Eck claimed Westwick “aggressively groped” her inside a swanky Hollywood hotel room in 2014 — the same year that two other women, Kristina Cohen and Aurélie Wynn, were allegedly raped by the actor.

The actor, who was fired from the BBC’s Ordeal by Innocence after the allegations surfaced, tweeted at the time that the additional allegations were untrue.

“It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct,” he wrote. “I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.”
