Asia Argento Admits Cheating On Anthony Bourdain In Tearful New Interview

Asia also told DailyMailTV - in her first interview since Bourdain's death - her anger has now been replaced by an emotional hole that can not be filled by anything.

"Now, the anger kept me alive because otherwise this desperation has no end, there's no end".

Argento and Bourdain had dated for just over one year. They met in 2016 while working together on his award-winning CNN docu-series Parts Unknown.

"And then I was angry, yes, for abandoning my kids, but now it's been replaced, just by this loss, this hole, that can not be replaced by anything". However, now, the anger phase is over, and it feels like there is something missing from her life, a hole she can't fill.

As for the conspiracy theory about her cheating on Bourdain?

Actor Jimmy Bennett attends Relativity Media's "21 and Over" premiere at Westwood Village Theatre on February 21, 2013 in Westwood, California.

Last week, Argento said on Twitter she was suing McGowan for the "horrendous lies" the "Charmed" actress made in her August 27 statement following the bombshell New York Times report on the Bennett sex assault case.

But in July, strong winds pummelled the hut and the rope snapped, and Aldi floated deeper into the Pacific Ocean. With no motor and no paddle, the teen drifted thousands of miles away from the Indonesian coast towards Guam.

After Bennett detailed his experience with Argento, the host said: 'It's hard to believe a woman can rape a man, an act of sex that is complete cannot be rape surely, ' he said. The legal age of consent in California is 18.

Argento was one of the #MeToo movement's loudest voices and one of the first women to publicly accuse disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

Argento has denied the accusation.

Jimmy Bennett appeared on an Italian television program where he was ridiculed by the host in front of a live audience who appeared skeptical of the actor's claims that Asia Argento raped him. "I am beyond devastated", Argento tweeted. "I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere". Jimmy said Asia "start (ed) the whole thing", and she pushed him on to the bed, and "took my trousers off".

It's not clear if Bennett has already taped the European TV chat, but he has also filed an official complaint with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, although authorities have yet to open a criminal investigation into his claims.
