Asia Argento made deal to pay her own sexual assault accuser

Actress Asia Argento, one of the first prominent women to accuse disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, agreed to pay $380,000 to an actor who accused her of sexually assaulting him when he was 17 years old, The New York Times reported Sunday night.

The actor claimed that the assault took place in a California hotel room in 2013, according to the report. The age of consent in California is 18.

Neither Argento's representatives nor the actor's attorney immediately responded to Fox News' request for comment.

The newspaper obtained documents sent between lawyers for Argento and the accuser that laid out a payment schedule. The paper also obtained a photograph dated May 9, 2013 that showed the two lying in a bed together.

On that date, according to a notice of intent to sue document sent to Argento's then-lawyer in November, Argento met the actor at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Marina del Rey, Calif. After giving him alcohol, Argento kissed him and performed oral sex on him before the two had sexual intercourse, the report said.

The notice of intent asked for $3.5 million in damages. The Times reported that the final agreement was reached in April of this year.

Argento, now 42, played a prominent role in the downfall of Weinstein, the former head of Miramax. In October of last year, The New Yorker published allegations by Argento that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 1997.
Disgraced former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein is denying he admitted to The Spectator that he offered acting jobs to women in exchange for sex.

"I was not willing,” she told journalist Ronan Farrow at the time. "I said, 'No, no, no.' ... It's twisted. A big fat man wanting to eat you. It's a scary fairy tale."

Argento added that she occasionally had consensual sexual encounters with Weinstein over the years, because she felt she "had to" and "didn't want to anger him."

The allegations against Weinstein by Argento and other actresses -- including Ashley Judd, Gwenyth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Rose McGowan -- gave rise to the global "MeToo" movement and prompted a re-examination of the behavior of prominent men in other industries, most notably media and entertainment.

Weinstein has since been charged in New York with first- and third-degree rape and first-degree commission of a criminal sex act. He faces up to 37 years in prison if convicted.

As of Sunday evening, the pinned tweet on Argento's Twitter account referenced a speech she gave at May's Cannes Film Festival in France, an event she described as Weinstein's "hunting ground."

"For all the brave women who came forward denouncing their predators, and for all the brave women who will come forward in the future," she wrote. "We got the power."

Madonna turns 60, celebrating more than three decades of fame and controversy

Madonna turns 60 on Thursday, and celebrates not only a birthday but a place in the celebrity spotlight that has spanned more than 30 years.

Her career has not been without controversy.

Just weeks ago, she told an interviewer that she moved her family from New York City to Portugal to escape Donald Trump's presidency.

"I felt like we needed a change, and I wanted to get out of America for a minute," the singer told Vogue Italia, according to News.com.au.

During last year's Women's March, she said she'd considered "blowing up the White House" after Trump was elected.

The president reacted by calling Madonna "disgusting."

"Honestly, she's disgusting," Trump said during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "I think [Madonna] hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause."

Trump added that what the Queen of Pop said along with a "couple of others" was "disgraceful to our country."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told "Fox & Friends" that Madonna "ought to be arrested" for her White House comment.

But Madonna clarified on social media that she "spoke in metaphor" and that her comments were "taken wildly out of context."

Previously, she told Harper's Bazaar in 2017 that Election Night in November 2016 "was just like watching a horror show," and prayed Trump wouldn't get elected.

Whether fans approve or disapprove of her outspokenness, Madonna has sold more than 300 million records, making her the best-selling female recording artist of all time, according to the Guinness World Records.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gerald Lebovits said pop superstar Madonna was 'merely harassing' fellow residents of her Upper West Side co-op for continuing to seek records from the board after she lost a legal bid challenging a rule on her lease.

She grew up in Michigan and moved to New York in 1977 to study dance and model.

In the early 1980s, she launched her music career with smash hits like "Holiday," "Lucky Star," and "Like a Virgin."

Then came the chart-toppers "Material Girl," "Into the Groove," and "Papa Don't Preach" in the mid-1980s.

The early 1990s brought "Vogue," from her album "I'm Breathless," and her controversial book "Sex" in 1992.

In 1996, she landed the coveted role of Evita Duarte in the film "Evita" portraying the wife of Juan Peron, the Argentine president during the 1940s and 50s.

Her other films have included "Desperately Seeking Susan" (1985), "Dick Tracy" (1990), "A League of Their Own" (1992) and "Swept Away" (2002).

The mega pop-star collaborated with pop icon in Britney Spears for "Me Against the Music" in 2003.

She continued to make music into the 2010s, including a recent collaboration with Nicki Minaj.

Cardi B Drops Out of Bruno Mars Tour, Says She's 'Not Ready to Leave My Baby'

At the end of last month, Cardi B dropped out of the tour to spend time with her newborn daughter, Kulture.

"As of today I've decided I won't be joining Bruno on tour this Fall. I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing," Cardi wrote at the time.

"Not only am I just not ready physically, I'm not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it's not healthy for her to be on the road."

Mars was very supportive of the new mom, sending her a personal message and saying, "Most important thing is you and your family's health. I know the fans will understand. You are absolutely doing the right thing I also know we'll share the stage when the time is right."

SERAP has called on NBC to immediately lift the recent ban on Jay FM 101.9 Jos and songs such as Falz’s ‘This is Nigeria’, Wande Coal’s ‘Iskaba’ and Olamide’s ‘See Mary, See Jesus’.

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has called on the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately lift the recent ban on Jay FM 101.9 Jos and songs such as Falz’s ‘This is Nigeria’, Wande Coal’s ‘Iskaba’ and Olamide’s ‘See Mary, See Jesus’.

The organization said the action by the NBC “amounts to illegal restrictions on media freedom, the right to freedom of opinion and expression and free information and ideas.”

SERAP in a statement signed by its Deputy Director, Timothy Adewale, on Sunday, expressed “Concern about the censorship of the media and songs deemed ‘vulgar and indecent’ by the NBC, as such action risks undermining legitimate expression and independent voices. The NBC must immediately lift the ban on the radio station and rescind the arbitrary fine.”

The organization said, “The right to freedom of expression, information and ideas is applicable not only to comfortable, inoffensive or politically correct opinions, but also to ideas that offend, shock and disturb. The constant confrontation of ideas, even controversial ones, is a stepping stone to achieving a vibrant democratic society, transparency, accountability and respect for the rule of law.

“Vague rules on vulgarity and indecency should not be used subjectively to ban or fine independent media outlets, particularly radio and television channels. The action by the NBC can create an uncertain environment for radio and television stations and media professionals in general and lead to fostering self-censorship and shunning any meaningful criticism of public policies and authorities.

“The NBC is adopting vague rules vulgarity and indecency to undermine freedom of expression, right to information and opinion. By banning the radio station from playing the songs, the NBC is not only undermining and harming the station, but also undermining everyone’s right to information, public participation and open and democratic governance

“Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to which Nigeria is a state party includes the right of individuals to criticize or openly and publicly evaluate their Governments without fear of interference or punishment.

“It is important for the NBC to strive to promote diversity of views, and the media’s importance as a platform for public debate about important matters of public interest and ideas. Censorship or impermissible restrictions in the exercise of media freedom and freedom of expression can restrict free circulation of ideas and opinions and impose obstacles to the free flow of information.

“Freedom of the press and other news media afford the public one of the best means of discovering and forming an opinion of the ideas on political and social issues and other issues of public interest. Not only does the NBC have the task of ensuring that radio stations and other media organizations can function effectively to impart such information and ideas: the public also has a right to receive them.”
