Floodgates Open On Kevin Spacey: Fourth Man Comes Forward
Kevin Spacey is no longer an unusual suspect as a flood of sexual harassment allegations has unleashed upon him.
An actor — at least the fourth person to come forward — has alleged that he woke up to find Spacey asleep “holding him in his underwear” in the 1980s.
The actor, who didn’t reveal his identity, told Victoria Derbyshire of BBC that Spacey had asked him to share his bed, but when he refused, the House of Cards actor started to sob in his bed.
The man, who was just 16 during the incident, claimed the unwanted advance left him traumatized.
"I was uncomfortable at best, traumatized at worst,” he said.
"He was in his underwear, I was fully clothed. I supposed it was some sort of New York theater actor 'good morning'," the actor revealed.
The man said they first met in 1984 at a summer theater, with exchanging letters.
The teen then visited Spacey's New York City home to spend a weekend.
The man claimed when Spacey showed him around the sites, the renowned actor rubbed his arm, put an arm around his shoulder, and then asked him to share his bed.
The man refused the proposition and went to sleep on the sofa, but added: "As we went to sleep, he was sobbing from his bed."
He then claimed Spacey backed off after spending the second day together. He confessed he now believes the American Beauty actor was grooming him.
The new claims follow the allegations made by the Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey made an unwanted sexual advance on him after a party when the younger actor was just 14 years old.
In a statement posted on Twitter, the two-time Oscar winner said he had no memory of the incident but went on to apologize Rapp “for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
Actor and director Tony Montana and Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos have also accused Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment.
Montana alleged Spacey “grabbed my whole package” in a Los Angeles pub in 2003 while Roberto claimed he had a couple of unpleasant encounters on the edge of being called harassment.
Netflix has indefinitely suspended production on the House of Cards in the wake of the recent accusations against Spacey.
Spacey’s upcoming film All the Money in the World is still set to premiere at the AFI Fest on November 16, despite the accusations.
