Salling accused of rape on top of child porn charges

MARK Salling has been accused of rape.

The former 'Glee' actor - who is currently awaiting trial on child pornography charges - allegedly forced himself on a woman he had been dating "for a few months" almost four years ago after she changed her mind about wanting sex.

According to TMZ, the 22-year-old alleged victim filed a police report in April this year, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney are deciding whether to file charges against him.

The woman reportedly claimed in the police report they had entered a room to have sex but she then changed her mind and said "I can't do this", and the 34-year-old star refused to stop.

The disgraced actor has denied both child pornography charges and is currently on $150,000 bail awaiting trial.

He has been ordered to stay at least 100 feet away from schools, parks, arcades and many other places of that sort, while his passport has been surrendered and any devices that can connect to the internet have to be approved by the authorities.

The court also instructed Salling to wear a GPS device so he can be located at any time.

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that the actor was cut from 'Gods and Secrets' after he was indicted on the child pornography charges.

Director Adi Shankar said in a statement: "'Gods and Secrets' will be moving forward without Mark Salling. He has been cut from the mini-series, I will personally be paying for the reshoots, and I hope that Mark finds inner peace. Furthermore, a percentage of profits from the project will go to a charity for abused children.

"Hopefully some good will come of all of this and I pray that when the dust has settled, the hyper-connectivity of the information age that has brought to light the transgressions of several public figures, will also force us to look within our society to identify and eliminate the root cause of the rape culture we exist in."
