Kevin Spacey seeking "evaluation and treatment" in wake of sexual misconduct allegation

Kevin Spacey seeking

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos wrote on his Facebook page that he encountered Spacey at the bar of London's Old Vic, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004 until 2015. Spacey's statement was criticised by LGBTQ organisations, with some campaigners arguing that his coming out was an attempt to "deflect" from the allegations.

The House of Cards actor said in a statement that he does "not remember the encounter", but said he was "beyond horrified to hear his story".

He added that the story had made him "address" other personal matters and that he chooses "now to live as a gay man".

Kevin Spacey is seeking "evaluation and treatment" following multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, according to the actor's representatives. "No other information will only be disclosed for the moment", has announced in a press release relayed by Deadline, Staci Wolfe, who represents the actor.

Following the first allegations that came out earlier this week involving Rapp, Spacey responded in a statement, saying that he did not recall the incident but that he was "sorry for the feelings [Rapp] describes having carried with him all these years".

Production on the sixth and last season of Netflix's "House of Cards", in which Spacey plays the lead role of Frank Underwood, has also since been suspended.

The Old Vic has said no formal complaints were ever made against Spacey during his tenure, but the theater said it was setting up a confidential email address for people to report experiences of harassment.

Since then, several claims have been made against Hollywood actors and directors, including Jeremy Piven and Dustin Hoffman.

Hoffman, now 80, said he felt "terrible" after Anna Graham Hunter claimed he had groped her and spoken to her about sex while she was a 17-year-old production assistant on one of his film sets.
