“Over the past week and a half, I have been reflecting on how the attention on my past actions might impact the company’s future. After lengthy introspection, and discussions with John Stankey over the past week, we have decided that it is in Warner Bros.’ best interest that I step down as chairman and C.E.O,” Tsujihara, 54 and married, and with the company for two decades, wrote in a memo to the employees.

Hollywood Reporter had put out a report quoting messages a fortnight ago that British actress Charlotte Kirk, in her 20s, had a meeting with Kevin in a hotel where he promised to help her and subsequently tried to influence key people in the company to get her some roles.
