Taiwanese-American Actress Accuses ‘Gossip Girl’ Actor Ed Westwick of Rape From 2014

Another victim emerged just days after actress Kristina Cohen shared her story on Facebook regarding her sexual assault encounter with “Gossip Girl” actor Ed Westwick.

Aurelie Wynn, a Taiwanese-American former actress who was also known by her stage name as Aurelie Marie Cao, alleges that Westwick raped her back in August 2014, according to her Facebook post.

Wynn said that the actor requested an Uber for her to be driven to his rented house in Glendower Estates before the incident. She was invited there by a girlfriend who was dating Westwick’s roommate at the time, a cast member on the FOX TV show “Glee”.

The sexual assault allegedly happened after the group decided to get some sleep at 5 a.m.

And like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight, Wynn recounted in her Facebook post.

I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock, I am also very tiny. When it was over I got my cellphone and found that the girl that had invited me had left or got kicked out. I had terrible service in the estate without access to the wifi and had to get another friend to get me an Uber out of there while Ed was passed out. The house is so big I took a video of my experience getting out of the house since it’s literally a maze.

Wynn then claims she called the man she was seeing at the time, former “Glee” star Mark Salling, about what happened.

According to Wynn, Salling pretended he didn’t know who Westwick was, and then broke up with her after blaming her for the incident.

My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, to not be ‘that girl’ and that no one would believe me and think I was just out trying to get my 10 seconds of fame,” Wynn wrote. “My mother and best friend were flying into town for my birthday the next week and I didn’t want this to ruin my birthday and their trip either.

Westwick released an official statement about the matter a day after Wynn’s story broke out in the media. The 30-year-old English actor wrote in his Twitter post:

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.
