Hollywood's biggest stars are suing disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein's company for alleged unpaid royalties.

According to a report in The Sun,  A listers including George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Lawrence filed legal action to get back millions they contend are owed to them by the Weinstein Company.

The stars joined together to file a motion in a U.S. bankruptcy court, claiming they haven't been paid since March.

Weinstein's company was sold to Lantern Entertainment LLC earlier this year.

According to the report, the celebrities began legal action to find out if Lantern is liable for their contracts and if so, to force the company to pay up.

As Radar extensively reported, the world was stunned when Weinstein's shocking sexual harassment scandal blew wide open, with more than 20 women accusing him of misconduct.

He was forced out of his famous studio.

Radar recently revealed exclusive details of Weinstein, 66, allegedly bragging about having sex with The Hunger Games actress Lawrence, 28.

According to court papers filed by Jane Doe in Los Angeles, Weinstein said he'd bedded Lawrence.

In a statement, Lawrence denied having sex with him, noting, "My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein. I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him."

Now, however, she and other stars reportedly believe his company could have cheated them out of money from their movies.

But for now, that's the least of Weinstein's worries. On May 25, 2018, he was charged by New York police with "rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for incidents involving two separate women."

Weinstein is pleading not guilty and is wearing an ankle bracelet while out and about.
