The less famous celebrities were forced into doing things with Olivia, but how badly were they forced and humiliated for them to fall apart?
It was perplexing why the deputy director let Olivia have her ways with the male artists.
Sean had said it was because Olivia could bring benefits to the company, but a celebrity who just couldn‘t be famous enough and couldn‘t even be considered a B–lister managing to get the resources of an A–listers was baffling.
It wasn‘t until today, when Mr. Brown showed up, that he suddenly understood.
It might be related to taking videos.
The deputy director‘s face turned dark” What do you know?”
“You‘re in this together, or he wouldn‘t be here for me.” Hector pointed at the man with the gold chain and ignored his expression. “You needed a scapegoat, and it had to be someone new to the company and could get close to a low–level actress. If I followed your instructions and something happened, I would have to take the fall for it. Zestar would be able to pretend they didn‘t know anything and kick me aside.”
He chuckled and looked at the deputy director. “Olivia was interested in me, so you played along and let me approach her. If I did something with her, you would have a hold of me and could use that to manipulate me, am I right?”
The man suddenly laughed and spoke with an eerie expression. “You really are a smart man. I wonder if you‘re a spy sent by someone. No matter, even if you found out, I wouldn‘t let Zestar fall because of you. You should know nothing good would come out of fighting against us.”
A few bodyguards walked in and surrounded Hector.
Hector raised his arms. “I won‘t fight back. I‘ll go with you.”
Mr. Brown stood up. “That‘s the smart thing to do.”
Hector walked out with the bodyguards without a word.
When they walked out of the building, a group of reporters rushed toward them and blocked their path, asking if this was all related to Olivia‘s scandal.
Mr. Brown noticed that something was off, so he got the man in the gold chain to get rid of the reporters.
But when the man walked over, Hector suddenly pointed at them, “It‘s a deal between Zestar and them, I‘m the only person who knows anything, and they‘re trying to take me away and get rid of me.”
That caused chaos to break out.
“Hector, that‘s b*llshit!” The man with the gold chain turned pale while he grabbed him by the collar.
Hector ignored him and looked at the cameras, “The male artists that Zestar banned from work are the ones that aren‘t famous and don‘t have resources. They had to become Olivia‘s playthings because the higher–ups pressured them. They were secretly filmed, but the company executives wiped them all clean.” “Shut up!” The man raised his hand to punch him, but Hector didn‘t flinch and took the hit.
The reporters spoke up. “Why are you hurting him!?”
“So, this man was right. There could never be a snitch in Zestar!”
The man in the gold chain looked at Hector, who stood up and wiped away the blood from the corner of his mouth and smiled. “As for evidence, I hope the police will thoroughly investigate this and bring closure to the artists.”
This was when Sean walked out. “I’m a witness, and Mr. Vanderbilt is telling the truth.”
The employees came out after Sean. “We are witnesses too. We can‘t take this anymore. Zestar has been bullying and threatening us to let what Olivia did slip, or our family and job would be at stake!”
