An American model has accused Hamed Wardak, the son of the former defense minister of Afghanistan of raping her, it has been reported.

The 29-year-old model, Sarah Goolden has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the son of Abdul Rahim Wardak in Manhattan Federal Court.

Goolden has claimed in her lawsuit that Hamed Wardak raped her after she rejected him, according to the lawsuit seen by New York Post.

The model has also claimed that Hamed attacked her twice during a trip the two took to Miami of United States on 4th of July last year.

She has also claimed that Hamed is a club-going partier who’s not shy about spreading his money around.

According to Goolden, Hamed lured her by buying gifts to her. “Of course, he always told me there were no strings attached. He uses his money as a tool to influence almost everybody in his life,” she added.

Meanwhile, Hamed Wardak’s lawyer has rejected the claims by Goolden as ‘entirely false’ and accused her of “attempting to manipulate the current political and anti-immigrant climate to her tactical advantage.”

This comes as the model has admitted in the lawsuit that she agreed to date Wardak after he courted her for years.

However, Goolden has claimed that Wardak became violent during the first Independence holiday jaunt which followed almost a month into the romance.

In other parts of the lawsuit, Goolden has claimed that she accepted the public proposal of Wardak fearing a violent outburst but she tried to break things off privately.

According to court papers seen by the Post, Wardak threatened Goolden to “ruin” her life, have her followed, “make her look like a con-artist,” and would file litigation to drown her in legal fees after she left him.

Wardak has also filed two lawsuits against Goolden, one accusing her of faking their relationship in a bid to get money, and a second seeking the return of $20,000 he claims he paid for her sick dog.
