Rose McGowan distances from Asia Argento

Bennet once played Argento's son in the movie she directed, called: "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things" in 2004, when he was seven years old.

McGowan, one of the vocal advocates of the #MeToo movement, released a lengthy statement in which she said that her partner, model Rain Dove, told her in text messages, Argento had said that she had been receiving unsolicited nude photos of accuser Jimmy Bennett since the time he was 12 and had not informed the authorities or told him to stop sending the photos.

McGowan said Rain Dove planned to give the texts to the police, which McGowan said she had encouraged.

"I responded with 'You have to. You must." I wasted no time. "It wasn't hard to say or support", McGowan wrote.

A spokeswoman for Rain Dove confirmed in an email that everything McGowan said in her statement was factual.

"Nearly forty eight hours later the texts had been within the click", McGowan added.

Gillum scored a surprise victory in Tuesday's Democratic primary for one the United States' most competitive races for governor. Gillum said, " DeSantis can do the bidding of big business and big lobbyists and Donald Trump and his divisive rhetoric".

"We should remind everyone that Weinstein paid former Mossad agents to obtain information", she said. Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here ever again.

"They talked about that they'd been texting with Asia and that Asia had printed that she had certainly slept with Jimmy Bennet", McGowan wrote. Days later, Argento "strongly denied" that she had "any sexual relationship with Bennett", instead countering that as a friend she paid Bennett the money - approx $517K in Aus terms - as the actor was "undergoing severe economic problems". Bourdain killed himself in June.

"I was underage when the event took place and I tried to seek justice in a way that made sense to me at the time because I was not ready to deal with the ramifications of my story becoming public", Bennett, 22, continued. McGowan also acknowledged that she had anxious that the #MeToo movement "was about to be in jeopardy".

McGowan then thanked those who have checked on her to see if she is OK, stated she was doing well and said she was "sad to lose a friend connection".

But her latest statement reflects a sharper, more considered response. "It's shaming and humiliating to stand up and say that man abused, raped, and humiliated me and seriously damaged my career for many years". As a victim I was justified in fiery feelings.

Rose admits she needs to evolve when it comes to her reaction to cases like Asia's - and perhaps even Weinstein - saying, "However as allies to the victim and voyeurs of an event we should find a better way to balance support of the victim with due process for the accused".

Reps for Argento and Bennett did no longer at the moment reply to PEOPLE's count on for commentary.

In a personal note to Asia, Rose concluded: 'Asia you were my friend. "You've spent and risked a lot to stand with the MeToo movement".

'I really hope you find your way through this process to rehabilitation and betterment. Anyone can be better - I hope you can be, too. Do the right thing. "Let justice preserve its course", she persevered.

But Argento has defenders.

Lysette Anthony, 54, who past year became the first Brit to accuse the disgraced Hollywood mogul of rape, said she had contemplated suicide over the "shame" and that her son had been bullied at school as a result.

Harvey Weinstein was accused of rape by Lysette Anthony and Italian actress Asia Argento, who has since been accused of sexual assault.
