May your family find some measure of solace during this pain, ' the outspoken 44-year-old - who boasts 2.1M followers - wrote.

Messick's family says her death came after mounting pressure and misinformation when she got caught up in McGowan's allegations against Weinstein (his lawyer defended him by citing a Messick email that claimed McGowan and Weinstein's encounter was consensual). But they added that she also had been distraught from the recent spotlight on her after details emerged on alleged sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein.

'[Rose] has repeatedly spoken with the press, striking out against not only her alleged attacker, but a great many others, ' her family told THR in a statement Thursday. The bad man did this to both of us.

Rose McGowan's ex-manager Jill Messick committed suicide Wednesday in the wake of Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Their statement also said Messick "chose to remain silent in the face of Rose's slanderous statements against her for fear of undermining the many individuals who came forward in truth", but "now that Jill can no longer speak for herself, it's time to set the record straight". "May you find serenity with the stars".

He landed in Los Angeles at the trade deadline when Texas dealt him for two minor leaguers and outfielder Willie Calhoun. The report states that the Cubs handed Darvish a six-year deal worth up to $150 million, with $126 million guaranteed.

Rose's tribute comes quickly after she was criticized by many for the fact that she initially kept quiet about the tragedy and instead, took to social media to show off about an award she received and about her accomplishments.

"[Jill] became collateral damage in an already horrific story", the Messick family's statement read in part. Months later, Messick took a job with Weinstein at Miramax.

After-hours messages left with representatives seeking comment from Weinstein and McGowan were not immediately returned.
