Insiders tell Page Six they suspect the Grammys fired its first-ever female boss in an attempt to silence her — after she wrote a bombshell memo alleging misconduct inside the organization, including sketchy voting practices, financial mismanagement, and conflicts of interest.
Deborah Dugan took the helm of the Recording Academy — the organization behind the Grammys — in August. But on Thursday, it announced that she’d been put on leave because “a formal allegation of misconduct [was made against her] by a senior female [staff] member.” The New York Times reported that an assistant — whom she had inherited from previous boss Neil Portnow — had accused her of bullying.
The article goes on to state the following:
But a source close to Dugan tells us that is iffy, and they suspect that she got the boot after sending a memo to the academy’s HR department three weeks ago, in which she said that “something was seriously amiss at the Academy.”
“Her concerns detailed in the memo included voting irregularities, financial mismanagement, ‘exorbitant and unnecessary legal bills, and conflicts of interest involving members of the academy’s board, executive committee and outside lawyers,” the Times reported.
According to the Fox News report, and “insider” suggested that the Recording Academy is “trying to shut up people who want to speak about their experience with the truth of sexual harassment, financial impropriety and [improper] insider benefits?”
Dugan attorney, Bryan Freedman, said there are more details about the incident that will be “exposed.” “
“What has been reported is not nearly the story that needs to be told,” he said in a statement. “When our ability to speak is not restrained by a 28-page contract and legal threats, we will expose what happens when you ‘step up’ at the Recording Academy, a public nonprofit.”
In the wake of her suspension as Recording Academy president and CEO, Deborah Dugan said through her attorney that she’ll soon “expose” what really happened https://t.co/SSeCwG9N1f
