New allegations against Kevin Spacey

BBC:-New allegations have emerged from a number of men accusing Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct.

US filmmaker Tony Montana claims he was groped by the actor in a Los Angeles bar in 2003.

Montana says he was left with PTSD for six months after he claims Spacey “forcefully” grabbed his crotch.

It follows an allegation made by Anthony Rapp that the House of Cards actor tried to “seduce” him when he was 14 years old.

Kevin Spacey says he has no recollection of that encounter, and was “beyond horrified”.

Film director Montana told Radar Online that he was in his thirties when the incident took place at the Coronet Bar in LA.

He says he removed Spacey’s hand from his crotch and walked away, but claims the actor later followed him into the men’s toilets.

Incidents regarding Spacey are also alleged to have taken place in the UK while the two-time Oscar winner was the artistic director at the Old Vic in London between 2004 and 2015.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theatre, claims Spacey “routinely preyed” on young male actors.

“It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr Spacey to feel free to touch us,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

He said he fended off two “unpleasant” advances from Spacey that “bordered on harassment,” but that others were afraid to do so.

“There are a lot of us who have a ‘Kevin Spacey story’,” says Cavazos.

The Old Vic has set up a confidential complaints process for anyone connected to the 200-year-old theatre to come forward.

It said in a statement: “We aim to foster a safe and supportive environment without prejudice, harassment or bullying of any sort, at any level.”
