Actor Kevin Spacey has once again come under the spotlight, this time again, for all the wrong reasons. The former House of Cards actor has been sued by a masseur at a Malibu Home for alleged sexual assault in 2016.
According to the lawsuit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, the Oscar-winning actor, who is currently being investigated by police in the US and UK over alleged sexual assaults, allegedly attacked a masseur in October 2016; the masseur wants to stay anonymous for media.
The lawsuit alleges that Kevin Spacey inapropriately groped the masseur before trying to forcibly kiss him.
The lawsuit alleges: “Spacey’s conduct was extreme and outrageous. Spacey acted with reckless disregard for plaintiff’s rights and feelings, and with deliberate indifference to the certainty that plaintiff would suffer emotional distress.
“As a direct and proximate result of Spacey’s actions, plaintiff has suffered and continues to suffer severe mental anguish, emotional pain and distress, fear, humiliation, grief, embarrassment, nervousness, worry, anger, frustration, helplessness, nervousness , sadness, stress, mental and emotional distress, and anxiety.”
Spacey is being sued for sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.
Kevin Spacey was one of the first Hollywood stars to face allegations in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
