Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…
Not even 48 hours after Star Trek: Discovery‘s Anthony Rapp came forth with damning allegations against Kevin Spacey, claiming the A-lister made unwanted sexual advances on him when he was 14, another man has now lobbied accusations against the House of Cards star.
Speaking to Radar Online, filmmaker Tony Montana alleges that back in 2003, a drunken Spacey groped his groin at a Los Angeles bar.
“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 then paid for my drink and got away from him.”
It doesn’t end there, though, as Montana says that the actor then followed him into the washroom, recounting the moment as such:
“I backed him out the door and I pushed him,” he said. “One of his friends was in line and I said, ‘It’s time to take your boy home.’ They all ended up leaving.
On why he never brought this up before, the filmmaker 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.”
Montana is now the second individual to come forth this week, though if recent reports are to be believed, Kevin Spacey’s behavior stretches back a long way, as the theatre industry has had concerns about him for years. With that in mind, you can bet that a number of people will start coming out of the woodwork now that the floodgates have opened.
What will come of all this remains to be seen, of course, but it would seem that the actor’s reputation has been permanently tarnished, with Netflix even going so far as to halt production on his hit show House of Cards. Things certainly aren’t looking good for Kevin Spacey at the moment then and we’ll be sure to keep you posted should any further allegations surface.
