One more victim of assault

French star Gérard Depardieu has been accused of rape by a 22-year-old woman, CNN reports. “The Paris public prosecutor’s office is making a preliminary investigation on counts of rape and sexual assault,” the Paris prosecutor spokesman stated.

The French woman claims the sexual assault and rape took place at his Paris home between August 7 and 13.

He’s known for the roles in The Last Metro (1980),  Cyrano de Bergerac (1990), The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), Life of Pi (2012) and many more. He’s been nominated for Oscar and the Best Actor in a Leading Role César 17 times during his career and won it twice (1981 and 1991).

Gérard Depardieu’s lawyer Herve Temime says “I had a long meeting with Gerard and am convinced his innocence will be established.

“I have strong elements to show that no offense took place. I regret that this investigation was not kept secret as usual,” he added.

His client, Depardieu “totally denies any assault, any rape and any criminal act.” He confirmed he knows the woman who accuses him but denies he was with her during the dates in the filled lawsuit.

In 2013, Vladimir Putin granted the French actor Russian citizenship as he left France because of high taxes.

Recently, it became known that Asia Argento sexually assaulted a young actor, Jimmy Bennett, who was just 17 when the incident occurred. After the incident, Bennett began to feel “extremely confused, mortified, and disgusted,” and later it ruined his career and life. To hide this in times of #MeToo rise, Argento paid him $380,000. In a letter to Argento in April, her lawyer says money was paid to “help Mr. Bennett”
