Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick denies rape allegations on his social media accounts
But even Gossip Girl fan accounts are dragging him
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.
Today, Westwick refuted the claim, saying, "I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape."
Kristina Cohen describes the alleged rape on Facebook
"I was sexually assaulted three years ago," Cohen writes about Ed Westwick.
She says her boyfriend, a producer, took her to Ed's house for the first time, where Ed suggested they "all fuck." Cohen claims she asked to leave, but her boyfriend wanted to stay for dinner.
"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."
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 would have "people come after" and "destroy" him.
Leighton Meester, who plays his love interest in Gossip Girl, might have unfollowed him
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, where he played opposite love interest Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester.
