After two women have come forward accusing Ed Westwick of rape, believed his rumoured engagement to Jessica Serfaty (26) is off.
An insider told PEOPLE the Gossip Girl star was getting ready to pop the question to the America’s Next Top Model contestant before the scandal broke. The lovebirds were even said to have looked at rings during a recent trip to Paris.
Jessica, who is no stranger to famous men having dated former One Directioner, Niall Horan, is reportedly keeping a low profile as the accusations rage on.
However she appears to have defended her boyfriend on social media, tweeting, “I know you, I know the truth. Such sadness in my heart. I love your kind gentle soul. Bless.”
On Monday actress Kristina Cohen accused the 30-year-old of raping her three years ago. In a lengthy post on Facebook Kristina says she recalls meeting the actor at his apartment along with her then-boyfriend who was a producer. She claims she woke up after having a nap in the guest bedroom with the actor on top of her with his finger entering her body. “I told him to stop but he was strong. I fought him off as hard I could but he grabbed my face and hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*ck me.”
The morning after her post, Westwick took to Instagram to respond, saying, “I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed any rape.”
A few days later another woman, Aurélie Wynn, came forward, with a similar story. She says the actor raped her in 2014 at his apartment. Writing on Facebook she explains how she “said no” but he “pushed me face-down. I was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit which he ripped. I was in complete shock. I am also very tiny.”
Ed has yet to respond to Aurélie’s claims. According to Just Jared, a rep of the actor hung up the phone when called for comment.
LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division sex crimes unit is investigating Kristina’s rape claim, Mirror.co.uk writes.
