Rose McGowan may have apologized to Asia Argento, but it seems like the pair’s feud is far from over.
The duo came to blows after it was reported that Argento had sexually assaulted actor Jimmy Bennett, then 17, back in 2013. However, despite McGowan now admitting that some of the things she said “were not correct” regarding the allegations, Argento has still vowed to get revenge.
The actress took to Instagram over the weekend to unveil her new foot tattoo, which consists of a dagger with a drop of blood on it.
Tagging Italian tattoo artist Marco Manzo, Argento captioned one snap on her Stories: “Bye bye @rosemcgowan,” Us Weekly reported.
She later added, “Significato: vendetta consumata,” which is an Italian phrase that is thought to translate to “consumed revenge.”
Argento also quoted a Bible passage from Romans 12:19, which read: “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written. Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
Argento’s posts come after McGowan posted the following statement on Twitter:
“On 27 August I released a statement about Asia Argento, which I now realized (sic) contained a number of facts that were not correct. The most serious of these was that I said that the unsolicited nude text messages Asia received from Jimmy Bennett had been sent since Jimmy was 12 years old.”
In fact, I had misunderstood the messages that Asia exchanged with my partner Rain Dove, which made clear that Jimmy had sent Asia inappropriate text messages only after they met up again when he was 17 (still legally a minor in California, but notably different from a 12-year-old).”
She concluded by writing: “I deeply regret not correcting my mistake sooner and apologize to Asia for not doing so.”
