Rose McGowan said Monday that her "heart is broken" over a report that fellow actress and alleged Harvey Weinstein victim Asia Argento agreed to pay a $380,000 settlement to an actor who accused her of sexually assaulting him when he was 17 ― under the age of consent in California.

The two actors have worked together in the 2004 film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things where Asia played Jimmy's mother.

The report also alleges that Asia's former boyfriend, the late Anthony Bourdain, "helped Ms. Argento navigate the matter".

Neither Argento nor her lawyers responded to The Times' requests for comment.

He's now second in the standings, a spot where he's finished in each of the last two seasons. After six seasons driving for Hendrick, Kahne was a free agent heading into this season.

Bennett reportedly asked Argento in November in his intent to sue for $3.5 million in damages for the intentional infliction of emotional distress, lost wages, assault and battery.

Actress Asia Argento is known as one of the most outspoken supporters of the #MeToo movement after accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape.

The notice says the encounter traumatised Bennett and hurt his career, the Times reported.

The notice claims that Bennett arrived at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey to meet Argento in her hotel room on 10 May 2013, with a family member. The Times story claims the documents were sent via encrypted email by an unidentified third party-Bennett declined comment, and it's unclear whether he wanted this story leaked.

Turkey says ready to discuss issues with US without threats
The Russian diplomatic chief made the remarks in Ankara at a joint presser with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu .

Argento, 42, also appeared on McGowan's reality series "Citizen Rose" to speak out about her own sexual assault.

The newspaper obtained documents sent between lawyers for Argento and the accuser that laid out a payment schedule. "We are not going to allow you to get away with it". "You are a powerful and inspiring creator and it is a miserable condition of life that you live among shitty individuals who've preyed on both your strengths and your weaknesses", Goldberg was quoted as saying.

It sounds like at the time the Weinstein allegations were being made public, Argento didn't necessarily know Bennett was uncomfortable with what had happened between them.

During Cannes Film Festival's closing ceremony this year, Argento had accused Weinstein of raping her when she was only 21-years-old. The Hollywood producer has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
