The management of the Manhattan Mini storage company have reportedly threatened to start auctioning off the items in the storage unit because the amount owed to them has been outstanding for a long period of time.
According to the New York Post, filmmaker, Spike Lee, somehow heard about the debt and has said that he would pay the money for the late Malcom X’s estate.
Spotted at a Grand Classics screening of “Midnight Cowboy” at the famous hotel, the W Downtown, last Thursday, the filmmaker reportedly requested that the storage company call him and he would “take care of it”.
The filmmaker may feel some connection to the murdered civil rights icon because he was one of the writers and producers behind the movie, “Malcolm X,” which starred Denzel Washington. Ignoring the bill would have seemed unusual considering the filmmaker’s ties to the late Malcom X.
According to the New York Post, Lee may not have to step up after all as the Malcom X estate has said they have the intention to pay. They have also stated that the storage unit doe snot have anything of value that can be associated with the late Malcom X.
Spike Lee is currently busy with directing “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” a memoir show starring boxing legend, Mike Tyson.
