Former Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick (now starring on BBC 2’s White Gold) has denied accusations made by a woman, Aurelie Wynn, that he sexually assaulted her in July 2014.
She posted on her Facebook that he “pushed me face down and [I] was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock.” She adds, “I told the guy I was seeing [Mark Salling] that I got raped.”
OK. Just a quick aside here.
The guy she was dating was… Mark Salling? Glee-actor-turned-convicted-pedophile Mark Salling?
She went to Mark Salling to tell him about her rape from Ed Westwick?
There is a metaphor about the Hollywood swamp in there, I just can’t quite untangle it.
Anyway. Aurelie says she was told by friends to stay silent but decided to go to the police yesterday.
You’ll recall, the day before, another woman, Kristina Cohen, also filed a report with LAPD saying Westwick raped her.
Westwick denies both allegations.
He posted, “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 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.”
After yesterday’s possible Charlie Sheen/Corey Haim revelation, I am absolutely sickened by Hollywood. It’s all just so sad. Every goddamn day.
