Kevin Spacey seeking 'evaluation and treatment' after slew of sexual harassment claims

Netflix Said Ending Spacey's `House of Cards' After Season 6

The allegation against Spacey comes as the entertainment industry is reeling from a series of sexual misconduct accusations against some of the biggest players in the business.

Four men have come forward to accuse Spacey of sexual misconduct. And on Tuesday, actor Roberto Cavazos claimed that while appearing in theater productions at London's Old Vic Theater, he rejected numerous sexual advances from the actor, who worked as artistic director at the theater for almost a decade.

The Old Vic issued a statement saying that it was "deeply dismayed" by the allegations of sexual improprieties, adding that it had set up an email address for anyone who has worked there to make a confidential complaint about inappropriate behavior by Spacey, or anyone else. Rapp said that after the other guests left, Spacey, appearing drunk, took him into his bedroom and lay on top of him. We want our employees to feel confident, valued and proud to be part of The Old Vic family.

In a statement posted on Twitter on October 30, Rapp explained that he would not be saying any further about the allegations he made against Spacey, at least at this point in time.

Accusations of sexual harassment and rape against movie producer Harvey Weinstein have emboldened other victims of abuse in the film and TV industry to come forward and press for change. As he grew older, he told Vulture, he came to see Spacey as a sexual predator: "I would call him that to his face".

"I had PTSD for six months after", he claims. "I never let anything happen, but know of a few who were too scared to stop him".

Netflix announced Wednesday it would suspend production on the sixth and final season of its hit political drama series House of Cards, after announcing just a day earlier that it would go ahead with the production.

Deadline reports that Spacey's spokesperson, Staci Wolfe of Polaris, released a statement indicating that Spacey is scheduled to take the necessary time for treatment and evaluation, but she didn't go into details of what it entailed.
