Actress Rose McGowan says Weinstein raped her in 1997.

Rose McGowan offered her condolences to the family of her former manager, Jill Messick, who committed suicide this week.

"[Jill] became collateral damage in an already horrific story", the Messick family's statement read in part. She was also a survivor, privately battling depression, which had been her nemesis for years.Today she did not survive.

Rose was one of the many women who made rape allegations against Weinstein. "The Movement" just lost one of its own.Jill Messick was a mother of two children, a loving wife and partner, a dear friend to many and a smart entertainment executive.

In January, Weinstein called McGowan's accusation "a bold lie" through his lawyer, claiming that the actress described the incident as a consensual sexual encounter to Messick soon afterward. Our hearts are with the Messick family during this incredibly hard time.

Does White House have a moral compass?
According to the White House , his position did not require a security clearance and his background check was ongoing . The fact that these two men were welcomed to stay in a White House run by Donald Trump should be surprising to no one.


Messick's family blamed Weinstein and "sensationalistic" media for her death in a statement published by The Hollywood Reporter.

"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'".

McGowan, in her social media post, did not address the family's comments directly. "Rose never once used the word rape in that conversation", the note said. One Twitter user asked her if being honored was her initial thought after news broke of Jill's upsetting death. At that time, all Jill knew was that the matter was settled and that Rose continued making films with the Weinsteins. According to Messick's family, the email was written in 2017, prior to the first New York Times expose article denouncing Weinstein. That post was deleted after many people questioned how she could say nothing about a woman who helped launch her career.

"Seeing her name in headlines again and again ... along with Harvey's desperate attempt to vindicate himself, was devastating for her", the statement said. Jill had fought to put her life back together.
