A third woman named Rachel Eck has now come forward to accuse the actor Ed Westwick of sexually assaulting her.
Rachel told BuzzFeed in a story posted online on Tuesday, November 14, that the 30-year-old Gossip Girl star assaulted her in 2014 the night before the Academy Awards after they were introduced by her ex-boyfriend Kaine Harling who is an Australian film producer.
A 23-year-old executive assistant at the time, Rachel arrived at a villa at the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood at around 2:30 in a.m. to meet up with Kaine and Ed.

As per the report, Ed Westwick asked her to invite a friend to hang out with them but when she didn’t come as it was late and her friends were all asleep, “he turned his sights on me,” Rachel told the website.
Rachel claims that when Ed left the room, which was happened several times over the course of seven hours, Ed would “try to kiss me or kind of push me up against a wall.”
She said that she pushed him off and told Ed that she was dating Kaine, but as the hours went on “it got worse and more handsy.” Rachel also claimed that when she told her boyfriend about the incident, he just brushed it off.
She finally decided to leave but also claimed that Ed wanted to apologize to her first before she went into his bedroom to hear what he had to say.
