Cohen has said in a detailed Facebook post how it happened at Westwood’s place where her unnamed ‘producer’ boyfriend took her.

Her post reads: “So I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep, I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me.

“I told him to stop, but he was strong.

“I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face with his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*** me.

“I was paralysed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.”

Cohen goes further in the story and tells how her ‘producer’ boyfriend threatened that if she ever came forward, she can forget about her acting career altogether.

“The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant. Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career. Saying there’s no way I can go around saying Ed “raped” me and that I don’t want to be “that girl.””

Following the allegations, Westwick used Instagram and Twitter to respond to the allegations and stated that he ‘doesn’t know that woman’.
