Rose has two sisters, two brothers, and two half-siblings, and she began working as a model during her childhood, appearing in Italian magazines such as "Vogue Bambini." McGowan's family left the Children of God after its founder began advocating for sexual relationships between adults and children, and they moved to Eugene, Oregon, when Rose was 10 years old. She ran away from home at age 13 and was "taken in by the most amazing drag queens" in Portland. After her parents divorced, McGowan lived in Seattle, Washington, with her father and studied at Roosevelt High School and Nova Alternative High School.

Personal Life

In the early '90s, Rose was involved with a man named William who put so much pressure on her to lose weight that she developed an eating disorder. She ended the relationship in early 1993 after she met music executive Brett Cantor. McGowan and Cantor began a romantic relationship, but sadly, Brett was murdered in in July 1993; as of this writing, the murder still has not been solved.

Rose was engaged to musician Marilyn Manson from 1999 to 2001, and she later dated director Robert Rodriguez.

In 2017, cocaine was found in a wallet Rose left at Dulles International Airport, and in 2019, she was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor drug charge.

In October 2017, "The New York Times" reported that Harvey Weinstein had paid McGowan $100,000 in relation to a 1997 sexual assault that took place during the Sundance Film Festival. Later that month, Rose stated that Weinstein had raped her, and she tagged Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a tweet that said "I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn't been proven. I said I was the proof." She also revealed that the show she sold to Amazon was dropped after she complained about Weinstein. In 2017, Weinstein reportedly hired the intelligence agency Black Cube to spy on several of his accusers, including McGowan, as well as journalists were who working on stories about him.

In September 2021, Rose alleged that California governor Gavin Newsom's wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, tried to bribe her to keep quiet about her allegations against Weinstein; Siebel Newsom's spokesperson said that McGowan's claim was a "complete fabrication. In August 2020, McGowan accused director Alexander Payne of statutory rape, saying that he had sex with her when she was 15 and he was in his late twenties.
