Live Nation places production chief on leave of absence

Live Nation Entertainment Inc. has hired a third-party firm to investigate allegations of verbally abusive behavior and offensive language against Production Chief Heather Parry, Variety reported Dec. 21, citing a company spokesman.

Parry, who has overseen the film and TV production division of Live Nation since December 2015, was placed on a leave of absence six months after 10 employees filed HR complaints against the executive, multiple sources told Variety.

"It's unfortunate, as a woman running a new division at one of the largest entertainment companies in the world, that you can be targeted simply because of how others perceive a woman in power," Parry reportedly said in a statement. "I am deeply saddened by these accusations and gossip that in no way reflect who I am, or what I truly value. If I hurt someone, I am sorry and apologize as that was never my intention."

She is an executive producer of "A Star Is Born" and produced documentaries with Lady Gaga and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
