Former Miramax Executive And Rose McGowan Manager Jill Messick Dead At 50

  • Sad Followers were quick to note that McGowan's first interaction on social media failed to recognize the recent suicide of her former manager who represented the starlet during the time Rose alleged Harvey Weinstein raped her

After being slammed by a lot of people for ignoring the tragic death of her former manager and instead, posting about her accomplishments, Rose McGowan finally took to social media today to address Jill Messick's suicide on February 7. Thank you for honoring me for what I do for all women. Earlier this month, McGowan spoke out against Messick during appearances on Good Morning America and The View, calling her out for working with Weinstein after her alleged rape. "#RoseArmy #bebrave" she captioned the image.

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". "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?".

The revelation - and being further caught up in the scandal when Weinstein released an email exchange - had a damaging effect on Messick's state of mind, her family said. But they added that she also had been distraught from the recent spotlight on her after details emerged on alleged sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein. "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 statement, which was given to our sister site Deadline, commented on how the fearless author has lashed out against more people than just her alleged abuser.


"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 for her". Our hearts are with the Messick family during this incredibly hard time.

Tough: Ashley Paulman continued, 'Rose is at the helm of her own cis white feminism- selfish, self important, and she has publicly tormented victims. "One of them was Jill". Not a word for a woman whose life is over? Wow, you are really something...so cold & devoid of human feelings. She was found dead by suicide.
