‘House of Cards’ Star Kevin Spacey Hit with Additional Accusations of Sexual Misconduct
As if Netflix did not already have enough problems with its recent settlement of a sexual harassment case, actor Kevin Spacey, the two-time Oscar-winner who launched the streaming network into the original programming business with House of Cards, is facing additional accusations of sexual misconduct.
Sunday night, 46-year-old actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advanceon him as a 14-year-old boy. Spacey did not deny the allegations. In a statement, the 58 year-old apologized, said he did not remember the incident and blamed anything that might have happened on “drunken behavior.”
Spacey also came out as a “gay man” and suggested there might be other allegations in his past. “I know that there are other stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy,” he wrote.
About 12 hours later the Daily Mailreports on additional allegations against Spacey. Former news anchor Heather Unruh said Spacey attacked someone “close to her.” She refused to elaborate about the identity of the alleged victim but called for an investigation.
