Charmed actress Rose McGowan has just filed another lawsuit against the Harvey Weinstein and his former attorneys Lisa Bloom and David Boies, as well as the spy and intelligence firm, Black Cube Strategies.
McGowan alleges that Weinstein and his attorneys conspired to suppress her claims that Weinstein raped her in 1997. According to McGowan, the assault took place at the Sundance Film Festival.
“This case is about a diabolical and illegal effort by one of America’s most powerful men and his representatives to silence sexual assault victims,” the complaint, obtained by Fox states. “And it is about the courageous women and journalists who persisted to reveal the truth.”
Weinstein’s civil attorney Phyllis Kupferstein released a statement to the news outlet, refuting her allegations.
“Once and for all, Rose McGowan will be shown to be what she is: a publicity seeker looking for money," read the statement. "From the moment she sought a $6 million payout in return for not making these baseless allegations, which we rejected at the time, we knew that she was waiting for an opportune time such as this to begin her suit. We will demonstrate that this case has no legal merit.”
McGowan was one of several women who have accused the Hollywood executive of sexual misconduct.
