GLOBAL: Another woman accuses Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick of Rape
|Another woman, Aurelie Wynn, has alleged that she was raped by “Gossip Girl” actor Ed Westwick.
This is coming 2 days after actress Kristina Cohen accused him of the same thing.
Cohen had on Monday said she was raped by Westwick after she and her boyfriend visited the actor in his home.
In the new allegation, Wynn said the incident took place in July 2014, with the surrounding events similar to that of Cohen’s.
She said she had visited Westwick in the company of a friend, and they had decided to get some shut eye when the actor forced himself on her.
She had said no, she said, but the actor pushed her face down and ripped her bathing suit.
She said she had told her boyfriend at the time, Mark Salling, who recently pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.
Salling had pretended not to know who Westwick was, then had blamed Wynn and broken up with her, she said.
Wynn added that she’s coming out with the story to support Cohen’s claim, saying she believed her.
Read her full post below:
In July 2014, I went through a very similar ordeal with Ed Westwick, I was ubered by Ed to the Glendower Estates where he was renting following an invite from a girl friend of mine who was dating his roommate a cast member on Glee, we all hung out until 5am, sun was starting to rise since it was summer so we all decided to get a few hours of shut eye since we all had events and things to do the next day and there are plenty of bedrooms.
And 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, I am also very tiny.
I told the guy I was seeing that I got raped, Mark Salling, and when he found out by who he pretended not to know him, then blamed me for it and broke it off with me. 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.
And so I kept quiet and soon got to see and hear how prevalent sexual assault and intimidation goes on in this industry…to the point where I questioned how much I really wanted to be in entertainment as I didn’t see it getting better.
And at what cost? I’ve since moved on from acting and wanted just to reenforce Kristin Cohen’s claim as I believe them to be true. #alllivesmatter.
I am so incredibly thankful all of this is finally coming to light and that there is justice in the world.
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. #metoo
