The Old Vic theatre in London says it has received 20 allegations of inappropriate behaviour by actor Kevin Spacey, who was the artistic director there between 2004 and 2015.
A number of people who have worked at the theatre claimed it was well known that Spacey groped and behaved in an inappropriate way with young men during that time.
The victims said they “felt unable to raise concerns”and that Spacey “operated without sufficient accountability”.
In a statement, the theatre said it “truly apologises” for “not creating an environment or culture where people felt able to speak freely” and announced a “commitment to a new way forward”.
The BBC say they have contacted Spacey’s legal representatives for comment.
The Old Vic’s announcement follows recent allegations of sexual harassment and predatory behaviour made against the double Oscar winner and former House of Cards actor while at the theatre.
Spacey has not responded to them.’
The actor’s behaviour was alleged to have ranged from making people feel uncomfortable to sexually inappropriate behaviour, the Old Vic investigation found.
No-one alleged rape but three people told the Old Vic they had contacted the police, while 14 of the 20 complainants were told by the investigators that they should consider going to the police.
There were 20 individual allegations and 16 were former staff, all of whom were men.
Lewis Silkin, the external law firm engaged by the theatre to conduct the investigation, said more than half the allegations were said to have taken place inside the Old Vic.
The investigation also found there was not widespread knowledge of Spacey’s alleged behaviour within the organisation, the law firm said.
With the exception of one of the claims, none of the reported incidents were raised formally or informally with management.
Spacey was invited to participate in the investigation but the Old Vic said he did not respond.
The investigation is continuing so more people can come forward.
Current artistic director Matthew Warchus said he had “genuine and deep sympathy for all those who have come forward”.
Kevin Spacey Accused Of Raping 13-Year-Old Boys In Thailand
Disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey has been accused of raping various underage young boys whilst vacationing in Thailand.
According to internet sleuths on Reddit, the American Beauty actor’s inappropriate behaviour with young men may extend to prepubescent children.
According to one Reddit user who posts under the pseudonym El_Cochinote:
“I saw pubescent boys in his lap, dancing for and massaging him, etc in a VIP room at a nightclub in an Asian country.
In a developed country, I’d have broken his face then called the cops. In that country, I just felt nauseous and walked away.
He has an army of lawyers that comb the Internet for reports of his sick predilections but if you Google him specifically around those predilections, you’ll find a few things that have survived.
Like I said, don’t be surprised when the news breaks wide open. It’s inevitable.”
“Kevin Spacey is a pedo. Had the misfortune and disgust of seeing enough with my own eyes in a foreign country. The rumors are out there and it’s a matter of time.”
More recently, the same redditor posted an AMA (an “Ask me Anything” thread users post in a subreddit. a separate, mini forum, meant for such discussions).
Allegedly, El_Cochinote saw Spacey in a private VIP room at a nightclub in Bangkok, Thailand, with young, shirtless boys sitting in the actor’s lap, dancing for him and massaging him.
Child sex tourism is a multi-billion-dollar industry and many Asian countries, such as Thailand, are notorious for it. And although figures are hard to compile, according to some estimates, child prostitution in Thailand involved 800,000 children under the age of 16 in 2004.
Western sex tourists often visit places such as Bangkok and Pattaya to indulge in despicable acts with children.
If the Reddit user, who wrote about witnessing Kevin Spacey’s escapades in the Southeast Asian country a year ago, is telling the truth, then Kevin Spacey was one of those sex tourists.
Richard Dreyfuss’ Son Accuses Kevin Spacey Of Sexually Assault
Harry Dreyfuss alleges that the House of Cards star touched him inappropriately while his father was in the same room
The son of actor Richard Dreyfuss is the latest victim to accuse Kevin Spacey of sexually abusing him.
Harry Dreyfuss says that the House of Cards star sexually assaulted him when he was a teenager while his father, who was oblivious to what was happening, was in the same room.
The incident happened in 2008 when Richard Dreyfuss was starring in a play directed by Spacey called Complicit, at the Old Vic Theatre in London.
The latest claim contributes to a growing sexual abuse scandal against Spacey, who has now been dropped by House of Cards producers Netflix and is under investigation by police in London.
He says Richard, best known for his roles in Jaws, The Goodbye Girl and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, was unaware of what was going on.
Harry said: “I thought, surely he can’t be coming on to me like this right in front of my dad… But his hand stayed there.”
The the high school senior says he got up and moved away from Spacey twice, but claims both times the actor followed him and “slid his hand between my right hand right leg”.
He wrote: “Over the course of about 20 seconds, centimetre by centimetre, Kevin crawled his hand from my thigh over toward my crotch.
“I stopped reading the script and my eyes went wide. I lifted up my head and faced him. Looking into his eyes, I gave the most meagre shake of my head that I could manage.”
He explained that his dad had seen “none of this” because he was “deeply focused on his script” and he didn’t want to tell him because Spacey was his boss at the time.
Richard, now 70, confirmed to BuzzFeed that he was oblivious and it wasn’t until several years later that Harry made the admission.
so I can keep this gig up of informing you & people like you! xo
British Police Investigate Kevin Spacey Over Sexual Assault Claim
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is being investigated by British police over a fresh allegation of sexual assault.
UK police are investigating claims that Spacey sexually assaulted an unconscious aspiring actor more than a decade ago.
The alleged victim, who was 23 at the time, says he was sexually abused at the Oscar winner’s London home.
Spacey said on Thursday that he is seeking treatment after facing allegations of sexual misconduct from a string of men.
RT reports: It is understood the British actor behind the latest claims, who has not been identified, smoked weed with Spacey before he passed out during the 2008 incident.
The alleged victim claimed that when he regained consciousness, he discovered the Hollywood actor performing oral sex on him.
It is alleged that Spacey told him not to tell anyone.
The complainant, now aged 32, contacted police this week.
It is understood that he was passed on to the Metropolitan Police, which has released a statement concerning a 2008 incident in Lambeth.
“On Wednesday, November 1, City of London Police referred an allegation of sexual assault to the Metropolitan Police Service.
“It is alleged a man assaulted another man in 2008 in Lambeth. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command are investigating.”
It is understood that the aspiring actor asked Spacey, who was the artistic director at London’s Old Vic Theater from 2004–2015, for help with his career.
The Old Vic released a statement this week, expressing its dismay over the allegations levied against Spacey during his time at the theater.
“Inappropriate behavior by anyone working at the Old Vic is completely unacceptable,” the statement said.
“We aim to foster a safe and supportive environment without prejudice, harassment or bullying of any sort, at any level, as set out in our joint statement with the theater industry on October 23.
“We want our employees to feel confident, valued and proud to be part of the Old Vic family. Any behavior we become aware of which contravenes these goals will not be tolerated.”
In the statement, the theater urged anyone employed by or connected with the Old Vic with any type of complaint to get in touch with the theatre.
“Any experience shared will be treated in the utmost confidence and with sensitivity,” the statement reads.
“We have appointed external advisors to help us deal with any information received.”
News has emerged that disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey set-up a child grooming agency for Hollywood and D.C. power players.
Earlier this week, Spacey was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy, as well as drugging and raping Justin Bieber and Zac Efron when they were underage.
As the scandal continues to unravel, disturbing details about an alleged child-grooming group named ‘The Kevin Spacey Foundation’ has emerged.
The Kevin Spacey Foundation is an organization of “mentors, advocates and educators” who work with hopeful emerging artists to “discover, fund and co-produce transatlantic musical, dance, theater and film projects,”
Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: A video of Spacey promoting the foundation was published on YouTube in January 2015. In it, Spacey said he was approached by actor Jack Lemmon when he was 13 years old at an acting workshop. The meeting led to a connection between the two, and when Spacey was 25, he landed the role of Lemmon’s son on the Broadway production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
As Spacey was making his name on Broadway, another actor was doing the same on the play Precious Sons. Anthony Rapp was just 14 years old at the time, and he is now speaking out and accusing Spacey of attempting to sexually assault him during an after party for the two casts in 1986.
“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me…He was trying to seduce me…I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
While Rapp’s story of his encounter with Spacey may influence parents to keep their children as far away from the Kevin Spacey Foundation as possible now, this is not the first time the actor’s name has been among a list of sexual predators.
In January 2015, at the same time Spacey was promoting his foundation and searching for eager children, a report was published revealing that Spacey’s name was alongside former President Bill Clinton on the logs of visitors who flew on the “Lolita Express.”
The private jet was owned by sexual predator and wealthy Wall Street hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein. He was found guilty of sex-trafficking girls as young as 12 years old to facilitate rape parties with his wealthy friends.
Spacey and Clinton appear to be just two of those “wealthy friends” who received favors from Epstein. While Spacey flew on the plane during a trip to Africa, Clinton’s name was listed on the passenger logs 26 times between 2001 and 2003, revealing that he flew on the plane at least once a month during the two-year period.
While Epstein spent just 13 months in prison and home detention for the conviction of solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution, the close friends with connections to his child sex-trafficking operation faced no ramifications. In the case of Kevin Spacey, he continued to promote his foundation, and to encourage parents to let their children work with him.
“The Kevin Spacey Foundation is an opportunity for me to continue the kind of work that we’ve been doing in education and with emerging artists,” Spacey said in the promotional video. “I’ve set it up to support young actors, writers, producers, directors with the passion and the potential to succeed in the ever-competitive business of film and theatre.”
The allegations against Spacey that were made public by Anthony Rapp occurred over 30 years ago. That, coupled with Spacey’s involvement with Epstein and Clinton, raises questions about how many other young actors Spacey has victimized over the years, and whether the infamous “Help! I’ve escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement!” line from Family Guy had a much deeper meaning than the public realized in 2005.

Kevin Spacey’s Child Grooming Agency Forced To Close Down
Kevin Spacey has been forced to close down a child grooming agency he ran for Hollywood moguls and D.C. politicians.
Following the revelations by independent media outlets that the Kevin Spacey Foundation was actually a front for a child brothel catering to the rich and famous, both its website and Twitter account were swiftly shut down.
Fox News reports: After numerous allegations surfaced that Spacey targeted males as young as 14, critics questioned whether the star of “House of Cards” could continue his involvement with the youth-focused foundation.
Neither Spacey nor his foundation responded to the Free Beacon’s requests for comment.
The most recent allegation against Spacey came from an anonymous man claiming he entered a sexual relationship with the actor when he was 14 and Spacey was 24.
Spacey’s representatives reached out to Vulture, which posted the in-depth interview, to deny the anonymous man’s claims.
Since then, two more people have madeclaims about interactions with Spacey: Tony Montana alleged that the star grabbed Montana’s crotch in public, and actor Roberto Cavazos claimed that Spacey abused his position as artistic director of London’s Old Vic Theatre.
Producers of Spacey’s hit Netflix series “House of Cards” have suspended Season 6 while the actor seeks treatment.
Kevin Spacey Ran Child Grooming Agency After ‘Lolita Express’ Meeting
Another man has come forward accusing Kevin Spacey of attempting to rape him as a child.
The man who is now 48-years-old says that he was in an ongoing consensual sexual relationship with Kevin Spacey when he was just 14.
He said the relationship ended when he was 15 after the House of Cards star tried to rape him in his apartment.
The unnamed accuser says that he’s had time to look back on that period of his life and he is thoroughly disgusted with the actor. “I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator,” he said.
The man, now a 48-year-old artist, spoke to Vulture. The outlet says it independently verified several details of the man’s claims and reached representatives for Spacey, who said the two-time Oscar-winner “absolutely denies the allegations.”
Speaking anonymously, the man said he was 12 when he first met Spacey while taking acting classes in Westchester County where Spacey taught. The two ran into each other two years later. Spacey allegedly gave the man his phone number and claimed Spacey said, “I want to see you, and I want you to come to my apartment.”
“I felt like I’d won the lottery. A little drunk with it and very delighted with the attention,” the man recalled thinking at the time. According to the man, his relationship with Spacey became sexual the next day: “I called him on the phone the next day, and he told me how he was in love with me and wanted to see me. We started a sexual relationship that first visit, which mostly involved me f*cking him.”
The man claimed that Spacey offered to help his acting career by introducing him to producers, but nothing ever came of it.
The man claims the relationship ended when he was 15, after Spacey attempted to rape him in his New York apartment: “He told me to come over, and I went to the apartment. And I thought we were going to kiss and tell each other we loved each other and I was going to go. But he wanted to have sex, and this time he wanted to f*ck me, which had never happened to me before.”
“[Spacey] pushes hard, and grabs me, and starts shoving up against my assh*le, and it hurts like a motherf*cker,” the man claimed. “I again tell him no, and he tries again. I am strong enough, thank God, both somewhere in my brain and in my body, to get him off of me.”
“I always have said, ‘He tried to rape me,’” the man told Vulture. “I told him I didn’t want that, he went again to do it, I told him no, he went again and pushed harder and grabbed me and pushed harder. I don’t know how I would see that as anything besides an attempted rape, which I was able to thwart.”
The man said he started to see Spacey as a “sexual predator” and a “pedophile” a decade after their alleged relationship.
I would call him a pedophile and a sexual predator. When I turned 25, I looked at every 14-year-old boy I could see, to try to understand what those men had seen, because I still on some level thought I had been a tiny adult. … Up until then, I just thought about him as somebody who had really done me wrong and tried to rape me, but not as somebody who had functioned as a predator. And then, if you’re interested in sexual predation, you start to read about it, and you realize all these patterns and techniques, and it all kind of falls within a set of practices.
The man said he was inspired to come forward with his story after Spacey came out as gay while apologizing to Anthony Rapp, who accused the Netflix star of making unwanted sexual advances at him when he was 14.
He is a pedophile. When you look at his statement, you realize also he’s profoundly narcissistic. He thinks this is about being caught that he’s gay. And then he is spinning it, right? “Oh, people like gays now. So I’ll throw them that. I’ll say I’m gay and I will betray my whole community and do something else that conflates pedophilia with male homosexuality.” That’s great. Thank you for that. And that was probably the thing that made me want to talk more than anything else. How repulsive that was.
Producer Claims Kevin Spacey “Drugged And Raped” Justin Bieber
Kevin Spacey is a well-known sexual predator who boasted of “drugging and raping Justin Bieber” when he was underage, according to a House of Cards producer who warns that Spacey’s behavior “makes Harvey Weinstein look like a choir boy.”
“I’m not trying to play down what Harvey Weinstein is accused of doing,” the production staffer said, “But his victims were adults. Kevin has spent decades using his power and influence to fraternize with young, often underage boys.
“Everyone in the industry knows about Kevin. Spacey’s crimes are some of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood. He preys on young usually ‘straight’ male child or teen stars early on in their career, and of course the ‘straight’ victims don’t say a word about it because they are ashamed.
“The problem of older male power players abusing far younger male and female wannabe or fledgling stars is endemic.”
Multiple sources claim Justin Bieber and Zac Efron were aggressively pursued by Kevin Spacey and Hollywood director Brian Singer when they first entered the entertainment industry as pre-teens.
It is widely accepted in the industry that Justin Bieber’s breakdown and drug and alcohol addiction from 2013 onwards was partly due to the trauma of being forced to take drugs and being sexually assaulted or raped by Singer and Spacey.

Describing Spacey as a man who “shits on those he thinks he is above”, the producer described Spacey “boasting about the tape as though it proved his superiority to the rest of us. He can do whatever he wants, including the worst crimes against the biggest names.”
“Everybody knew about Kevin”
Netflix announced the decision to cancel House of Cards on the same day that Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was 14.
“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold,” Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed. “But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me…He was trying to seduce me…I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”
The producer describes the House of Cards cancellation as “painful but necessary”, while alleging that Netflix executives have long been aware of Spacey’s lecherous and predatory behavior and have had contingency plans in place to protect themselves for years.
“They wouldn’t cancel a very profitable show because of one accusation. This is going to blow up much bigger than that and they don’t want to be part of it.”
“There has been hush money paid out on at least three occasions that I know about,” the producer said, also revealing that House of Cards junior production staff have been fired at Spacey’s request as punishment for refusing his sexual advances.
“He was always harassing the male PAs on set, pretending to blow the boom microphone, just basically assuming he was entitled to every young, decent-looking guy he had any power over on the set, straight or gay.”
Netflix Cancels ‘House of Cards’ After Kevin Spacey Sexual Assault Allegation
Kevin Spacey’s Emmy also revoked
Update: Filming on the sixth and final season of the Netflix drama ‘House of Cards’ has been suspended indefinitely.
“MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on House of Cards season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew,” the two companies said in a joint statement to Deadline.
The latest news comes less than 24 hours after Netflix announced that they were to cancel ‘House of Cards’ a day after ‘Star Trek Discovery’ actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexual assault when he was 14 years old.
“Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey,” the companies said in a joint statement on Monday.
Rapp claimed on Sunday that the then-26-year-old Spacey drunkenly put him on a bed to “seduce” him. “I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually,” Rapp said referring to the 1986 incident.
Spacey issued an apology on Twitter, saying he was “beyond horrified” to hear about Rapp’s story, but added that he did not remember the incident, though he did remember being drunk.
“If I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” Spacey tweeted.
According to Salon: Deadline is reporting that Netflix has determined that the forthcoming sixth season of its series “House of Cards” will be its last. The news comes less than 24 hours after actor Anthony Rapp accused “Cards” star and producer Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him in 1986, when Rapp was 14. There is, as of publication, no available statement from Netflix — but reliable sources, including the Hollywood Reporter and Variety, have also individually confirmed and reported the development.
It is still unclear whether there is a link between Rapp’s accusation, Spacey’s much-criticized apology and the cancellation of future seasons, though the timing is suggestive. Other details, such as whether the 13-episode sixth season will come to series conclusion or simply stop mid-narrative, are also unavailable at this time. Currently, “House of Cards” is reportedly over six weeks into its shooting schedule for season six.
The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences have also announced that Spacey will not receive an Emmy award which was scheduled to be conferred on the actor this year.
In a tweet the Academy said “The International Academy has announced that in light of recent events it will not honour Kevin Spacey with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award”
It has also been revealed that Spacey flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet,the ‘Lolita Express’ along with Bill Clinton.
Kevin Spacey Flew On Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ With Bill Clinton
The alleged child molester Kevin Spacey flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet the ‘Lolita Express’ along with former President Bill Clinton.
The revelation surfaced following claims by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was a 14-years old.
The incident happened at Spacey s apartment in 1986 where Rapp claims that Spacey picked him up placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him
Spacey claims he remembers being drunk, but not the incident.
The media dutifully obliged and the gravity of the sexual assault claim has been obfuscated to some extent by the press focusing on the House of Cards actor’s sexuality.
In 2008, financier Jeffrey Epstein, whose friends included some of the most powerful people on the planet, was convicted of soliciting an under-age girl for prostitution.
Spacey was on board Epstein’s private jet with Bill Clinton when it flew from JFK Airport into the Azores before the former President and the actor enjoyed a tour of Africa.
Spacey subsequently apologized for the incident, but deflected by making the story about how he was now living as a gay man.
According to Fox News, Epstein, “Allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on “Orgy Island,” an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”
Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on the Lolita Express, a luxury jet fitted out with beds where prominent elitists allegedly had sex with young girls, ditching his Secret Service detail for 5 of those trips.
Clinton chose to continue his association with Epstein even after, according to the Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, “everyone within his inner circles knew was a pedophile.”
Epstein also reportedly had 21 different phone numbers for Bill Clinton.
While there is no evidence to suggest Spacey engaged in criminal activity while on board Epstein’s jet, his admission that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy is sure to provoke further questions.
