Following the accounts of four women who allege that they were raped and sexually assaulted by Ed Westwick, the 30-year-old actor is now officially under investigation.
“I can confirm that a case was presented to our office involving Ed Westwick,” a spokesperson for the DA’s office told the publication.
“The matter is under review. The District Attorney’s office does not identify victims of sex crimes and, therefore, cannot provide any information on who the allegations involve.”
Prior to the investigation, Westwick had defended himself against the allegations on social media, but those posts have since been deleted.
While quick to post denials of any wrongdoing at the time, he was reportedly advised to remove the posts by his lawyer in the wake of the investigation.
