Sia has discussed the time she stopped Maddie Ziegler getting on a plane with disgraced movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein. 

Appearing on the Zach Sang Show, the singer, 44, explained she has ‘always felt this extreme compulsion to protect Maddie’ ever since she first began working with her at age 11 on her Chandelier music video. 

The Cheap Thrills hitmaker explained it was her maternal instinct which made her step in when Harvey, 68, invited Maddie, now 17, to join him on a plane.

‘As soon as I met Maddie I felt this extreme desire to protect her, and I think that it was part of my own healing, and I felt this extreme compulsion to protect her,’ Sia explained on the show. 

Sia – who recently became a grandmother when one of her adoptive teenage sons welcomed two babies – gave a chilling examples of when her insight kept Maddie out of harm’s way.   

‘You know I kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on. Yeah, that was really disgusting… 

‘When he invited her, that’s when I called, I told [her mum] Melissa, I had to. I just said, “Please don’t, do not do that, do not do that, do not do that.”‘

It is unclear how old Maddie was when Weinstein allegedly invited her on the plane.  

Weinstein fell from one of the most powerful names in Hollywood to one of the most disgraced.

In his four-week #MeToo trial in Manhattan, accusers unearthed how he abused his power, preyed on dozens of women over the course of three decades, often dangling the promise of a movie career in exchange for sex acts.

Harvey was convicted of first-degree criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape and was sentenced to 23 years in prison in March.

Meanwhile, Sia also revealed she was protective of Maddie’s budding acting career, and stopped her from accepting a recent film offer as it ‘wasn’t good enough for her.’ 

‘I called Melissa [Maddie’s mum], and was like, “Please don’t do this, like this isn’t good for her career. It’s not good for her long term credibility. This is not a good co-star to be in a movie with!” 

‘I can be a pain in the butt. I think her manager thinks I’m a real pain in the butt, I’m sure.’

Sia has been celebrating good news of her own, after announcing she’s become a grandmother at the age of 44 – just weeks after announcing she adopted two sons last year.

The Chandelier hitmaker told DJ Zane Lowe on his Apple Music podcast: ‘My youngest son just had two babies. I’m a f**king grandma! I’m just immediately horrified. No, I’m cool.’
