House of Cards actor, Kevin Spacey comes out as gay

Drama started hours ago when actor Anthony Rapp came forward with his story of how Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was only 14 years old.

Rapp, star of "Star Trek: Discovery", said the incident happened in 1986 when both he and Spacey were appearing in Broadway shows and the future two-time Academy Award victor befriended him and invited him to a party at his apartment.

He claimed the Usual Suspects star invited him to his apartment for a party and at the end of the night picked him up, placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance. The incident, Rapp says, happened after a party he attended at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986. Seeing Spacey now, 'My stomach churns, ' Rapp said.

"He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold", Rapp said, noting how the pair had been alone in a bedroom.

Rapp said he managed to "squirm" away.

"The older I get, and the more I know, I feel very fortunate that something worse didn't happen", Rapp told BuzzFeed. I know that there are stories out there about me and some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy.

Rapp appeared in the hit Broadway musical Rent in 1996 and reprised his role in the feature film adaptation.

"As I opened the door to leave, he was leaning on the front door [frame]".


Buzzfeed reported they had spoken to at least half a dozen of Rapp's friends and loved ones who had confirmed Rapp had privately told them about the alleged 1986 incident at some stage in the past 30 years.

"So I think on some level I was like, Oh". What am I supposed to do with it?

Immediately, commentators in Hollywood slammed the response. He is being investigated by authorities in Los Angeles, New York and London.

Spacey is an Academy Award victor for Best Actor for "American Beauty" and Best Supporting Actor for "The Usual Suspects". His stint as the crooked Prez Frank Underwood in House of Cards has been extensively applauded.

In responding to the accusation, Spacey came out as gay, drawing a massive backlash from critics who questioned the timing of his announcement and saw his reply as conflating homosexuality and alleged pedophilia.

Actress Rose McGowan, one of the first women to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault, has tweeted her reaction to Spacey's statement, writing: "Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it's your turn to cry, that's why we've gotta say goodbye".

Rapp said he spoke up not "to simply air a grievance", but he wishes to shine light on this behavior that has been allowed.

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. More than 40 women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior, ranging from sexual harassment to rape.
