Lexus is ending its partnership with film and TV production firm The Weinstein Co. after allegations that co-founder Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted a number of women.
"Lexus has chosen to terminate its agreements with The Weinstein Company that saw the luxury automaker working with the film studio on certain film and television projects," a company spokeswoman wrote in an e-mail to Reuters on Tuesday.
Lexus, Toyota Motor Corp.'s luxury brand, had been a sponsor of reality television show "Project Runway," which has been produced by Weinstein Co. Lexus said last week that it was "evaluating" its partnership with the company.
Harvey Weinstein was fired as CEO by the company earlier this month. He has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
Weinstein Co. did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
