Interview Magazine, formed in 1969, is best known for its intimate interviews with many artists, actors, singers and pop culture stalwarts but its now ceasing following years of alleged financial strain.
But it was also a key part of Warhol's art-business practice, with editors directed to place fashionable wives and girlfriends of wealthy businessmen on Interview's covers; their partners could then be induced to purchase the screen print of the women from Warhol's studio. He also left the publication in April, two months after an explosive Boston Globe report accused him of acting very inappropriately with three female models. Staff of the publication, which has filed for chapter seven bankruptcy, were informed of the decision in a meeting today.

Interview, the celebrity interview magazine co-founded in 1969 by gay pop-artist Andy Warhol, officially shut down today after facing two unresolved lawsuits from former executives who claimed the magazine stiffed them for vast sums. Sources say Templer was owed up to $280,000 in backpay, which prompted his departure. Dan Ragone, who was Interview's president for six years, also sued in 2016 for allegedly unpaid wages of about $170,000 and that case is still working its way through the courts.
Austen Tosone, until now an assistant editor at Interview, wrote on Twitter that her six months at the magazine was "certainly a insane ride". Over the years, it featured conversational interviews with celebrities like Liza Minelli and Grace Jones and other features, including Warhol's trademark "15 Questions" interview. In 2016, President Dan Ragone sued the magazine for unpaid wages of $170,000, and former employee Deborah Blasucci said she was sacked from her role as a senior executive for "making too much money".
