Asia Argento, Harvey Weinstein's accuser, paid her own accuser off!

The shocking news hit everyone following the #MeToo movement, right in the face! Asia Argento (42) who was one of the most important first accusers in Harvey Weinstein's case, had paid a victim of hers off- a then 17-year-old boy, Jimmy Bennett (22 now), whom she played with in the movie, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. The assault happened back in 2013 in the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Marina del Rey, California, where the age of consent is 18! Asia had paid $200,000 to Jimmy in order to settle.

An email written to Asia by her lawyer has also been revealed and it read like this: "Ultimately, you decided against the non-disclosure [NDA] language because you felt it was inconsistent with the public messages you’ve conveyed about the societal perils of non-disclosure agreements."

"Bennett could theoretically tell people his claims against you. However, under this agreement, he cannot sue you for them."

"Nor can he post the photo of the two of you. At the very he is not permitted to bother you for more money, disparage you or sue -- so long as you comply with your obligations in the agreement."

According to the documents, she gave him alcohol, kiss him, pushed him onto the bed and started performing on him then climbed on him to have intercourse with him!

Bennett’s attorney Sattro has released a statement saying: "At this time, our client, Jimmy Bennett, does not wish to comment on the documents or the events discussed in the New York Times article yesterday evening."

"While we realize that the news cycle demands an immediate response, many times, people need more than a few minutes or hours to respond. We are asking that you give our client some time and space."
