‘Turned on me’: Third woman accuses Ed Westwick of assault

British actor, Ed Westwick, has been accused of sexual assault by a third woman in recent days.

Rachel Eck has come forward with her own allegations against the Gossip Girl star just a week after Kristina Cohen and Aurélie Wynn claimed they were attacked by Westwick in separate incidents.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Rachael claimed that on the night before the Academy Awards in 2014, she received a text message from her ex-boyfriend, Kaine Harling, inviting her to join him in a Hollywood hotel.

Upon arriving, Rachel, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, was greeted by Kaine and introduced to Westwick who she claims she wasn't familiar with at the time.

Rachel recalls that the night immediately turned sour when she declined Westwick's invitation to invite a friend of hers to join them in the hotel.

"When I didn’t bring a girl for him he turned his sights on me.” she told BuzzFeed.

According to Rachel, Westwick attempted to kiss her, push her against the wall and grope her breasts whenever her ex-boyfriend left the room.

“Ed then pulled me onto the bed and aggressively groped me,” she said. “I shoved him off as quickly as I could and left. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a situation like that in my entire life."

Rachel, whose claims have been reinforced by individuals she confided in at the time, asserts that she chose to speak publicly after learning that she wasn't alone in her encounter with the actor.

Westwick has strenuously denied the allegations which have been levelled against him.
