Famous actress Rose McGowan had a very serious allegation to share about Harvey Weinstein. The popular actress accused Weinstein of rape. Rose becomes this way one of the few women who have raised rape allegations against the Hollywood producer. Dozens of women have accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, but only few shared the very serious allegations of rape.
Rose revealed what had happened to her in relation to Weinstein in some Twitter posts. The star claimed that she actually complained to Amazon Studio chief Roy Price, but he ignored her. Things are not looking good for Roy Price, either, as he was placed on leave of absence after a woman brought sexual harassment allegations against him, as well.
“Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co,” Amazon stated. Isa Hackett claimed that Price made sexual related proposals to her in a taxi and at a corporate dinner. The events happened in 2015, she said. Isa is a producer of one of Amazon’s shows. She said she immediately complained to Amazon’s executives about what happened. The company started an investigation, bringing an outside investigator to check the validity of the claims.
Isa said that she was never informed on what the investigation found. However, she was never again put in the situation of working with Price. She said he never attended events involving her shows.
“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” Rose wrote in her post addressing Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon. “Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.” So, the actress criticised Amazon for doing business with Weinstein, despite knowing about his behavior.
Of course, Weinstein has denied the sexual assaults, but the New York Police Department and the London Met Police have started investigations on the allegations. A lawyer for the Hollywood producer said that any sexual contacts Weinstein had were consensual.
