Authorities Investigating Rape Claims Against ‘Suicide Squad’ Actor Joel Kinnaman After He Secured Restraining Order Against Model
Joel Kinnaman has claimed that the alleged victim in the case, model Bella Davis, had been “attempting to extort him” from money and other valuables — a claim she has denied.
Swedish authorities are investigating rape allegations against “Suicide Squad” actor Joel Kinnaman less than a week after the actor secured a restraining order against a model he said was extorting him.
“The prosecutor got the case today and has hardly been able to look at it,” a spokesperson for the Swedish Prosecution Authority told E! News. “She has said there is need for further investigative matters before she can make a decision.”
The spokesperson believes the alleged victim in the rape case is Bella Davis, also sometimes known as Gabriella Magnusson, a model who Kinnaman secured a temporary restraining order against on Friday, according to E! News.
Kinnaman's attorney Patricia Glaser told the news outlet that Davis only made the allegations after Kinnaman had secured the restraining order for allegedly trying to extort him—a claim the actor made publicly himself last week on Instagram.
“Earlier this morning, I filed a restraining order against a woman who has been threatening to physically harm me and my family and loved ones, and attempting to extort money and other things of value from me,” he wrote.
Kinnaman alleged Davis, whom he said he had a romantic relationship with in 2018 when he was single, had wanted money and his help securing connections to foster her career.
“While it is mortifying and scary to come forward about all of this, what feels worse is enduring the escalating daily threats of physical harm to me and my loved ones and threats to go to the press with fabricated, vile rumors unless I agree to a list of demands that includes money, Hollywood connections, helping to secure a work visa, a verified Instagram page, a Wikipedia page, a photo shoot with Sports Illustrated, an additional $400,000 USD for an apartment and more,” he wrote.
Glaser said Kinnaman “will be cooperating with police to clear his name” in the rape investigation.
Davis responded on her own Instagram by posting a news article and seemingly questioning the existence of a restraining order.
“Stop lying I don’t even have a restraining order and don’t worry I don’t wanna breath the same air as you idiot !,” she wrote.
Davis also told Fox News that Kinnaman’s versions of events was not accurate and accused him of twisting the truth.
She told E! News after Kinnaman made the claims on Instagram that he “should have an Oscar for how he’s writing and acting. I have never ever threatened or asked for money.”
