Famous Hollywood star was just hit with rape allegations out of nowhere. I didn’t expect this from him.
He is best known for his role on the television series Gossip Girl. Ed Westick has just been accused of raping another actress back in 2014.
The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating actress Kristin Cohen’s claim. This is a charge the actor denied over and over again. He even denied the charges on his Twitter account.
Cohen filed a police report just a couple of days ago at the LAPD’s Hollywood Division.
A copy of the report, obtained by Deadline, states that “Suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence…three years ago.”
She stated that he raped her on February 2014, a few days after Valentine’s Day.
According to reports, two other witnesses come forward stating that they support her allegation. One of her friends spoke in an interview saying that she told him about the incident the day after the alleged rape.
“She came over to my home the following morning and told me everything,” he said. “She was in a state of shock. It was without a doubt a rape. I’ve known her since 2009,” he added. “We were teen actors. And we worked on a few projects over the years. We met on the Warner Bros. lot in 2008.”
Her sister also shared the news with her sister a little while after it happened. That sister released a statement sharing that she was furious at Ed.
Apparently Ed told her not to say anything because no one would believe her. And that if she did tell she could kiss her acting career goodbye.
“He told her not to say anything because Ed has a lot of money and resources and no one would believe her,” Lipman said. “He said she could kiss her acting career goodbye because nobody would believe her. She was pressured to keep quite and keep her mouth shut.”
Ed was a sensation after his time on Gossip Girl, and we are hoping this isn’t true.
This is horrifying. I hope that it’s not true….
