Report: Eminem and JAY-Z are suing the Weinstein Company for $800,000

  /  05.06.2018

The Weinstein Company has seen better days. From receiving backlash after multiple sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein to the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and Jake Gyllenhaal all claiming they are owed outstanding royalties, the company has some explaining—and paying up—to do.

On top of that, it appears that Eminem and JAY-Z are both seeking legal action against the company.

According to reports, the artists have initiated a lawsuit seeking $800,000. Per the suit, TWC owes JAY-Z $240,000 for his contributions to TIME: The Kalief Browder Story and Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. Additionally, Eminem is claiming that he hasn’t yet received the $352,000 he is owed for the Southpaw soundtrack.

At the time of this report, it remains to be seen how legal proceedings will move forward. As previously reported, when the company filed for bankruptcy this March, it did not list owed wages to either JAY-Z or Eminem.

Meanwhile, JAY-Z is dealing with some legal issues of his own. As reported, he has been ordered by the court to explain why he feels he shouldn’t have to testify in an ongoing investigation into Iconix Brand Group. The company previously paid him $204 million to acquire intangible assets related to the Rocawear apparel brand.
