Asia Argento removed as jury of 'X Factor Italy'

Film producer Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 80 women

The first seven episodes of X Factor Italy, in which auditions were held and the final 12 competitors for the show were selected, can not be re-shot without recasting the season overall and therefore those episodes will still feature Argento.

Sources have confirmed that Sky Italia and FremantleMedia Italia have chose to pull Argento from the live portion of the talent show, which starts airing on September 6.

On Monday, actress and fellow proponent of #MeToo, Rose McGowan, released a statement that named model and activist Rain Dove as the person who brought the incriminating text messages between Argento and Dove to the police.

Argento has since admitted to agreeing to the payout, which she has claimed was organised by her boyfriend, late chef Anthony Bourdain, but has denied having sex with Bennett, now 22.

Rose McGowan further distanced herself from Asia Argento in the wake of sexual assault allegations waged against the actress-director.

Rose McGowan has called upon Asia Argento, who is now facing sexual abuse allegations, to come clean, saying "be the person you wish Harvey (Weinstein) could have been".

Argento also allegedly told Dove that she had been receiving "unsolicited" nude photos of Bennett since he was 12 years old, but had not taken action to stop Bennett from sending more.

"I can not stand by while Asia Argento is hurled under a bus", Anthony said.
