Sia Claims She Saved Maddie Ziegler From Harvey Weinstein
Pop star Sia has claimed she prevented Maddie Ziegler from getting on a plane with Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood mogul recently convicted of sexual assault.
In an interview on the Zach Sang Show, the singer said she has always been protective of Ziegler, who was 11 when she starred in Sia’s video for “Chandelier.”
“As soon as I met Maddie, I felt extreme desire to protect her,” she explained. “I felt just extreme compulsion to protect her.
“I kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on ... Yeah, that was really disgusting. When he invited her, I told [Maddie's mom] Melissa, I just said, ‘Please don't, do not do that, do not do that, do not do that.’”
Sia believes her instincts “kept her safe."
