French actor Gerard Depardieu (“Cyrano de Bergerac”) has been charged with rape and sexual assault in connection with a 2018 case, Variety has confirmed.
The case against the 72-year-old actor was dropped in 2019 following a lack of evidence, but was reopened in 2020, and criminal charges were filed in December, according to a judicial source quoted by the AFP.
“Mr. Gerard Depardieu was indicted on Dec. 16, 2020 for allegations of rape and sexual assault. No custodial measures were taken against him,” a judicial source confirmed to Variety.
The victim is an actress in her 20s who accuses Depardieu of raping and assaulting her at his Paris home in August 2018, the agency reports.
The actor is apparently not in custody, but under judicial supervision. His lawyer, Herve Temime, told AFP that Depardieu “completely rejects the accusations.”
It would be like Jabba the Hutt raping Princess Leia.
Oh great I just gave someone an idea for a DeepFakes porn project.
