Asia Argento Blasts Rose McGowan Over Nude Photo Deleted Tweet by Rain Dove

Asia Argento had words for Rose McGowan. McGowan's partner Rain Dove released a statement clarifying the nature of a previous exchange Dove had with Argento regarding nude pictures of Jimmy Bennett. Argento is currently facing sexual misconduct allegations from Bennett, who claimed the actor assaulted him when he was 17 and she was 37.

Dove wrote a mistake was made while interpreting texts from Argento, in which the androgynous model initially believed Argento said she had received unsolicited nude photos from Bennett since he was 12 years old. In fact, Bennett was 17 when the photos were sent. Argento reposted Dove's now-deleted tweet and lashed out at McGowan, who said Argento received explicit images of Bennett while he was underage.

"It is a shame that @rosemcgowan is not prepared to accept when she is wrong. @raindovemodel accepted she was wrong, but her tweet has been deleted. Rose's statement continues to make false claims," Argento wrote on Friday.

McGowan issued a lengthy statement explaining how she became aware of the sexual assault claims against Argento in August. When she referred to Dove, she used gender-neutral pronouns.

"I received a phone call and series of messages from the being I've been dating- Rain Dove," McGowan wrote in her statement. "They said that they had been texting with Asia and that Asia had revealed that she had indeed slept with Jimmy Bennet. Rain also shared that Asia had stated that she'd been receiving unsolicited nudes of Jimmy since he had been 12."

McGowan wrote Argento never discouraged Bennett from sending the nude photos—although Argento didn't appear to be aware of Bennett's age in a series of text messages between the two, in which Argento seemingly acknowledged their sexual encounter. Argento, 42, didn't ask Bennett, 22, his age in the nearly five-year-old texts either.

McGowan has yet to respond to Argento's tweet, and unlike Dove, she hasn't made any effort to clarify Bennett's age during the timeframe in which the nude photos were sent.
