Prosecutors have declined to file charges against an actor who’s familiar to TV viewers for his role on the teen drama series “Gossip Girl.” Ed Westwick, who played Chuck Bass on the CW series, was investigated by authorities in Los Angeles over rape allegations involving three women in 2014, the AP reports.

“In two of the instances, prosecutors said there were no witnesses who could sufficiently corroborate the allegations to support a case. In the third instance, the woman did not cooperate with investigators,” the AP reports.

The report adds: “Actress Kristina Cohen said in a Facebook post in November that Westwick sexually assaulted [her] in 2014 and she confirmed filing a police report against the actor.”

The British actor, 31, has denied forcing himself on any woman.
