CNN – Grard Depardieu is the subject of a formal investigation in France for allegations of rape and sexual assault, judicial sources confirmed to CNN. The movie star has been under investigation since December of last year, they said.
The complainant is a young actress who accused the actor of multiple rapes and sexual assaults in the summer of 2018, the sources added.
Depardieu’s attorney, Herv Temime, told CNN that the actor disputes the allegations of wrongdoing and recalls the presumption of innocence and that the case was initially dropped last June. The case was recently reopened by the courts.
In 2018, the French actor was accused of rape and sexual assault by a 22-year-old woman, triggering a “preliminary investigation” according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.
In the French court system, a formal investigation follows if officials find reason to pursue the case.
Temime said in 2018 when Depardieu was first charged that his client was “shocked” by the charge and “totally denies any assault, rape and foul play.”
He then added: “I have strong elements to show that no offense has taken place”, and that the offense was “the opposite” of Depardieu’s personality.
The complaint was filed on August 27 and went to the Paris prosecutor’s office on August 29.
“I regret that this investigation was not kept secret as usual,” Temime added.
Also in 2018, Temime confirmed that Depardieu knew the woman who accused him, but denied being with her on the dates mentioned in the complaint.
Depardieu is known for his roles in films like “Green Card”, “The Man in the Iron Mask” and “Life of Pi”. He was also nominated for an Oscar in 1991 for his lead role in “Cyrano de Bergerac”.
He was granted Russian citizenship by Vladimir Putin after he said he would give up his French passport to protest the government’s plans to raise taxes on the richest.
