Hudson Valley Man Alleges Relationship with Kevin Spacey at 14
After several allegations surfaced about Kevin Spacey, a disturbing account that allegedly took place right here in the Hudson Valley has come to light.
Last week Kevin Spacey was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making sexual advances towards him when the actor was only 14 years old. Since then more accusations have surfaced, including people currently working with Spacey during the now-suspended filming of House of Cards.
On Thursday another disturbing story of Spacey engaging with an underage boy was published by Vulture. According to the article, the alleged incident began back in 1981 when Spacey was teaching a weekend acting class at a local church . The report claims Spacey befriended the 12-year-old boy at Saint Thomas’s Church in Mamaroneck.
Spacey bumped into him two years later while the child was waiting in line with his parents to attend a Shakespeare in the Park performance. Spacey took the boy for a walk and that's when things turned.
He said, “I want to see you, and I want you to come to my apartment.” He said he’d always been really drawn to me at the acting classes, but had stayed away because I was 12. So I’m like [laughs] … now that I was 14. That was probably a 15-minute walk, and then I went back to be with my parents.
The two exchanged phone numbers and agreed to meet up later. That's when the accuser says the then 24-year-old actor and he started a sexual relationship. The interview goes on to graphically describe how the relationship ended with what the accuser calls an attempted rape.
Kevin Spacey's lawyer responded to the article in Vulture with a short statement that simply says “Mr. Spacey absolutely denies the allegations.”
