RadiumOne and Gurbaksh Chahal issued a joint statement today in order "to bring an end to all disputes they have had." RadiumOne fired Chahal as CEO after he pled guilty to domestic violence. Chahal threatened to sue his board for encouraging him to take a plea rather than fight the 45 felony counts he was facing in court so that the company could file for an IPO.
Gurbaksh Chahal, the RadiumOne CEO who was fired after pleading guilty to domestic violence, has launched his new startup with what appears to be a low-budget Nike ad. Ever the marketeer, Chahal added his own twist to the stock footage of men jumping off cliffs: a dramatic voiceover, written in the same kind of business gibberish as his blog.
Over the weekend, RadiumOne's board of directors voted to "terminate the employment" of CEO and Chairman Gurbaksh Chahal related to his guilty plea for domestic violence. But an internal memo clarifying the situation shows that Chahal is still on the board of the online advertising network, even though he's no longer chairman.
Today RadiumOne CEO Gurbaksh deleted tweets maintaining his "innocence," after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors for domestic violence and battery. During his Twitter spree last night, Chahal also denied the existence of a videotape that showed him hitting and kicking his girlfriend 117 times, which was suppressed by the judge.
RadiumOne CEO Gurbaksh "G" Chahal pled guilty to two misdemeanors for domestic violence and battery last week. The ad-tech executive faced 45 felony charges based on security footage from his San Francisco penthouse apartment, which allegedly showed him hitting and kicking his girlfriend 117 times in half an hour.
"He's single!," Oprah once gushed to her audience over Gurbaksh Chahal, a studly young startup founder who only a year before had sold his company to Yahoo! for $300 million. Now he's facing 41 counts of assault.
