Kevin Tsujihara is leaving his role as chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment. He joined Warner Bros. back in 1994 and took charge of the film and TV studio in 2013. This is as a result of allegations of him been in a romantic relationship with actress Kirk after Hollywood Reporter published texts between the two that indicated she sought his help in obtaining acting jobs,.

John Stankey, the CEO of WarnerMedia, said Monday that “it is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners for Kevin to step down as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Kevin has contributed greatly to the studio’s success over the past 25 years and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the Company’s leadership expectations and could impact the Company’s ability to execute going forward.”

WarnerMedia continues to work with a third-party law firm to complete its investigation, with Tsujihara’s cooperation, in the wake of texts that were dropped in the trades revolving around the executive’s alleged involvement in having British actress charlotte Kirk  cast in Warners movies Ocean’s 8 and How to Be Single following an extramarital affair. WarnerMedia has yet to name a successor for Tsujihara. The company will name an interim leadership team on Tuesday.
