Sitrick’s Sallie Hofmeister has a new client she’ll be splitting time with while the Songkick case winds its way through the court.
Amplify has learned that Hofmeister is providing crisis PR services for embattled Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.
Hofmeister is one of the few voices left at Songkick — Songkick publicist Rebecca Silverstein quietly left the company last month as did most of the ticketing staff including Josh Baro, co-author of the ticketing history text “Ticket Masters.”
Hofmeister has had a busy week defending the film executive and power producer behind films like “Good Will Hunting” and “Pulp Fiction.”
Working with Weinstein has kept Hofmeister busy — after several women accused the producer of rape on Monday, Hofmeister released a statement explaining “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied” and that with respect to incidents described as sexual assault, “Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual” and that “Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance.”
Earlier this week a TV news reporter accused Weinstein of luring her into the basement of one of his restaurants and holding her captive while he masturbated in front of her.
