Famous French writer arrested following rape allegations: what is known

Frédéric Beigbeder arrested after rape allegations

The famous French writer Frédéric Beigbeder was detained by police in Pau, France. It was assumed that this could be related to drug possession and use as the celebrity had been arrested on these charges before. However, according to insiders, this time the author of the cult provocative novels Love Lasts Three Years and 99 Francs was taken to the police station because of rape.

Le Parisien writes about it. According to the newspaper, Beigbeder was summoned for questioning at the Pau police station at about 9 a.m. on December 12.

A preliminary investigation into the rape case has been launched. The writer is being held in custody. This information was confirmed by prosecutor Rodolphe Jarry. No other details were provided by law enforcement agencies.

Frédéric Beigbeder was accused of rape

However, insiders told reporters that a complaint against the writer was allegedly filed by a young girl last summer. The name of the alleged victim has not been disclosed. She claims that she met Beigbeder in a hotel room, where they had "sexual relations" twice: the first time by mutual consent, the second time without consent.

Beigbeder was accompanied to the police station by his lawyer, but neither he nor the writer himself has commented on the issue yet.

As we have already noted, Beigbeder was previously arrested for possession and use of cocaine. It happened on the Champs Elysees in 2008. In 2022, the writer publicly admitted his guilt for the first time and assured that he had "said goodbye" to drugs.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA also wrote that French actress Hélène Darras accused her colleague Gérard Depardieu of sexual abuse. They both played roles in the film Disco, during the creation of which this terrible situation occurred. The actress compared Gérard's attitude to her during filming as the one to a piece of meat.
