"It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct," Westwick wrote after being accused by a second actress of rape Wednesday.

"I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible," the "Gossip Girl" alum continued.

Westwick is facing rape allegations from actress Kristina Cohen who filed a police report Tuesday at the LAPD's Hollywood Division and Aurelie Wynnn, who went by the name Auralie Marie Cao during her acting career.

Both women shared their stories on Facebook and say Westwick forced himself on them in 2014.

Piven has been accused of groping former Playboy model and actress Ariane Bellamar on two separate occasions.

Actress Cassidy Freeman also came forward with accusations stating that the "Entourage" alum also sexually assaulted her.

"Let me begin by saying that the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated, Piven wrote as part of a lengthy statement where he discusses taking a polygraph test to prove his innocence.

"We seem to be entering dark times -- allegations are being printed as facts and lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence. I hope we can give people the benefit of a doubt before we rush to judgment," he continued.

"Continuing to tear each other down and destroy careers based on mere allegations is not productive on any level. I hope we can use this moment to begin constructive dialogue on these issues, which are real and need to be addressed," Piven concluded.
