Rob Lowe's Half-Billion $$$ Media Project

6/29/2010 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Lowe is at dinner in London right now, discussing what sources tell us is a "major, major, major media deal."

We got video of Lowe, entering the C London restaurant with Tom Barrack, President of Colony Capital which co-owns Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch, along with the MJ estate.  Lowe and Barrack are having dinner with Flavio Briatore, a major Formula One player, and Giuseppe Cipriani -- the owner of the restaurant.

Sources say the foursome is discussing a $500 million deal to create "a multi-platform media company, similar to DreamWorks."

We're told the deal involves, among other things, TV, movie and Internet production.

Ummm you may want to do some research. Flavio Briatore was banned from F1 last year and although that was overturned, has no dealings with Formula One whatsoever.

Briatore is EX F1 player (having been BANNED from the sport for race fixing), and EX QPR football club (related to the F1 scandal). A dummy who happened to get in with the Benetton family early on, now seemingly able to pull $100's of millions out of thin air! Friends with Ecclestone normally = MILLIONS!

Flavio Briatore USED to be a major F1 player but was banned for cheating...he is sooo icky gross.... also he is Heidi Klum's first baby daddy which I am sure she is just thrilled about. Again he is icky.

...maybe the most pathetic "leak" to the tabs EVER. "a source close to the deal" = one of them furiously texting a staffer at TMZ in the hopes someone would photograph them going into the restaurant. and here's a hint for them as they obviously don't have publicists - a "leak" to TMZ doesn't put half billion dollar deals together. talent does. whoops.
