Kevin Spacey: all the complaints against him and the current legal situation | Spoiler

Kevin Spacey He is one of the great film and television actors, but in recent years his career has been completely stained after complaints of sexual abuse that appeared in the last time. In 2017 the first arrived, and because of that he was disaffected from the series House of Cards, from Netflix. A week ago it was announced that he will return to work, thus being a controversial return in the midst of so many accusations he received and here we will review the known ones.

Anthony RappThe 49-year-old actor publicly sued Spacey in 2017 for a sexual assault a few decades ago, when he was a 14-year-old boy. After this, dozens of young people came out to speak their truth, just as he did too Harry Dreyfuss, son of interpreter Richard Dreyfuss, who revealed to have been groped by the Oscar winner.

The list of names that accused Kevin continues with the Norwegian writer Ari Behn, ex-husband of Princess Martha Luisa of Norway, who committed suicide at the age of 47 at the end of December 2019. According to his words, the protagonist of American Beauty touched his genitals under a table during a Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2007.

Another of the cases that attracted the most attention was that of Linda Culkin. In 2009, this nurse heard from a patient the details of how Spacey had sexually harassed him, for which he began a complaint campaign on social networks. Finally, she was arrested for harassing the actor and in 2014 she spent 51 months in prison for threatening him several times to make him confess to the crime.

The sad end for Culkin came in 2018 when she was walking home and was hit by a truck, and for this cause she died hours later at age 59. There wasn’t much investigation and her cousin, Cindy, said: Linda was one of the first to accuse Kevin Spacey of attacking young men, and I find it very strange that nothing more has been heard about his accident “.




Another of his complainants was a masseur known as “John Doe”, who assured that in September 2018 the interpreter of Frank Underwood forced him to take his genitals during a massage session in a private residence in Malibu. The plaintiff died a year later, without giving details about his death, and the charges were dropped.

In July 2016, the son of journalist Heather Unruh, denounced him for having put a hand in his pants during a meeting in a bar. Kevin pleaded not guilty and the lawsuit was withdrawn by the Justice when it noticed that the young man was no longer cooperating with the investigation. Three years later, he was interrogated for six crimes of sexual assault between 1996 and 2013, but there was no trial and in April of this year the cases were closed.
