The allegations

Spacey repeatedly denied Rapp’s claims that a then-26-year-old Spacey picked him up like a groom does a bride after a 1986 party at his Manhattan apartment and put him on his bed before lying on top of him.

In a civil trial earlier Rapp had accuses Spacey of assault and alleged that he squirmed out from underneath an inebriated Spacey in the fully clothed encounter before fleeing. He said Spacey had followed him to the door and asked if he was sure he wanted to leave.

Career ends

Spacey teared up saying, “They are not true.” The allegations were first made in 2017 in an interview with Buzzfeed. The accusations, along with more made by others, brought to an end Spacey’s popular role on the Netflix series “House of Cards” and abruptly derailed his career.

Spacey, 63, dabbed tears from his eyes with a tissue and sniffled as he described immediate intense pressure from publicists and lawyers to respond with compassion and empathy and an apology to Rapp’s claims.

Kevin also said that he struggled to come out publicly as gay because of his father’s racist, homophobic and anti-semitic views. “My father was a white supremacist and a neo-Nazi,” Spacey said of his father, Thomas Fowler. “I have never talked about these things publicly ever.” He added, “I grew up in a very complicated family dynamic.”
