UPDATE 3:35 PM PST: Asia responded with:

The saga is over… for now.
As we reported, Asia Argento blasted (and later threatened legal action against) Rose McGowan for her August 27 statement where she says romantic partner, Rain Dove, received alleged texts from Argento saying Asia received “unsolicited nudes of [accuser] Jimmy [Bennett] since he had been 12.”

(According to an alleged screenshot from Argento, Dove later clarified that the text said Jimmy was 17.)
On Thursday, McGowan issued a public apology to Argento about her “not correct” statement.
The Citizen Rose star wrote:

“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).”

McGowan also states she will no longer “comment further” on Argento and Bennett’s 2013 sexual encounter as she does “not feel that it is [her] place.”
In an interview with DailyMailTV, Argento says she received a call from McGowan following the passing of boyfriend Anthony Bourdain. Asia now calls Rose’s actions a “publicity stunt.”
