Producer 'broken by Weinstein scandal' takes her own life

Messick, 50, was McGowan's manager in 1997, the year McGowan told The New York Times in an article published in October that Weinstein raped her. McGowan told the Times she informed her manager about the attack shortly after it occurred.

When McGowan was previously asked if she told anyone about her alleged assault, specifically her manager, McGowan said: "Yes, but she got a job with him for seven years right afterwards" referencing the job Messick took at Miramax as vice president for development. Weinstein denied the allegations. "The Movement" just lost one of its own.Jill Messick was a mother of two children, a loving wife and partner, a dear friend to many and a smart entertainment executive.

Messick's name recently appeared in the media after Weinstein's attorney released an email they believe defends the disgraced producer. Our hearts are with the Messick family during this incredibly hard time.

A Hollywood producer has killed herself after she became "collateral damage" in the Harvey Weinstein scandal, her family have said. The former Charmed star took to Instagram to share a photo of herself holding the Impact Award she was honored with at the Digital-Life-Design Conference in January. She committed suicide on Wednesday. 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.

Messick's family rejected the suggestion that she was not supportive to McGowan, saying she was "the first person who stood up on Rose's behalf".

"She was very clear about the fact that getting into that hot tub was something that she did consensually and that in hindsight it was also something that she regretted having done'". Rose never once used the word rape in that conversation.

It read: " She [Merrick] immediately went to her bosses.to recount Rose's story and to insist that they immediately address the situation.

"Many women have come out with allegations against Harvey Weinstein, including Rose McGowan, who has repeatedly spoken with the press, striking out against not only her alleged attacker but a great many others", the statement continued. "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?".

"She put her arms around me", McGowan told the paper. Not a word for a woman whose life is over?
