Woody Allen’s manager accused of embezzling commissions

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Woody Allen's manager has been accused of secretly pocketing commissions from the veteran actor-director's films.

A lawsuit was filed on March 30 against Stephen Tenenbaum in Los Angeles Superior Court by Dominique Cohen-Brezner accusing him of withholding money from her late husband, Larry Brezner, who died in 2015, was a partner with Tenenbaum and David Steinberg in MBST Entertainment.

According to the suit, Tenenbaum was obliged to share the revenues from Allen's films with his partners but Cohen-Brezner alleges that he "secretly arranged to defer income from Woody Allen's projects while at the same time planning to leave MBST and pocket the commissions for himself after forming his new management company."

The lawsuit also accuses Tenenbaum of failing to provide full accounting records of those funds to his management partners, and of designing the deals with foreign distributors in a manner such that payments are deferred and thus keeping all commissions for himself.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You feel a bit bored with your circumstances. You will be jolted out of your complacence with news that you may have to do something which is not convenient right now. You should not take changes around you personally. Do not jump to any conclusions but wait for an explanation. Money matters are cause for differences with your mate which disturb harmony at home. Interfering relatives will add to your woes.
