Rose McGowan, one of the first brave women to bring forward a case against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein – who has been accused of rape and sexual misconduct – is selling her house in order to pay for the legal fees in a fight against her “monsters”.
Dozens of brave women have now followed McGowan’s lead, including the likes of Asia Argento, Emma de Caunes and Lysette Anthony are among the women who have accused Weinstein of the serious sexual assault.
Determined to bring justice for the accused crimes, McGowan has explained the financial difficulties she’s facing: “It’s really scary, I’m having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters,” said according to Entertainment Weekly before confirming that she has NOT signed a non-disclosure agreement. “I never signed an NDA, actually. That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time,” she added.
“(I was misinformed) by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn’t. I thought I remember refusing that. I think NDAs, as we’re finding out, can be broken,” she added.
Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
