    Los Angeles prosecutors have declined to file charges against "Gossip Girl" star Ed Westwick after an investigation was conducted into rape allegations involving three women in 2014.

    Prosecutors released a document outlining its decision on Friday after celebrity website TMZ reported the decision involving the British actor.

    Westwick's manager did not return a request for comment Friday.

    In two of the instances, prosecutors said there were no witnesses who could sufficiently corroborate the allegations to support a case. In the third instance, the woman did not cooperate with investigators.
