Another woman accuses Ed Westwick of rape

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Days after actor Kristina Cohen accused "Gossip Girl" star Ed Westwick of raping her, another woman has come forward with a similar story against the actor.

Aurelie Wynn posted her story on Facebook, narrating that Westwick allegedly raped her in 2014 during a party.

"Like Kristina, I said no and 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..." said Wynn.

After the incident, Wynn confided in her boyfriend about her assault, which ended her relationship.

"My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, to not be 'that girl' and that no one would believe me and think I was just out trying to get my 10 seconds of fame," she said.

Wynn said that after hearing the story of Kristina Cohen, who has alleged that Westwick raped her at his apartment, she decided to open up just to "reinforce Kristin Cohen's claim".

"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," Wynn said.

Yesterday, Cohen filed a complaint against Ed Westwick with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), which is investigating her claims.

Westwick has denied the allegations of rape levelled against him by Cohen, saying, "I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape," he added.
