In late October, the ex-wife of entrepreneur Dan Price gave a public talk alleging that she had been physically abused by her former husband. A video of the talk, part of a TEDx event at the University of Kentucky, was scheduled to be posted online this month. But after a representative for Price, chief executive officer of Gravity Payments, contacted the university, it decided not to make the video public.

Bloomberg Businessweek wrote about the video in an article about Price in the Dec. 7-Dec. 13 edition of the magazine. Price had risen to fame after announcing he would pay his employees a minimum of $70,000 a year. The article cited inconsistencies in the story Price told the media about his motivations for the well-publicized pay raise.
