The President of Republic Records and judge on Fox’s, The Four, has been accused of sexual misconduct. But after the initial Hollywood bombshell, folks raised the question: Who the hell is Charlie Walk?
Before we answer that question; here’s how Walk became yet another Hollywood power player abusing his power for sexual gain.
On Monday morning, former Sony employee, Tristan Cooperman, came forward and suggested Walk made her “feel sick to my stomach almost everyday.”
“For a year I shuddered at the idea of being called into your office, where you would stealthily close the door and make lewd comments about my body and share your fantasies of having sex with me. I was 27,” Cooperman wrote via her website.
“There was that event at your swank pad when you actually cornered me and pushed me into your bedroom and onto your bed,” Cooperman, who was 27 at the time explained. “The bed you shared with your wife… your wife who was in the room next door. You being drunk and me being 6 inches taller was my saving grace.”
Walk has since denied the allegations telling Entertainment Tonight that the claims are “false.” Fox, meanwhile, released a statement that read: “We have only recently learned of these past allegations regarding Mr. Walk. We are currently reviewing this matter and are committed to fostering a safe environment on all of our shows.”
Irony or not, Cooperman’s claims come during the final week of taping for the hit singing competition show. HipHollywood recently spoke with Walk during a taping of the program and he was excited to announce the winer “wins us [the panel]” and “Republic Records.”
Although now, it’s unclear how a winner might proceed following the show which also includes panelist, Diddy and DJ Khaled.
So back to the initial question: Who is Charlie Walk? Here are five things to know.
1. President of Republic Records.
2. Charlie first started in the music industry in 1990 as a marketing and promotion manager for Columbia Records. That’s where he worked with New Kids On The Block, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, Will Smith, John Legend and Mariah Carey.
3. From 2005 to 2008, Walk was the president of Epic Records.
4. In 2013, he shifted over to Republic as Vice President where he first helped launch Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” campaign. In February 2016, Walk was named president of the Republic Group.
5. Has worked with Nicki Minaj — Nicki is with signed to Cash Money, a label distributed by Republic.
‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience
Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.
For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.
“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.
And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.
