Argento said she continued to have a relationship with Weinstein because she was afraid of angering him.

McGowan and Argento have been among the most prominent women to come forward with allegations of rape against now-disgraced film titan Harvey Weinstein, who is facing criminal charges in NY unrelated to McGowan or Argento. "I have never had any sexual relationship with Bennett", it goes on.

Actor/director Asia Argento attends the 2018 Women In The World Summit at Lincoln Center in New York City on April 12, 2018.

However, Rosanna Arquette, who also accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, questioned The Times' report and cautioned people to wait for Argento's response.

According to The Times, Argento settled the suit and paid Bennett $380,000.

"I strongly deny and oppose the contents of the New York Times article dated 20 August 2018, as circulated also in national and worldwide news", Argento said in a statement given to reporter Yashar Ali.

The actors starred as mother and son in the 2004 film "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things". "Anthony insisted the matter be handled privately and this was also what Bennett wanted", she said. Argento said her then boyfriend, CNN star Bourdain, made a decision to pay Bennett.

The NY Times piece made explicit mention of photos taken by Bennett, which showed himself and Argento topless in bed together. Anthony was afraid of the possible negative publicity that such person, who he considered unsafe, could have brought upon us.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is now investigating the allegation of sex with a minor.

He says his client was not surprised by the New York Times article about Arento's alleged payoff of the actor.

Italian actress Asia Argento arrived, in May 2009, on the red carpet for the screening of "Vengeance" during the 62nd global film festival in Cannes, France. They reportedly stayed in contact in the ensuing years and agreed to meet years later for a reunion.

Ben Brafman, a lawyer for Mr Weinstein, said the development revealed "a stunning level of hypocrisy by Asia Argento". He has been a staunch supporter of Argento following her allegations against Weinstein. In the notice, Bennett explained that seeing Argento "present herself as a victim of sexual assault was too much to bear... and called up memories of their hotel reunion".
