Ed Westwick will not be prosecuted over sexual assault allegations
Ed Westwick will not be prosecuted over three rape and sexual assault allegations, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office has confirmed.
The actor was accused of raping two women and sexually assaulting a third back in November 2019. He has denied all allegations.
Actress Kristina Cohen was the first to speak out against Westwick, alleging that he raped her at his LA home in a detailed Facebook post. Fellow actress Aurélie Wynn later accused theGossip Girlalum of rape while Rachel Eck accused him of sexual assault.
Despite the fact that two of the alleged victims provided witnesses, investigators concluded that there was "insufficient evidence" to pursue the allegations.
According to theBBC, prosecutors said that the witnesses identified were "not able to provide information that would enable the prosecution to prove either incident beyond a reasonable doubt".
The 30-year-old has continuously denied the allegations branding them "unverified and provably untrue".
As a consequence to the ongoing legal battle, Westwick was removed from the BBC's Agatha Christie adaptation,Ordeal by Innocence, before it was pulled from scheduling altogether. Earlier this year, the actor was replaced by Christian Cooke who spent 12 days reshooting 35 scenes.
Meanwhile, filming for the second series of BBC Two comedyWhite Goldis currently on hold.
