Per their settlement, the Times reports that Bennett had to turn the photograph and its copyright over to Argento.
While the Times has not received a response from Argento and Bennett declined to comment on the matter, the paper said three people familiar with the case corroborated the documents' authenticity. Bennett's lawyer gave the newspaper the following statement: "In the coming days, Jimmy will continue doing what he has been doing over the past months and years, focusing on his music".
Argento has not responded to The Times' request for comment.
In an April letter addressed to Argento confirming the final details of the deal and setting out a schedule of payments, Goldberg characterized the money as "helping Mr. Bennett". "You are a powerful and inspiring creator and it is a miserable condition of life that you live among shitty individuals who've preyed on both your strengths and your weaknesses".
Gordon K Sattro, Bennett's lawyer wrote in the notice of intent to sue that it was Argento presenting herself as a victim of sexual assault was too much to bear for him, which gradually jogged up memories of the hotel incident.
Argento had been in a relationship with Anthony Bourdain since late 2016, when they met on the set of his CNN series "Parts Unknown".
On the day of their meeting but before Bennett arrived, Argento reportedly posted an Instagram message about looking forward to seeing him.
The actor made his allegations in legal documents in November 2017, a month after Argento's allegations against Harvey Weinstein were revealed in a New Yorker report by Ronan Farrow. This happened shortly after she came out with her Weinstein accusations in October.
He asked for $3.5 million (£2.7m) in damages for the "intentional infliction of emotional distress, lost wages, assault and battery".
However, maintaining his innocence, Weinstein, whose career has been left in tatters, has always denied non-consensual sex.
