Rose files lawsuit against Weinstein
Los Angeles: Actor-activist Rose McGowan has filed a lawsuit against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and his lawyers over alleged attempts of silencing her.
McGowan was one of the first women to speak up about Weinstein's alleged history of sexual harassment and abuse incidents in the year 2017. In her lawsuit, which also targets attorneys David Boies and Lisa Bloom and the private intelligence firm Black Cube, the actor said the producer tried to discredit her after she accused him of rape.
"This case is about a diabolical and illegal effort by one of America's most powerful men and his representatives to silence sexual assault victims," the documents filed in Los Angeles federal court stated.
