Ed Westwick, best known as as Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, has been accused of rape
‘I was paralyzed, I couldn’t speak’
Yesterday, LA-based actress Kristina Cohen came forward accusing actor Ed Westwick, best known for his role as Chuck Bass in "Gossip Girl," of raping her.
Following allegations against Hollywood giants like Harvey Weinstein, James Toback and Kevin Spacey, Cohen says she decided to speak up because of public support for other women naming their alleged abusers.
"I was sexually assaulted three years ago," she wrote on Facebook about Ed Westwick. She said at the time of the assault, she was in a bad place mentally while her mom was dying of cancer.
Cohen went on to explain the alleged encounter, claiming it was a producer she was dating who brought her to Ed's house for the first time before Ed said he wanted them to "all fuck."
Cohen says she wanted to leave, but the producer suggested they stay for dinner. She says she told them she was tired in an attempt to escape, but Ed told her to lie down in his guest room.
"I laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep," she wrote. "I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to fuck me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me."
She described it as a nightmare, and says the days that followed "weren't any better."
Cohen says the producer she was dating put the blame on her, slamming her as an "active participant." He threatened that if she said anything or told anyone, "Ed will have people come after me, destroy" her.
Cohen says she's come forward because she's sick of seeing "men like Ed" respected in such a public way. She adds she hopes her story will help others to know they're not alone.
Westwick's claim to fame is his portrayal of Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass, a 20-something billionaire who had a rape storyline on the show.
We've reached out to Cohen and Westwick for comment, and will update this story as more information becomes available. Read Cohen's full Facebook post here.
