Weinstein offer to McGowan came just days before multiple women accused him of sexual harassment and abuse in a report by the New York Times on October 5. McGowan was reported to have received a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein, but declined to comment for the initial story.
Ms. McGowan who was previously working on a memoir called courageous, and she had in the past about an alleged 1997 hotel room incident with Harvey Weinstein and also hinted at in the public.
McGowan, 44, who was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein at the Sudance Film Festival in 1997, said that someone close to the scandal-hit producer had made the offer in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

When she arrived, she says the maître d' directed her upstairs to his suite, past two male assistants who "wouldn't look me in the eye", and into his room.
