Jay Z is giving serious consideration to buying disgraced showbiz mogul Harvey Weinstein’s interest in The Weinstein Company. According to TMZ, Jay, along with several other investors including a famous movie producer and a billionaire, are talking about purchasing Weinstein’s 23% interest in the company.
Jay already has worked with TWC and Weinstein, producing the docu-series The Kalief Browder Story. He has also a Trayvon Martin miniseries slated for production. Jay has a first-look film deal with the company.
Jay wants his relationship with the company to continue and grow, and since Harvey is out he’s looking at acquiring a substantial equity stake in the company.
