A prominent Japanese American entertainment mogul is entangled in a Hollywood casting couch scandal that was apparently arranged by Mariah Carey's ex-fiancé, James Packer.

The sex scandal came to light after dozens of text messages, emails and a draft of a financial settlement were leaked to The Hollywood Reporter, according to WENN.com.

THR revealed the messages appear to show the Australian-born billionaire businessman introducing British actress Charlotte Kirk to Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara.

Tsujihara, 54, is the first Asian American to run a major Hollywood studio.

In the text messages, Packer tells the Ocean's Eight actress that he has the "opportunity of a lifetime" for her. He suggested a meeting at the Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles.

Packer stressed the importance of his influential friend, promising to introduce the now 26-year-old actress to "the most important man u can meet."

While Packer, who was briefly engaged to Carey in 2016, didn't reference the man by name, subsequent texts and emails obtained by THR suggest that the man is Tsujihara.

Desperate text messages from Kirk to Tsujihara appear to suggest he promised to help further her career after they had a brief sexual interlude at a motel.

"You're very busy I know but when we were in that motel having sex u said u would help me and when u just ignore me like you're doing now it makes me feel used. Are u going to help me like u said u would?"

Tsujihara responded politely to the actress, apologizing for not returning her messages and suggesting that someone would "reach out tonight."

The powerful mogul told the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday, March 8, that, while he did have a relationship with Kirk, he only had good intentions.

“We had a brief relationship and I tried to help her career, I genuinely only ever had good intentions for Charlotte,” he confessed.

The draft of the settlement implies Kirk may have been paid hush money sometime after 2013.

The studio has since reported that they are investigating the allegations.

Tsujihara is married to Sandy Tsujihara. They have two children together.

    Waiting for her to jump on the Me Too bandwagon. ?

  • WinterIsComing

    I know this is an unpopular opinion but FAWK #metoo. These white women thought they could sleep their way to the top. They didn’t blow the whistle until they got what they wanted. They willingly sacraficed their integrity. I don’t see victims, only volunteers.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I wouldn't consider this sexual harassment or whatever. This looks more like two people trading sex for "career assistance". Sleazy stuff, for sure,
    but I dont know if I'd consider her a victim like she might want to portray herself.

  • jazmine

    And this is exactly why she deserved that money for him wasting her time.

  • Trace da Ace

    Oh well....she thought her cooch would get her a Hollywood star....hope she learned her lesson....Mr Chow only wanted to see if the drapes matched the rug and what that mouth do....then he was done with her.

  • ATL White Guy

    Maybe it wasn't that good and she wasted his time?

  • jazmine

    A judge thought it was good enough

  • WinterIsComing

    ??????

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Another business deal gone bad but the man will be called a rapist

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm sure some women have gotten movie roles after giving sexual favors. Some have probably become famous stars, and since things worked out for them, they keep their mouth shut. The only ones we seem to hear from are those who do favors and don't get the result they want.

  • WinterIsComing

    Bad pucci and terrible head. Step ya game up ladies.

  • Junkanoo

    Hollywood is a huge glass house this kind of thing is apart of the Hollywood culture and has been for a long while now . Jennifer Lopez would not be where she is today if not for sleeping her way to the top a lot of A- list celebs have me wondering if they made it to the top based on talent or hookups parts .

  • Renee26

    She went to sell puzzy for a role and didn't get the contract signed first that's poor puzzy management on her part. He didn't have to pay her hush money... Fugg her

  • Renee26

    Men lie to get sex all the time...she was the fool

  • ATL White Guy

    So a). you are to meet at a hotel; b) you don't know his name but he's "the most important man u can meet." and then c). your text is "..when we were in that motel having sex u said u would help me..." doesn't sound like very smart decisions were made here by Ms. Charlotte. If this counts as a #metoo moment it greatly waters down the REAL me to moments that have happened.

  • Renee26

    Doesn't seem to apply in this case

  • Wreckognize Game

    Imagine if he had told her this?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Not in Aziz Ansari’s case either. But they try to use me2

  • Mielle Downey

    Metoo clout chasing hoes are trying to pull the wool over people's eyes and harm the credibility of real victims. Hollywood is a cesspool. Effing for clout all of them. NO SYMPATHY AT ALL AND MISS ME WITH THE FAKE VICTIM ACT.

  • Renee26

    Nowhere in the write up was me too or a claim of harassment mentioned

  • Mielle Downey

    Wait for it.

  • Wreckognize Game

    So James isn’t in trouble he was only mentioned because of the introduction?

  • Pamela

    You tell mo lies. Looking at you Gwyneth Paltrow.

  • Blak

    this is why I will never buy into metoo. She clearly consented to having sex and only felt used when she immediately didn't get what she wanted. She was paid off and is now a movie star which is why she kept her mouth shut

  • WinterIsComing

    That’s fine. What do you think the settlement was based on? It sure wasn’t based in friendship.

  • NewNew

    I think they got shot down pretty quickly in the Ansari case. That just sounded like a bad date and the court of public opinion came to his defense.

  • Renee26

    She failed tho

  • Renee26

    Exactly

  • Renee26

    Only the commenters are pushing it as part of this story.... As if real instances of harassment and inappropriate ish doesn't happen to people who aren't looking for it

  • WinterIsComing

    She would’ve went to the police and cried rape after she picked her face up off the floor.

  • WinterIsComing

    Settlement means out of court in most cases

  • Renee26

    Idk maybe he didn't want his wife to know he cheated... I'm sure she already knows so he didn't have to pay her nothin... If she tried to take him to court that text message would dismiss her claims.

  • bella28498 .

    It was obvious since the onset of the me too movement it was full of females that were having sex to further their acting careers.

  • Renee26

    He know allll the hoes that'll bust it open for some change

  • WinterIsComing

    Of course these wives know. It’s a price they’re willing to pay for a certain lifestyle.

  • Phillybruh

    What's the scandal she sexed him for help.

  • KcoolMuziq

    MORE will be revealed & exposed about various entertainers,executives,"directors" etc by the years end.

  • Phillybruh

    Good maybe some more Oprah and Gail interviews

  • BingBangBoom

    #METOO #METOO

  • LeeSeeCee

    This has nothing to do with the MeToo movement. The actress has already publicly stated that she was NEVER harassed, assaulted and that their encounters were completely consensual. People conflating this particular HWood hoeing (aka casting couch) story vs an actual sexual harassment/assault. The only scandal here is if he used WB $$ to pay her or his own personal funds and even that who cares? No one knows this chick.. IJS.. Her pu$$y management failed to secure a bag or meaningful roles.

  • ATL White Guy

    He probably chalked it up to the game while he put it on his expense reimbursement request.

    Mariah's merry-go-round fling with Packer goes a little something like this. Give me a beat (in my Janet voice)

    Mariah used the hell out of ole dude and tried to spend every Australian and U.S. dime he had. Then she told her EX Nick that the "D" was not as good as his, darling. Then Nick blabbed it during an interview. Well, he laughed first. Then Mariah and Packer were on vacay and she was walking in 19 inch heels and her big ass fell down. That shyt was funny (but I digressed). Ole dude just sat there and watched her fall in slow motion and did not do the gentlemanly thing by helping her up. Instead, he sat there, rolled his eyes and said this hoe drunk again. Then he rolled his eyes again and started filing his fingernails with his eyes. Then Mariah had to help herself up off da floor, I mean ground. Then she said you wasted my time I want $50 million. Then he said give me back my damned ring that I paid $10 million stacks for. Then Mariah took it to da jeweler and he appraised it for $2 million dollars. Then Mariah's crazy ass used the engagement ring as a publicity stunt prop until the diamonds fell out. Then Packer paid her a $49.50 settlement. The settlement also included a case of NV Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne (that's that expensive bubbly) just to get rid of her looney ass and that's what had happened your honor..

  • Phillybruh

    Ahhhhhh Kevin Spacey and Bryan Singer would disagree with you.

  • WhoKnew

    In other news, this story makes it hard for real #metoo# victims to have their "credible" voices heard. This looks like she was trying to set him up and she knew it wasn't a pay for play in the sense that he would "actually" help her career.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    When it’s all said and done there won’t be a man standing. Some of you saints won’t even have yours. Loving it!

  • Angelique Johnson

    Why is she mad? She opened up her legs to a man that lied to her and played her. But she gave it up on her own to get that push in Hollywood.
    This happens all over the world with someone lying about what they will do and do the opposite. It was her choice to give extra to help get to fame. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6cdc8d997d41655714e11379a5f6574af68025b3bf510225843e6536abc519e3.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d525a48681ba1ba339a1717189405f4a8574051ba3a8f8bc7d3733040d667800.gif

Not Mimi fault that woman tried to fukk for a role and still aint get it. She needs to get her puscee skills up or be fab like Mariah who aint gotta fukk nobody for nothing but fun IF and WHEN she choose to.

    Dont at me about Mariah. NOPE.

  • U gon learn today

    This isn’t why. Your own ignorance is why you have no ability to draw separation between the issue of rape and some silly blog story about a chick meeting meeting a man in a Hollywood hotel to further her career. I guess if she were going to cry rape, she would be dumb enough to send him a text admitting she willingly had sex him right? What TF does this story have to do with MeToo?

    Stop trying to muddy the waters of the actual issues of rape and abuse with this notion that most accusations are false when that is the case LESS THAN 1% OF THE TIME. Tarana Burke started the #MeToo movement because she was raped and sexually assaulted as a child. 80% of women are in fact sexually harassed in the workplace. Powerful men do in fact use their position to coerce or force themselves on women. 1 in 5 women will be raped at some point in their lives. 1 in 3 girls will molested before the age of 18. These issues are real!

    And if you don’t actually believe MeToo victims, then don’t run your ignorant self to every post about R Kelly with this whataboutism whining deflecting to Harvey Weinstein when you should be defending him.

    Oh course not, she still hasn't had sex. It is Mariah that we're talking about.

    I didn't trash Oprah nor Gayle I simply want too see more interviews.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And that will prove what exactly?

    Neither Gayle nor Oprah can force anyone on your list to give an interview so your statement makes zero sense.

    No one forced R Kelly to give the interview. He agreed and it's his fault that he lost his $hit.

    Ms. Kirk’s career has taken off since 2013, plenty of movies. So, it seems as though he did make good on his promise. I’m assuming the person who leaked the information isn’t her but someone who knows how she made it to the top and wanted to expose her.
    The “settlement” was a shakedown on her behalf. Women placed in her situation have a choice and make it. She was not yet employed by him so had no perceived obligation to oblige him. She slept with him with the intentions to propel her career. She was offered a chance to “cheat” and she took it

  • Angelique Johnson

    I believed in a lie when from my ex husband and said yes ,so is that rape?

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Is your husband black? Then it depends on how bad they want his black azz locked up. Go to your local DA office and ask them I am certain there is a Tom enough negro or racist that will oblige. #FACTS!

  • the guest

    It's sad how society justifies abuse.

    When powerful people extort sex in exchange to employ it's a form of rape in my opinion. The point of #metoo should be to restructure and reprogram Hollywood to where there is a transparent and accountable system of audition and employment based solely on merit.

    This first Asian American CEO of a major Hollywood Studio and Mariah's ex fiance Packer are two pigs and they should be charged with trafficking because there is a paper trail showing that the actress was pimped in exchange for and as the requirement for employment in her field.

    I'm certain if a legitimate audition was the requirement, then she would have auditioned and not have additionally volunteered to sleep with that trafficker. Those moguls are holding jobs hostage and releasing them in exchange for sex. Hollywood needs a cleansing, exorcism, healing and an overhaul.

    Why are everyday otherwise normal and moral people not involved with depraved activities using street and prostitution language as if its normal and acceptable when it is not.

  • TheOwley

    The casting couch is alive and well in Hollywood and the basis for the #metoo movement. They are all dirty.

  • Gina W.

    And to think she was going to marry Packer for his money. SMH...She would've been more miserable than she already is.

    And why are actresses STILL meeting these men at hotels for meetings? Don't yell rape. The word is out with Weinstein.
