Producer 'broken by Weinstein scandal' takes her own life

"May your family find some measure of solace during this pain", McGowan wrote.

Rose McGowan took to social media for the first time following her former manager Jill Messick's shocking suicide.

Messick represented McGowan at the time she was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein and the longtime Hollywood exec felt "victimized" by the allegations put forth by McGowan, and later Weinstein, according to her family. "The bad man did this to us both", McGowan wrote, referencing Weinstein. May you find peace on the astral plane. 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.

The late woman's family has released a statement in which they claimed that, aside from her struggling with depression and bipolar disorder, Rose's crusade against the disgraced Harvey Weinstein had taken a huge toll on her as well!

Messick's family addressed the insinuation that she was complicit in any crime head-on in their statement.

'Today she pats herself on the back for "what [she's] done for all women" and says 0 about Jill.

The City of Westerville first announced on Saturday afternoon that one officer had been killed while on duty. The suspect, who has not been identified, was taken into custody and transported to OSU Wexner Medical.

"She opted not to add to the feeding frenzy, allowing her name and her reputation to be sullied despite having done nothing wrong", the statement said.

Messick had been a junior manager assigned to look after McGowan when they attended the Sundance Film Festival in 1997 - the setting of the alleged rape. "Following the meeting, Rose told Jill what had happened - that she made the decision to remove her clothes and get in the hot tub with him - a mistake which Rose immediately regretted".

"The ensuing arrangements between Rose and Harvey were then negotiated, completely without Jill's knowledge. In the face of inappropriate behavior, Jill handled the situation appropriately". "At that time, all Jill knew was that the matter was settled and that Rose continued making films with the Weinsteins".

Rose is at the helm of her own cis white feminism- selfish, self important, and she has publicly tormented victims.

The family of the former Miramax and Paramount Studios exec released a statement about her February 7 suicide, saying that she battled depression and a bipolar disorder.
