Rain Dove Says Asia Argento Texts Were Sent to the Police

Rain Dove Dubilewski, the gender-nonconforming model whose texts with the Italian actress Asia Argento have emerged as evidence in a potential criminal case against Ms. Argento, said Wednesday that they — Rain Dove — turned the messages over to the Los Angeles police because they believed that Ms. Argento was not being truthful. (Rain Dove prefers nongendered pronouns.)

“I turned in materials that may contribute to an honest investigation,” the model said in a statement.

In a subsequent interview with The New York Times, Rain Dove said the text exchange began when Ms. Argento reached out to them on Aug. 18, a day before The Times published an article detailing how Ms. Argento, a leading voice in the #MeToo movement, had quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to Jimmy Bennett, a young actor who said the two had had sex in a California hotel room when she was 37 and he was 17. The age of consent in that state is 18.

“They said, ‘Someone has some dirt on me,’” Rain Dove, 28, recalled, referring to Ms. Argento. “‘I’m in really, really big trouble.’”

In November, Mr. Bennett’s lawyer sent a notice to Ms. Argento that the actor intended to sue for the damage he said he suffered in the wake of the sexual encounter. That letter came a month after she said publicly that she had been raped by the movie producer Harvey Weinstein. The initial payments to Mr. Bennett came from Anthony Bourdain, the culinary celebrity who was dating Ms. Argento when he killed himself in June.

Mr. Bennett’s claim and the arrangements to pay him were laid out in documents sent to The Times through encrypted email by an unidentified party.

When The Times reached out to Ms. Argento and her representatives this month for comment on the forthcoming report, Rain Dove advised Ms. Argento on how to respond. Ms. Argento sent Rain Dove text messages: “I had sex with him and it felt weird” and “the horny kid jumped me.” The texts were later published on the website TMZ.

Rain Dove told Ms. Argento, “You need the truth to be on the table,” and to “not put down the person who’s accusing you,” Rain Dove said in the interview.

Rain Dove Dubilewski, the gender non-conforming model whose texts with the Italian actress Asia Argento have emerged as evidence in a potential criminal case against Ms. Argento, issued this statement on Wednesday.

But two days after the Times article was published, Ms. Argento issued a statement — her only public response — denying she had sex with Mr. Bennett. She said that Mr. Bennett “made an exorbitant request of money,” and that Mr. Bourdain thought it best to pay him to keep the matter private.

The statement was painful to read, Rain Dove said. “It became clear that they were not going to follow their own ethics,” Rain Dove said in the statement, referring to Ms. Argento. “I’m not trying to say we should put anyone in jail or punish anyone,” Rain Dove added in an interview, “but I think everyone should come to the table with the truth.”

Rain Dove said delivering the texts to the Los Angeles Country Sheriff’s Department, which is investigating the case, took many days and several telephone calls, texts and emails before a detective confirmed that the information had been received. At one point, getting little response from the police, Rain Dove enlisted the help of a rape crisis center whose number was listed on the sheriff department’s website.

“I know that I am a character in the story but I am not the important voice in this story,” Rain Dove said. “The important voices are the voices of Jimmy Bennett and Asia Argento.”

The sheriff’s department is investigating the case, but Gordon K. Sattro, Mr. Bennett’s lawyer, said Wednesday that his client has not spoken with the police, although detectives have reached out to him.

The situation is further complicated because Rain Dove is in a romantic relationship with Rose McGowan, who became close friends with Ms. Argento after both said publicly that Mr. Weinstein had sexually assaulted them. Ms. McGowan was by Ms. Argento’s side as she mourned Mr. Bourdain’s death, along with Rain Dove; that is when the model and Ms. Argento first met.

Ms. McGowan, who issued her own statement two days ago, said that when Rain Dove shared the texts with her, there was no question that they should be turned over to the police, despite her friendship with Ms. Argento.

“If we look at it objectively and take the heart out of it, it’s about a potential victim being heard,” Ms. McGowan said in an interview Wednesday from Spain, where the couple is vacationing. “This movement is all about voices being heard.”

Ms. McGowan has broken off contact with Ms. Argento, who accused both her and Rain Dove of leaking the texts to the news media, she said. Both Ms. McGowan and Rain Dove said that was not true. Rain Dove did share the texts with a small circle of people seeking advice, and suspects that might be how the information came out, the model said.

Rain Dove said that whether Mr. Bennett was extorting money and whether he had been sexually assaulted were separate issues, and that all victims of crime deserve justice. “At the end of it, once we’ve all come clean and all the truth is on the table, I do believe Asia Argento could if she really wants to could come back from this.”
