Jill Messick Family Calls out Rose McGowan, Harvey Weinstein in Blistering Statement

Jill Messick died by suicide Wednesday amid a slew of media attention her family says made her collateral damage in Rose Mc Gowan and Harvey Weinstein’s war of words Rose McGowan's Former Manager Commits Suicide: Read Her Family's Statement

Messick's suicide comes after McGowan, 44, has claimed that disgraced movie mogul Weinstein, 65, raped her in a hot tub in 1997, when Messick was her manager.

According to The Associated Press, "Messick's family says McGowan reported the (1997) incident to her without calling it rape, but that Messick, realizing something inappropriate if not illegal had happened, reported it to her senior bosses months before she went to work under Weinstein at Miramax".

The revelation - and being further dragged into the headlines as part of an email exchange released by Weinstein - had a damaging effect on Messick's state of mind, her family said in a statement.

The statement says that Messick was "victimized" by the culture of instant, unlimited information and "became collateral damage" of the movement. Nevertheless, in a statement, the family strongly suggests that finding herself in the middle of the high-profile Weinstein-McGowan story drove her to take her own life.

Rose McGowan's former manager Jill Messick tragically took her own life.

"At that time, all Jill knew was that the matter was settled and that Rose continued making films with the Weinsteins", Messick's family said. The "Charmed" alum said that she informed Messick and Ben Affleck about Weinstein's misconduct, but both of them denied being told by the actress.

Messick's name emerged in the news again recently as McGowan promoted her upcoming memoir, which includes stories involving Messick.

"Jill believed in the Movement".

Messick's name became entrenched in the Weinstein scandal when McGowan told the New York Times in October that Messick arranged the meeting with Weinstein during which she was allegedly raped. "I felt like my pain was so small" in comparison to the others, she said of her story (via Deadline).

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of Jill Messick", Hayek said of Messick, who was an executive producer on Hayek's 2002 Miramax film, "Frida". However, Jill knew Harvey had done something wrong.

Although Jill died during controversial times, there are many in Tinseltown who are mourning her untimely passing. They said it "offered the truth based on what she remembers Rose telling her about the Sundance account", but that Weinstein had made it public without Messick's consent.

She was Rose McGowan's former manager. They told Jill that they would handle the situation.

"While journalists serve an important role in exposing predatory behavior, we are seeing irresponsible choices and an addiction to sensationalism, which leads to inconsistent storytelling". Most individuals would be horrified to have their name spotlighted in a major global news story-let alone their photograph.

Tina Fey, who worked with Messick on "Mean Girls" responded to the news telling THR, "This is very sad news and my heart goes out to her family. We can not forget that the media is a fearsome tool, which can not be used indiscriminately or even inadvertently to create further victims", the statement says. Jill was instrumental in helping Mean Girls get to the screen. "We take for granted the angels that come into our lives".
