The first, actor Anthony Rapp, accused Spacey of attacking him in a bed when he was 14 more than 30 years ago.

The claims come amid a wave of other sexual harassment and assault allegations against powerful men in Hollywood, including Oscar-winning mogul Harvey Weinstein, screenwriter James Toback and film director Brett Ratner. She said the fall-out from the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal had emboldened her to speak up against Spacey. "Shame on you for what you did to my son", said Unruh. "While he has tried his best to deal with it, as he says, it's always there".

Unruh said her son did not go to police at the time "largely because of embarrassment and fear", but she said he filed a police report last week and provided evidence to Nantucket police.

Unruh, who held a news conference with her attorney Wednesday, told reporters that Spacey bought drinks for her 18-year-old son at a dimly lit restaurant last year, then touched his genitals without permission, according to CBS Boston. She claimed the House of Cards actor bought her son "drink after drink" before allegedly reaching down the teen's trousers and grabbing his genitals, according to Buzzfeed News. Rapp said he and Spacy had been starring in plays on Broadway at the time.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Unruh tweeted on October 13 that Spacey, 58, had assaulted a "loved one". "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator". "Spacey absolutely denies the allegations". "No other information will be available at this time".

In a Vanity Fair piece, Talese expressed interest in profiling the disgraced American Beauty and House of Cards star.

"Does Gay Talese not realize that Kevin Spacey's victims have 'sucked it up" for decades, '" one person tweeted. Netflix says the now filming sixth season will be the last. "We will continue to work with [production company] MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".

After Netflix issued the ultimatum, they released a new statement to PEOPLE saying the actor had been suspended.

In light of the allegations against him, several members of the "House of Cards" production team have come forward with their own harrowing experience with the show's lead actor.

The writer also compared Spacey to the Dalai Lama, who likely "has done something he's ashamed of".
