The Paris public prosecutor's office is looking into allegations that the 69-year-old "Cyrano de Bergerac" star raped a 22-year-old this month in one of his Paris residences, a judicial source told Agence France Presse on Thursday.

Depardieu denied the allegations on several occasions, professing his love for Russian culture and people.

He added that Depardieu was "shaken" by the allegations. Her agent said she was left "devastated" by the attack.

And in 2011 he had to apologise for urinating into a bottle on a flight from Paris to Dublin after being told by the flight crew that he would have to wait at least 15 minutes until he could use the onboard lavatories.

Temime confirmed that the French actor knows the woman in question, but denied he was with her during the dates mentioned in the complaint.
