As part of the deal, Bennett handed over to Argento the rights to a photograph of the two of them in bed.

According to the legal documents obtained by the Times, Bennett was escorted to Argento's hotel by a family member in May of 2013 for a reunion of sorts.

The Times cited three people familiar with the case as saying the documents were authentic.

Argento's lawyer, Carrie Goldberg has not made an official comment and Bennett has not released a statement.

The New York Times' Jodi Kantor, co-writer of the Harvey Weinstein story that helped kick off the Me Too movement, cautioned that Asia Argento has yet to comment on the allegations. Bennett declined an interview with the Times. However, Bennett's lawyer, Gordon K. Sattro told the Times: "In the coming days, Jimmy will continue doing what he has been doing over the past months and years, focusing on his music".

The two had lunch, and Mr. Bennett headed home to Orange County, where he lived with his parents. "We are not going to allow you to get away with it".

The actor's attorneys reportedly notified Argento of their intent to sue in November. In it, Bennett's lawyers claimed the sexual assault was so traumatizing that it had affected their client's acting career. Bourdain and Argento were in a relationship before his death.

Argento became a powerful voice for the #MeToo movement after accusing Weinstein of raping her when she was 21 in his hotel room in 1997 during the Cannes film festival. "This festival was his hunting ground".

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 60 women since The New York Times, and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed, Pulitzer-prize winning articles in October. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". She detailed the alleged attack in the New Yorker past year.
