Amazon Exec Roy Price's Fiancée Calls Off Wedding After Harassment Claim
Amazon Studios programming chief Roy Price was set to marry playwright and TV writer Lila Feinberg on Nov. 12, but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Feinberg has called off the wedding.
The move comes just days after Isa Hackett, an executive producer on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle and Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, came forward in an interview with THR accusing Price of propositioning her during San Diego Comic-Con in 2015. Price was accused of lewdly propositioning Hackett who claims that he told her, "You will love my dick." (Hackett is the daughter of the late Philip K. Dick.)
The wedding news was first reported by Page Six's Emily Smith and confirmed by THR through a rep for Feinberg. The couple, who had made many red-carpet appearances in 2017, including at events such as the Golden Globes and the streaming service's post-Oscar party, were due to wed in New York at the Carlyle.
Also confirmed is that Feinberg had worked with Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman to create a custom dress for the wedding, linking the two explosive stories coming out of Hollywood last week. Chapman announced that she was leaving her husband, Harvey Weinstein, in the wake of dozens of allegations of sexual misconduct, harassment and forced sex acts.
Feinberg is a working writer whose résumé includes the Araca Group's National Graduate Playwriting Award for her play Vertebrae. She is the creator and executive producer of 12 Parties, an original series that was acquired by The Weinstein Co. Her other credits include Younger.
THR has reached out to a rep for Price but has not heard back as of press time. Following THR's report, Amazon said Price was being suspended from his top post at Amazon Studios. A day later, vp business development Jeff Blackburn issued a memo to employees addressing harassment. "The news coming out of Hollywood over the past week has been shocking and disturbing — and unfortunately we are a part of it," read the memo, first obtained by BuzzFeed News. "It's sad and very disappointing to me. Amazon does not tolerate harassment or abuse of our employees or our business partners. If a concern is brought to our attention, we investigate it quickly and thoroughly."
