Actress Rose McGowan spoke out Monday after the New York Times reported that fellow Harvey Weinstein accuser Asia Argento had paid a settlement to her own sexual harassment accuser.
“I got to know Asia Argento ten months ago,” McGowan wrote on Twitter. “Our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. My heart is broken. I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere.”
Actress-director Argento, a public face of the #MeToo movement, recently paid off a former child actor who said she sexually assaulted him in a Marina del Rey hotel when he was 17, according to the NYT report.
At least 14 people were sent to the hospital after a sudden storm knocked over concert entrance awnings at the site of a Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees concert in Oklahoma on Saturday. All 14 people had been treated and released as of Sunday afternoon, according to the Associated Press.

“All patrons in the area were asked to move and to seek shelter from the storm,” a spokesperson for the casino said in a statement. “However, about 150 patrons who were standing in line for the Backstreet Boys concert did not heed staff’s warnings.”
