messages between Mr. Tsujihara and the actress.
Tsujihara’s lawyer said at that time that the executive did not have a direct role in the hiring of the actress in any movie. In a letter to staff on Monday, reported by Reuters, Tsujihara did not address the matter.
“It has become clear that my continued leadership can be a distraction and stumbling block to the company’s continued success. The hard work of everyone in our organization is truly admirable and I will not detract from the media’s past media attention do not do all the great things, work the team does “he wrote.
