Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Misconduct Accusers (So Far)

"[Rose] never told me nor did I ever infer that she was attacked by anyone," Affleck email to Weinstein reads.

Rose McGowan hurled more expletives at Harvey Weinstein, this time enraged by the disgraced Hollywood mogul for releasing emails in an attempt to discredit the rape allegations against him that she details in her new memoir "Brave."

"F-ck you you f-cking douche bag loser from hell," she tweeted Tuesday evening. "You will burn. You will be an empty suit coffin. You go fall off the planet you f-ck. #RoseArmy BREATHE FIRE let motherfucker [burn]."

Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, defended his client by releasing two emails -- one from Ben Affleck and another from McGowan's former manager, Jill Messick, who went on to become an executive at The Weinstein Company. In the emails obtained by Deadline on Tuesday, Affleck and Messick contradict the actress' claims.

"[Rose] never told me nor did I ever infer that she was attacked by anyone," Affleck wrote in an email dated July 26, 2017. "Any accounts to the contrary are false. I have no knowledge about anything Rose did or claimed to have done."

Back in November, Affleck appeared on the "Today" show, where he told Savannah Guthrie, "I believe Rose, I support her, I really like and admire her tenacity and wish her the best."

The email from McGowan's former manager reportedly read, "When we met up the following day, she hesitantly told me of her own accord that during the meeting that night before she had gotten into a hot tub with Mr. Weinstein. She was very clear about the fact that getting into that hot tub was something that she did consensually and that in hindsight it was also something that she regretted having done." It's not clear when this email was sent.

McGowan graphically recounted her alleged 1997 non-consensual sexual experience with the producer at the Sundance Film Festival in both her memoir, "Brave," and her E! docu-series, "Citizen Rose," which premiered Tuesday night. McGowan said her "monster" ripped her clothes off, pushed her into a Jacuzzi and performed oral sex on her while he masturbated.

The actress said she immediately told Affleck, her "Phantoms" co-star at the time, who allegedly said, "Goddamnit! I told him to stop doing that!" She also told Messick at the time of the alleged rape, writing her former manager "counseled [her] to see it as something that could help [her] career in the long run."

To date, 84 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

Read the full statement from Weinstein's lawyer below:

As a general matter, Harvey Weinstein and his attorneys have refrained from publicly criticizing any of the women who have made allegations of sexual assault against Mr. Weinstein despite a wealth of evidence that would demonstrate the patent falsity of these claims. Watching the “performance” by Rose McGowan as she looks to promote her new book however, has made it impossible to remain quiet as she tries to smear Mr. Weinstein with a bold lie that is denied not only by Mr. Weinstein himself, but by at least two witnesses, including Ms. McGowan’s own Manager at the time who Ms. McGowan claims to have confided in the day after the alleged assault and an A-list actor Ben Affleck who Ms. McGowan claims to have also told about her encounter with Mr. Weinstein shortly after the incident she now describes as “rape”, but which in 1997 she described to her Manager as a “consensual” act of sex.

In an email to Mr. Weinstein regarding the encounter, Jill Messick says the following, “When we met up the following day, she hesitantly told me of her own accord that during the meeting that night before she had gotten into a hot tub with Mr. Weinstein. She was very clear about the fact that getting into that hot tub was something that she did consensually and that in hindsight it was also something that she regretted having done."

Ben Affleck expressed the following in an email to Mr. Weinstein, "She never told me nor did I ever infer that she was attacked by anyone. Any accounts to the contrary are false. I have no knowledge about anything Rose did or claimed to have done."
