The New York Times may have been responsible for exposing and taking down Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company, but they still want $229,567.68 for advertisements they claim the company left unpaid.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, The NY Times claims they rendered advertising services to The Weinstein Company for an agreed upon amount of $229,567.68.
The NY Times says they have asked for the payment, but TWC has not paid up what they owe.
We’re told the advertising was placed in the fall of 2017 for various movie related promotions by TWC and their advertising agents.
Our sources involved in the case tell us they do not believe the failure to pay by TWC is a reaction to the NY Times breaking the story alleging Weinstein’s sexual misconduct, which led to Hollywood being turned upside down.
We’re told the reason for not paying the bills may have to do with TWC’s financial turmoil and possible bankruptcy.
