The allegations against Kevin Spacey (62) just don’t want to be silenced: Since allegations of sexual harassment against the Hollywood actor were made for the first time in 2017 in the course of the #metoo movement, voices have been raised again and again that weigh heavily on the Oscar winner make accusations.
The star actor, who plays the villain Frank Underwood in the hit series House of Cards and whose role was canceled following the serious allegations, is said to have a dark side in real life too. A dark side that is now enriched by another facet: As has just been announced, Spacey must once again answer to the court for sexual assault.
A New York judge denied Spacey’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by actor Anthony Rapp in 2020, according to the US broadcaster Law and Crime. A jury should decide the allegations of abuse in the 1980s, the judge ruled, according to court documents. Rapp explains that Spacey had become abusive at a party at his New York home in 1986. At that time Rapp was 14 years old. Spacey denies the allegations.
It was not until the end of May that Spacey was reported in Great Britain for sexual assaults against three men – the three cases are said to have occurred between 2005 and 2013, according to the British public prosecutor’s office in London.
