As The New York Times previously reported on August 19, 2018, Argento allegedly paid her former The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things co-star Jimmy Bennett $380,000 as part of a settlement in late 2017, not long after Argento had accused movie producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.

Reportedly, Asia convinced her then-boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain, to pay Jimmy a sum of $380,000, in exchange for his silence.

So far, Argento has not commented on her removal from "X Factor Italy".

Argento also allegedly told Dove that she had been receiving "unsolicited" nude photos of Bennett since he was 12 years old, but had not taken action to stop Bennett from sending more. Anyone can be be better - I hope you can be, too.

McGowan stressed out she used to be no longer "affiliated with this incident" and that she had no longer been complicit in keeping the alleged assault a secret.

"Asia was a person who understood my trauma in a way that many others didn't", McGowan stated. We were able to talk through them together and champion each other's voices. In an instant, ' she said.

But, McGowan stresses, the nature of their relationship changed when McGowan's partner, Rain Dove, showed her incriminating texts between themselves and Argento, where Argento reveals that she had in fact slept with actor Jimmy Bennett in 2013 when he was 17 years old, and she was 37.

Last week, actress Asia Argento was accused of sexually assaulting a former co-star when he was underage, and subsequently paying him off to stay silent.

In the lengthy press release, McGowan insists she "wasted no time" in supporting Rain's decision to take the information to police, even though she knew it would be a knock to the #MeToo campaign.

"I wasted no time". It wasn't hard to say or support. As a fellow victim of Harvey Weinstein, Argento stood with McGowan for months as leaders of the #MeToo Movement, though McGowan recently said it broke her heart to hear the news about her. In the text messages that they published last week, Argento wrote: "I had sex with him it felt weird".

In the statement, McGowan also called on Argento to come clean about her alleged behavior, writing, "Asia you were my friend". Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said Monday her agency has not received any text messages.

On Wednesday, Dove wrote a tweet seemingly aimed at Argento, stating, "Friend, family, acquaintance it doesn't matter when it comes to justice - you do not get special treatment".
