Rain Dove Says They ‘Feel Really Bad’ for Asia Argento After Turning Over Texts to LAPD
Rain Dove is "gender non-binary". Translation: can't tell whether you're a he or she. Hint: look between your thighs!
Rain Dove, the model who supplied evidence that seems to support Asia Argento accuser Jimmy Bennett, tells TheWrap that they still feel sympathy for the embattled #MeToo figure.
Dove, who is gender non-binary and uses the pronouns “they” and “them,” shot into America’s consciousness Monday after saying they contacted investigators regarding text messages with Argento in which Argento admitted to having sex with Bennet, who was a minor at the time of the encounter.
“I do feel really bad that this person was so impacted by this,” Dove told TheWrap of Argento. “But they should have told the truth. A lot of harm could have been done if they had gotten away with that.”
Gossip site TMZ published some of Dove and Argento’s texts last week, in which Argento admits that she did, in fact, have sex with Bennett, contradicting an earlier public statement in which she claimed the two were only friends.
“The Public knows nothing, only what the NYT wrote. Which is one sided. The shakedown letter. The horny kid jumped me…,” one of Argento’s texts read.
“So it was rape? Or an attempted sexual action?” Dove asked.
“I had sex with him it felt weird. I didn’t know he was a minor until the shakedown letter,” Argento replied.
Dove told TheWrap they have not spoken to Argento since coming forward. The only exchange they’ve had recently was over text messaging, when Dove said Argento called them a “monster.”
“She felt betrayed and really hurt and she has the right to feel betrayed and really hurt, she confided in me,” Dove said.
