Second actress accuses Gossip Girl star of rape

GOSSIP Girl star Ed Westwick has been accused of rape by a second woman, one day after he denied the accusations made by actor Kristina Cohen.
In a social media post the woman, Aurelie Wynn, claims that she went “through a very similar ordeal with Ed Westwick” as that alleged by Cohen.
“Like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight,” she wrote. “I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock.”
Wynn also claimed she was advised by family and friends “not to say anything, to not be “that girl” and that “no one would believe me”.
She added: ‘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 actors 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.’
Wynn’s claims come after Cohen accused British actor Westwick, best known for playing Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl, of raping her three years ago.
She claimed a producer she was dating at the time allegedly brought her to Westwick’s house, where he raped her. He has denied this.
