Weinstein Accuser Makes $380K Deal With Own Sexual Assault Accuser

One of the first women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault is facing her own sexual assault accuser.  The New York Times says Italian actress and director Asia Argento agreed in October to pay $380,000 to actor Jimmy Bennett.  Bennett claimed Argento assaulted him in a hotel room in California in 2013, when he was 17 years old and she was 37.  He sent a notice of intent to sue her for over $3 million in November, claiming the alleged assault interfered with his ability to work and affected his mental health.  Bennett played Argento's son in 2004 film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.
