«Mr. McGregor remains steadfast in his denial of all allegations made by a guest on his ship,» McGregor’s spokeswoman, Karen Kessler, said in a statement.

The unnamed woman initially told police that she was attacked by another man, according to Spanish media reports at the time. A case was not immediately filed against McGregor at the time because he was not accused of attacking the woman at the time.

However, due to new complaints filed by the unidentified woman, the case will now be investigated in Ibiza.

The woman said she attended McGregor’s birthday party at a nightclub and was later invited to the yacht, Ultima Hora reported. She claimed that McGregor recognized her as someone she knew from the neighborhood she grew up with in Dublin.

The woman jumped into the water to escape and was later rescued by a Red Cross boat, according to Ultima Hora.

Ultima Hora also reported that she did not initially accuse McGregor of attacking her because she was in shock, had no money or a cell phone with her, and was only wearing her bathing suit.
