Kristen Stewart met Middle Eastern prince for $500k charity donation

By
Kristen Stewart raised $500,000 for a good cause by agreeing to meet with a Middle Eastern prince.

Harvey Weinstein revealed at a screening of his Hurricane Sandy benefit concert documentary 12.12.12 that the unnamed royal agreed to donate cash to the relief fund if he got to spend 15 minutes with the actress.

The Twilight star was intrigued with the offer and asked Weinstein how much the prince was offering, leading the Miramax co-founder to broker the half-million dollar deal for the meeting.

The prince handed over the money before his 15-minute sit down with Stewart at Madison Square Garden. The sum was used for the Sandy relief effort.

The fundraiser raised a total of $30 million, with performances from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney.

12.12.12 was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend and is a mix of live performances and backstage footage from the event.
