Disgraced Hollywood director Roman Polanski is facing fresh charges of sexual assault and is now being accused of violently raping a French woman in 1975 when she was only 18 years old. 

As Fox News reports:

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.


A representative for Polanski has denied the allegation. 

Allegations of sexual misconduct against the actor began when he was forced to flee the country in 1978 after he pleaded guilty to statutory rape. 

He has also long been defended and loved by members of the Hollywood establishment, as was pointed out by Donald Trump Jr. when he slammed 'View' co-host Whoopi Goldberg for defending him:
