Kevin Spacey Hit With A New Lawsuit After Court Victories
After his recent court victories, Spacey was slammed with another lawsuit by a male massage therapist for sexual harassment.
As reported by The Blast, the lawsuit claims that Spacey arranged for a massage with a therapist to whom he made sexual advances. He also allegedly offered to pay for sexual favors.
According to the therapist, Spacey booked three 90-minute massages at the New York Edition Hotel in August and September 2016, where he made unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances.
In the court documents, the masseur alleged that Spacey indulged in some yoga poses, which led to his genitals being exposed, ultimately causing distress and discomfort to the therapist.
The suit states, “Spacey repeatedly became sexually aroused during the sessions and even offered extra money in exchange for sexual favors.”
The massage therapist claims the sessions with Spacey have caused him to suffer from anxiety, depression, and PTSD to this day. He also fears “for his livelihood as a massage therapist, husband, and father.”
