Harvey Weinstein’s company still owes money to its former intern Malia Obama

By  | 

A film company founded by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein owes money to former first daughter Malia Obama, according to documents obtained by Deadline.

The outlet reported that the Weinstein Company owes money to a slew of prominent firms and organizations, including Obama, who worked as an intern at the company in 2017.  The company, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week, owes money to other famous figures such as the late David Bowie and actors Robert DeNiro and Daniel Radcliffe.

The Weinstein Company also owes money to businesses such as Amazon and Netflix, and charities such as the American Cancer Society.  The sale of the production company to an investor group for $500 million fell through earlier this month due to undisclosed liabilities.

Numerous women in the entertainment industry came forward last year to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, launching the prominence of the “Me Too” and “Times Up” movements.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) called on state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) to review the Manhattan district attorney’s handling of the probe into a sexual abuse allegation against Weinstein in 2015.

Hollywood star Rose McGowan, one of the first actresses to publicly speak out against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, will be appearing at the Hay Literature Festival .

And among the other names on the 2018 bill are American author Michael Wolff whose controversial book about American president Donald Trump – Fire And Fury – saw him labelled “a total loser” by the incumbent head of state.

McGowan will discuss her memoir, Brave, as part of the 800-strong event list due to take place over the 11-day festival.

The 44-year-old American actress, who starred in supernatural drama series Charmed, is one of scores of women who have come forward with sexual assault and rape allegations against multi-millionaire producer Weinstein.
