According to a source who spoke with Us Weekly, Selena Gomez made a sizable contribution to the Times Up legal fund. After the actress/singer faced criticism for working with Woody Allen, Gomez decided to donate money as a response to her haters.
Reportedly, the amount Gomez gave to the organization exceeded the pay she received for working in Allen’s film. The insider said, “Selena donated a lot of money to the fund, more than she made for the Woody Allen flick.”
The source claimed, “Selena is 100% on board with the #MeToo movement. It’s incredibly important for her to support women and their stories. She chose to work with Allen because the allegations against him are not numerous and a lot of them are without merit.”
The singer is working on the Woody film which follows two young people as they spend a weekend in New York but suffer unfortunate circumstances including bad weather and other misadventures.
Mandy Teefey, who is Selena’s mother, said her daughter shouldn’t have joined the cast because it would be terrible publicity.
One Instagram user wrote on the platform that Selena should write an apology for choosing to work with Allen. Teefey said Gomez apparently decided not to take her advice and she doesn’t have to do what her mother says; she’s 25-years-old now.
On the 15th of January, Teefey said she had a “long talk” about her working with Woody and it “didn’t click.” Her advice “falls on deaf ears,” and there’s nothing she can do about it.
On the 15th of January, other cast and crew members donated to women’s charities as a response to the Allen backlash.
Timothée Chalamet wrote on Instagram that he intended to donate his “entire salary” to three charities involving women’s rights. Chalamet is one of the cast members in the upcoming Allen flick.
