    There's also this from the New York Post, an older article from back last Oct, but has some details in it the other ones don't:

    . . .
    Is Tommy Davis still at Colony Capital [?] . . . which is
    buying the distressed assets of the Weinstein Company
    at a Hollywood fire sale?

    Colony Capital possible new owner

    I'm mistaken . . . Tommy started his own "PR & crisis management"
    firm in June. Will be a lot of new business to pick up soon the way
    things are going.

    So smug Tommy Davis on Linkedin

    Not that I care. Slow news day. :sleepy:

    "Packer did indeed bail from RatPac, and we were told that in that chaos, Tommy left his job working for Packer. And now, it’s been reported at Bloomberg that Tommy is back working for Barrack (Colony Capital/Financial), this time as an independent contractor."

    from Bloomberg:

    “I err on the side of loyalty over top performance for sure,” Barrack said. “I’ve hired people from a reservoir of unusual places versus going to Wall Street and saying, ‘I’m going to go steal someone from Goldman Sachs.’”

    That’s led to unorthodox hires such as Tommy Davis, a former spokesman and head of external relations for the Church of Scientology. Davis joined Colony in 2012 as a part of the rental-home business before eventually becoming Barrack’s chief of staff, coordinating media-related requests and bookings.

    Barrack is the godfather of Davis’s brother, Davis said in a telephone interview. He is no longer employed by the firm but works for Barrack personally as an independent contractor.

    from the Los Angeles Times:

    The deal with Barrack, a close ally of President Trump, is a sign of how dire the situation is for Weinstein Co., outside bankers told The Times. The studio was already struggling because of the poor performance of its films, and the mounting allegations against its former co-chairman have further threatened its survival. The company has swiftly lost board members and valuable TV deals in the wake of the scandal.

    “There's a desperation that is dense in the air coming from the Weinstein Co.'s headquarters,” said Eric Schiffer, chief executive of the Patriarch Organization, a private equity firm. “It’s like being on the Hindenburg when everyone’s jumping off.”

    :eek: OMG...DM lost another whale. :sing: :yay: :woohoo:

    Doesn't look like Scientology helped Packer much, if it all, or maybe they just made life worse for him. I wish he'd come out publicly and talk about it, instead of keeping quiet about it.
