Asia Argento Threatens Rose McGowan With A Lawsuit Over ‘Horrendous Lies’

Argento has demanded that her fellow #MeToo fighter retract her statement claiming that the Italian actress admitted to having sex with Jimmy Bennett to McGowan and McGowan's partner. "If you fail to address this libel I will have no option other than to take immediate legal action", Argento tweeted.

The feud between two #MeToo icons has escalated, as Asia Argento released a Twitter statement demanding Rose McGowan retract her "horrendous lies" about sexual misconduct allegations leveled against Argento.

On Aug. 27, McGowan sent a lengthy email statement to media, outlining that her friendship with Argento was over and telling her former pal to own up to what she did. Do the right thing.

Rose McGowan and Asia Argento on the women's march in Rome. Be honest. Be fair.

Argento staunchly denied the allegation she slept with the teen and said her late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain had coughed up the cash fearing negative press. Let justice stay its course.

As of this writing, McGowan has not publicly replied to Argento's threat of legal action.

She spoke of how she'd bonded with Asia over Harvey Weinstein, adding: 'Asia was a person who understood my trauma in a way that many others didn't.

Dove passed the alleged texts onto California police, who are investigating as at 17, Bennett was a minor at the time of the alleged sexual encounter in a hotel in Marina del Rey, California in May 2013.

"As revealed in the text messages published by TMZ, Asia stated, "The horny kid jumped me ..." But he has been sharply critical of Argento's conflicting statements and explanations thus far, calling them "offensive", "self-serving" and "slanderous".

McGowan said that Argento had told her and her partner, model Rain Dove, that she was being extorted for a large sum of money every month.

Dove, who is gender-nonbinary and uses the pronoun they, said they called the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and shared the information they had gathered concerning an alleged relationship between Argento and Bennett.

Bennett's lawyer, Gordon Sattro, says his client is "cooperating" with investigators.
