A Royal Accuses Kevin Spacey Of Sexual Harassment
Could things get any worse for Kevin Spacey? The multiple allegations of sexual harassment that caused him his job at House of Cards and the release of his film Gore on Netflix, are now beefed up by a member of the Norwegian Royal Family.
Ari Behn, 45, accuses Spacey of groping his testicles after hosting the Nobel Prize ceremony in Oslo ten years ago alongside Uma Thurman. Ari Behn is the ex-husband of Princess Martha Louise of Norway, who is fourth in line to the throne. The couple has three children together.
Ari described the incident during a radio interview, the Sun has reported:
“He was sitting right next to me.
“After five minutes, he says ‘Hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette’ — and then he takes me under the table in the middle of my balls.
“I got more than I bargained for.”
The author, who does not smoke, brushed the Hollywood star off by replying: “Eh? Maybe later.”
The new scandal comes right after UK theater The Old Vic finds 20 allegations of inappropriate behavior against Spacey, almost all from young men that were members of staff at the theater. The actor was the The Old Vic’s artistic director from 2004-2015.
The ball started rolling when actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of forcing himself on him when he was only 14 years old.
Ari Behn and Princess Martha Louise of Norway divorced last year after 14 years of marriage. Martha Louise said in August last year that they had “grown apart”, according to the Daily Mail. They have three children together, ages 13, 11 and eight.
Princess Martha Louise is also a writer like her ex-husband, and has written books in which she has claimed to have had contacts with angels.
