Weinstein accuser Asia Argento settles sex assault complaint

Asia Argento reportedly paid off an actor who accused her of sexual assault

She allegedly provided Bennett with alcohol, kissed him, performed oral sex, and then climbed on top of him and had intercourse with him.

Later that day she shared a close-up of their faces on Instagram with the caption, "Happiest day of my life reunion with @jimmymbennett xox", and added "jimmy is going to be in my next movie and that is a fact, dig that jack".

Actress Asia Argento is known as one of the most outspoken supporters of the #MeToo movement after accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape. This happened in California where the age of consent is 18 years old.

Argento eventually agreed to a payment of $380,000 to Bennett. As he was driven home, according to his claim, he began to feel "extremely confused, mortified, and disgusted".

Jet Airways, meanwhile, will have additional flights from Thiruvananthapuram for passengers holding confirmed tickets from Kochi. A body blow has been dealt to the scenic state, with its infrastructure, standing crops and tourism facilities severely hit.

Bennett's legal action was launched a month after Argento's accusations against Weinstein were made public, the Times said.

The newspaper said it had tried repeatedly without success to get a comment on the matter from Argento and her representatives. In court documents, a selfie with the two lying in bed was included.

Bennett - who played Asia's son in the 2004 film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things - alleged in the filing that the incident was so traumatic that it "hindered his work and income and threatened his mental health".

Bennett claimed the "sexual battery" affected his work and mental health, his attorney wrote previous year in a notice of intent to sue that was sent to Argento's lawyer, per The Times.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 60 women since The New York Times, and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed, Pulitzer-prize winning articles in October.

A letter to Argento from Goldberg said that the money was to help Bennett.

Bennett's lawyer filed a notice of intent demanding $3.5 million in damages in November - one month after Argento, the longtime girlfriend of the late Anthony Bourdain, and 12 other women publicly accused Weinstein of rape, according to The Times.

But for Bennett, the 2013 hotel-room encounter was a betrayal that precipitated a spiral of emotional problems, according to the documents.
