50-year-old Hollywood producer Jill Messick apparently took her life on Wednesday fighting depression, according to her family. Her family has blamed Harvey Weinstein and Rose McGowan for her suicide. According to them, Messick had become “collateral damage” in the movement aimed at revealing the monstrous side of powerful men, including Harvey Weinstein.
