Asia Argento Fired From "X Factor Italy" Following Statutory Rape Allegations

When #MeToo advocates face their own fall from grace

When #MeToo advocates face their own fall from grace

The first seven episodes of X Factor Italy, in which auditions were held and the final 12 competitors for the show were selected, can not be re-shot without recasting the season overall and therefore those episodes will still feature Argento. However, she will still appear in the first seven pre-recorded episodes that show Argento and her fellow judges select the show's contestants through auditions, because otherwise they would've had to audition thousands of people all over again.

Following the allegations against Argento, Sky Italia and FremantleMedia issued a statement saying that if the accusations were true, they "would have no choice but to take note of it and put an end to the collaboration".

Rose now claims she had seen text messages from Asia admitting that she slept with Jimmy and therefore encouraged the recipient, her friend Rain Dove, to report Asia to police. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has said it is investigating whether a sex-crime was committed during an alleged encounter between Argento and Bennett in a Marina del Rey hotel room in 2013. She said the payment was made by her late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain, the TV chef.

Last week it emerged that Argento had paid nearly £300,000 to a young actor after he accused her of sexually assaulting him as a teenager.

McGowan released a statement on Monday in which she indicated that although she had forged a close bond with Argento due to their alleged shared experiences of assault by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, she has now ended the friendship.

"I was underage when the event took place and I tried to seek justice in a way that made sense to me at the time because I was not ready to deal with the ramifications of my story becoming public", Bennett, 22, continued. She went on to add that she agreed for the $3,80,000 settlement to avoid negative publicity.




On the 21st of August, Argento denied all of the charges, and said she "strongly denies and opposes the content of the New York Times" article.

"It's sad to lose a friend connection, but what's even more sad is what happened to Jimmy Bennett", McGowan said. The legal age of consent in California is 18.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Anthony, 54, says there has been...

'It is the type of thing I fight against alongside so many.

Asia Argento first met a young actor in 2004 during the filming of "Chickens", and in 2013, according to the man, celebrity sexually sought his. I've never claimed to be ideal.
