Ed Westwick has once again been accused of rape.
The former Gossip Girl star, who was first alleged to have committed this heinous act back in November, now faces allegations from a woman named Haley Camille Freedman.
Per TMZ, Freedman writes in a new lawsuit that she attended a gathering at Westwick’s home in 2014.
She was among a large group of people at the time, but remained behind after everyone else left for the evening.
Freedman acknowledges that she and the actor started having consensual sex, but that she grew hesitant when he asked her to strangle him, spit on him and slap him.
After she refused to do so, Freeman says Westwick did these things to her.
And that’s not all…
Freedman goes on to explain that she fell asleep after this awkward encounter and spent the night at Westwick’s residence.
She was taking a shower in the morning when Westwick entered the bathroom and forced himself upon her sexually.
The legal documents detail how Freedman was groggy and out of it for two days, stranded at Westwick’s house and unsure where she was.
She says she did not have cell phone service.
Westwick allegedly promised to drive Freedman to her car, but then kept delaying this favor so that he could keep having sex with her, resulting in bruising and bleeding, according to the lawsuit.
But here’s where things get even weirder…
Freedman is NOT suing Westwick.
Her legal beef is with ex-business partner who she says cut her off as an aspiring stylist because she wanted to make these allegations public three years ago.
Freedman claims she even gave an interview to a media outlet, but Westwick’s team managed to stop it from being published.
By painting her, via a series of text messages as “unstable, disturbed, jealous and promiscuous.”
She adds in the lawsuit that Westwick threatened to sue her, alleging he had proof she was lying because he had loved ones in town visiting his house at the time she claims she was being held captive.
It’s a weird story, to be sure.
But it’s actually the third time now that a woman has come out with sexual assault allegations against the actor.
He is under investigation for at least one of these incidents and said the following after the second charge was leveled, by an actress named Aurélie Wynn:
“I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on a woman. I certainly have never committed rape.”
