Three Warner Music executives have been accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior. WMG reportedly took "disciplinary action" after Warner Bros. Records EVP of A&R Jeff Fenster and another unnamed executive were accused of sexual misconduct by a former staffer. The woman also accused WMG CEO Stephen Cooper of making an inappropriate remark at a party.
An internal memo from Masha Osherova, WMG Human Resources EVP, and shared by Variety, did not name the accused, but acknowledged the events:
“I’m writing to let you know that a former Warner Bros. Records US employee has come forward with concerns about inappropriate behavior by several of our US executives. We are expecting some press coverage to appear soon, and I wanted you all to hear about it first from me."
“As you would expect, we treated these concerns very seriously, and appointed an independent investigator to conduct a review. Some of the accusations were found to be true and, as a consequence, we are in the process of taking the appropriate disciplinary actions against the relevant employees. The press coverage regarding this matter will likely mention that our CEO, Steve Cooper, was accused of making an inappropriate remark at a party."
