Kevin Spacey Faces 3 New Allegations of Sexual Assault

Spacey

British police confirmed they are investigating three new sexual assault allegations against gay actor Kevin Spacey, whose career collapsed under dozens of accusations of sexual impropriety against young men and boys.

U.K. officials are now looking into a total of six accusations against Spacey. The new allegations arose earlier this year, with one incident allegedly taking place in 2013, another in 2008, and another in 1996, according to TMZ and Variety. The Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command of the London Metropolitan Police is investigating the three most recent accusations.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office is reviewing a claim of abuse by Spacey from 1992, though it would be impossible to file charges since the alleged crime exceeds the statute of limitations.

Spacey once served as creative director for Britain's Old Vic theater, where at least 20 men have accused Spacey of inappropriate behavior. Back in December, Spacey's Usual Suspects costar Gabriel Byrne said production on that 1995 film — for which Spacey won an Oscar — was shut down for two days because of "inappropriate sexual behavior" by Spacey.

The calvalcade of accusations began when out actor Anthony Rapp revealed in October that Spacey made an aggressive sexual advance on him when he was 14 and Spacey was 26. Spacey was soon fired from his starring role in Netflix's House of Cards and scrubbed from a supporting role in Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World.
