Thank you for reading the news about Anthony Rapp sues Kevin... and now with the details
Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Rapp alleges Spacey made a sexual advance to him when he was a teenage.
Actor Anthony Rapp and another man filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against actor Kevin Spacey, accusing him of sexual assaults in the 1980s when they were teens.
Rapp, who starred in Rent on Broadway and in Star Trek: Discovery on TV, had first spoken out against the Oscar-winning Spacey in 2017, a decision that led to others speaking up and Spacey's up-to-then celebrated career coming to an abrupt end.
In the lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, Rapp detailed what he has said publicly about Spacey, that the older actor made a sexual advance to him when a teenage Rapp attended a party.
When Rapp first made the accusation, Spacey issued a statement saying he didn't remember the encounter but apologized.
The other plaintiff, who goes by the initials C.D., said that he met Spacey as a teenager while taking an acting class, and that Spacey invited him to his apartment on multiple occasions and engaged in sexual acts with him. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff said Spacey attempted to assault him sexually on his final visit.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
An email seeking comment was sent to Spacey's attorney.
Since the allegations started emerging, Spacey has been embroiled in other legal cases. Last October, prosecutors in Los Angeles rejected a sexual battery case because the accuser had died.
In July, prosecutors in Massachusetts dropped a case after the 18-year-old man who accused Spacey of groping him refused to testify.
The Associated Press does not normally name people alleging sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, as Rapp has done.
