“I mean, 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,” the singer revealed.

“So I thought, how’s a good way I can keep her safe is just keep making projects for her, and therefore most of the time we’re working together.”

She went on to reveal how she may have saved Maddie from a major Hollywood predator: “I kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on,” she shared.

“I know there are times where my insight has really made a difference… like kept her safe. Yeah, that was really disgusting.”

And while Sia did not discuss when the incident occurred, she did elaborate on how it happened and who she reached out to.

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

“Even recently, she was offered a part in a film and I felt that the film wasn’t good enough for her, and so I called Melissa, 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.’ So I just try and help guide,” she added.

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