Asia Argento and 17-Year-Old Boy in Bed in Sexual Encounter https://t.co/y6EeKOdPT7— TMZ (@TMZ) August 22, 2018
• Asia Argento has denied allegations that she had sex with a then 17-year-old Jimmy Bennett while claiming boyfriend Anthony Bourdain (who passed away earlier this year) paid Bennett off.
• But a photo of Asia and an underage Jimmy in bed has surfaced that seems to suggest otherwise.
• This is one of four photos.
• Various screenshots from texts between Argento and a friend also leaked.
• The texts are very recent and detail Argento and a friend going back and forth in regards to the backlash from the New York Times story that ran just last Sunday.
• In the text messages she claims he came onto her, that she wasn’t aware he was a minor, and that the legal age on consent in France and Italy is 15. She also mentions that when she was 17 she was with a man who was 33 years old “for years.”
• She also admits to sleeping with Bennett in the text exchange.
• Asia also tells her friend: “If I lose my job I will move to Africa or the Amazon forest. I want to be among the 90% of the world that doesn’t give a fuck about this shit. Not the conniving, sick 10% of the entitled westerners.”
