New allegations leveled against actors Spacey, Piven

New allegations leveled against actors Spacey, Piven

"MRC and Netflix have made a decision to suspend production on House of Cards season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew", the two companies said in a statement.

They also said: "In response to last night's revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported".

Spacey had not previously been scheduled to work on set on Monday, according to a statement from the companies.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and American documentary filmmaker Tony Montana have come forward with accounts of how Spacey allegedly made unwanted advances and even groped one of them.

Gay rights activists have said linking his sexuality to an apology over allegations of sexual harassment was harmful to the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community.

At the time, Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14.

He claims that the House of Cards star grabbed his crotch at a Los Angeles bar in 2003. Rapp, then 14, was able to get away without any physical harm.

The actor tweeted a statement saying he was "horrified" at Rapp's story, and that he owed him a "sincere apology" for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

Beal, who accused Spacey of "grooming", said he thought the actor "was joking, but he took off his watch and gave it to me". The network has not commented on plans for a Gore Vidal biopic starring Spacey that is now in production.

The House Of Cards star approached Dan a second time while he was on his break, sitting on a bench smoking. Worse, he seemed to make a connection between being gay and sexual abuse of minors.

After this accusation, Spacey came out as a gay earlier this week.

The Old Vic said in a statement: "We are deeply dismayed to hear the allegations levied against Kevin Spacey". "Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault", she said. I put it into the back of my mind until I saw him come forward. Rapp, who starred on Broadway in "Rent", now stars in "Star Trek: Discovery".

A man has said he was left traumatised after waking up to find Hollywood star Kevin Spacey lying on him when he was a teenager in the 1980s. Wanda Sykes, outspoken member of the LGBT community, wrote on Twitter.
