Last year, actress Kristina Cohen accused Ed Westwick of rape. Now, stylist Haley Camille Freedman is accusing the Gossip Girl star of sexual assault. TMZ is reporting, based on court documents, that the 30-year-old imprisoned and sexually tortured her.
Warning: The allegations below include graphic details.
Haley alleges Westwick held her as a sex slave for 48 hours in 2014. She's claiming in a lawsuit that she went to his home with other people, they began having sex, and then things turned violent. Westwick requested that she strangle, slap, and spit on him. When she refused, he proceeded to strangle, slap, and hit her.
After the encounter, she fell asleep and stayed the night in his home. While in the shower, the next morning, Westwick proceeded to enter the shower and forced her to have sex with him.
The lawsuit explains how she ended up staying at Westwick's house for two days because she was unable to leave. She didn't know where she was and didn't have cell phone reception. During the harrowing two days, she suffered bruising, bleeding, and internal tears.
Sources close to Westwick say the woman is delusional and is trying to get her story picked up by the media. But, she isn't suing Westwick — she is suing those associated with him. "She is NOT suing Westwick. Freedman, an aspiring stylist, is going after former business partners whom she says cut her off because she wanted to go public with the allegations," the document reads. "She says she did an interview with a media outlet about her allegations but Westwick's team killed it. She says the media outlet got text messages that she says misrepresented her as 'unstable, disturbed, jealous and promiscuous.'"
These disturbing allegations come only months after the actor previously denied he raped Kristina. On Instagram, he described being accused of such crimes as "disheartening" and expressed commitment to clearing his name. Westwick has yet to respond to the most recent allegations — he also deleted any denials of the incidents from his social media accounts.
