Alleged serial sexual harasser and assaulter Harvey Weinstein reportedly had a list of almost 100 people of interest for his team of private investigators to target in the event that any of them threatened to expose his misconduct.
It appears the list's intention was to keep tabs on potential accusers in a concerted effort to silence them - and eventual accusers like Rose McGowan and Laura Madden DO show up on the list.
Actor Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of rape, was among those on the list.
The list was apparently drafted months before The New York Times' eventual exposé in October brought Weinstein down for good. While the United Kingdom newspaper did not release the full list, it did include actresses Laura Madden, Sophie Dix, Rose McGowan, Katherine Kendall, and Annabella Sciorra - all of whom have accused the Hollywood superstar of varied levels of sexual misconduct.
Another name is Zelda Perkins, a London-based production assistant for Miramax - Weinstein's film company - who left in 1998 after enduring years of sexual harassment by the producer, she said.
More details on the list itself HERE. They include people working in acquisitions, marketing and distribution, and human resources as well as actors, publicists and producers.
More than 50 names, including those of McGowan, Madden and actress Sophie Dix, are coloured red to indicate that they should be prioritised by investigators, the report stated.
Individuals would be targeted by investigators who would glean information on who had information about allegations, and then feedback was relayed back to Weinstein and his lawyers.
So far, nearly 60 women have come forward with allegations of rape, harassment and inappropriate behavior against Weinstein, prompting police investigations by the NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and the Beverly Hills police.
