Hearst Allegedly Cuts Scott Sassa Because He Sexts

Hearst Corporation has cut ties with Scott Sassa, president of Hearst Entertainment, because of his alleged enjoyment of saucy sexts. According to The New York Post, Sassa had exchanged some NSFW texts with a stripper he met in Los Angeles. That stripper and her boyfriend then tried to blackmail Sassa, saying that they’d send the texts directly to his bosses if Sassa didn’t send some cash.

Sassa refused the demands, and bam! Frank Bennack Jr.David Carey and Michael Clinton all got a very interesting email. The Post reported that the execs called Sassa into a meeting on Tuesday and informed him he needed to resign. A source claimed that Hearst is giving Sassa a “large compensation package for him to go away for a long time.”

Hearst has already removed Sassa’s bio from the company website.
