Ron Burkle celebrates Weinstein Co. deal with Hollywood pals

Ron Burkle was seen being congratulated by Hollywood types after closing a deal to buy the beleaguered Weinstein Company with a group led by Maria Contreras-Sweet.

Spies saw Burkle at LA’s starry Tower Bar with former “SNL” star David Spade.

“Everyone was coming up to Ron to congratulate him,” said a witness.

Burkle’s bid to buy the financially embattled studio went through on Thursday after eleventh-hour drama involving the attorney general of New York. Contreras-Sweet’s a former Obama administration official, and while Burkle had been close with Harvey Weinstein in the past, they are believed to be no longer in contact.
