Lindt sues Weinstein Company over $133G in unpaid sponsor fees

The Weinstein Company owes a Swiss chocolatier $ 133,333 over event sponsorship fees, a new lawsuit alleges.

The Weinstein Company and Lindt & Sprungli inked a sponsorship agreement in November 2015, according to court papers.

Under the deal, Lindt would pay $ 400,000 to sponsor the Weinstein Company’s Golden Globe Awards Show events in 2016, 2017 and 2018 – which works out to about $ 133,333 per event.

The Weinstein Company’s 2018 event was canceled in the wake of allegations that company co-founder Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and assaulted numerous women.
