‘Gossip Girl’ actor Ed Westwick accused of rape

Actor Kristina Cohen took to Facebook on Monday to state that she was sexually assaulted by actor Ed Westwick, who is best known for his work on “Gossip Girl,” a teen drama that aired 2007-12 on the CW. Cohen wrote a lengthy account saying the rape happened at Westwick’s house three years ago. She explained that at the time she was persuaded by her then-boyfriend not to say anything because it would hurt her career. Westwick, who has won two Teen Choice Awards for his role as the “Gossip Girl” villain, responded to the allegation by posting a statement on Instagram: “I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape.”
