Ed Westwick is currently under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department after actress Kristina Cohen said he raped her three years ago.
A spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed to HuffPost that authorities are looking into the matter after a police report was filed on Tuesday.
While the LAPD refused to comment on the nature of the claim, multiple other outlets are reporting that the “Gossip Girl” star is being investigated for sexual assault.
“Suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence … three years ago,” a section of the report reads, according to Deadline, which was first to report the news of the investigation.
The outlet also notes that two witnesses have come forward in Cohen’s defense: former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman and Cohen’s sister Katalina Colgate. Both claimed that the actress shared the story of her rape years ago.
该机构还指出，两名证人在科恩的辩护中提出了这一问题:前儿童演员Blaise Godbe Lipman和科恩的妹妹Blaise Godbe Lipman。两人都声称这位女演员在几年前就被强奸了。
“Very shortly after it happened, she told me that she was raped. She told me and my other sister. I was furious,” Colgate told the outlet.
Westwick has flatly denied the allegations, writing that he has no knowledge of the incident or Cohen for that matter.
“I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman,” he wrote on social media Tuesday. “I certainly have never committed rape.”
