Ed Westwick, who played attempted rapist Chuck Bass on your favourite TV show Gossip Girl, has been accused of rape by Kristina Cohen.
The revelation comes via a Facebook post by Kristina, in which she details an incident where a “producer” she was dating took her to Ed’s house — only to have Ed suggest they “should all fuck.” At this point, Kristina says she declined and wanted to get out of there, but her “producer” boyfriend was more worried about Ed feeling uncomfortable, so he decided they’d both stay. Wow.
Kristina says that Ed then offered his guest room so she could take a nap. She was tired so she accepted. Then she woke up to Ed assaulting her.
“So I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep,” she wrote. “I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to fuck me. I was paralysed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.”
She says the whole situation was a “nightmare” and so were the following days. “The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant,” she continues. “Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career. Saying there’s no way I can go around saying Ed ‘raped’ me and that I don’t want to be ‘that girl.'” Surprise, surprise.
