Actress and activist Rose McGowan is being forced to sell her $1.9 million Hollywood Hills home to pay legal fees for her ongoing battle against Harvey Weinstein.
The Citizen Rose star first mentioned putting her home up for sale earlier this month, but it is now officially on the market. Star of Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles, Tracy Tutor Maltas, is selling the property. The listing describes McGowan's home as mid-century modern with a 'groovy vibe'. The former Charmed actress bought the home just seven years ago in 2011, years before news of Weinstein's widespread abuse broke.

According to People, McGowan first spoke of her plight when she appeared on the panel of the Television Critics Association. "It's really scary," she said. "I'm having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters." Although she didn't specify what exactly what she was fighting, it's thought that Harvey Weinstein is suing her for the breakage of a nondisclosure agreement she signed in 1997. At the time, McGowan claimed the now disgraced mogul raped her. The pair reached a private settlement for $100,000 on the basis that she would never publicly discuss it. When news of Weinstein's behavior fully erupted in October 2017, McGowan spoke out about her experience. However, according to the 44-year-old Scream actress, the paperwork was never signed.
“I never signed an NDA, actually," she told the media. "That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time,” she said. “[I was misinformed] by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn’t. I thought I remember refusing that. I think NDAs, as we’re finding out, can be broken.”
Since news of Weinstein's behavior surfaced, dozens of actresses and actors came forward to share their horrific stories of abuse at the hands of several prominent Hollywood stars. James Franco, Kevin Spacey, and Aziz Ansari are among those that have been subject to accusations.
