Charlize Theron Did Not Have Consent To Auction Meeting With Nelson Mandela

Charlize Theron didn’t have the consent of Nelson Mandela to put a meeting with him under the hammer at an auction last week.

The actress auctioned a meeting with the former South African president at a charity event in San Francisco earlier this month — the same event where she famously smooched another woman — but the Nelson Mandela Foundation said a meet-and-greet with the anti-apartheid icon needed “a rigorous process” and that the South African-born star was yet to send in a request.

“Not even the charity foundations Mandela himself established are allowed to auction off time with him,” NMF’s chief executive Achmat Dangor Dangor said in a statement to the BBC on Wednesday.
