- The Washington Times - Thursday, November 9, 2017

Another actress is now accusing “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick of sexual assault.

Aurelie Wynn took to her personal Facebook page Wednesday to share her story, saying that incident occurred after a night of partying at his Los Angeles home in July 2014 and that her assault was similar to one described by actress Kristina Cohen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Ms. Cohen first leveled her allegations Monday, saying the incident occurred in Mr. Westwick’s home in 2014 and that in addition to being raped, her boyfriend at the time refused to believe her story and cautioned her to not report it.

Ms. Wynn’s Facebook post describes a similar scenario, saying her then-boyfriend “blamed me for it and broke it off with me.”

In a completely unrelated matter, Ms. Wynn’s former boyfriend, “Glee” star Mark Salling, has since been arrested for and pleaded guilty to child-pornography charges.

Ms. Wynn concluded her Facebook comment by thanking Ms. Cohen for inspiring her to share her story: “Without you I would not have had the strength to speak up publicly about my ordeal. #metoo”

For her part, Ms. Cohen on Thursday responded on her Facebook wall

“I honor you Aurélie Wynn! You are a hero! You are SACRED and DIVINE!” she wrote. “And nobody can take that away from you! It is your birthright! My love is with you! We can heal and bring each other up! I cannot wait to embrace you my sister. We’re all in this together! It’s time!”

Mr. Westwick has denied both charges, tweeting, “I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.”

Since posting her allegation on Facebook, Ms. Wynn’s post has received a number of comments from angry detractors who accuse her of fabricating the story.

One such user claimed that Ms. Wynn’s allegations are not credible, showing what she said was a screen capture from Ms. Wynn’s Instagram account, @lovelyrellie, dated after the alleged incident in 2014, wherein Ms. Wynn said was the “most #epic #amazing #summer of my #life.”

That Instagram account is currently listed as private, requiring authorization from Ms. Wynn to be viewed.

On Oct. 10 Ms. Wynn posted to her Facebook wall a message that apparently alluded to the New York Times’ Harvey Weinstein exposé, although nothing in that message suggested she had ever personally been a victim of similar misconduct.

“#Thankful that the truth is finally coming out… There is so much exploitation of women in #Hollywood from older powerful men that goes unreported for fear of being ostracized… #angels #truth #inspiration #womenenpowerment #speakout,” she wrote.
