Did you know? Middle Eastern prince pays $500,000 to meet Stewart

Published: September 15, 2013

News has just emerged that actor Kristen Stewart was apparently paid a gigantic sum of $500,000 in exchange for a 15-minute meeting with a Middle Eastern prince. The Twilight star received the full amount in cash when she met the unidentified prince, along with his team of bodyguards, at Madison Square Garden in December 2012, the Mirror reported.

However, Stewart didn’t keep the money. It was donated to help raise funds for Hurricane Sandy’s relief efforts. Hollywood movie executive Harvey Weinstein revealed that he was the one who helped negotiate the deal between the prince and the actor, according to the Times of India.

Weinstein, who is currently promoting a documentary based on the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at the Toronto Film Festival, said Stewart’s immediate response was, “How much?,” when he revealed the offer.

The prince apparently had to shell out over $33,333 a minute, which is around $555 a second, to interact with Stewart.

    “$555 a second, to interact with Stewart.” or inter-C with Stewart?It is just the matter of time when oil is depleted and they will be selling their daughters.Just compare the world’s richest person Bill Gates how much he has invested in charity.If these Arabs did the same, I think there would not be a poor person on this Earth.
