Former “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick continues getting hit with sexual assault allegations after a third woman accused him of rape in a Tuesday interview.

Westwick, known for playing Chuck Bass on the hit series Gossip Girl, now stands accused of sexually assaulting executive assistant Rachel Eck, according to BuzzFeed News. Eck claims that she was sexually assaulted while visiting Australian film producer and ex-boyfriend Kaine Harling in 2014.

Eck alleges that the sexual assault happened when the three of them were hanging out at a hotel in West Hollywood, saying that Westwick would “try to kiss me or kind of push me up against the wall” whenever Harling left the room.

Eck allegedly “pushed off” the actor and eventually threatened to leave the hotel. Her ex then convinced her to stay, claiming that Westwick wanted to apologize.

“Ed then pulled me onto the bed and aggressively groped me,” Eck said, adding, “I shoved him off as quickly as I could and left.”

Actresses Kristina Cohen and Aurélie Wynn have also accused Westwick of rape. The actor denied both claims and said he was cooperating with the Los Angeles Police Department to clear his name.
