A Middle Eastern prince enamored by Kristen Stewart donated a sum of $500,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, after the “Twilight” actress agreed to meet him for about 15 minutes, according to reports.
Film producer Harvey Weinstein, who helped organize the “12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief” and who was at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday to screen the documentary “12-12-12,” spilled the details about the prince’s meeting with Stewart, and how she secured half a million dollars for the charity.
Weinstein refused to divulge the identity of the prince, but said that that the prince’s people approached him and promised to make a hefty donation if Stewart agreed to meet the prince.
"How much?" Stewart asked when Weinstein approached her with the proposition, according to the New York Times. Weinstein checked with the prince, who quoted a figure, which the film producer immediately raised to $500,000. The amount, in cash, was delivered much ahead of the meeting.
"And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes," Weinstein said.
Stewart is currently in Germany shooting for her new movie “Sils Maria,” and reportedly, two of her friends flew in to meet the actress after being concerned about her mental health following her split with boyfriend Robert Pattinson early this year.
According to reports, Stewart and Pattinson’s relationship failed because they could not get past the incident where Stewart cheated on her boyfriend with married “Snow White And The Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders.
“Kristen's circle are so concerned about her that two of her friends have flown to Germany to see her,” a source told Now magazine.
“They want to take her to a de-stressing yoga retreat on the outskirts of Berlin. They've also begged Rob to visit her on set. They fear the stress is getting worse because she's been trying to make contact with him and he's ignoring all of her calls.”
