Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Offered Her $1 Million for Her Silence

Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Offered Her $1 Million for Her Silence

Weinstein is said to be in rehab but there has still been nothing to prove this claim, and now over 60 women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

Ms. McGowan who was previously working on a memoir called courageous, and she had in the past about an alleged 1997 hotel room incident with Harvey Weinstein and also hinted at in the public.

The hush-money offer was made by someone close to the creepy filmmaker in exchange for McGowan - one of Weinstein's most vocal accusers - signing a nondisclosure agreement, the New York Times reported. However, that settlement did not include a confidentiality clause, which McGowan says she wasn't aware of until previous year. After a brief business meeting, McGowan says the tide turned and she was assaulted. McGowan stated: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art".

At first, McGowan thought about taking the money but decided that it was incredibly immoral and it "would make (her) feel disgusting".

In the wake of the shocking revelations about Harvey Weinstein and his abuse of power against women who worked with him over the years, one more outspoken voice against him has been actress Rose McGowan. In other words, the star's lawyer is alleging that Weinstein wanted to pay her to keep quiet about his inappropriate actions, which McGowan has called rape on Twitter, before the Times opened the floodgates with its expose.

When she arrived, she said the maître d' told her to meet Weinstein upstairs in his suite, where she remembers passing by two male assistants who she said "wouldn't look me in the eye".

In the following months, however, McGowan says she was given the impression that filing a criminal charge was hopeless, recalling being told, "You're an actress, you've done a sex scene, you're done".

"I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time".

After the settlement was reached, Messick accepted a job working at Miramax, which was then run by Weinstein.

In response to the lengthy accusations made against Weinstein, a spokesperson for the movie mogul previously said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".
