Rose McGowan selling house to fund fight against Weinstein
(4 months ago)
Los Angeles, Jan 10 : Actress Rose McGowan says she is having to sell her house as her legal battle against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has cost her bomb.
McGowan spoke about her battle against Weinstein when she took the stage at the Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday, reports variety.com.
Last October, McGowan accused Weinstein of raping her years ago.
Reports said that at the time she had signed a non-disclosure agreement as part of her settlement with the disgraced movie mogul for USD100,000 to not talk about their 1997 hotel room encounter during the Sundance Film Festival.
Clarifying her stance on that, McGowan said: "I never signed an NDA, actually. That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time. I was misinformed by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn't. I thought I remember refusing that. I think NDAs, as we're finding out, can be broken."
"It's really scary, I'm having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters," she said on the her financial condition due to the battle.
