Lawyer for James Packer and other Hollywood film bosses say they are « the victims of a multimillion dollar civil extortion plot » by British actress Charlotte Kirk and others

Attorney Martin Singer released a statement on behalf of Packer, Millennium Films CEO Avi Lerner and US producer Brett Ratner on Friday, who said: « After years of constantly evolving and totally false allegations in an increasingly extravagant money hunt, last spring they threatened to smear my clients and they collectively demanded $ 335 million [US] narcotics « 

Kirk filed a motion in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month to lift a gag order that kept her from speaking out amid the legal saga, The Hollywood Reporter noted Thursday.

The post reported last year that leaked texts revealed Kirk’s frustration that her ex-boyfriend, Mr. Packer, and its business partner, M Ratner, failed to keep their alleged promises to land his Hollywood movie roles, despite Mr. Packer set up a late night reunion between her and Warner Bros. boss Kevin Tsujihara

According to the texts, M Packer, who at the time was a partner of M Ratner in RatPac Entertainment, was preparing the young actress for her big break

M Packer did not identify the man by name, but hundreds of texts, emails and a draft legal settlement agreement obtained and reviewed by THR in 2019, suggest the meeting was with Mr. Tsujihara

« The subsequent encounters between Kirk and Tsujihara resulted in the powerful studio head in what Kirk has repeatedly referred to as sex, » THR reported

M Tsujihara quit Warner Bros. last year following a company investigation into his relationship with Kirk

Nothing indicates any irregularity on M’s part Packer, who told the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in 2019 that he « never had good intentions » for his ex-girlfriend

In his statement, M Singer noted that an arbitrator had granted a preliminary injunction against Kirk, her former boyfriend Joshua Newton and her recent partner Neil Marshall

« As a result, they were expressly prohibited from taking legal action against my clients in violation of the agreements they have made, » the statement from M Singer « They have now, of course, ignored this order and not only filed this complaint, but also disclosed it [to the media]
