The 86-year-old director of "Rosemary's Baby," "Chinatown" and other films is being accused of raping a French woman, Valentine Monnier, in 1975 when she was 18 at Polanski's chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland, according to The Guardian via Le Parisien.
In the latest allegation levied against the Polish-born filmmaker, Monnier, now 62, detailed the alleged assault to the French publication, Le Parisien, saying that it occurred after the two finished a ski run, adding the alleged attack was “extremely violent.”
“I had no links with him, neither personal nor professional, and hardly knew him,” Monnier, a former model who worked in New York, told the local outlet...
Monnier then claimed that Polanski called for her and then allegedly threw himself on her, hit her and ripped off her clothing before forcefully trying to get her to swallow a pill. Polanski then allegedly raped Monnier and apologized to her afterward, claimed Monnier.
