Earlier this month, Rose McGowan attended the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, California, where she told reporters that she was planning to sell her house in order to pay for the legal bills she’s accumulated from “fighting off the monsters.” On Friday, the actress and activist, who has publicly accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, listed her home near Nichols Canyon in the Hollywood Hills for $1.9 million.
McGowan has said she reached a $100,000 settlement in 1997 with Weinstein about the alleged rape—and was then promptly blacklisted from Hollywood. But the legal bills McGowan has referred more recently to aren’t due to a broken NDA from the settlement: “I never signed an NDA, actually,” McGowan said at the TCA. “That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time. [I was misinformed] by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn’t. I thought I remember refusing that. I think NDAs, as we’re finding out, can be broken.”
“It’s really scary,” McGowan said in January about her (unspecified) legal battles. “I’m having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters.”
McGowan’s house, which she purchased in 2011 for $1.39 million, is being sold by Tracy Tutor Maltas from Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles.
The actress’ account of her experience with Weinstein and her work as an activist will appear in both her memoir, Brave, and her new E! docu-series Citizen Rose. The book will be available on January 30, the same day as the show’s premiere.
