Uh oh, it looks like Ed Westwick may be facing 2 possible sexual assault allegation charges.
The former “Gossip Girl” star previously denied several rape allegations as a result of the Me Too movement ignited by Harvey Weinstein’s downfall. He has since been absent from social media.
Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Greg Risling stated that 2 cases – the first filed on 20th March, followed by another on 5th April – have been handed over by the LAPD. Both cases are currently being reviewed.
Sources note that only 2 cases have been passed although 3 women previously came forward. They were Kristina Cohen, Aurelie Wynn and Rachel Eck. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the 30-year-old English actor denied Cohen’s claims, saying, “I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape.”
According to reports, Westwick has been co-operating with the police to clear his name.
