‘Gossip Girl’ Star Ed Westwick Accused of Rape by Second Woman

A second woman has come forward to accuse “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick of sexual assault, which the actor denied on Thursday.

In the Facebook post published on Wednesday, former actress Aurélie Wynn claimed Westwick raped her in July 2014, around the same time when Kristina Cohen, who was the first to go public against Westwick, said he assaulted her. In her post, Wynn said she 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,” she wrote. “And like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and [I] was powerless under his weight.”

She added that she was wearing a one-piece bathing suit, which Westwick allegedly ripped. “When it was over I got my cellphone and found that the girl that had invited me had left or got kicked out,” she continued.

Wynn said she was dating “Glee” star Mark Salling (who last month pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography) at the time and told him about the experience, who then allegedly “pretended not to know him, then blamed me for it and broke it off with me.”

Westwick responded to the latest allegation on Twitter on Friday, writing, “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.”

Cohen went public with rape allegations against Westwick earlier this week, which Westwick also denied. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Cohen filed a police report against Westwick, and that it references Westwick “as being a suspect in a crime of rape.”

“I do not know this woman,” he wrote in a statement posted on Twitter at the time. “I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape.”
