Chapter 106 Even More Exciting
In the meantime, Mr. Wills and his team were setting the pace as they pursued their targets. After gaining complete control of the situation. Mr. Wills went to Simone’s office. Simone and Gwen were watching a live stream of a variety show. As expected, the tone of the livestream had completely changed.
Previously, they had been criticizing Fiona, but now it was filled with sympathy and words of encouragement. Fiona’s performance in the variety show did not disappoint. When Mr. Wills entered. Simone smiled at him. “Please have a seat!” Suppressing his excitement, Mr. Wills sat across from the two women before updating them on their operations.
Simone nodded with a smile. “You’ve done an excellent job.”
Mr. Wills pondered for a moment. “Miss Gray, if we set the pace and put pressure on Gray Entertainment, will they really take action against Titus?” At that point, Gray Entertainment was controlled by the brothers of the Gray Family, and they practically had complete control over the company.
So, he wasn’t sure if Reuben would be willing to take action against his own younger brother. However, Simone replied with great certainty. “Don’t worry. Based on my understanding of Reuben, he will make Titus provide an explanation to the company and to the public. However, this won’t mean they are compromising. Reuben is eventually going to inherit the chairman position in Gray Group, and Titus will be trained to take over Gray Entertainment. They need to satisfy the shareholders now in order to take those two positions smoothly in the future. So, they will use Titus Gray as a scapegoat to appease the public anger. The two artists under Titus Gray will also be expelled and held accountable, Simone said.
“Within half an hour, Gray Entertainment’s official website and Facebook will definitely announce the results of their actions against the three individuals,” she added after glancing at her watch.
Mr. Wills now had a lot of trust in Simone. “So, Titus is done for this time?” Simone shook her head. “No, after some time, when the heat dies down, and no one is paying attention any longer, Reuben will start using him again. They believe in the idea of working together and having mutual benefits, which is why they are so against the idea of having outsiders in the
Simone could empathize with Mr. Wills when she saw the look of discontent on his face. After all, anyone who was manipulated and plotted against by Titus would want to retaliate as soon as possible and completely crush the other party. “Don’t worry; our counterattack this time will have an impact on the Gray brothers as well.” She smirked. “If this happens a few more times, even if Tinus is the chairman’s own son, he won’t be able to take over Gray Entertainment in the future.”
Since Reuben will be transferred to the group, it will also have a significant impact on his
resume. We won’t know if he can successfully
Gray Family s
future.” One way or another, it was Simone’s plan to continue adding fuel to the fire and obstructing their path. Just like they did to her. Tit for tat.
Mr. Wills calmed down after that conversation. It was already quite a success for them to have forced Gray Entertainment to cast out Titus. Titus reputation was almost completely ruined in the industry. Furthermore, their actions had completely tarnished the reputation of the top talent agent. The two of them chatted for a while longer.
Gwen picked up her phone after a while. “Everything is within Simone’s expectations and control. Gray Entertainment has posted the outcome on their official Facebook page and apologized to Fiona and everyone.”
“Reuben is the smartest among his brothers,” Simone commented. “Handling the situation. and apologizing to the public as quickly as possible will indeed divert their attention from the company. It will also calm down a lot of people’s anger.”
“Should we continue to press on?” Mr. Wills asked. “We don’t need to focus on Gray Entertainment anymore,” Simone replied. “If we cross the line, Gray Group might take action. We don’t have the strength to compete with Gray Group right now. Furthermore, the public’s attention span won’t be long. They have already dealt with the situation and apologized. If we keep targeting them, the public might turn against us.”
Then, she changed the subject. “But we can keep an eye on Titus,’ she uttered thoughtfully. “Knowing him, after being humiliated like this, and after having the company turning against him, he definitely won’t go to the company for a while. He will most likely go to various entertainment venues to vent his emotions.”
“And if we keep an eye on Jodie, she’ll probably play her role as the good sister. She will definitely take the opportunity to show her support after her brother’s incident. If they are together, we should immediately contact the paparazzi. They will surely capture some useful photos. We don’t even need to spend money on marketing. We can just watch the show,” Simone commented.
Gwen chuckled. “That’s a good idea. Season two of Simone’s variety show will probably start next week. Let’s give Jodie some of the spotlight. We should just listen to Simone from now on. She knows what she’s doing.”
Mr. Wills smiled with a look of admiration on his face. “From now on, we will all listen to President Gray.” Simone is really amazing, Mr. Wills thought. Not only can she predict the opponent’s moves, but she also knows how to strike back. If something scandalous about Titus and Jodie is captured by the paparazzi, things will get even more exciting.
“I’ll book a restaurant for tomorrow night and invite everyone from the studio, Simone suggested. “Let’s have a meal together. Everyone has worked hard these past few days!”
Mr. Wu chuckled. Tll inform them later. It was comfortable to work with Simone. She wasn’t
just a powerful fighter: she was also respectful toward everyone.
Meanwhile, Steven was in his office at Gray Group having tea with a close shareholder. This shareholder was Donovan Gulls, and he was the general manager of one of the influential departments in the company. “Mr. Gray, have you heard about what happened at the entertainment company today?” Donovan asked
Steven had been paying attention to this matter of course. “Yes, I heard.”
Donovan smiled. “Like father, like daughter. Your daughter has a strong ability to strategize Among Steven’s several children. Reuben had always been the one that most people looked up to Previously. Donovan also had a good impression of Titus Donovan figured that Titus was quite capable, although not as good as the other children.
But this incident completely changed his view. Among Steven’s children, it seemed that his daughter was the most impressive one‘ Her various calculations and counterattacks this time were simply perfect. Moreover, she knew when to pause and assess the situation, which was
Steven smiled bitterly. I underestimated her in the past. The sibling rivalry turned her into the victor. This was something he hadn’t expected. It had also turned the Gray Family into the public’s laughingstock. It was rare for siblings to turn against each other like this in their industry.
Donovan smiled. “Your daughter is a promising talent. I believe she should be provided with more attention and training. She has a good understanding of the entertainment industry, and I think she is more suitable to be the future successor of Gray Entertainment”
He and Steven were on the same team, which was why he could be so direct. Although Gray Entertainment was just a subsidiary of the group, it had been generating considerable profits in recent years. As major shareholders, they received one–third of the total annual dividends from the entertainment subsidiary
Naturally, they hoped for even greater success for the entertainment subsidiary. After this incident, Steven had a different perspective on Simone, and he began to recognize her abilities even more. However, he sighed. “She holds a significant bias and resentment towards the Gray Family. I’m not sure if she would be willing to return to the entertainment company.”
The Gray Family business was inherited from Steven’s ancestors, and he had always been committed to taking it to the next level. Both Titus and Simone were his own blood. As long as one of them could manage the entertainment company better than the other, he would support whoever was in charge.
So, he was somewhat tempted by his friend’s suggestion. Yet, he was concerned that Simone would resist. Donovan also had some knowledge about the Gray Family. After pondering for a moment, he offered some advice. “As a father, if you extend a helping hand to her, I believe
she would follow you. I heard she is also skilled in geomancy. Can you help me get in touch with her? Perhaps you can invite her to come and assist me. What do you think?” Donovan asked.
