Ex-TV Anchor Says Son Was Sexually Assaulted by Spacey in 2016

Sympathetic Gay Talese Wants to Profile Kevin Spacey

Sympathetic Gay Talese Wants to Profile Kevin Spacey

"The victim, my son, was a starstruck, straight 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator, or that he was about to become his next victim", Unruh said.

Unruh said an unidentified woman witnessed the incident and "told him to run" when Spacey went to the bathroom of the Nantucket establishment.

Garabedian said Unruh's "brave" son, now a college sophomore, was 18 when the alleged assault occurred.

Kevin Spacey finally has someone sticking up for him in public, though the thoughts expressed by 85-year-old author Gay Talese aren't going over well.

The family lawyer also told reporters Wednesday that his client had spoken to Nantucket police, who were investigating.

Even before those allegations surfaced, Unruh said in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein scandal last month that Spacey had assaulted someone close to her.

Unruh said her son did not report Spacey immediately because of "embarrassment and fear". "Reports of sexual assaults are confidential under Massachusetts General Law", a spokesperson for the police department said.

Trump announces Broadcom to move headquarters back to US
President Trump on Thursday announced a major semiconductor company will be relocating to the United States. But Broadcom said it would make the move even if no corporate tax reform comes to fruition.

Netflix late week dropped Spacey, its star actor on hit series "House of Cards" whose career is in free-fall over spiraling assault accusations.

Anthony Rapp claimed that a 26-year-old Spacey tried to seduce the then-14-year-old actor in 1986.

Seated to her right at the press briefing was attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has years of experience having represented victims of sexual abuse by the Catholic Church. "I don't know how much she saw", the former news anchor said.

Spacey, 58, has faced several accusations of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.

"To Kevin Spacey I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son and shame on you for using your apology to Anthony Rapp to come out as a gay man", said Unruh on Wednesday. That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention from what you really are - a sexual predator. But ultimately the company made a decision to suspend production of the show's last season indefinitely.

Spacey has said he was "beyond horrified" by Rapp's previous claim of assault. Spacey apologized in an October 29 tweet - his last - but also said he had no memory of the alleged encounter.

In response, the Los Gatos-based streaming service cut ties with Spacey, who starred in and executive produced the show for six seasons.
