Gerard Depardieu Faces New Sexual Assault Complaint

A renowned set designer has recently filed a complaint against iconic French actor Gerard Depardieu, alleging sexual assault during a film shoot in 2021. Depardieu, already facing rape charges in a separate case, vehemently denies all accusations, despite more than a dozen women accusing him of sexual harassment and assault.

The complainant’s lawyer, Carine Durrieu-Diebolt, officially submitted the new complaint to the Paris public prosecutor’s office on Friday. The charges include sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. However, the prosecutor’s office has not yet confirmed the receipt of the complaint, and Depardieu’s legal representatives have chosen to remain silent on the matter.

According to her, on September 10, 2021, Depardieu not only made vulgar remarks but also physically assaulted her by forcefully grabbing and inappropriately touching her waist, stomach, and breasts. The distressing incidents were only halted when a vigilant bodyguard intervened on the set of the film “Les volets verts” in Paris.
