Kevin Spacey claims sex assault accuser LIED about his age
Kevin Spacey has claimed that the 18-year-old man which accused him of groping told Spacey he was older and welcomed flirting.
The notorious Hollywood actor pleaded NOT guilty to sexually assaulting the young man in 2016.
The plea was entered on the actor's behalf, which happens automatically under Massachusetts law.
The incident happened in Nantucket, and Spacey has been ordered to have zero contact with his accuser following the sexual assault charges.
The Daily Mail are reporting that the former House of Cards actor claims the teenager; "said he was a 23-year-old student studying business at Wake Forest University."
He also maintains the young restaurant worker "sought out a friend for the specific purpose of introducing him" to Spacey.
In court yesterday, (Spacey also was caught speeding before appearing) the motion claims the teen "welcomed drinks" from the famous actor and allowed him to; "put his arm around around him near the piano while they did sing-a-longs and even left the bar to smoke."
It's alleged that the young man gave his phone number to Spacey, which the motion states suggested "mutual and consensual flirting".
Spacey doesn't actually deny groping the teen, but it does state that the teenager "did not object to the alleged touching, he did not ask Spacey to stop and he did not remove himself from the situation".
The young woman who was in contact with the accuser was never told about the alleged assault, it is purported.
A number of accusations have emerged about the veteran movie star, such as Anthony Rapp's explosive claims;
CNN reported yesterday that Spacey gave a nod of acknowledgement following the judge's order for him to refrain from contacting his accuser.
A spokeman lawyer said: "The commonwealth is requesting that Mr Spacey be ordered to stay away and no contact with the named victim and his family."
Judge Thomas Barrett said; "Certainly the court will impose those conditions."
The 59-year-old actor was seen arriving at court surrounded by paparazzi, less than a five-minute walk from the place where the alleged assault took place; Club Car lounge.
Spacey was silent on the claim and refused to comment as he left the courtroom and headed to his car. The next hearing date is March 4, but the actor is not obliged to attend.
