Things are getting pretty bad for #MeToo champion Asia Argento. According to CNN, producers have pulled episodes of Parts Unknown that featured Argento all together. The network confirmed Saturday night that the episodes were pulled “after careful consideration and review of recent news reports indicating that Argento engaged in sexual behavior with an underage minor”.
That minor, uh, is actor Jimmy Bennett. Argento has once confirmed, uh, and then denied the claims — and then referenced a former friend as a “monster” for turning her into authorities.
Argento maintains that she did not engage in a sexual relationship with Bennett, but, their still remains the fact that there is indeed a photograph of a Argento in bed with Bennett. Deadline notes that although she maintains a hard denial, she has admitted in the past that the late Bourdain paid $380,000 to Bennett presumably to silence his accusations.
