Interview Magazine, founded by Andy Warhol, shuts down

But in its glory days, little conferred sophistication like appearing on the cover of Interview, then named Andy Warhol's InterVIEW.

It's perhaps no surprise that under Warhol and Sischy, many LGBTQ figures graced Interview covers over the years, including Fran Lebowitz, Lily Tomlin, Truman Capote, Jodie Foster, Divine, George Michael, and Warhol himself. A lawyer whose firm has represented Interview and its parent Brant Publications in legal matters over the previous year declined to comment on the magazine's closure or the bankruptcy.

Interview magazine, founded by Andy Warhol almost 50 years ago in 1969, is shutting down, according to staff tweets and a report at the New York Observer.

Interview Editor Ezra Marcus told CNNMoney that staffers were informed that the magazine is filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in a meeting on Monday.

Longtime employee Deborah Blasucci is suing the company under claims that she was sacked for making too much money, and three other female employees have accused creative director Karl Templer of "overstepping professional lines", though Templer denies these accusations.

Prior to his departure from the magazine in April, Baron had worked at Interview for 10 years. Interview also allegedly owes his stylist wife Ludivine Poiblanc $66,000.

The company was embroiled in a number of legal issues regarding payments from owner and billionaire Peter Brant, who bought Interview in 1987.

In 2004, a collection of the best of the magazine was collected in a 7-volume box set, titled Andy Warhol's Interview: The Crystal Ball of Pop Culture (Volume 1: Best of the First Decade 1969-1979) that came encased in wooden suitcase designed by Karl Largerfeld, with an introduction written by Elton John.

As the title suggests, the magazine was built upon interviews with various cultural luminaries of the day, from the glitzy patrons of Studio 54 to the punk pioneers of CBGB and the Mud Club. It featured Kim Kardashian posing as Jackie Kennedy.

One of the magazine's other hallmarks was Q & Andy, a list of 15 questions devised by Warhol which celeb contributors often filled out. In November 2016, the long-time employee Deborah Blasucci filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Peter Brant and his daughter Kelly Brant, the president of Interview, reported by Page Six in February.
