Actress Rose McGowan accused Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, on Thursday of trying to bribe her into silence regarding allegations against convicted sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.
McGowan, who was among the first women to publicly accuse Weinstein of sexual crimes, told BlazeTV host Dave Rubin on Thursday that Newsom reached out to her six months before the publication of a New York Times exposé on Weinstein purportedly seeking to bury the story.
The Times article, which McGowan was involved in setting up, would precipitate the downfall of the disgraced former Hollywood mogul, who is now imprisoned for rape.
“She called me and she set up a meeting with me to meet her somewhere in Brentwood [California],” McGowan told Rubin. “And I actually went, and I got like very creeped out and I saw her sitting where I was supposed to meet her. And I looked at her and I turned around and went back into my car and drove away.”
