Prosecutors want to reopen Gérard Depardieu rape probe

French prosecutors want to reopen an investigation into rape allegations against actor Gérard Depardieu, according to reports.

Paris prosecutors are asking for a new investigation into the famed French actor, 71, after the alleged victim sought to reopen a probe of the case under a legal provision that allows an “injured party” to request a review of their case.

The unidentified victim, a French actress, was 22 when the alleged 2018 rape took place in one of Depardieu’s homes.

The probe was dropped last year for lack of proof, prosecutors said.

Depardieu, a star in France, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. He became known to audiences in the US after starring in the 1990 comedy “Green Card.” He has both French and Russian citizenship.
