“CBS Chairman Leslie Moonves will be dragged into the legal drama surrounding Sumner Redstone after all, as a California judge switched gears after tentatively granting a motion to quash a subpoena served to him,” The Hollywood Reporter’s THR, Esq. reports.
“The 93-year-old Redstone is suing two of his former companions for elder abuse, and is seeking to reclaim millions in gifts he’d given them,” the story reports. “Both Sydney Holland and Manuela Herzer are also currently suing his daughter Shari Redstone for interfering with their inheritances — and now his business activities may be scrutinized and Moonves will join the fray.”
The report adds: “Holland wants to subpoena Moonves, as well as CBS and Viacom, claiming the exec has knowledge about Redstone’s romantic relationships that is relevant to allegations that she manipulated him out of millions.”
