Rose McGowan Distances Herself From Asia Argento After Assault Allegation

Argento accuser Bennett speaks out over sex assault claims

Argento also allegedly told Dove that she had been receiving "unsolicited" nude photos of Jimmy since he was 12 years old, but had not taken action to stop Bennett from sending more.

Argento will reportedly still appear on seven episodes of the show that were already shot for the initial auditions.

Last week, when the allegations against Argento first surfaced, "X Factor" issued a statement insisting that while they hired the actress based on her credentials, rather than her work in the Me Too movement, they would fire her were the accusations proved to be true.

On that date, according to a notice of intent to sue document sent to Argento's then-lawyer in November, Argento met the actor at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Marina del Rey, Calif.

Last October - shortly after the alleged settlement of $380,000 (£297,000) was made to Jimmy - Argento accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s via a New Yorker article by Ronan Farrow.

In the statement of more than 1,000 words, McGowan took pains to both explain why she had grown close to Argento as well as suggest that she had more recently distanced herself after allegations emerged that Argento sexually assaulted Bennett when he was 17.

Rose McGowan has called upon Asia Argento, who is now facing sexual abuse allegations, to come clean, saying "be the person you wish Harvey (Weinstein) could have been".

Argento has denied assaulting Bennett, saying the actor wanted to extract money from her after her name came up in the Weinstein scandal. McGowan's initial response to Bennett's accusations, published in the New York Times on August 19, was to tweet her shock and hope that people would be "gentle" with Argento.

"Its sad to lose a friend connection, but whats even more sad is what happened to Jimmy Bennet", she says. The age of consent in California is 18. Argento has yet to comment on her firing.

Rain Dove, the model that Rose is dating, was exchanging messages with Asia in which it's alleged the Italian actress admitted to sleeping with Jimmy.

Harvey Weinstein's victims are being shamed in a "huge backlash", one of his British accusers has said, amid a row over a sexual assault claim against a leader of the Me Too movement. "They are inappropriate", she said in a statement.

On Wednesday, Bennet said he "tried to seek justice in a way that made sense to me at the time", on the grounds that he was "not ready to deal with the ramifications of my story becoming public".
