New York [USA], October 30 (ANI): In a recent revelation, Rose McGowan has said that she was offered a significant sum of money to keep mum over the Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault allegation, just days before the news came out.

According to a report in The New York Times, McGowan told that someone close to Weinstein offered her one-million-dollar in exchange, for signing a nondisclosure agreement.

The 'Charmed' actress had reached a 100,000-dollar settlement with Weinstein, after a 1997 hotel room encounter, but she learned this summer that the agreement never included a confidentiality clause.

"I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art," she told the publication.

The former actress responded by asking for six-million-dollar, part counteroffer, part slow torture of her former tormentor, saying, "I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three."

"But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting," she continued. (ANI)
