Rose McGowan’s Ex-Manager Commits Suicide, Her Family Is Blaming Rose
Rose McGowan’s former manager Jill Messick sadly committed suicide this week. Now, Jill’s family is blaming the suicide over the Weinstein saga, in which Rose seemingly spotlighted Jill as part of Harvey’s coverup.
After Rose allegedly told Jill that Harvey raped her, Jill later went on to work for Harvey at Miramax for several years, helping to produce She’s All That and Frida. Rose didn’t say her name, but she mentioned the incident in her recent appearance on The View.
Jill’s family released a statement: “Seeing her name in headlines again and again, as part of one person’s attempt to gain more attention for her personal cause, along with Harvey’s desperate attempt to vindicate himself, was devastating . . . It broke Jill, who was just starting to get her life back on track. What makes Rose’s inaccurate accusations and insinuations against Jill ironic was that she was the first person who stood up on Rose’s behalf, and alerted her bosses to the horrific experience which Rose suffered.”
Messick’s family added, “Words matter. Someone’s life may depend on it.”
