Rose McGowan's Former Manager Commits Suicide: Read Her Family's Statement

Studio executive and producer Jill Messick has died from suicide on Wednesday (February 7), her family tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The 50-year-old exec was also Rose McGowan‘s back in 1997, which is when the 44-year-old actress claims Harvey Weinstein raped her.

Jill‘s family tells THR that she suffered from years of depression and was “victimized” when she found herself in the middle of the Weinstein-McGowan allegations before saying Jill “became collateral damage in an already horrific story.”

“Over the past few months, many women have come out with allegations against Harvey Weinstein, including Rose McGowan, who has repeatedly spoken with the press, striking out against not only her alleged attacker, but a great many others,” Jill‘s family says. “One of them was Jill, who chose to remain silent in the face of Rose’s slanderous statements against her for fear of undermining the many individuals who came forward in truth. She opted not to add to the feeding frenzy, allowing her name and her reputation to be sullied despite having done nothing wrong. She never chose to be a public figure, that choice was taken away from her.”

Over the past couple of months, Rose claimed that Harvey raped her back in 1997 while they were at the Sundance Film Festival that year. Jill‘s name recently made headlines when Harvey’s attorney, Ben Brafman, released an email written by Jill in defense of the disgraced film producer.

“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,” her family continues. “It broke Jill, who was just starting to get her life back on track. What makes Rose’s inaccurate accusations and insinuations against Jill ironic was that she was the first person who stood up on Rose’s behalf, and alerted her bosses to the horrific experience which Rose suffered.”

Rose McGowan Calls 'Charmed' Co-Star Alyssa Milano a 'Lie'

Rose McGowan poses with her book “Brave” at a 92Y conversation with Ronan Farrow on Thursday (February 1) in New York City.

The night before, the 45-year-old actress appeared on Nightline and shared her thoughts on her former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano.

When asked if she’s proud of Alyssa for her work with the Me Too movement, Rose said, “I don’t like her” and added, “’cause I think she’s a lie.”

“Do you think I don’t know these people? I’m not looking at this from the outside. I have a lot of experience. I know she’s married to a CAA agent [Dave Bugliari],” Rose said. “I do the math. Who’s behind Time’s Up? CAA. Where do they meet? CAA. Who needs good PR? CAA. Who are part of the pimp problem? CAA.”

When the reporter said, “these are very powerful people you’re talking about,” Rose replied, “They are. So am I.”

Alyssa provided a statement in which she voiced support for Rose.

“I am and always have been completely supportive of Rose and admire her bravery in speaking about her experiences,” she said. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and perspectives, and I cannot speak to anyone else’s motivations. My goal throughout the past few months with both #MeToo and the Time’s Up movement has been to use my platform to give others a voice so we can all work together to stamp out sexual harassment and sexual assault.”

Rose McGowan Tells Stephen Colbert 'I Am the Architect' of Harvey Weinstein's Downfall

Rose McGowan sat down for an interview with Stephen Colbert on last night’s (January 31) episode of The Late Show and discussed everything from Harvey Weinstein, her book “Brave,” and new E! docuseries, Citizen Rose.

“Yes, I’ve had handcuffs on me, but no one else in this situation. Isn’t that grand?,” the 44-year-old actress remarked before the topic turned to the downfall of Weinstein, whom she claimed sexually assaulted her in a hot tub in 1997.

“Mine was a year ago, I was the architect,” Rose told Stephen. “But I didn’t talk… I wanted them to have a voice.”

That same evening, Rose made her way to the Barnes & Noble Union Square to sign copies of her memoir “Brave” in New York City.

Rose McGowan Slams Meryl Streep for Wearing Black to Golden Globes 2018, Calls it a 'PR Machine Stunt'

Rose McGowan is coming for Meryl Streep once again.

During the premiere of her new docuseries Citizen Rose on Tuesday (January 30), the 44-year-old actress once again slammed the 68-year-old Oscar-winning actress for standing by Harvey Weinstein – who she claims raped her back in 1997.

“It was hard as f— to turn on the Academy Awards and see Meryl f—ing Streep calling him God,” Rose said to fellow Weinstein accuser, Italian actress Asia Argento, referring to Meryl‘s 2012 acceptance speech.

Back in December, Rose said that Meryl and the other actresses wearing black to the 2018 Golden Globes felt like a “stunt.” Meryl responded to Rose saying that she “didn’t know” anything about the sexual abuse going on.

“Wearing all black to the Golden Globes just felt really stuntish to me, felt really craven,” Rose says during the show. “I wanted to tell the truth about why the Golden Globes are there, what is means. The thing about the black dresses is, I’m sure a lot of these women are well meaning, but it’s a PR machine stunt overall. Because the people behind it are the agents that sent us women – not me, but others – into the lions’ den to be eaten and consumed. It’s not just dresses, it’s a lie.”

Citizen Rose airs on E! on Tuesday nights.

Harvey Weinstein Releases Ben Affleck's Email in Response to Rose McGowan Claims

Harvey Weinstein is publicly responding to claims made against him by Rose McGowan and he has released an email that Ben Affleck sent him this past summer to defend himself.

Rose says that Weinstein raped her and she talks about being assaulted by the disgraced producer at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997 in her new book “Brave.” She has also said that she told Affleck about the assault, but the actor says in the email that he didn’t know about it.

“As a general matter, Harvey Weinstein and his attorneys have refrained from publicly criticizing any of the women who have made allegations of sexual assault against Mr. Weinstein despite a wealth of evidence that would demonstrate the patent falsity of these claims,” the producer’s lawyer Ben Brafman said in a statement. “Watching the ‘performance’ by Rose McGowan as she looks to promote her new book however, has made it impossible to remain quiet as she tries to smear Mr. Weinstein with a bold lie that is denied not only by Mr. Weinstein himself, but by at least two witnesses, including Ms. McGowan’s own Manager at the time who Ms. McGowan claims to have confided in the day after the alleged assault and an A-list actor Ben Affleck who Ms. McGowan claims to have also told about her encounter with Mr. Weinstein shortly after the incident she now describes as ‘rape,’ but which in 1997 she described to her Manager as a ‘consensual’ act of sex.”
