Actress Charlotte Kirk allegedly at center of Ron Meyer's NBCUniversal exit – Page Six

The woman that former NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer allegedly had a brief “consensual affair” and subsequently entered into a settlement with, leading to his exit from the company, is reportedly British actress Charlotte Kirk.

According to Variety, the alleged affair between Kirk, 28, and Meyer, 75, occurred eight years ago.

In a statement on Tuesday, the exec, who was ousted after 25 years at NBCUniversal, claimed that once others became aware of the settlement with an unnamed woman, third-parties, “continuously attempted to extort me into paying them money” by threatening to publish false claims about Meyer or falsely implicate NBCUniversal in the ordeal.

Meyer gave little information about the settlement other than that the woman with whom he’d had the brief affair “made false accusations against me.”

Kirk — whose film credits include “Ocean’s 8,” “How to be Single,” and “Vice” — previously engaged in an extramarital affair with former Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, 55, in 2013 and 2014. That particular tryst also resulted in resignation, as leaked text messages and allegations that Tsujihara attempted to use his position to get Kirk film and television spots, prompted his exit from Warner Bros. in 2019.

Kirk later came to Tsujihara’s defense, telling Daily Mail that he did nothing wrong during their time together. She also denied leaking their personal text messages.

Neither Meyer, nor Kirk, has confirmed the actress as the unnamed woman in question, but Kirk’s lawyer told Variety that he’s “never done a settlement with Ron Meyer on anything.”

On Tuesday, NBCU CEO Jeff Shell said in a statement that Meyer “had acted in a manner which we believe is not consistent with our company policies or values. Based on Ron’s disclosure of these actions, we have mutually concluded that Ron should leave the company, effective immediately.”

Reps for Kirk did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
