Model Jillian Michaels is a well-known figure in the modeling industry.
She is currently one of the most famous models of the world and is also a major fundraiser for women’s organizations, including the Women’s March on Washington.
Her popularity and influence has been a source of contention between some women who see her as a role model for women and some men who see the money she raises as a way to promote her career.
On Thursday, she and her husband, actor Robert De Niro, will be appearing at a fundraiser for Women’s Equality and Human Rights (WEAR), a campaign aimed at increasing the representation of women in the business world.
It’s an event that will feature some of the hottest names in Hollywood, including stars such as Jared Leto, Angelina Jolie, and Reese Witherspoon.
But for some women, the fundraiser comes with a little controversy.
“Jillian’s a very powerful person,” one attendee told the New York Times.
“It’s an issue of money.
And she has this huge, mega-celebrity, mega celebrity.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
And if it’s really about money, then there’s nothing problematic about a guy coming up to her, saying, ‘I’m so excited about this,’ or, ‘What are you doing?’
That’s what they do to me.
And it’s very personal.
It has nothing to do with my politics.”
A representative for Michaels did not immediately respond to the Times’ request for comment.
According to a recent Forbes article, Michaels has raised about $9.5 million in donations from fans and friends.
But some of those donations have come from men.
“As soon as they see my face, they think, ‘Oh, she’s going to give me money,'” one woman told the Times.
Another woman told reporters that she was approached by a man who asked her to join him for dinner in exchange for some money.
According the Times, Michaels told him she was only giving the money to a friend who needed it, but he insisted that she take the money back because “he doesn’t give money away.”
“It seems like a really strange way to give money to strangers,” one woman, who asked not to be named, told the paper.
The women who spoke to the newspaper expressed outrage at Michaels’ decision to attend a fundraiser in her name.
“She is very powerful,” one said.
“The women who work with her are very grateful that she’s willing to come.”
