Lawyers representing Rose McGowan are arguing that Harvey Weinstein was involved in setting her up over an arrest for possession of cocaine last year.
In an extract from her new memoir, actress Rose McGowan has offered details of her alleged sexual assault at the hands of producer Harvey Weinstein.
She revealed the situation to reporters and TV critics while speaking about her new TV series Citizen Rose, though she did not refer to Weinstein by name.
The activist has slammed celebrities before for their attempts to stand up to sexism and sexual assault.
Harvey Weinstein had a team of lawyers and private investigators who worked to suppress and discredit the allegations of his sexual accusers and journalists, it's alleged.
'The New York Times' reported last week that Weinstein reached a settlement with McGowan in 1997 'after an episode in a hotel room.'
Hilarie Burton has said that she was 'groped' by Ben Affleck 'when she was a kid', while working as a host on the MTV show 'Total Request Live'.
Hollywood has reacted to the explosive exposé by the New York Times claiming that producer Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed women in the movie business.
