One of the sadder stories to come out of the ten billion sad stories that make up the Harvey Weinstein scandal is the suicide of film executive Jill Messick, 50, this week. Jill was the former Miramax executive who previously managed Rose McGowan’s career in the late-90s. She was Rose’s manager in 1997 when Rose claims Harvey Weinstein raped her at the Sundance Film Festival. Since the floodgates of scandal opened, Rose has gone in on Jill, publicly blaming her for not being supportive of her after the alleged rape and for taking a job with her supposed rapist. Jill’s family said it took a toll on her. Rose posted about her former manager’s death on Instagram yesterday.
In a post depicting the sun coming up over the earth, Rose wished Jill peace and wellness.
Hopefully Rose is able to land the shuttle soon cuz’ her previous statements about Jill are the asteroids pummeling the hull of her spaceship. “The bad man did this to us both” riff is a nice gesture, but that’s not exactly what she was saying about the deceased in interviews and on The View….. But then Rose is a victim herself, and it all goes up the rape chain to that horrible blob man in Arizona who should be more than slapped.
