UK police are investigating new allegations that Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted a man in London in 2005.
The allegation was reported to police last week, days after The Old Vic Theatre reported that it had received 20 allegations of inappropriate behavior by the Swimming With Sharks star during his 11-year run as artistic director.
Scotland Yard confirmed that the allegations were made by a man in Lambeth, home to the theater. The story was first reported by Deadline sister publication Variety.
“The allegations are of sexual assaults against a man in 2005 in Lambeth. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command are investigating,” police noted.
Police confirmed that the allegations were made by the same man suspected in the 2008 case, which is thought to have taken place on a 23 year old actor. However, they did not name Spacey or the victim.
It is the latest allegation against Spacey after Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp, filmmaker and actor Tony Montana, who is best known for 2003 documentary Overnight, and Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos who worked with Spacey at London’s Old Vic made claims against the former House of Cards star star.
