Jay has had an ongoing working relationship with Harvey and The Weinstein Company.
AI International Holdings gave The Weinstein Company a $45 million dollar loan a year ago, and now they want it back, TMZ reported.
TMZ reported Wednesday Jay has been consulting with his team of investors, including a movie producer and billionaire, to consider buying Weinstein's 23% stake in the company.
Syrian FM says U.S. coalition sparing IS in Syria
In late September, the coalition acknowledged the deaths of 735 civilians in its strikes on Syria and Iraq since 2014, but the Britain-based Observatory says hundreds have been killed in Raqqa alone since June.
The company's film section has helped finance movies such as "Hacksaw Ridge" and "The Butler", and are said to have backed forthcoming film "I, Tonya", which will star Margot Robbie as figure skater Tonya Harding. Weinstein is now in settlement talks with the studio and has said he's open to an outside relationship after he returns from sex rehab in Europe. Now that Harvey is out, one major film backer wants out too. "Without him, it's nothing".
Weinstein had left the home by the time they arrived and his daughter reportedly told police no suicidal statement were made and said it had been just a family argument. On Tuesday, his current wife, Georgina Chapman, announced that she would be divorcing Weinstein following days of reports of sexual harassment and assault allegations against the former Hollywood mogul.
Harvey has denied claims published by the New York Times newspaper earlier this month that he had harassed at least eight female employees over nearly 30 year, and has vowed to take legal action.
