Rose McGowan leaves NYC hotel wearing eye-mask

She's had a warrant issued for her arrest in connection with small bags of cocaine left on an airplane in Washington, DC.

But Rose McGowan was out and about in New York City as she left her hotel wearing an eye mask on Wednesday morning.

The actress, 44, wore the patches under her mirrored sunglasses as she stepped out in Manhattan after claiming the warrant was made because she refused to take disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's 'hush money'

The star teamed a long red coat with a thick yellow turtleneck sweater for her outing in the Big Apple.

McGowan paired her bold outerwear with heavy black books, a small black purse and a pair of mirrored aviators, which didn't quite hide her eye patches.

After the arrest warrant was issued earlier this week, the former Charmed star quickly fired off that the warrant was made because she refused to take Weinstein's hush money.

The Grindhouse star has been vocal about the movie mogul's abuses and a New Yorker report alleged that she had been paid a $100,000 settlement to not talk about how the icon raped her.

'Are they trying to silence me?' she asked on Monday. 'There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSES**T', she tweeted.

At the time, the star did not elaborate on why the warrant had been issued or what crime she had been accused of.

But now it's been alleged that McGowan is wanted by the police in Virginia after 'a few small bags of cocaine' discovered inside her belongings on a plane which arrived at Dulles International Airport on January 20, a source close to the investigation told The Blast. 

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department obtained the warrant on February 1, but the case was not a 'high priority.'
