Ed Westwick who played the rich brat Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, has been accused of rape by actress Kristina Cohen. It shook Hollywood yesterday when her Facebook post went viral. But now the actor has give out his statement on Twitter saying he doesn't even know this woman. Ed wrote, "I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape." But according to AFP, investigation in the matter is on.
Kritina Cohen claimed that Ed raped her three years ago at his house. She writes, "Ed insisted we stay for dinner. I said I was tired and wanted to leave, trying to get out of what was already an uncomfortable situation. I eventually fell asleep, 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," she said. "I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn't speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me."
This accusation comes in the wake of a flurry of sexual misconduct cases hitting Hollywood recently. It started with Harvey Wienstein, moved to Kevin Spacey and now it's Ed Westwick. Kristina was part of shows like Californification and The Middle.
