LOS ANGELES (CBSNewYork/AP) — Kevin Spacey is being cut from Ridley Scott’s finished film “All the Money in the World” and replaced by Christopher Plummer just over one month before it’s supposed to hit theaters after new allegations against Spacey emerged Wednesday.
Former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh fought back tears as she told her story.
“In July 2016, Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted my son,” she said Wednesday morning.
Unruh says the alleged abuse happened at the Club Car Restaurant in Nantucket. Her son was 18-years-old. She says Spacey took advantage of a starstruck young man and brought on the booze.
“Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink and when my son was drunk, Spacey made his move and sexually assaulted him.”
Unruh says Spacey stuck his hands inside her son’s pants, and claims they didn’t report the crime at the time for fear and embarrassment but have since spoken to Nantucket police.
Nantucket Police Chief Bill Pittman said Massachusetts law doesn’t allow them to confirm or deny a report of sexual assault.
Cape & Islands Assistant District Attorney Tara Miltimore said a person has provided information to police about an “indecent assault and battery” and that authorities are waiting to hear from the person’s attorney.
In an October Buzzfeed article, actor Anthony Rapp alleged he was sexually assaulted by Spacey in a bedroom at a party. At the time, Rapp was 14 and Spacey was in his 20s.
At least 13 men have accused Spacey of inappropriate sexual conduct since the article.
“Shame on you for what you did to my son and shame on you for using your apology to Anthony to come out as a gay man,” Unruh said, flanked by her daughter and lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented hundreds of clergy sexual abuse victims.
Unruh said her son had never met Spacey before the encounter, and Garabedian said they don’t know why Spacey was on the island at the time.
They are looking for a woman who was at the bar and came to her son’s aid that night, according to Unruh.
Garabedian says the case is still within the statute of limitations for criminal charges.
Spacey hasn’t responded to the new allegations.
