You can see Rain Dove’s statement in the video clip below.
In the texts, originally published by TMZ, Argento appears to admit to having sex with actor Jimmy Bennett when he was underage.
The texts have been damaging to Argento, who has come under increasing pressure since The New York Times reported that she had paid Bennett $380,000 in an apparent effort to silence his allegations that she had sexually assaulted him. Until recently Argento, who has said Harvey Weinstein raped her in 1997, was seen as a leading voice in the #MeToo movement.
