The New York Times reports that Italian actress Asia Argento recently settled a lawsuit filed against her by a young actor and musician who said she sexually assaulted him when he was 17.
Argento is one of the most prominent activists of the #MeToo movement.
The Times says that Argento, 42, settled the lawsuit filed by Jimmy Bennett, who is now 22, for $380,000 shortly after she said last October that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein raped her.
Bennett says in the lawsuit that he had sex with Argento in a California hotel in 2013. The age of consent in California is 18.
The Times says it received court documents that have been authenticated by three people familiar with the case.
