Asia Argento returned the blow to Rose McGowan for the explosive statement of the actress Bewitched about the accusations against her pioneer partner of the #MeToo movement.
In a statement last month, McGowan, 44, said he recently discovered alleged "nuke" photos that Jimmy Bennett sent to Argento since he was 12. Bennett says he was sexually assaulted by Argento in California when he was 17 and Argento, 37.
Argento answered on Friday in a tweet: "It's a shame that @rosemcgowan is not ready to accept when it's wrong.
"Rose's statement continues to make false claims," he wrote.
Argento added that Rain Dove, a non-conformist gender partner of McGowan, 27, "accepted that she was wrong" in a tweet that has since been removed.
Asia Argento has returned the blow to Rose McGowan's statement detailing what she supposedly knew about the scandal of sexual abuse of Argento with a minor child
In a tweet on Friday, Argento said McGowan can not accept that he is wrong about the "false" statements he made last month.
On Wednesday, Argento and Rain Dove, McGowan's partner, were involved in a dispute on Twitter.
In the statement last month, McGowan, who is distancing himself from his feminist friend, said: "I received a phone call and a series of messages from the being I've been dating: Rain Dove." They said they had been texting with Asia and that Asia had revealed that she had indeed slept with Jimmy Bennett.
& # 39; Rain also shared that Asia had stated that she had been receiving unsolicited nudity from Jimmy since she was 12. Asia mentioned in these texts that she did not take any action on those images.
McGowan, Dove and Argento had spent time together in Berlin in July after the tragic suicide of Argento's fiancé and famous chef, Anthony Bourdain, who reportedly paid $ 380,000 to his former childhood castmate.
McGowan said about the alleged explicit images of the child: "Do not inform the authorities, parents or block Jimmy's social networks. Not even a simple message" Do not send me these images. They are inappropriate. "
"Some other details were also revealed that I am not free to mention in this statement since the investigators do their job."
The Enchanted star, 44, formed a close bond with the actress of the Land of the Dead, 42 – both accusers of Harvey Weinstein – during the past year in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Dove criticized Argento and his lawyer for recent statements, including his recent claim that the actress was sexually assaulted by Jimmy Bennett in 2014 (previous couple at that 2014 meeting in California)
Jimmy Bennett says he was sexually assaulted by Argento in California when he was 17 and Argento, 37
Argento attacked the model Rain Dove Dubilewski on Wednesday after they criticized Argento's lawyer for refusing to acknowledge that he had a sexual relationship with actor Jimmy Bennett when the child was underage.
I will help you 100% throughout this process with the resources you have that can help the healing needed, but you must be honest. I can not help a dishonest being, "wrote Dove.
Argento responded by returning the fire: "Very funny coming from a sickly pathological liar like you, who made money selling text messages selected to portray me for something I am not".
His return to social networks came at the same time that X Factor Italia formally announced that Argento would appear only in the first half of the new season of the show, and will be replaced by the live episodes when they go on the air this year.
The Italian star, 42, also used her return to Twitter to attack Dove for the information they conveyed about the death of Anthony Bourdain.
Shots fired: "Very funny coming from a sickly pathological liar like you, who made me money selling selected text messages," Argento tweeted to Rain Dove on Wednesday
It was the texts of Dove with Argento that confirmed that the actress had sex with Bennett in a hotel room in California in 2014, more than a decade after the actress worked with the child at age 6 in his film adaptation of The Heart of JT Leroy. It is deceptive about all things.
Argento, who was one of the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, initially lied about her meeting with Bennett after a New York Times report that revealed that the young man had received a payment of $ 380,000 from the partner of the actress Anthony Bourdain when he threatened to file a lawsuit of $ 7.5 million.
Just hours after denying having sex with Bennett, TMZ published a text exchange between Dove and Argento, confirming most of the Times report.
Argento and her lawyer now claim that she was the victim, and Bennett sexually abused her that day at the hotel.
No Binary: Dove (left in March, just in 2016) started dating McGowan in February after offering to work with her after the public's very public discussion with a transgender woman at a book signing
RAIN PIGEON IN ASIA ARGENTO UNDER THE SEXUAL SCANDAL
"Before I begin, I would like to point out to everyone that I am only making a statement to clarify the details in order to avoid further tensions or damage from rumors or accusations against / against innocent parties." It is important not to exaggerate or glorify the actions of any individual who present evidence in a case of sexual assault because it is the basics that one should do.
"I can confirm that the text messages are between Asia Argento and I. When I told the police, I remained in social silence because I did not want to be part of the narrative or distract myself from the path to justice. The situation is short and dry: a person admitted to a sexual commitment with a minor (according to the age established by California) that is an illegal act that could qualify as a legal violation. continued without informing / blocking the account / rejection / action in writing When the individual made it clear that they were not going to be honest about their commitment, I delivered materials that can contribute to an honest investigation.
& # 39; All victims deserve justice. Justice can rarely exist without honesty. In a case of sexual assault, it is important to support and believe the victim, while allowing due process. I believe that all beings accused of a crime have the right to prove their innocence. For many victims of sexual assault, your justice may never appear in court due to lack of evidence or the passage of time. It is heartbreaking and cruel. However, I still fully believe in the concession and balance of both values. Support and create, allow due process. That is why when Asia Argento requested assistance during this case declaring total innocence, I systematically took them to the list of things they would need to clear their name. Proof that they did not pay this person, proof that they did not approve any payment if they had occurred, proof that they had indeed been harassed and rejected all sexual advances by sexual action or verbally, proof that they had not committed themselves sexually through an alibi, and some more.
"Occasionally, in the past people approached me knowing they were guilty, admitted guilt immediately, and my space in their lives has guided them through the process of rehabilitation with the community and changing their negative actions to proactive. They can return to being productive members of the community while justice also prevails.The key to the agreement to help is that they intend to do what is necessary to rectify a situation.Unfortunately, Asia did not have that intention.This is a person who represents a certain ideal and that has asked all those accused of sexual assault to be honest about their experiences in order to do justice to the victims, however, when the NYT statement came out, in which Asia denied any sexual commitment, It was then that it became clear that they were not going to follow their own ethics, I received the original statement from Asia before they went out into the world, they admitted their sexual commitment. In him they despised the victim, they minimized the integrity of the reporter Kim Severson using the power of culpability of the opinion of his deceased former partner Anthony Bourdain, and robbed all parties of his truth. It was painful to read. I had hoped that this narrative would change after our conversation, but unfortunately the piece went directly to the press.
"Before bringing this information to the police, I spoke with Rose McGowan, since she is the person who introduced me to Asia." I was certainly a little nervous because I knew that Asia was an important person in Rose's life. the knowledge that he was going to go to the police, Rose immediately agreed that it was the right action, not begging or negotiating, without anger, just in fact, I know that this is a painful loss of community in Rose's life and I am proud of Your dedication to the truth It is tempting for many to cover their loved ones in difficult times, but when a victim is involved on the other side we should think about them True justice has no prejudices.
"I would also like to address the allegations that Jimmy Bennet extorted Asia Argento simply saying, keep both actions separate, they are two different accusations and all the victims of a crime deserve justice, all the culprits must be honest. case between HW and Asia Argento is separate from the case of Jimmy Bennet and that Asia deserves the same respect in that case that Jimmy should receive in this case.Your choice to lie to the NYT does not mean that they lie about HW. be separate and impartial I believe that most beings have the power to change Asia has contributed a strong voice to the #MeToo movement and has encouraged many in their nation and around the world to present their truths. Although public opinion may exist over time, through honesty, dialogue and rehabilitation, this person can become a strong advocate to justice once more. Especially unique as a person who is experiencing both sides of the coin.
"We can not allow this unique case to crumble the power and momentum of a movement that has saved so many.The fact that a person is a celebrity or more visible does not make them THE VOICE or a more IMPORTANT voice than any other being. That has been part of #MeToo, they are all equal and their struggles are equally valid, we must remember that Until then, let the truth shine its light so we can see the way to a solution Keep the light on with patience.
