According to Le Parisien, via translation, Valentine Monnier said the “extremely violent” rape occurred in a ski chalet in Switzerland.
While a spokesperson for Polanski has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment, Polanski’s French attorney Hervé Témime told Le Parisien that Polanski strongly denies the allegations in a statement Friday and a separate statement on Sunday.
“Mr Polanski disputes in the strongest terms this rape accusation,” Temime told Afp. “We are working on the legal action to bring against this publication,” he added.
“I had no connection with him, no staff, no professional and hardly knew him,” Monnier said. “It was extremely violent, after a skiing trip, in his cottage in Gstaad (Switzerland). He hit me, beat me until I surrendered, and then raped me with all the vicissitudes.
