Toxicological blood tests carried out on an actress who accused French film director Luc Besson of having raped her at a hotel in Paris were negative, a source close to the investigation said Monday.
The 27-year-old woman, a model and actress, lodged a complaint a day after she met earlier this month with Besson, who has denounced the allegation as 
“fantasist accusations”.
 
She did not claim to have been drugged but blood tests were conducted to examine all possibilities, according to another source close to the investigation.
 
The allegation against Besson, who notably directed “The Big Blue”, “Leon” and “The Fifth Element”, comes amid a wave of accusations of sexual misconduct against men in the entertainment industry since the fall of US producer Harvey Weinstein.
