Madonna has revealed that Harvey Weinstein “crossed lines and boundaries” when they worked together in the 90s.
The songstress worked with the disgraced film producer our her tour documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare in 1991, which was distributed by Harvey’s former company Miramax.
Speaking to The New York Times, Madonna said: “Harvey crossed lines and boundaries and was incredibly sexually flirtatious and forward with me when we were working together; he was married at the time, and I certainly wasn’t interested.”
The Like A Prayer singer said she felt like she had to “put up with it” at the time.
She said: “I was aware that he did the same with a lot of other women that I knew in the business.”
“And we were all, ‘Harvey gets to do that because he’s got so much power and he’s so successful and his movies do so well and everybody wants to work with him, so you have to put up with it.’ So that was it.”
Madonna said she was glad when Harvey was “finally” exposed in 2017, when a number of women came forward and accused him of sexual misconduct.
Madonna continued: “So when it happened, I was really like, ‘Finally.’ I wasn’t cheering from the rafters because I’m never going to cheer for someone’s demise. I don’t think that’s good karma anyway.
“But it was good that somebody who had been abusing his power for so many years was called out and held accountable,” she added.
