According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Aniston denies The Weinstein Company’s claim she is owed nothing from them. Aniston starred in the 2005 film "Derailed” with Clive Owen, which was produced by TWC.
The actress says she "strongly believes" that the company’s claim over what she is owed is inaccurate. She accuses them of failing to provide her with an accounting of the film's profits since 2016.
Her filing reads, "Aniston must be given a full and fair opportunity to examine the Debtors’ books and records concerning a reconciliation of the revenues generated by the Film and the expenses claimed by the Debtors as credits/offsets to the payment of applicable revenues to Aniston."
Jennifer Aniston is the latest in a string of A-list celebrities heading to court to object to TWC’s sale of assets.
As The Blast first reported, Pitt, Julia Roberts, and Leo DiCaprio were among the megastars who filed documents this objecting to the proposed sale of The Weinstein Company‘s assets in order to preserve money they claim they are owed for several major films.
The three A-listers were just a few of the celebs who are trying to make sure they don’t get screwed when it comes time to sell the company. They are all worried that if the bankruptcy court goes through the assets with a machete, their royalty checks could get axed.
Each of the celebrities involved filed their own documents, but they repeat the same theme — they are each owed money for movies they did and they aren’t even sure how much because several of them claim TWC failed to provide them with accounting for years.
