Journalist Nikki Finke died in October at the age of 68 after a long illness.
In the time leading up to her death, she began sending out tips to friends and news outlets that contained dirt on some of the biggest players in Hollywood.
According to a report from Radar Online ,some of these allegations are on the level of Harvey Weinstein.
Hollywood A-listers and moguls are in total panic fearing journalist Nikki Finke’s explosive tell-all files will be leaked — or fall into the wrong hands — after the notorious journalist spent decades burying damaging dirt on show business’ biggest names, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Although the tough-as-nails reporter was known for taking few prisoners, sources insisted Finke kept a colossal cache of damning intelligence to be used once she died.
Knowing her days were numbered due to poor health, Finke “began mailing out packets to trusted friends — and press outlets — containing allegations that are, in some cases, ‘Harvey-level bad,’ to direct quote someone who’s seen some of them,” the anonymous tipster wrote, referencing disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein
“The Hollywood producers, directors and stars who mistreated younger women, and in some cases younger men, but escaped #MeToo the first time around may not be as fortunate this time — including one of its very few moguls with even more power than Harvey.”
A New York Times article written about Finke said that she “struck fear into the hearts of Hollywood power players.”
Toward the end of her life, Nikki Finke, the journalist who struck fear into the hearts of Hollywood power players, believed she was onto one last story.
“A scoop is better than sex,” Ms. Finke told The New York Times in 2007, a year after she started the site, which took the name Deadline after the media entrepreneur Jay Penske acquired it in 2009. But at the time of her death, the reporter who had once made executives tremble had not published a scoop in nearly a decade.
Hopefully, the truth comes out!
