Rose McGowan is coming unglued.
The actress bravely brought Harvey Weinstein’s sexual crimes to bear, but has since gone off the rails.
She recently canceled her book tour, and now has a difficult legal entanglement that caused her to make an outlandish accusation.
McGowan was charged with felony cocaine possession after she left her wallet behind on an airplane.
The story gets pitiful when McGowan suggested that Harvey Weinstein had emissaries plant the drugs in her wallet that she left behind.
From The Blast:
Rose McGowan not only wants her cocaine charge dismissed, she’s going so far as to suggest that she was being targeted by people working for Harvey Weinstein, and he may be responsible for planting the drugs.
According to a motion filed by McGowan’s attorney in Loudoun County, Virginia, and obtained by The Blast, her attorney argued that authorities have no evidence that McGowan ever possessed the cocaine that was found in her wallet after being left behind on a plane.
The actress has already pled not guilty, but now her attorney says “There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms. McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place,” and suggests that McGowan was targeted by “the underhanded targeting of Ms. McGowan” by Weinstein.
They also argue that drug crimes occurring on an airplane should be handled in federal court, not state, so therefore should be thrown out.
Weinstein has hired ex-Mossad agents in the past to follow women, so there’s a kernel of truth to McGowan’s claims, but this is still a bridge too far.
The fact McGowan left the wallet behind implies some Weinstein spy had illicit drugs on hand just in case she forgot her property on an airplane.
That’s difficult to believe, even for a nefarious predator like Weinstein.
In this instance, Occam’s Razor likely applies: the drugs were hers.
McGowan has cryptically admitted to cocaine use in the past.
From Us Weekly:
Rose McGowan…dished details on her high-profile engagement with rocker Marilyn Manson, which ended in 2001 over “lifestyle differences.”
The actress, 41, dished exactly what the ending factor was to Andy Cohen. “Scarface,” McGowan replied, referencing the 1932 and 1983 crime movies, which featured hard drug use. “Think about it Andy… What was Scarface about?”
Coke,” Cohen muttered. “He did too much blow and you were not down for it?”
“It was me, it was me,” McGowan replied. “Actually, I don’t know. I plead the Fourth [sic]… I’m honest, always, I can’t help it.”
McGowan recently engaged in a shrill verbal battle with an unhinged transgender activist at a book signing. The profanity-laced screaming match led McGowan to cancel her book tour.
While McGowan certainly did the film industry a great service by exposing the sexual deviancy of powerful hypocrites like Weinstein,she may ought to take a step back from the public eye and get her house in order.
