Former Gossip Girl Cast Member Ed Westwick Accused of Sexual Assault
The former Gossip Girl cast member is said to have raped actress Kristina Cohen.Cohen said the incident took place three years ago when she was dating a man she referred to as “the producer.” Her then boyfriend took her over to Westwick’s house, where the star suggested a threesome with the pair.
Though Cohen said she was uncomfortable her boyfriend didn’t want to leave. Instead, Westwick suggested she go lie down in a spare bedroom, which Cohen did. When she woke up, she found Westwick on top of her, and he proceeded to rape her after she tried to fight him off.
When Cohen told her boyfriend, she said in her lengthy Facebook post that, “The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant. Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career. Saying there’s no way I can go around saying Ed “raped” me and that I don’t want to be “that girl.”
Ed posted on his Instagram yesterday, denying Cohen’s claims.
Hours after the comment was posted, Kristina Cohen went to the LAPD and filed a report according to The Hollywood Reporter. The LAPD is now investigating if the, “suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence … three years ago.”
