THE Fast And The Furious director Rob Cohen has hit out at his transgender daughter’s claim that he assaulted her as a two-year-old.
Valkyrie Weather – born Kyle Cohen – made the bombshell accusation in a public Facebook post on Thursday.

Rex Features But Cohen denied the allegations
She wrote: “When I was very young, Rob used my body for his own sexual gratification.
“My mother witnessed one of the assaults when I was between two and two and a half years old, and has since confirmed what she saw.
“This fact has cost me more than I could ever convey here.”
Dad-of-four Cohen – who directed the 2001 hit as well as 2008’s The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – hit out at the claims in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.
He described the claim as “untrue and unimaginable”, adding “no matter what anyone says or tries to convince her was the case when she was a child.

“When Valkyrie’s (Kyle at the time) mom and I were getting divorced, she accused me during the custody court proceedings of many things, including a similar accusation to this one.
“After a very long trial, the court appointed psychiatrist awarded me full custody, in spite of these false accusations.
“Recently, my child chose to live her life authentically and transition to the woman she is today.
“When she wrote me about it, I told her that she has my continued love and support, as well as how beautiful and brave I think she is.
“I may have not been a perfect husband. I am, as all of us are, a person and a parent who has made mistakes along the way, but never ever would I harm any of my children, or any child for that matter.”
He also denied the allegation that he had raped another woman.
Valkyrie’s post continued: “Rob has also raped at least one other woman, in her sleep. I know this because he would occasionally tell the story as an anecdote.

“Presumably in an effort to turn me into the straight son that he wanted me to be, Rob took me to see sex workers and establishments in Thailand and The Czech Republic starting when I was as young as 13/14 years old.
“While Rob will in all likelihood escape criminal justice, I demand that my story be heard. I am not seeking financial restitution, nor do I have a career to promote.
“My greatest hope is that others who have been hurt by Rob Cohen feel that they are able to come forward as well.”
