That Time Sia Stopped Maddie Ziegler From Getting on a Plane With Harvey Weinstein

Sia and Maddie Ziegler The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Popstar Sia revealed she once had to stop child star Maddie Ziegler boarding a plane with Harvey Weinstein.

Dance Moms star Ziegler, who is now 17, appeared in Sia’s award-winning “Chandelier” music video when she was 11-years old.

“I felt just extreme compulsion to protect her and yet the irony is that I didn’t want to be famous and I threw this child into the spotlight and she would say to me, ‘Don’t be silly — I was already famous and I wanted to be famous,'” Sia said on the Zach Sang Show.

She said: “You know I kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on. I know there’s times where my insight has really made a difference, like kept her safe. Yeah, that was really disgusting.”

Sia continued, “And I say, ‘And you know it can stop at any time right? If you want it to stop, I can make it stop. You can just go back to being a normal person again.'”

Sia said she advised Ziegler’s mother, Melissa, not to let her child on board the plane, telling her: “Please don’t, do not do that, do not do that, do not do that.”

It is unclear when this incident occurred. Weinstein, 68, is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for sexual assault and third-degree rape. The 68-year-old was found guilty of two of five felonies in February following a trial in Manhattan.
