A second woman, actress Aurélie Wynn, has accused Ed Westwick of rape, her accusation coming on the heels of Kristina Cohen‘s rape allegation.

AURÉLIE WYNN IS SECOND TO ACCUSE ED WESTWICK OF RAPE

The LAPD is now investigating the claims made by actress Cohen. The actress accused Westwick of rape from an incident three years ago. She shared in a Facebook post that she was at his house for dinner when she went to take a nap in the guest room. She allegedly awoke with the actor on top of her as he forced himself on her. Following the accusation, Westwick took to Instagram to clear his name. “I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape,” he wrote.

Now Wynn has posted her own story on Wednesday that the former Gossip Girl star sexually assaulted her in July 2014. “Like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock, I am also very tiny,” she described. “I told the guy I was seeing that I got raped, [Glee star] Mark Salling, and when he found out by who he pretended not to know him, then blamed me for it and broke it off with me. My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, to not be ‘that girl’ and that no one would believe me and think I was just out trying to get my 10 seconds of fame.”

After sharing her story, Wynn thanked Cohen for giving her the courage to speak up for herself. “I believe you Kristina Cohen and thank you for speaking up so eloquently and really encompassing what young female actresses have to go through at the hands of men like Ed Westwick,” Wynn continued. “Without you I would not have had the strength to speak up publicly about my ordeal. #metoo.”

Now the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that they are looking into at least Cohen’s claim that the “suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence…three years ago.”

Westwick responded with a tweet: “It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude that I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct. I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.”

Read the full text of Wynn’s post below:

In July 2014, I went through a very similar ordeal with Ed Westwick, I was ubered by Ed to the Glendower Estates where he was renting following an invite from a girl friend of mine who was dating his roommate a cast member on Glee, we all hung out until 5am, sun was starting to rise since it was summer so we all decided to get a few hours of shut eye since we all had events and things to do the next day and there are plenty of bedrooms. And like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock, I am also very tiny. When it was over I got my cellphone and found that the girl that had invited me had left or got kicked out. I had terrible service in the estate without access to the wifi and had to get another friend to get me an Uber out of there while Ed was passed out. The house is so big I took a video of my experience getting out of the house since it’s literally a maze. I told the guy I was seeing that I got raped, Mark Salling, and when he found out by who he pretended not to know him, then blamed me for it and broke it off with me. My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, to not be “that girl” and that no one would believe me and think I was just out trying to get my 10 seconds of fame.
And so I kept quiet and soon got to see and hear how prevalent sexual assault and intimidation goes on in this industry…to the point where I questioned how much I really wanted to be in entertainment as I didn’t see it getting better. And at what cost? I’ve since moved on from acting and wanted just to reenforce Kristin Cohen’s claim as I believe them to be true.
I am so incredibly thankful all of this is finally coming to light and that there is justice in the world. I believe you Kristina Cohen and thank you for speaking up so eloquently and really encompassing what young female actresses have to go through at the hands of men like Ed Westwick. Without you I would not have had the strength to speak up publicly about my ordeal. #metoo
