Selena Gomez Gives Time’s Up Donation That Exceeds Woody Allen Film Salary

By  | 

Selena Gomez‘s mom says she advised her daughter not to work on accused child molester Woody Allen‘s new movie, A Rainy Day in New York, but she wouldn’t listen.

“Sorry, no one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to,” Mandy Teefey wrote on Instagram. “I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”

Many people slammed the “Wolves” singer not only for her decision to be a part of the film, but also because she shied away from the topic when she was directly asked. But in the wake of so many people coming forward to stand up against sexual misconduct, SelGo must’ve realized she had to do something and decided to make a hefty donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

A source close to the former Disney Channel star tells People magazine that she “made a significant donation anonymously” to the organization, which “will provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers.”

The exact amount she donated was not disclosed, but the source says it “far exceeded [the] salary” she received from working on A Rainy Day in New York.

Sel’s co-star, Timothée Chalamet, decided to donate his entire salary from the film to three incredible charities so he can “be worthy of standing should to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
