Photog who caught Asia Argento with French reporter says he regrets snapping pics

Rino Barillari, the paparazzo who caught Asia Argento dancing in a Roman restaurant with French reporter Hugo Clément, regrets he took the photos and sold them to Chi, an Italian magazine.

Argento’s recent lover, Anthony Bourdain, 61, committed suicide on June 8, five days after the photos first appeared online.

“If I had known, I would have stopped,” the photographer told La Verità. “A picture is not worth a life. If that shot triggered suicide . . . this would make me suffer.”

Argento and Bourdain met on the set of his series "Parts Unknown" in 2016 and officially began dating in 2017.  

Clément, 28 — who covered famine in Congo and the threats gay men face in Tunisia — accompanied Argento, 42, to the speech she made at the Cannes Film Festival in May, when she said, “In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein here.”

Another photographer, Agostino Fabio, took pictures of Argento and Clément holding hands and hugging on the streets of Rome, but pulled them off the market on the heels of Bourdain’s death.

Barillari snapped the two dancing after dinner at Ristorante Camponeschi. “Everyone looked at them,” he told La Verità. “She looked like a possessed doll . . . a scene of crazy sensuality.”

Anthony Bourdain, CNN host and celebrity chef, was remembered by his friends and colleagues as a 'friend to us all' following his reported suicide.

When Argento realized she and Clément had been photographed, she asked Barillari to delete the shots, he said.

But Argento’s friend, actress and fellow Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, released a statement Monday saying, in part, that Bourdain and Argento were in a “free relationship” and “loved without the borders of traditional relationships.”

Argento and Bourdain last made a public appearance together at an event in New York in April.
