Asia Argento denies sexual relations with actor she paid off

Asia Argento Denies Sexual Assault Allegation and Says Anthony Bourdain Supported Paying Accuser

She said in her statement that she and her then-boyfriend, the late culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, had "decided to deal compassionately with Bennett's demand for help and give it to him". She did not mention Bourdain's suicide or what role, if any, her arrangement with Bennett may have played in his death.

The New York Times broke the story just a few days ago, that Argento paid $380,000 to keep Jimmy Bennett silent about a sexual encounter between the two.

Weinstein's lawyer Ben Brafman has sought to capitalise on the allegations against Argento, accusing her of "duplicity" and "a stunning level of hypocrisy". Per the article, Bennett alleged he made more than $2.7 million in the five years before the alleged incident and that his income had since dropped to below $60,000 a year, which he reportedly attributed to trauma from the alleged encounter.

Additionally, the lead photo of the TMZ story shows Argento and Bennett in bed together.

'Superfood' Coconut Oil Called 'Pure Poison' By Harvard Professor
Speaking about it, she said, among other things that 'coconut oil is pure poison, ' and it is one of the worst foods one can eat. In the USA , coconut oil sales appear to have peaked in 2015 at $229m, according the market research firm Spins .


"Bennett - who was then undergoing severe economic problems and who had previously untaken legal actions against his own family requesting millions in damages - unexpectedly made an exorbitant request of money from me", Argento said in her statement.

"What is perhaps most egregious is the timing, which suggests that at the very same time Argento was working on her own secret settlement for the alleged sexual abuse of a minor, she was positioning herself at the forefront of those condemning Mr Weinstein, despite the fact that her sexual relationship with Mr Weinstein was between two consenting adults which lasted for more than four years", the lawyer said.

According to Argento, Bourdain "insisted the matter be handled privately and this was also what Bennett wanted". Anthony was afraid of the possible negative publicity that such person, whom he considered unsafe, could have brought upon us.

Neither Bennett or Argento have responded to TooFab's request for comment since the story broke.

But the United States consistently said the measure wasn't good enough and demanded additional measures. At the Singapore summit, Kim made a broad and vague commitment to "work toward denuclearization".


'We made a decision to deal compassionately with Bennett's demand for help and give it to him. "Anthony personally undertook to help Bennett economically, upon the condition that we would no longer suffer any further intrusions in our life", the statement said.

She added: 'I have therefore no other choice but to oppose such false allegations...'

In another message she said: "it wasn't raped (sic) but I was frozen".

On top of that, a photo has surfaced allegedly taken right after they did the deed in a Marina del Rey hotel room back in 2013. After receiving backlash for her tweets, she wrote on Tuesday, "Oh for f**k's sake I'm not defending".
