She alleges that Knepper reached up her skirt and grabbed her crotch so hard that she was left bleeding, after going to his trailer to drop off some clothes.
Ms Bertram also claims that Knepper threw her against a wall and told her "I'm going to f**k your brains out", but she managed to push him away and escape the situation.
She said that she confided in her assistant at the time.
Knepper released the following statement on Instagram, denying the allegations.
Over the past few weeks, my wife and I have discussed the pain women have experienced and the bravery they have shown in coming forward. I am shocked and devastated to be falsely accused of violence against a woman. That's just not who I am. To those who have reached out today with words of support and encouragement, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
