Kevin Spacey Has Been Accused Of Sexual Assault By A Number Of Other Men
The ‘House of Cards’ star – who, earlier this week, was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance towards him when he was just 14 years old in 1986 – has been hit by a fresh wave of allegations that he flashed or tried to grope three guys, but had his advances spurned.
Documentary maker Tony Montana claims the ‘American Beauty’ actor groped him at the Coronet Pub in Los Angeles in 2003.
He told RadarOnline.com: “I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me.
“He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package.
“I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it. I paid for my drink and got away from him.”
But Tony, who was in his 30s at the time, alleged Spacey then followed him to the bathroom, so he “pushed” him and told the “drunk” actor’s friend to take him home.
He never saw the ‘Usual Suspects’ after that but claimed the incident left him with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
He said: “I never talked to anyone about it except for therapists. I had PTSD for six months after. It was an emasculating thing for someone to do to me. Whenever I went to the bar I would see if he was there or have my back against the wall.”
And Daniel Beal claims the actor flashed his genitals and said “It’s big, isn’t it?” when he was on a break from working in the bar at the Goodwood Park Hotel, West Sussex, in 2010.
The barman was just 19 at the time and claimed Spacey then followed him back to the bar and offered him his expensive watch to “keep him quiet”.
He told The Sun newspaper: “Every time I tried to give him a drink he’d touch my hand in a weird way. He was drinking more and more — he got through a bottle of Jack Daniels.”
According to Dan, Spacey followed him out on one cigarette break to ask if he wanted to “smoke weed” with him, and then exposed himself on a bench when he went outside again.
He said: “Before I had a chance to do anything he got his d*** out. I said ‘What the f*** are you doing?’ He said ‘It’s big, isn’t it?’ He leaned over and tried to pull my hand towards it. I went back inside.”
He then insisted on trading his £5,000 IWC Portofino watch for Dan’s £20 plastic Casio but the barman said he felt “dirty” wearing it, and sold it the next day for £3,200 – only for the ‘Baby Driver’ actor’s team to ask for it back, so he said he’d lost it.
Mexican actor Robert Cavazos claimed he was one of a number of younger men who had encountered the 58-year-old star at the bar of London’s Old Vic theatre – where he was artistic director from 2004 to 2015 – and had unwanted advances made, while he also alleged the actor was infamous for throwing champagne picnics on stage for those he was interested in.
In a translated Facebook post, he revealed: “I myself had a couple of nasty encounters with Spacey that were on the verge of being called harassment…
“There are many of us who have a “Kevin Spacey story.” It seems that so long as there was under 30 around, that was all it took to get Mr. Spacey’s interest…
” I don’t remember how many people told me the same story: Spacey invited them to meet with him to ‘talk about their careers.’
“When they came to the theater, he had prepared a picnic with champagne on the stage, and everything beautifully lit. Every story varied in how far the picnic went, but the technique was the same.
“More common was that he would be at the bar of his theater, squeezing whoever would attract his attention. That’s how he touched me the second time. I never let him, but I know some people who were afraid to put a stop to it.”
The Old Vic have expressed “deep dismay” about the allegations.
They said in a statement: “Inappropriate behaviour by anyone working at The Old Vic is completely unacceptable.”
Following Anthony’s allegations earlier this week, Spacey insisted he couldn’t remember the encounter, but apologised for his “deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour” and confirmed that, following years of speculation about his sexuality, he now “lives as a gay man”.
Netflix subsequently announced the cancellation of his show ‘House of Cards’ after the sixth season, but they have now suspended production “until further notice”.
And the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have announced he will no longer be honoured with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award.
