Actor Anthony Rapp instigated a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey, when he came forward a year ago. The actor blamed "drunken behavior" for any sexual advances he may have made on Rapp and revealed he would be living openly as a gay man.

"Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating the allegations - including the one to have reportedly taken place in Gloucester", Metropolitan police told Radar exclusively in a statement.

Variety confirmed the allegations by the police and was told, "on February 8, a man reported that he had been sexually assaulted in 2008 in Lambeth, the borough of London where the Old Vic Theatre is located".

Speaking to Andrew Denton on Australian talk show Interview, Pearce was asked about his time working with Spacey. It gets worse, because Guy Pearce, another actor he worked with back in 1996, accused him of being "handsy".

Spacey, who was artistic director at London's Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015, was one of the first Hollywood stars to face allegations in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Awesome actor. Incredible actor.

Although Guy Pearce did not say much more than that, he merely insinuated that Kevin was "handsy". "I could never imagine [that] anyone else I know would do something like that to a 14-year-old boy".

It is a sudden return for Spacey just nine months after he was accused of underage rape and sexual assault by multiple young men including Rapp.

"This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life". Spacey was sacked from his hit Netflix series House of Cards and cut from Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World last fall, and has not made any public statements since November of 2017.
