United Kingdom police investigating 2nd Spacey sex-assault claim

Kevin Spacey presents the award for excellence in television at the BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills Calif

The British police have added a second sexual assault to the investigation conducted for American actor Kevin Spacey, the Press Association news agency reported today.

Scotland Yard has opened another investigation of Kevin Spacey.

A two-time Academy Award victor, Spacey was artistic director of London's Old Vic Theatre between 2004 and 2015.

Scotland Yard is also looking into allegations that Spacey sexually assaulted another man in 2008.

Police had already begun investigating an alleged assault on a young man that took place in 2008 in Lambeth, the London borough where The Old Vic is located and where Spacey had a residence.




"Officers from the child abuse and sexual offenses command are investigating", Metropolitan Police confirmed to The Guardian. "The allegations are of sexual assaults against a man (Victim 2) in 2005 in Lambeth".

It comes after London's Old Vic theatre, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004 to 2015, said it had received 20 complaints of inappropriate behaviour by the Hollywood actor. The Old Vic said a "cult of personality" around Spacey had discouraged people from speaking out.

The scandal has cost the embattled actor his role as controversial politician Frank Underwood on Netflix show House of Cards, and he has been edited out of Ridley Scott's new movie All the Money in the World.

Spacey apologized to Rapp Oct. 30 for "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour" and later released a statement saying he was seeking unspecified treatment.

The incidents reported to the Lambeth theatre cover a period of 1995 to 2013 and have not been verified, The Old Vic said.
