Shortly after the required training session, it was revealed that House Of Cards actor Kevin Spacey was facing allegations of sexually harassing a minor, 14-year-old Anthony Rapp, at a party hosted by Spacey. He then met Spacey again while in line for Shakespeare in the Park in 1983, he said, and this time Spacey gave him his number, and they began a relationship.

Kevin Spacey did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. "In response to last night's revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported".

"I was obsessed with him", he said of his feelings toward Spacey at the time.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos accused Spacey of "squeez [ing]" him during Spacey's tenure as artistic director of London's Old Vic theater.

Kevin Spacey had also apologized for the alleged attempt to seduce a 14-year-old Anthony, an encounter the two-time Oscar victor denied recalling but attributed to drunkenness as he also came out as a gay man on Twitter. "No other information is available at this time", Staci Wolfe said in a statement. Spacey is said to have invited many a young male actor to the Old Vic to "talk about their careers".

On the day when other allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced, a former Old Vic employee told The Guardian, "We were all involved in keeping it quiet". That's what happened to me the second encounter. Spacey allegedly took a 15-minute walk with the teen, exchanged phone numbers with him, and said, "I want to see you, and I want you to come to my apartment".

Spacey's life has been similarly in turmoil since Rapp came forward with his claims. Production of Netflix series House of Cards, on which Spacey stars, has also been suspended.

Four men have come forward to accuse Spacey of sexual misconduct. Hit TV drama "This Is Us" has removed a reference to Spacey from one of its episodes following the allegations.
