Federal Judge Won’t Let Former Fox News Star Conceal That Her Feminism Book Was Ghostwritten By Man – By Cameron Cawthorne / Aug 11 2017
A New York federal judge on Thursday rejected former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros’ efforts to conceal the fact that her 2016 book on feminism was ghostwritten by a man.
U.S. District Court judge Katherine Forrest made the decision to publicly disclose a case captioned as [Under Seal] v. [Under Seal], revealing that Michael Krechmer, who Tantaros contacted to be her ghostwriter, is suing the ex-Fox News host for breaching their agreement over her book, Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable.
Krechmer filed the lawsuit back in October 2016, but it was only made public recently due to a confidentiality provision within the original agreement that kept it private, the Hollywood Reporter reported Friday.
According to an opinion and order from U.S. District Court judge Katherine Forrest on Thursday, Krechmer and Tantaros entered into a collaboration agreement in May, 2015. The deal included a confidentiality provision. Krechmer alleges that a couple months later, the two agreed to terminate the agreement in favor of a new “Ghostwriting Agreement,” where he’d be paid a flat fee of $150,000.
