“Twilight” star, Kristen Stewart, quickly raised $500,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief by meeting with an unnamed Middle Eastern Prince. US Weekly reported on September 11 that the prince was willing to spend half a million for just 15 minutes of the stars time.
Stewart worked a deal with movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein, to negotiate the deal. He told reporters that the deal took place during a screening for the Hurricane benefit concert film 12.12.12. Stewart was willing to chat with the prince in exchange for a hefty donation to the Sandy relief efforts. The meeting took place at Madison Square Garden.
A benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts will be held at Madison Square Garden later this year. A-list celebrities including Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Adam Sandler, Mick Jagger, Chris Rock managed to raise $30 million for relief efforts.
