Weinstein offered Rose McGowan $1 million in exchange for her silence

FORMER Hollywood actor Rose McGowan says she was recently offered $US1 million for her silence over her Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault allegation.

Though McGowan reached a settlement with Weinstein for $100,000 in 1997, she realized over the summer that the contract had not included a confidentiality clause.

McGowan has been Weinstein's most vocal accuser after she took to Twitter two weeks ago to allege that he was her rapist.

McGowan - who accused Harvey of rape earlier in the month - said she considered the offer but wanted $6 million instead. McGowan stated: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art". "In any case, I resembled - ew, net, you're nauseating, I don't need your cash, that would influence me to feel sickening".

Dozens of women, including Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale, have come forward accusing Weinstein of sexual abuse since the initial allegations became public.

Within a day of the Times publishing the story that would eventually lead the mogul to seek treatment, McGowan, 44, directed her lawyer to pull the offer.

Drug sniffing dogs had apparently reacted to Heaton's belongings, which led to the search and subsequent trouble. The entertainment trade newspaper said Heaton admitted to law enforcement officials he had consumed the drug.

Representatives for McGowan and Weinstein did not immediately return requests for comment. On her way out, she said, he pointed out the hotel room's bath tub.

"The triggering has been insane - the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare", she said. "Suffice it to say a door opened and my life changed". I've been maligned. And you know what?

Declining to share any further details of the incident, McGowan said she went straight to a press event where she fought back tears and told Ben Affleck and her then manager, Jill Messick, what had happened. The lawyer told her "y$3 ou're an actress, you've done a sex scene, you're done", according to McGowan.

In response to the deleterious accusations, Weinstein and his attorneys-at-law said in a statement he "unequivocally denies" all of the claims outright and he believes they were consensual.

When the 2007 film Grindhouse came out - which was distributed by Bob Weinstein - McGowan said, "I was really lost at that point".

"After that assault, a light dimmed", actress Maddie Corman, who knew McGowan at the time, told the paper. It's time to be whole.
