The radio host asks again and Mr Takei said "Some people are kind of skittish, or maybe, um, uh, afraid, and you're trying to persuade". Brunton says when they went back to Takei's home he was given some sort of date rape drug, causing him to pass out.

When even George Takei is accused of sexual assault, one has to wonder what the world is coming to? Brunton recalled having two drinks, the second of which left him feeling "very disoriented and dizzy". "Brad, who is 100 percent beside me on this, as my life partner of more than 30 years and now my husband, stands fully by my side".

When he awoke, Brunton claimed Takei "had my trousers down around my ankles" and was groping him, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Scottt alleges the actor then tried to take his underwear off and groped his crotch. I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'OK, fine.' And I said I am going to go and he said, 'If you feel you must.

In addition to his stature as one of the seven prominent cast members on the original Star Trek TV series from the late 1960s (and subsequent movies featuring the cast in later years), Takei in recent years has used his voice in Hollywood to address social issues, including gay rights activism, after he revealed his sexuality in 2005. Brunton said he told Takei "I don't want to do this".

Four of Brunton's friends confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter that he had previously spoken to them about the incidence. "I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that".

"But I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment", Takei continued.

In a Facebook post, Takei said that the events which Brunton describes "simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now".

Brunton had claimed that he was a 23-year-old waiter and an aspiring actor when he went for a drink at the actor's condo.

In another development in the barrage of sexual assault, harassment and rape allegations to rock the entertainment and other industries, MA prosecutors will meet with the son of a former Boston TV news anchor who said Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted the teenage boy at a Nantucket restaurant.

Takei is yet to comment on the allegations. You've never held a job over someone if they didn't touch your cock...' replied Stern and Takei was quick to add that it was never an incident in work, adding: 'No, I never did that'.

"Those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful".
