They were each invited to “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick’s home by a mutual friend.
When their Uber driver dropped them off, they drank and hung out at the house for hours. Eventually, they each went to a spare bedroom to sleep. Then, the women both alleged in separate interviews with the Los Angeles Times, the British actor forced himself on them.
A third woman, who asked that her name not be published, told the Times that Westwick grabbed and slapped her backside at FYF Fest near downtown Los Angeles that same year.
“You don’t know what you’re missing,” she said he told her, after she declined to buy him a drink.
Another, Rachel Eck, told BuzzFeed News that Westwick groped her that same year at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood, where she showed up to hang out.
A publicist for Westwick did not respond to the allegations. In two Twitter posts, Westwick adamantly denied the allegations.
