Gos­sip Girl star de­nies rape claims

24 Hours Vancouver - - CLASSIFIED -

For­mer Gos­sip Girl star Ed West­wick has ve­he­mently de­nied al­le­ga­tions sug­gest­ing he raped ac­tress Kristina Co­hen, in­sist­ing he has no idea who she is. Co­hen pub­lished a lengthy post on Facebook, re­call­ing a re­ported en­counter be­tween her­self and the Bri­tish star three years ago, when she ac­com­pa­nied a mu­tual friend to his house.

Co­hen claims West­wick sug­gested they should all have sex, and al­though she felt un­com­fort­able and wanted to leave, her uniden­ti­fied pro­ducer friend urged her to stay — and West­wick en­cour­aged her to take a nap in a guest room. “I was wo­ken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fin­gers en­ter­ing my body ... He held me down and raped me,” she wrote.

The ac­tress went on to de­scribe how her then-boyfriend had blamed her for the al­leged as­sault.
