AceShowbiz - Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence are both owed over $100,000 by The Weinstein Company, according to new court documents. Partners at disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's former company are currently in the middle of a bankruptcy battle, and it has now come to light that the two Oscar winners are owed cash.
According to papers obtained by The Blast, The Weinstein Company accountants have filed statements detailing the amounts of money various creditors are owed, and Meryl is owed almost $143,000, while Jennifer is owed over $102,000.
Streep and Lawrence were both outspoken after Weinstein's lawyers mentioned them as part of his defence in a class action lawsuit, using positive remarks they had made about the producer.
Lawrence responded in a statement which read: "Harvey Weinstein and his company are continuing to do what they have always done which is to take things out of context and use them for their own benefit. This is what predators do, and it must stop."
She added, "While I was not victimized personally by Harvey Weinstein, I stand behind the women who have survived his terrible abuse and I applaud them in using all means necessary to bring him to justice whether through criminal or civil actions."
Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct, inappropriate behaviour and even rape by over 80 women, including many big name actresses, but Lawrence and Streep have always maintained they knew nothing of his bad reputation.
