As many of us are aware Kevin Spacey was recently accused of propositioning a fourteen-year-old boy for sex in 1986. The boy in question—a now adult Anthony Rapp—came out and discussed his experiences in a recent interview and things went downhill pretty rapidly thereafter. Kevin Spacey came out as gay, apologised for his behaviour, and recently submitted himself to rehab for his, er, ‘addiction’. Not long after, House of Cards, the Emmy award winning Netflix show centred on a greedy US politician’s meteoric rise to success, was also cancelled.
Until yesterday the allegations focused on Spacey’s attempts to proposition underage boys and his harassing behaviour on various film sets but yesterday the situation escalated when a man came forward alleging that he and Kevin Spacey were in a sexual relationship while he was still underage. Now Mr Spacey is being accused of more than harassing behaviour. If the allegations are true then Mr Spacey is being accused of statutory rape of a minor.
Worryingly, the accusations go into great detail about how the actor tried to force himself onto the young actor during their final visit. “He tried to rape me,” writes the anonymous source as he describes the last moment of their relationship together. If true, then such behaviour marks Kevin Spacey out as a full-blown child-rapist.
An accusation he’s unlikely to recover from.
As of today Kevin Spacey has firmly denied the accusations and while the source of the interview, Vulture, has extensively researched and reviewed the evidence, the allegations still come from an anonymous source meaning you may want to take them with a pinch of salt.
Then again, there has been an awful lot of them.
