French actor Gerard Depardieu is accused of rape and sexual harassment

French actor Gerard Depardieu has been charged with rape and sexual harassment. This was reported by the media, citing the agency France-Presse (AFP).

According to the sources close to the case, the charge was filed as early as December 16. The 22-year-old actress accused Depardieu of harassment and rape in the summer of 2018. The criminal case was closed, but she filed a new complaint.

In October 2020, it was reported that the court would reopen Depardieu’s rape case.

In 2018, it became known that Depardieu was suspected of rape and sexual harassment. At the time, Depardieu’s lawyer said that his client “categorically denies involvement in any rape or any harassment. The actress told police that she was raped twice by the artist at his home in Paris. According to her, the first incident occurred on August 7 and the second on August 13. The investigation was taken up by the prosecutor’s office in Paris.

The name of the actress is not disclosed, but a source close to the investigation claims that she and Depardieu knew each other well enough: he helped her to start a career in cinema.
