More Allegations of Sexual Harassment Against Kevin Spacey Surface

A number of men have now stepped forward.

A number of men have come forward with new allegations accusing Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct, reports BBC.

U.S. filmmaker and director Tony Montana said that he was groped by the actor in a Los Angeles bar in 2003, and was left with PTSD for six months. He claims Spacey “forcefully” grabbed his crotch. Montana says he was in his thirties when the incident took place at the Coronet Bar in L.A., and that he removed Spacey’s hand and walked away. However, Montana claims the actor later followed him into the men’s toilets.

Other people have come forward with allegations against Spacey that took place in the UK while the actor was the artistic director at the Old Vic in London between 2004 and 2015.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theater, claims the two-time Oscar winner “routinely preyed” on young male actors, reports BBC. 

“It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr. Spacey to feel free to touch us,” Cavazos wrote in a Facebook post. He went on to say that he fended off two “unpleasant” advances from Spacey. According to Cavazos, other were too afraid to fend off advances.

A British man is also claiming Kevin Spacey exposed himself to him in 2010. The man says he was working at a hotel in West Sussex. According to his account, Spacey flashed his private parts, and said “It’s big, isn’t it?” and tried to get the then 19-year-old to touch him, according to BBC. Spacey also invited the man up to his room, but the former bartender rejected Spacey’s advances.

Another man told BBC that he was harassed by Spacey at 17-years-old. The man said he met Spacey at theater school and was later invited to New York by him. The man was sleeping on Spacey’s sofa, fully clothed, when he woke up to Spacey lying on top of him in his underwear.

The Netflix series House of Cards, which Spacey stars in, has been suspended following the sexual assault allegations. He has also been dropped as the recipient of a special Emmy award he was due to receive next month.
