Director Rob Cohen Responds to Asia Argento's Sexual Assault Claims

Rob Cohen has issued a statement after Asia Argento accused the director of sexual assault.

“He abused me, making me drink GHB, he had a bottle of it,” the 45-year-old actress recalled in a new interview for Variety. “At the time, I really didn’t know what it was. I woke up in the morning naked in his bed.”

Asia says that the assault took place while filming xXx with Vin Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson.

A spokesperson for Rob has issued a statement about the accusations, via E! News.

“Mr. Cohen categorically denies Asia Argento’s accusation of assault against him as absolutely false,” the statement reads. “When they worked together, they had an excellent working relationship and Mr. Cohen considered her a friend, so this claim dating back to 2002 is bewildering, especially given what has been reported about her in recent years.”

Asia was one of Harvey Weinstein‘s accusers as well, and also faced allegations of her own.
