Rose McGowan Responds To Former Manager's Death

Rose McGowan Responds To Former Manager's Death

Actress Rose McGowan says Weinstein raped her in 1997.

According to Messick's family, the former manager stood up for McGowan when the actress told her about her alleged rape in 1997.

They praised her as a "survivor" who had battled with depression and bipolar disorder for many years.

The 50-year-old had been under intense scrutiny in recent months as the allegations against Weinstein spilled over into a hunt for the "enablers" who had turned a blind eye to his alleged crimes, which he continues to strongly deny.

McGowan's message today made no mention of the Messick family's accusations, and placed the cause of the damage directly on (the unnamed) Weinstein. What follows is the Messick family statement in full.

A scathing statement provided by her family's attorney criticized disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, his vocal accuser McGowan and members of the media for their coverage of the #MeToo movement.

The arrested activists are Jugajyoti Swain, Rashmi Ranjan Muduli, Bibhuti Bhusan Prusti and Biswa Ranjan Badjena. OAS Officers' Association also condemned the attack and demanded immediate action against the troublemakers.

McGowan caught criticism for posting a photo of herself holding and Impact Award from January's Digital-Life-Design Conference instead of addressing Messick's suicide. She supported every woman finally coming forward to share their dark truths and expose those who had committed previously unspeakable deeds. "She never chose to be a public figure, that choice was taken away from her".

"She was very clear about the fact that getting into that hot tub was something that she did consensually and that in hindsight it was also something that she regretted having done'".

Messick's family addressed the insinuation that she was complicit in any crime head-on in their statement.

"We must take a moment to consider the ramifications and consequences of what we say and what we do", the family's statement said, concluding: "Words matter".

"Seeing her name in headlines again and again, as part of one person's attempt to gain more attention for her personal cause, along with Harvey's desperate attempt to vindicate himself, was devastating for her", the statement read. Jill had fought to put her life back together. Not a word for a woman whose life is over?
