Rose McGowan Offered $1 Million To Keep Quiet Regarding Harvey Weinstein Allegations

Rose McGowan has shed more light on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, stating that the producer she has accused of rape offered her $1 million to sign a non-disclosure agreement on the eve of a devastating expose published this month by the New York Times.

Director Robert Rodriguez, McGowan's former boyfriend, told Variety last week that he cast the actress in his 2007 film "Grindhouse", released by Weinstein Co., as a rebuke to Weinstein for his alleged assault against McGowan. Though McGowan had previously revealed she was a rape survivor and that her assault was perpetrated by a powerful studio boss, she did not comment in the October 5 story.

"I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art", Ms. McGowan said in an interview.

The "Charmed" actress - who has alleged that the 65-year-old producer raped her - says she was offered the hefty amount by someone close to the filmmaker and whilst she initially upped it to $6 million as a counter offer, she made a decision to retract that offer after all. "Ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting".

A representative for Weinstein has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". In today's Times article, she says she declined the latest financial offer after some initial consideration. During her speech, she said she had been "silenced for twenty years" and had been "slut-shamed, harassed and maligned". She alleges that was the moment when Weinstein proceeded to rape her. McGowan publicly called out actor Ben Affleck for alleged incidents of groping (Affleck later apologized on Twitter to one of the women), and slammed Amazon chief Jeff Bezos for "funding rapists, alleged pedos, and sexual harassers". "We are one massive collective voice, ' McGowan told those assembled, who she referred to as her fellow 'me toos" at one point.

The offer from "someone close to Mr. Weinstein", according to the Times, came just as several women were about to come forward with their claims of sexual misconduct against the Hollywood producer in an exposé also published by the newspaper.

"The triggering has been insane - the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare", she said. It's time to be whole. McGowan's lawyer confirmed the money offer to the Times.
