Chapter 456 Rebecca Gets Slandered
In the conference room at Morrison Group, Jyn was berating her employees in a fit of anger.
“You’re all useless! I don’t care what you do. You’d better stop Southlake Corporation from expanding its hold on the business market. Otherwise, you’re all out of a job! There’s no point keeping you useless people around anyway!”
She never expected Southlake Corporation to act this swiftly.
In mere days, Southlake Corporation’s latest products had a chokehold on all of the consumers in the towns surrounding Dhord City.
Furthermore, the consumers were leaving nothing but rave reviews.
This was an unprecedented blow to Morrison Group.
The senior executives gathered in the conference room dared not say a word.
“Get out, you pathetic bunch of trash!” Jyn screeched after eyeing them furiously.
Everyone hastily exited the conference room.
Once the senior executives were gone, Jyn turned her sharp gaze toward Ginger and called out,
“Yes, Ms. Morrison,” Ginger replied fearfully.
Jyn slapped Ginger on the face.
“Why haven’t I seen the results of what I asked you to do? Come up with a scandal to smear Rebecca right away!” Jyn demanded angrily.
“Yes, Ms. Morrison. I’ll get right on it,” Ginger said while clutching her cheek.
“I’m giving you two days. If I don’t see any bad publicity about Rebecca by then, you can pack your things up and get out of my sight!” Jyn threatened.
“Understood, Ms. Morrison!”
Ginger quickly left the conference room.
Seated at a table in a luxurious café, Ginger stared at the young man in a suit before her and pleaded, “You have to help me, Mr. Hoover. You’re the only one who can!”
She was talking to Ethan Hoover, the son of the Hoover family, an elite family in Dhord City.
Ginger came to Ethan for help because the Hoovers owned the largest media company in
Mia, the most famous female celebrity in Diatoran right now, was signed to their company,
With the Hoover family’s help, destroying Rebecca’s reputation would be a piece of cake.
“I can help you, Ms. Copley, but what do I get in return?” Ethan asked with a smile.
It was easy enough for Ethan to invent a scandal to defame a celebrity, but why should he waste his time on that?
Gritting her teeth, Ginger promised, “As long as you help me, Mr. Hoover, Morrison Group will invest 1.5 billion dollars into your company’s next movie project!”
Ethan smiled. 1.5 billion dollars was nothing to sneeze at.
Even though it could cost a small fortune to produce a movie, projects that didn’t involve a lot of CGI certainly wouldn’t cost more than a few hundred million dollars.
In fact, 100 million dollars could easily cover all the production costs.
Naturally, the rest of the money would go to him.
If Morrison Group invested 1.5 billion dollars into the movie, he would be pocketing at least a
Plus, all he needed to do was give a few instructions, and he could easily fulfill Ginger’s
How great would it be to get a billion dollars just by doing something so simple?
“I’ll do it!” Ethan declared with a chuckle, much to Ginger’s relief.
At the very least, she no longer had to worry about Jyn kicking her out of the company.
After all, Rebecca’s scandal would affect the sales of Southlake Corporation’s latest product
Due to the success of the promotional campaign, Southlake Corporation was facing a stock shortage. The manufacturing division back in Southlake City was working overtime to ensure the company had enough stock to meet sales demand.
With the way things were going at the moment, Southlake Corporation would soon be able to firmly establish itself in Dhord City’s business markets.
Over at the branch office in Enies, Willow was sitting at her desk. She finally found the time to
take a much–needed break.
She picked up her phone to check her social media accounts when she saw a notification for a trending news article.
The moment she read it, her expression turned grim.
“How could this be?” Willow exclaimed.
She quickly ran over to Caspian while crying out, “Something terrible has happened, hubby! Quick! Take a look at this.”
“What’s the matter?”
“Read this article,” Willow said before passing Caspian her phone.
When Caspian saw the headline, his brows knitted together.
“The Trending Female Celebrity With a Sordid Love Life! How Disgusting!”
The moment he read it, he knew someone was trying to slander Rebecca.
Celebrities could fall from grace as quickly as they rose in fame. A scandal could destroy their entire career and get them blacklisted–especially when the scandal involved personal matters. Such scandals often gained widespread attention.
The entertainment industry was filled with people who would do anything to come out on top. Rebecaa’s reputation would be severely affected if the false accusations weren’t properly resolved, and she might have to give up her career for good.
Now that Rebecca was Southlake Corporation’s ambassador, her reputation was tied to the company’s as well, and her image would impact the company’s sales.
Many who bought the latest product range did it because of Rebecca.
The scandal would also cause a huge blow to the company’s sales.
Clearly, someone was using the scandal to attack Southlake Corporation.
“Why would this happen?” Willow asked. She trusted Rebecca and didn’t believe the latter was a promiscuous woman.
In that case, why was the media accusing her of having a messy love life? Where did that news come from?
Willow immediately called Rebecca, but she started to panic when none of the calls went through.
Rebecca was her good friend. She didn’t want anything to happen to Rebecca.
If Rebecca suffered because of her association with Southlake Corporation, Willow would feel regretful for the rest of her life.
“What should we do, hubby? You don’t think Rebecca will do something extreme, right? If anything happens to her, I’ll live in regret forever!” Willow cried out tearfully
“Don’t worry, honey. Rebecca has been in the entertainment industry for so many years now. doubt it’s her first time encountering situations like these. Plus, we still have Keller,” Caspian assured Willow.
Keller had contributed greatly to the promotional campaign for Southlake Corporation’s latest product launch. He was planning on starting a medla company near Dhord City and had brought his team to the city as well.
“Hubby, I’m getting a bad feeling about this…” Willow said.
“It’s obvious what the people behind this are doing. They want to hurt Southlake Corporation,
He deduced that someone was slandering Rebecca to hamper the sales of Southlake Corporation’s latest products.
A scandal like this would damage Rebecca’s image, and her fans would stop supporting her, and Southlake Corporation’s sales would be affected, too.
As such, the scandal was no small matter. It was a vicious move.
Not only did the culprit want to destroy Rebecca’s career, but they even wanted to bring Southlake Corporation down in the process.
Rebecca’s career could be coming to an end due to this scandal.
Willow was beside herself with worry.
