It’s become a big guessing game in Hollywood circles—who is getting what and how much following the sale of TPG’s majority stake of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to French luxury goods mogul François-Henri Pinault in a reported $7 billion valuation.
A Financial Times report over the weekend said the talent agency’s top staff are in line to pocket more than $200 million. That could be a major payday for co-chairs Bryan Lourd, Kevin Huvane, and Richard Lovett, as well as big agents like Maha Dakhil, who just so happens to represent Salma Hayek, who is married to none other than Pinault.
