Asia Argento Withdraws from Dutch Music Festival Amid Assault Claim

The ousting of powerful and unsafe sexual predators, and the calling out of problematic behaviour that has been normalised by years of whitewashing, is what 2017 will be remembered for in the future.

Sorvino, alongside Asia Argento, came out as a victim of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein in the explosive New Yorker report in October of past year.

New York Times reported that Bennet was severely shaken after the incident.

An actress who is one of Harvey Weinstein's leading accusers has denounced a former child actor's claim that she sexually assaulted him as an extortion attempt. Argento, then 37, allegedly performed oral sex and they had intercourse after.

When asked how she didn't know his age since they had previously worked together, the actress purportedly wrote that the age of consent is 15 in France and her native Italy (it is 14), as opposed to 18 in California.

Here's how Battlefield 5 looks with Nvidia RTX effects
Pricing for 2070 starts at $499 ($599 for the Founders Edition), making this card much more affordable than its big brothers. Normally, ray-tracing would take a serious amount of graphical power to run; we're talking Nvidia DXG supercomputer level.

The paper said the story was based on an encrypted email the reporter received from an unknown source; it contained documents about the settlement between Argento and Bennett and her lawyer over his demand for compensation, and included a selfie of the two in bed. HuffPost was not able to verify the authenticity of the photo or texts.

The statement ends with the insinuation Argento may seek her own legal action against Bennett.

She said her relationship with Bennett was one of "friendship only" but that ended after her involvement in the Weinstein revelations, when Bennett "unexpectedly made an exorbitant request of money from me".

According to Argento, Bourdain "insisted the matter be handled privately and this was also what Bennett wanted". We chose to deal compassionately with Bennett's demand for help and to 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.

Trump defends Manafort: "It’s a very sad day for our country"
But you know what? Unlike CNN's request, Ellis granted this, meaning the jury will not return to their deliberations until Monday. Manafort was forced to step down from the Trump campaign when questions emerged about his work for Yanukovych.

The actress says she is being maligned even though she is innocent and truthful. In the text messages she openly admits to having sex with him, but claims he was the aggressor. "I didn't know he was a minor until the shakedown letter", it says. She believes her rejection led to being "iced" out of future work.

Weinstein's lawyer commented Monday on the claims against Argento, saying it should cast doubt on the allegations she has made against the disgraced producer.

"Indeed, accountability is at the very heart of the #MeToo movement", Judd said on Twitter just after midnight this morning.
