Prominent Hollywood mogul Kevin Tsujihara - the most powerful Asian man in Hollywood - will soon be out of a job. The CEO and chairman of Warner Bros. Entertainment is entangled in a Hollywood casting couch scandal that was apparently arranged by Mariah Carey's ex-fiancé, James Packer.

"I think he's toast," says one lawyer as Warner Bros. legal team conducts a third investigation into the details of Tsujihara's relationship with British actress Charlotte Kirk.

Complicating the issue is the fact that Warner Bros. investigated the issue twice and resolved the CEO of any wrongdoing. But that all changed when emails, text messages and a draft of a financial settlement were leaked to The Hollywood Reporter.

For the third time in a 16-month span, Tsujihara is the subject of an internal investigation about his relationship with Kirk. Parent company WarnerMedia is being asked how they absolved Tsujihara of misconduct in the first two investigations.

"That may be because the scope of their investigation was narrow," says Ann Fromholz, an attorney who specializes in workplace harassment. In other words, the investigators limited powers to investigate the chairman in the previous 2 probes of him. "Or it may be because people didn't give information to them and they had no other way to get it."

A WarnerMedia representative says the prior investigations it conducted did not find any wrongdoing in Kirk's casting in two Warner Bros. films: the 2016 comedy How to Be Single and the 2018 Sandra Bullock-led caper Ocean's 8.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter's knowledgeable source, the company is treating text messages between Tsujihara, 54, and Kirk, 26, first reported by THR in a March 6 exposé, as "new information."

According to two THR sources, "it is not a violation of company policy for a rank-and-file Warner Bros. staffer to have an undisclosed consensual relationship with someone who is not in his or her direct line of report."

But an executive of Tsujihara's status is believed to have more restrictive language regarding code of conduct in his contract.

Even if he didn't violate any specific policy, if Tsujihara lied during the previous investigations, that would be a fireable offense, say lawyers (employees are typically required to sign statements they make during a formal inquiry).

Tsujihara is married with two children.

    He'll get fired, but probably has enough money where he's still going to be financially set for life. The worst part for him will be just the embarrassment. With these guys, it just never seems like the punishment ever really fits the crime for all the dirt they do.

    The fact that the owner of Warner's daughters were part of a Global sex cult and no one is even the wiser is confusing? I guess they are working their way thought the black community to distract the sheep. Black people are always the sacrificial lamb when ish hits the fan.

    First of all Nancy Piglosi just admitted they are NOT going to try to impeach The Donald. She claims it wouldn't be worth it when in truth they CAN'T because they have NOTHING on The Donald and second of all because he has the goods on their azzes. Mueller your savior who you and others thought was going to bring The Donald down fell for the whole Russian collusion hoax bullshishj and guess what? THEY FOUND NOTHING. NOTHING, NOTHING just like me and others have been saying all along. Now, come to find out "Former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Justice Department ordered the FBI not to charge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” by mishandling classified information."

    Now check this out: They just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Odumba Justice Department look exactly like it was, a criminal and corrupt administration. Oh yeah, there's more to come. That queen Odumba and his administration and all the other clowns of the Deep State, Demoncrats, Republicons, and other demented liberals are going down that's why they are so, so, so, desperate to get The Donald out of office. The Donald "is" Draining The Swamp. Get ready because it's going to be a hell of a ride.

    This is pathetic. I had no idea who this man is, yet Crazy Rich Asians was such a big deal for the Asian community. This shows that even when "one of your own" makes it, they forget about where they came from. Why was Crazy Rich Asians such a big deal and not more common, with him in charge?

    AND this was forecast YEARS ago. If you are aware as I am, you knew this was coming, but couldn't possibly imagine how it would play out. Uranus is a trickster. You see gov't, the Catholic Church, large corporations, all that. The meek shall inherit the earth shift is occurring now and it is a doozey. It's JUST getting started. If you have hidden sh*t be prepared for it to be exposed, esp where abuse of power and position is concerned. I like you! :)

    Panda Express is Chinese food. He's Japanese, totally different and rude. I get it's a joke but it's offensive. We need to come away from racially motivated jokes. Just say his wife's gonna beat that as$ period. Same effect

  • chaisun

    They’re never going to make white men the face of all their deviant demonic behavior. They’ll normalize it but only in ther community, they’ve done it for hundreds of years. This is what happens when other people feel like they can do the same thing white men do. White men will always have white women and the rest of the white demonic world to hold them down. Japanese man here, next we’ll get a brown man in there but Black men will become historically known as preditors.

  • Bashi22

    I am just sit and watch unravel ...R Kelly is the start of it.

  • LogicAndReason

    So what about all the white men who are being fired or even charged? Weinstein is facing life in prison, Spacey is going to trial, etc.. It's pointless to complain about someone who is doing wrong being punished because of the perception(right or wrong)that other people are getting away with it.

    If 85 black dudes kill other black dudes over gang stuff and get away with it....Would that make it ok for these cops to keep getting away with killing unarmed black men? Of course not! On the other hand if 85 cops get away with killing black men I'm still not ok with the gang dudes being free to kill more brothers either.

    True so they need to stop being foot stools and make better decisions.

  • the guest

    Tsujihara is a married man with children. He should be a smarter minority business mogul and not bite bait from white men to corrupt and destroy him. When Packer called him with this evil nonsense, he should have put his family and his bag first, and when he got that call he should have told Packer to fk off.

    His Japanese ancestors did not survive concentration camps in this country for him to become the only one heading a major Hollywood studio then risk it all to engage in trafficking women.

    Wanna bet Packer's friends with the next white head of Warner Brothers? Wanna bet Kirk was a plant whether she knew it or not? When will black men and men of color ever learn that lust baiting is the oldest racist tactic in the book to bring them down.

    Weinstein's evil and unaccountability in no example or bar for any man to live by or up to. No one should be taking liberties to abuse people. Point. Blank. Period.

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!

  • the guest

    THIS!!!!

  • the guest

    Because that was the plan. To bait him to corrupt and destroy him and took the oldest bait in the book used to take down black men and men of color. Looks like Packer wasn't his real friend after all.

  • the guest

    Spacey is going to jail. He was outright molesting men in public and the men are willing to testify. You got be a total sicko to be sitting at a bar in a restaurant and when the bartender walked by him he just outright grabbed his private and that bartender didn't care who he was and told on him. And lucky for that bartender his bosses didn't let Spacey get away with it because he's famous.

  • LogicAndReason

    So many people are afraid to speak out against powerful people. That's why it usually starts with one and then all of a sudden the stories start flooding in....Some may be jumping on a bandwagon but many think they won't be believed and their lives will be destroyed-and sometimes they are right.
