ROBERT DE NIRO OWED ALMOST $1 MILLION BY WEINSTEIN COMPANY

Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro claims to be owed $940,706 by embattled Harvey Weinstein’s former production company, The Weinstein Company, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

The Weinstein Company, which was co-founded by Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein) filed for bankruptcy in March, after the former had been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 70 women over the past few decades. The company’s assets are being sold to Lantern Capital.

De Niro was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in The Weinstein Company’s Silver Linings Playbook from 2012, which is the work he is claiming he’s still owed payment.
