Rose McGowan Reportedly Refused $1 Million in Hush Money From Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein is said to be in rehab but there has still been nothing to prove this claim, and now over 60 women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

But McGowan, speaking through her lawyer, says she declined the money then and didn't intend to hush up about the decades-long pattern of sexual harassment and abuse.

The incident that Weinstein was allegedly anxious about happened in 1997.

In this weekend's Times story, McGowan says she learned over the summer that her settlement did not include a confidentiality clause.

She responded by asking for $6 million, part counteroffer, part slow torture of her former tormentor, she said. But she reportedly instructed her attorney to rescind the offer just before the initial Times story broke. McGowan stated: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art. But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting", said McGowan, who drained her bank account footing her father's healthcare costs.

On Friday, the actress made her first public appearance since her allegations against Weinstein became public, attending the Women's Convention in Detroit.

Ultimately, Rose says she told her lawyer to pull the plug on the counter-offer within a day of the article being published because she says she thought. McGowan elaborated on Twitter after the report was released, alleging Weinstein raped her.

"No more. Name it. Shame it. Call it out".

When she arrived, she said the maître d' told her to meet Weinstein upstairs in his suite, where she remembers passing by two male assistants who she said "wouldn't look me in the eye". The lawyer told her "y$3 ou're an actress, you've done a sex scene, you're done", according to McGowan. I've been maligned. And you know what? When recalling starring in 2007's Grindhouse, which was distributed by Bob Weinstein's Dimension, McGowan said: "I was really lost at that point".

In response to the deleterious accusations, Weinstein and his attorneys-at-law said in a statement he "unequivocally denies" all of the claims outright and he believes they were consensual. It's time to be whole.
