Deadline Hollywood founder Nikki Finke is famous for breaking news on the entertainment industry.
But on Sunday night the hot Hollywood gossip was being reported not by her but about her.
Speculation about Finke's future at Deadline Hollywood heated up after rival online publication The Wrap reported that Finke was dismissed from her position after clashing with Jay Penske, the chief executive of Penske Media Corp., or PMC, which owns Deadline Hollywood.
However, soon after The Wrap posted its story, PMC put a statement on Deadline Hollywood calling the piece "libelous, false, and defamatory" and saying it didn't have an "ounce of truth to it."
So does that mean the often combative Finke is staying put?
Not necessarily. Although the statement from PMC said the company had not fired Finke, it also said she "has a multi-year contract with the company, and it is the company’s absolute intention to continue its obligations under the agreement."
