Rachel Zegler Comments on Allegation Against Ansel Elgort

In June of 2020, an allegation was made against Ansel Elgort saying that he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl back in 2014.

The allegation was made by a young woman named Gabby and was dated back to 2014 when he was 20 years old. Ansel responded to the allegation in a statement on his social media.

In a new interview, Ansel‘s West Side Story co-stars Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose and Rita Moreno were asked about the allegation against him. Rachel portrayed Maria in West Side Story opposite Ansel‘s Tony.

Rachel told THR when asked, “We made a movie two and a half years ago, and a lot has gone on in the world since then. A lot has changed very publicly, and privately as well. There’s been a lot of awakening. You just hope that the people involved are okay, that they are asked in a respectful manner and that they are given the opportunity to answer for themselves.”

Rita said, “I think it would have been absolutely horrendous and wrong for anyone to take sides in that matter. It’s not for me to make those judgments.”

Ariana added, “Nobody really knows what’s going on in anyone’s head. Only the people who were involved in that situation know what actually went down.”
