Newly released documents, first obtained by the New York Times, reveal that she settled the claim out of court for $380,000. His lawyer Gordon K. Sattro reportedly told the outlet, "In the coming days Jimmy will continue doing what he has been doing over the past months and years, focusing on his music".

Months after she came forward with her allegations against Weinstein a year ago, Asia Argento paid $380,000 to Jimmy Bennett, who played her son in the 2004 movie The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things, according to documents provided to the New York Times. The New York Times report did not state that Argento admitted any wrongdoing.

The actor made a Dollars 380,000 settlement with actor Jimmy Bennett, the accuser who claimed that in 2013, the "XXX" actor assaulted him just after he turned 17, reported The New York Times.

Representatives for Argento could not be immediately reached for comment.

In an April letter addressed to Argento confirming the final details of the deal and setting out a schedule of payments, Goldberg characterized the money as "helping Mr. Bennett".

Shortly after those revelations broke in October past year, in November, Bennett's lawyers sent a notice of intent to sue to Richard Hofstetter, lawyer for the late Anthony Bourdain, who was also representing Argento at the time. "We are not going to allow you to get away with it". In it, Bennett's lawyers claimed the sexual assault was so traumatizing that it had affected their client's acting career.

His notice of intent to sue sought $3.5 million in damages for "intentional infliction of emotional distress, lost wages, assault and battery", the paper said.
