The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has changed course and will investigate claims that Asia Argento sexually assaulted Jimmy Bennett in 2013, when he was 17 and she was 37. TMZ alleges that it saw the post-sex photo she paid Bennett $380K for when he accused her of assaulting him. (They don’t publish it, but say they’re both reclining, faintly smiling and at least partially nude in bed). Argento was reportedly unable to get Bennett to sign an NDA because confidentiality agreements are not enforceable when they involve allegations of child sex acts. Harvey Weinstein’s attorney Ben Brafman has lashed out at Argento, calling her a hypocrite for cutting a secret deal with an accuser when she had been such a vocal leader in the #MeToo movement. Argento was one of the first to come forward accusing Weinstein of misconduct.
