Scotland Yard is reportedly investigating three new sexual assault allegations that have been levelled against former “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey.
The new charges date back up to two decades and are in addition to the confirmed three other investigations being done by London police, bringing the total to six.
According to the allegations, one man reported that he had been sexually assaulted in 2008 in Lambeth, one in Gloucester in 2013 and one in Westminster in 1996. Each is being investigated by the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command of the Metropolitan Police.
The police launched an initial investigation in November after receiving a report of a sexual assault that also occurred in Lambeth in 2008, one there again in 2005, and one in Westminster in 2005.
Lambeth is the same borough as the Old Vic theater where Spacey served as artistic director for over a decade from 2003. In November, the theater’s board of trustees revealed twenty men had come forward with allegations against Spacey.
The story breaks as actor Guy Pearce revealed in a recent interview with Andrew Denton that he had a “slightly difficult time with Kevin” when he shot 1997’s “L.A. Confidential” and that Spacey was a “handsy guy” but Pearce added: “Thankfully I was 29, and not 14.” You can see his comments from the 55-second mark below:
