Rose McGowan breaks silence on former manager's death

Rose Mc Gowan Breaks Silence On Former Manager Jill Messick’s Death

In an Instagram post Saturday, the actress/activist shared her condolences for her ex-manager, who killed herself Wednesday after getting caught up in McGowan's toxic struggle with accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein. According to Messick's family, the email was written in 2017, prior to the first New York Times expose article denouncing Weinstein.

May your family find some measure of solace during this pain, ' the outspoken 44-year-old - who boasts 2.1M followers - wrote.

What do you think about Rose's choice to not mention her late manager and instead show off her own accomplishments? May you find peace on the astral plane. In a lengthy, scathing statement then, Messick's family said the suicide was "collateral damage" in the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and McGowan's role in it.

One Twitter user wrote, 'Is this the first thing that you felt when you heard of your former manager taking her life and her family blaming among others your own contempt against Jill?

Messick was the manager who set up McGowan's now-infamous meeting with Weinstein, at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997, where McGowan alleges Weinstein raped her. "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", the statement said.

Messick's family revealed that she suffered a manic episode five years ago due to her battle with bipolar disorder but was working on her mental health.

Shortly after that Ms Messick took a job as a production executive with Miramax, the company that Mr Weinstein and his brother, Bob, co-founded in 1979.

Weinstein has called McGowan's rape accusation "a bold lie" through his lawyer, claiming the actress told Messick soon afterward that the encounter was consensual. Earlier this month, McGowan spoke out against Messick during appearances on Good Morning America and The View, calling her out for working with Weinstein after her alleged rape.

Messages left with representatives seeking comment from Weinstein and McGowan were not immediately returned.
