The Oscar-winning actor is now being investigated by UK police over an alleged sexual assault, according to British media.
The Metropolitan police said they are investigating claims a man was sexually assaulted in London in 2008…but refused to reveal the identity of the alleged perpetrator.
The claims are the latest to emerge since Spacey was accused of trying to seduce a then 14 year old actor in 1986.
Harassment allegations against him were also made by Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos who worked in London’s Old Vic Theatre where Spacey was artistic director for over a decade until 2015.
Spacey is now said to be seeking unspecified treatment.
