Gossip Girl star denies rape claims
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.
