Brant Publications, the magazine’s current owner, purchased
the magazine from the estate of Andy Warhol in 1989. It re-launched in 1990, and then again in 2008, when Sandra Brant sold her 50% share of the company to her ex-husband Peter Brant, and left the magazine to be with her lover, Ingrid Sischy, who had served as editor-in-chief of the publication for 18 years. Since then, Interview
has been embroiled in financial problems. In May, Fabien Baron, its former editorial director, sued Interview
for $600,000, while former associate publisher Jane Katz filed a suit last year claiming the company owes her $230,000 in unpaid wages. Interview
has not yet released an official statement on its closure.
