Gérard Dépardieu has been charged with rape and sexual assault.

The 72-year-old French actor has been accused of attacking the young actress in August 2018 on a number of occasions.

A judicial source has confirmed to Agence France-Presse that Dépardieu had criminal charges filed against him in December, after the initial accusations were dropped due to lack of evidence.

It has been claimed that the two rapes took place in Dépardieu’s home in 2018 as well as a number of sexual assaults around a similar time. It is believed the rapes took place on August 7 and August 13.

Whilst the young woman is thought to be an actress, it is believed she attended the property as a family friend of the ‘Green Card’ actor.
