BOSTON (Reuters) – The man former “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey is charged with sexually assaulting at a bar on the Massachusetts beach island of Nantucket three years ago has sued the Oscar-winning actor.
Spacey’s alleged victim sued the 59-year-old defendant in Nantucket County Superior Court on Wednesday, seeking unspecified damages over his “explicit sexual behavior and lewd and lascivious conduct.”
Prosecutors - Year - Case - Spacey - Man
Prosecutors last year filed a related criminal case against Spacey over the man’s allegations. Spacey, who won an Academy Award in 2000 for his role in “American Beauty,” has pleaded not guilty to one count of felony indecent assault and battery and denies the allegation.
Reuters is not identifying the man because he is an alleged victim of sexual assault. Spacey’s lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
Spacey - Controversy - October - Actor - Anthony
Spacey became embroiled in controversy in October 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. The controversy led to Spacey being dropped from the Netflix television series “House of Cards” and erased from the film “All the Money in the World.”
Spacey apologized for inappropriate conduct with Rapp.
