A third woman accuses Ed Westwick of sexual assault in 2014

'Gossip Girl' Star Ed Westwick Accused of Rape, Actor Denies Claim

Westwick "asked me to invite a friend to hang out with the three of us", she said, but it was late and her friends were asleep.

Rachel Eck told Buzzfeed that in 2014, she went to a villa at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood to hang with Aussie film producer Kaine Harling (her boyfriend at the time), and Westwick, now 30. It was simply Westwick and Harling hanging out.

"On the way, he told me he was with his friend Ed Westwick".

She said: "I shoved him off as quickly as I could and left". Becoming more uncomfortable as the night wore on, she says she told Harling she was "definitely leaving" and when she said goodbye to Westwick, "Ed... pulled me onto the bed and aggressively groped [my breasts]". Eck says this happened a few times that night, over a seven-hour period of time.

This comes less than a week after actor Kristina Cohen and former actor Aurélie Wynn accused Ed of rape on social media - and interestingly, Kaine Harling was the unnamed producer Kristina was dating when Ed allegedly assaulted her, which means he has been linked to two of the cases brought forward against Ed.

Third Woman Accuses Ed Westwick Of Sexual Assault

A third woman has come forward accusing Ed Westwick of sexual assault, just days after the actor's current girlfriend came to his defense over the accusations, telling RadarOnline.com exclusively that "he's innocent". The creative producer told Buzzfeed News the assault happened the night before the 2014 Academy Awards. When she had had enough, she told Kaine that she wanted to leave, but he told her that Ed wanted to apologise before he went. She said that she has now heard Eck tell the story on three separate occasions.

The actor has previously been accused of rape by actresses Kristina Cohen and Aurélie Wynne, something that Ed vehemently denies. "It was a insane statement about getting groped by Ed Westwick". "I certainly have never committed rape".

The Los Angeles Police Department has launched an investigation into Cohen's claim, after she filed a police report last week.

Ed is now being investigated by the LAPD and had his upcoming television series, Ordeal by Innocence, suspended by the BBC "until the matter is resolved".
