JAY-Z is reportedly claiming he's owed $480,000 from his projects with the company, Time: The Kalief Browder Story and Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. He's asking for the money in two installments of $240,000. It's unclear as to why the money is owed.

Eminem claims only $48,000 of the money owed to him for use of his songs in 2015's Southpaw was paid, and is suing the company for the remaining total, $352,000. The songs used were “Phenomenal,” “Phenomenal 2” and “Kings Never Die."

The Weinstein Company filed for bankruptcy in March, following several months of allegations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein.
