Another woman has accused “Gossip Girl” alum Ed Westwick of sexual assault.

Rachel Eck claims that the actor assaulted her the night before the Academy Awards in 2014 after being introduced by her ex-boyfriend, Australian film producer Kaine Harling

Eck, who was a 23-year-old executive assistant at the time, told BuzzFeed that she went to a villa at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood in March 2014 where Harling and Westwick were waiting for her.

She claims that Westwick asked her to bring another friend, but she showed up alone, at which point he “turned his sights on me.”

“It got worse and he got more handsy” as the night went on, she told BuzzFeed, even after she told Westwick that she was dating Harling.

Eck is the third woman to accuse Westwick of sexual assault.

The first, Kristina Cohen, claimed that Westwick first tried to digitally penetrate her, then raped her after she resisted.

"I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f--k me. I was paralyzed. I couldn't speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me," she wrote on Facebook.

LAPD is investigating her claims, which Westwick denied.

A second actress, Aurélie Wynn, who went by Aurelie Marie Cao when she was acting, claimed that Westwick raped her in July 2014.

He also denied those accusations.
