Default Warner Bros. TV to investigate domestic violence allegations against Salim Akil

https://deadline.com/2018/11/salim-a...it-1202511459/

According to Deadline, Akil has not been suspended after actress Amber Dixon Brenner filed a lawsuit last week alleging sexual and physical abuse. "While not saying anything publicly and taking a stance of innocent until proven guilty when it comes to the EP, the studio will be conducting an inquiry with cast and crew on the Atlanta filmed show and OWN’s Love Is_, we’ve learned," Deadline reports, adding: "Even though the claims against Akil have nothing to do with his role as showrunner on Black Lightning, this move by the studio is now pretty standard practice in such circumstances. The aim is to address safety and other concerns on the series by cast and crew and confidentially discover if they have information they would like to share."

Salim Akil, Black Lightning boss and Love Is___ co-creator, sued for for alleged physical and sexual abuse

Actress Amber Dixon Breener filed suit against Akil on Nov. 20, alleging that she had a years-long "physically and sexually abusive relationship" with the TV writer, producer and director. Akil co-created Love Is___ with his wife Mara Brock Akil and serves as showrunner on The CW's Black Lightning. Jezebel reports that "Brenner’s accusations of abuse are numerous and harrowing. They include multiple instances of physical violence in the form of slapping, strangling, and forced oral sex. Brenner alleges, for example, that during a birthday party in Los Angeles’s Roosevelt Hotel, Akil asked her to follow him into the bathroom, where he slapped her, causing her to stumble backwards, and then commanded her to perform oral sex. Brenner’s complaint alleges that he then urinated in her mouth." Jezebel says it contacted Akil's attorney, production company and representation for a response, but has yet to hear back.
