Actress Rose McGowan dropped ‘bombshell’ news on California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, two days before the state votes whether or not to unseat the governor.
Standing alongside Republican California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder at a press conference on Sunday, McGowan, a leading figure of the #MeToo movement, accused Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, of trying to silence her sexual assault allegations against jailed movie producer and convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.
Six months before McGowan came forward with sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein in 2017, McGowan alleged Jennifer cold-called her to relay a message from Weinstein’s attorney, David Boies.
“So this woman, I don’t know, some blonde lady name with the last name of the Newsom, cold-calls me, and was like, David Boies wants to know what it would take to make you happy,'” McGowan told Dave Rubin on the Rubin Report.
Larry Elder slammed the mainstream media’s lack of coverage of McGowan’s “bombshell” story.
A spokesperson for Jennifer Siebel Newsom released a statement calling McGowan’s claim a “complete fabrication,” according to Business Insider.
Elder told Fox LA that McGowan “has produced emails that were sent to her from Gavin Newsom’s wife.”
At the press conference, McGowan announced that she is no longer a Democrat “because everyone who has harassed, and stolen from me in my time in Hollywood has been a Democrat.”
Endorsing Elder’s bid for governor, McGowan said that while she does not agree with Elder on every issue, that he is a “better candidate” and a “better man” than Gavin Newsom.
