So-called “victim” Jimmy Bennett is a creep… of the worst kind.
This opportunist sleezeball is nothing but a low-class blackmailer.
That Italian actress Asia Argento took him to bed is plausible, but extorting money from her after their interlude is low, extremely low. And if I am not mistaken, extortion is a federal crime.
While a sexual encounter is usually a pleasurable happening, it can also be problematic. A venomous serpent could be hiding in the mattress grass… Beware of virginal looking partners… They have the annoying tendency to spill the beans.
For any human being though, lovemaking is usually an alluring and fulfilling experience. But above all, this encounter has to be consensual. If it is not, it is a criminal act.
While a man sexually assaulting a woman is a fairly common occurrence, a woman “molesting” a man is rather unusual.
If it ever happened, I doubt very much that Jimmy Bennett desperately resisted Asia Argento’s advances. Any man (especially an immature teenager) would feel grateful that a woman allowed him to share a moment of intimacy with her.
So I don’t believe for a minute that little Jimmy strongly objected to being “abused” AND is “trying to seek justice.” What justice?
“I did not initially speak out about my story because I chose to handle it in private with the person who wronged me.
My trauma resurfaced as she came out as a victim herself. I have not made a public statement in the past days and hours because I was ashamed and afraid to be part of the public narrative. 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.”
Do you believe this baloney? I certainly don’t. I tend to think that recently accused men seeking vengeance have orchestrated this charade against Asia.
Anybody engaging in any kind of extortion should be prosecuted, regardless of age and status.
People usually take sides in controversial cases . In this one, I firmly stand in the camp of Asia Argento. Lovemaking is not a crime, extortion definitely is.
