The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is countersuing its former publicist for fraud, claiming that he can’t prove that the organization that runs the Golden Globes accepted bribes in exchange for special treatment of films, according to the AP. The suit also alleges that Michael Russell and his partner Stephen LoCascio were in breach of a confidentiality agreement, and that they used their ties to the awards show for financial gain. Last month, Russell sued the HFPA for $2 million, accusing the organization of engaging in “payola.”
