Kevin Spacey is the subject of three new allegations of sexual assault that are currently being looked into by the UK Metropolitan Police, adding to the three previous claims that are already being investigated in London.
TMZ have reported that the new accusations come from three men, and that they regard separate cases of sexual assault in the UK capital. According to the claims, these incidents occurred in Westminster in 1996, in Lambeth in 2008, and in Gloucester in 2013.
The London borough of Lambeth is home of the Old Vic Theater, where Spacey served as artistic director from 2004 to 2015. The theater issued a statement last November reporting that they had received 20 personal testimonies of inappropriate behavior by the actor.
In that same month, Scotland Yard’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command opened investigations into claims that Spacey sexually assaulted men in 2005 and 2008, the former case also allegedly taking place in Lambeth. The third London case – another incident in Westminster – surfaced the following January. Similar allegations are also being investigated in Connecticut and Los Angeles.
The dozens of claims made publicly against Spacey began in October last year when he was accused by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp of making sexual advances when Rapp was 14 years old. Since then, the actor’s been fired from House of Cards (a show where his alleged behavior was reportedly well known among the crew and producers) and was famously removed from Ridley Scott’s last film, All the Money in the World and replaced by Christopher Plummer.
Amidst all the accusations, a statement was issued by a representative that “Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” and was spotted weeks later at a luxury rehab clinic in Arizona. No charges have yet been made against the actor, but it may only be a matter of time at this point.
