Kevin Space Sexual Misconduct Treatment

It allegedly included non-consensual touching and inappropriate sexual comments, with the actor typically targeting young, male members of the production crew.

Bar worker Daniel Beal said the actor, 58, had once tried to groom him aged 19, when he was employed at the Goodwood Park Hotel in West Sussex in 2010.

One accuser, a former production assistant, said Spacey thrust his hands down the production assistant's pants without consent.

All eight of the employees in the report, who spoke out anonymously for fear of retaliation, described Spacey's conduct as "predatory" and as creating a "toxic" work environment.

The allegations by the eight people who worked on "House of Cards" likely explains why Netflix, the Los Gatos-based streaming giant announced Tuesday that it was suspending production on season 6 of the series, for which Spacey also serves as executive producer.

Since the allegations first surfaced Sunday, Spacey has made no comment other than declaring he was "beyond horrified" by the first allegation dating back 31 years, which he claimed not to remember.

Spacey was artistic director there from 2004 to 2015. House of Cards' critical reception has been mixed in recent seasons and despite some Emmys love, it isn't nearly as addicting as it was in the early years.

Netflix late Friday dropped Kevin Spacey, whose career is in free-fall over spiraling sexual assault accusations as police gather evidence for a possible arrest warrant against Harvey Weinstein for alleged rape.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said the case had been referred from the City of London's force on Wednesday, adding: "It is alleged a man assaulted another man in 2008 in Lambeth. And we have been in contact with several legislators to express our apology and explain".

They did not give any information about what kind of treatment he wants. "The man said, "'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this", and Spacey became flustered and left the set.

Though the allegations have not yet yielded any stateside investigations, Variety is reporting that Scotland Yard has launched an investigation into an incident where Spacey allegedly sexually assaulted a man in London almost a decade ago.

It is alleged the assault happened months after a complaint was made by the production assistant to a supervisor that Mr Spacey had been sexually harassing him. Netflix has brought House of Cards to a grinding halt, tossing Spacey's most immediate job in limbo.

Spacey's publicist, Staci Wolf, said Thursday that she and Creative Artists Agency would no longer be representing Spacey, who is reportedly "seeking treatment". And honestly, the show has inadvertently set up the story to make such a change not only possible, but welcome.

"Someone on the crew shared a complaint about a specific remark and gesture made by Kevin Spacey", the statement read.

The source said he helped bring Spacey's stuff to the actor's trailer. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating'.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos then accused Spacey of sexual harassment, saying he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic, but that others were afraid to do so.
