Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing a historical assault accusation against Kevin Spacey, officials confirmed on April 11.

Police have filed evidence about an allegation involving an incident with a man in West Hollywood in 1992.

More than 30 men have come forward with allegations of misconduct against Kevin Spacey in recent months.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said it began investigating the case in December, and presented it to the Los Angeles District Attorney office for review earlier this month.

No details of the allegation have been released.

It is unclear if California’s statute of limitations on prosecuting criminal assault, which is normally ten years, would apply.

Kevin Spacey, 58, first became embroiled in controversy last November when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of assault in 1986 when he was 14 and Spacey was 26.

The Oscar-winning actor claimed to have no memory of the events, but publicly apologized. He has since issued an “absolute” denial of the other allegations that later emerged.

Meanwhile, London police are investigating three criminal cases against Kevin Spacey.

London’s Old Vic Theater, where Kevin Spacey was artistic director, has said it received 20 complaints of inappropriate behavior against him.

The controversy has led to Kevin Spacey being axed from a number of roles, including from Netflix series House of Cards and the 2017 movie All the Money in the World, which was re-shot without him.


Veteran talk show host Charlie Rose has been suspended by several TV networks following allegations of harassment.

In a report by the Washington Post, eight women accused Charlie Rose of inappropriate behavior.

CBS News said: “These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously.”

PBS and Bloomberg have also suspended him.

Charlie Rose, 75, has apologized, but said not all the allegations were accurate.

The allegations span from the 1990s to 2011 and include groping, phone calls and unwanted advances.

Charlie Rose is one of America’s most respected broadcasters.

He is known for conducting in-depth interviews, including with such high-profile guests as former President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffett, on his eponymous television program which first aired in 1991.

Charlie Rose, whose show goes out on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts CBS’s This Morning and is a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes.

His interviews have won him Emmy and Peabody awards, and he was named by Time magazine as one of its 100 most influential people in 2014.

PBS quickly suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose show following the allegations, which they described as “deeply disturbing”.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Charlie Rose said: “I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed.

“I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

Numerous high-profile figures, including Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein have been accused of harassment in recent weeks.

The accusations were sparked by multiple women speaking out against Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of harassment under the #metoo hashtag.


Morrissey has made surprising remarks in an interview in which he defended Kevin Spacey over allegations of abuse.

The former Smiths singer said Kevin Spacey had been “attacked unnecessarily”, adding it was “ridiculous” that the actor was being erased from an upcoming movie.

Morrissey, 58, also argued that definitions of harassment and assault have become too broad.

Speaking to the German newspaper Der Spiegel, he began by stating “rape is disgusting [and] every physical attack is repugnant”.

Last month, Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of harassing him when he was 14.

Anthony Rapp told Buzzfeed that Kevin Spacey, then aged 26, laid on top of him at a party at his apartment in 1986 and alleged the star “was trying to seduce” him.

Kevin Spacey said he was “beyond horrified” by the claim, adding that he did not remember the alleged incident.

Morrissey said Anthony Rapp’s claims “did not sound very credible to me”.

“I don’t know about you, but I was never in situations like this in my youth,” he told the publication.

“Never. I was always aware of what could happen. When you are in somebody’s bedroom, you have to be aware of where that can lead to.”

Morrissey also cast doubt on the dozens of women who have accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of assault.

“People know exactly what’s going on,” the singer reportedly said when asked about Harvey Weinstein inviting actresses to his hotel room, “and they play along”.

“Afterwards, they feel embarrassed or disliked. And then they turn it around and say: <<I was attacked, I was surprised>>.

“But if everything went well, and if it had given them a great career, they would not talk about it.”

“I hate rape… But in many cases, one looks at the circumstances and thinks that the person who is considered a victim is merely disappointed.”

More than fifty women, many of them some of the biggest names in Hollywood, have accused Harvey Weinstein of assault, harassment, abuse and rape, which allegedly took place over four decades.

Morrissey added that many famous musicians had slept with fans who were under the age of consent.

“Throughout the history of music and rock ‘n’ roll there have been musicians who slept with their groupies,” the singer said, while clarifying that he was not one of them.

“If you go through history, almost everyone is guilty of sleeping with minors. Why not throw everyone in jail right away?”


Netflix has decided to sever ties with Kevin Spacey amid a number of assault allegations against him.

The entertainment company said it would hold talks with House of Cards’ producers to see if production, which was suspended this week, could resume without Kevin Spacey.

Netflix also said it would not release Kevin Spacey’s movie about Gore Vidal.

Meanwhile, the UK police have opened an investigation into Kevin Spacey over an alleged assault.

On November 2, Kevin Spacey said he was seeking treatment after facing allegations of misconduct from a string of men.

Netflix suspended House of Cards production on October 31 following allegations by Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, who said Kevin Spacey had tried to “seduce” him when he was 14.

The Oscar-winning actor said he was “beyond horrified” to hear of the incident, which he said he did not remember.

House of Cards, an adaptation of the 1990 miniseries of the same name, was first broadcast in 2013.

The first season garnered nine Emmy nominations, becoming the first online streaming series to win such mainstream accolades.

A Netflix spokesman said in a statement: “Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey.

“We will continue to work with MRC [series producer Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.

“We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”

MRC said in a statement earlier that it was “deeply troubled” about the allegations against Kevin Spacey.

It said it had dealt with one incident in 2012 in which an unnamed crew member “shared a complaint about a specific remark and gesture made by Kevin Spacey”, that immediate action had been taken and that the issue had been resolved.

Kevin Spacey had “willingly participated in a training process”, MRC added.


House of Cards Season 3 has been leaked on Netflix two weeks ahead of its scheduled release.

Netflix denies that the leak was a marketing ploy, saying it was down to a “technical glitch”.

On Wednesday night, Netflix viewers in could watch the series online for just under half an hour.

The entire season was listed, along with episode titles and descriptions.

Although the mistake was sorted out quickly, some fans on Twitter said they were able to keep streaming episodes they had begun watching before they were removed.

Linda Louise Culkin, who engaged in a “persistent and malevolent” cyberstalking campaign against Kevin Spacey, has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Linda Louise Culkin, 55, threatened to cause physical harm to Kevin Spacey.

Last November, Linda Louise Culkin pleaded guilty to charges including posting threatening letters and sending false information regarding explosives.

Kevin Spacey, 55, said it was “difficult to measure the degree of terror” caused.

The actor was not present in the District Court in Boston but his victim impact statement was read out in court.

Responding, Linda Louise Culkin apologized for her actions: “I have some mental health issues.”

“I was overzealous. I cop to that. I fully apologize to him. I didn’t mean it to be so harsh,” she said.

Linda Louise Culkin was arrested in January 2012. Her apartment, in the town of Quincy, Massachusetts was reported to have images of Kevin Spacey with his eyes blacked out and numerous copies of a page entitled Killing Kevin Spacey.

The judge ordered her to pay Spacey $124,000 to compensate him for the bodyguards he hired during the two-year stretch when she harassed him.

Given the time already spent in prison following her arrest, Linda Louise Culkin has approximately 18 months left of her four-year sentence.
