Gerard Depardieu accused of rape

French actor Gerard Depardieu has been accused of rape and sexual harassment.

Details of the case are not disclosed. Lawyer Depardieu said that his client "categorically denies involvement in any rape or harassment.

As the newspaper specifies, the charges against Depardieu were brought by a 22-year-old French actress and dancer. She told the police that she was raped twice by the artist in his Parisian house. According to her, the first incident occurred on August 7, the second on August 13, 2018.

That's when she reported it to the police. The Paris prosecutor's office investigated, but the case was closed in 2019. But the girl filed a new complaint. The case was reopened back in December, but it was reported only now.

The publication does not name the actress, but a source close to the investigation said that the girl and Depardieu were well acquainted: he promised to help start a film career.
