Netflix Cuts Ties With Kevin Spacey - But for Real This Time

London police are investigating an alleged 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Kevin Spacey

London police are investigating an alleged 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Kevin Spacey

The first of several sexual assault and harassment allegations against House of Cards star Kevin Spacey broke on Sunday when Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey made an inappropriate sexual advance toward him when he was 14 and Spacey was 26. The company "will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey", and "will not be moving forward with the release" of Gore, a Gore Vidal biopic that starred and was produced by Spacey.

Here, a look back at everything we know so far about Spacey's growing scandal and the aftermath of his poorly received apology. "It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors".

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

It took less than a week for two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey to go from admired stage, TV and film star to a pariah, under investigation by the police and fired from his Emmy-winning role in "House of Cards".

So can we get that Robin-Wright-only season of House of Cards now?

WhatsApp back up after brief outage
Many users in India has also reported the same, though the reason behind this issue is still unknown at the moment. Apart from "Delete for Everyone", WhatsApp has renamed the regular delete option, calling it Delete for Me .

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos wrote on his Facebook page that he encountered Spacey at the bar of London's Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-15, and the actor tried to fondle him against his will.

The Old Vic was "not now in a position to comment on specifics", it said. "I was in a state of shock", the anonymous staffer said. It was then that Spacey, who was driving, placed his hands on the assistant, telling CNN it was nonconsensual. "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sorts of different situations", one told The Guardian newspaper. "He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there".

Spacey, who has been dumped by his publicist and agents at CAA, is seeking "evaluation and treatment" in the wake of the sexual abuse allegations against him.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14.
