Kevin Spacey Seeking Treatment After Sexual Harassment Allegations
Actor Kevin Spacey will seek treatment after two men accused him of sexual harassment, People has confirmed.
Spacey, who's lost an Emmy distinction since the allegations came to light, has been accused by actors Anthony Rapp and Roberto Cavazos of indecent behavior. Production of Netflix series House of Cards, on which Spacey stars, has also been suspended.
“Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” a rep said to People. “No other information will be available at this time.”
Rapp claimed in an interview with Buzzfeed that Spacey made lewd passes that suggested he sought something sexual at a party in 1986, when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26.
“I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out, to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me," Rapp told People.
Spacey's response, which seemed to conflate the allegations with coming out as gay, has enraged many who claim Spacey recklessly paints a picture of gay men as predators.
