Ed Westwick has once again issued a statement of denial in regard to a disturbing allegation of rape.
In a Facebook post she shared online yesterday, former actress Aurélie Wynn alleged that the ex-Gossip Girl sexually assaulted her at his rental residence in July of 2014.
Using the hashtag "#metoo" to signify that she could relate to other women who have been victims of sexual assault, harassment or misconduct, Wynn wrote the following on Wednesday.
She started the post by referencing Kristina Cohen's rape accusation against Westwick...
"In July 2014, I went through a very similar ordeal with Ed Westwick.
"I was ubered by Ed to the Glendower Estates where he was renting following an invite from a girl friend of mine who was dating his roommate a cast member on Glee...
"We all hung out until 5am, sun was starting to rise since it was summer so we all decided to get a few hours of shut eye since we all had events and things to do the next day and there are plenty of bedrooms."
Just like Cohen claims, Wynn writes that she told Westwick "no" when he got aggressive with her, but...
"He pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock."
Wynn says she was dating former Glee star Mark Salling at the time; told Salling about the incident; and he brushed her off, prior to quickly dumping her.
(For whatever it's worth, Salling has been pleaded guilty to multiple counts of child pornography.)
"I am so incredibly thankful all of this is finally coming to light and that there is justice in the world," concluded Wynn on Facebook.
"I believe you Kristina Cohen and thank you for speaking up so eloquently and really encompassing what young female actresses have to go through at the hands of men like Ed Westwick.
"Without you I would not have had the strength to speak up publicly about my ordeal."
In response to Cohen's rape charge, Westwick issued the following statement:
I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on a woman. I certainly have never committed rape.
He is currently under police investigation.
In response to Wynn's rape charge, Westwick says the following:
It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct.
I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.
Ever since a bombshell New York Times article that shined a light on producer Harvey Weinstein's years of sexual misconduct, more and more women have found the courage to share their stories.
Some have come forward and accused Weinstein of assault.
Others have pointed a finger at stars such as Kevin Spacey, Charlie Sheen, Steven Seagal and Dustin Hoffman.
