Jimmy Bennett Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Bennett’s ex-girlfriend, who was 17 at the time that they dated, filed a temporary restraining order against him on July 17, 2015, accusing him of stalking, statutory rape and exploiting her for child pornography. The complaint was dismissed one month later.

Jimmy Bennett Asia Argento

According to documents obtained by The New York Times, a $380,000 settlement was made between Bennett and Asia Argento after Bennett claimed that Argento sexually assaulted him in 2013 in a California hotel room, when he was 17. Bennett stated that after the encounter he started to feel “extremely confused, mortified and disgusted”. Bennett’s lawyer wrote that in the years after the incident, Bennett was so traumatized that his job performance, mental health and income declined.

They first met in 2004 when Bennett played Argento’s son in the film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things when Bennett was seven years old. In November 2017, Bennett notified Argento that he intended to sue, shortly after she went public with rape accusations against Harvey Weinstein. Argento countered that Bennett “sexually attacked” her and that her partner Anthony Bourdain had arranged to pay $380,000 as part of the settlement. Bennett and his lawyer, Gordon Sattro, are working with a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigation regarding the claims of sexual assault against Argento.
