Kevin Spacey facing three new sexual assault allegations in London

The London Metropolitan Police, including officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command, are investigating Kevin Spacey regarding three new sexual assault claims, TMZ reports.

Three other complaints of sexual assault in London had already been made to officers, as well as a claim of sexual assault in Los Angeles.

In 2017 police began investigations into an allegation of a 2008 assault in Lambeth and two allegations of sexual assault in 2005, one in Westminster and one in Lambeth.

Five of the alleged offenses took place in London between 1996 and 2008, and the sixth in the western English city of Gloucester in 2013. The theater said in November that it had received 20 allegations of inappropriate behavior by Spacey, and had encouraged 14 of the complainants to go to the police.

"Yeah ... yeah. Tough one to talk about at the moment".

In an interview with Australian talk show host Andrew Denton, Pearce, 50, said that he had a "slightly difficult" time working with Spacey on the Curtis Hanson-directed 1997 neo-noir crime drama.

Australian actor Guy Pearce says the disgraced actor was "handsy" during their time together on LA Confidential. Unbelievable actor. Incredible actor.

Spacey responded at the time saying he had no memory of the encounter and came out as a gay man.

Following actor Anthony Rapp's accusations against Spacey in October 2017, he was dropped from a number of projects he was involved with.

After a very uncomfortable pause, he added, as if to clarify that it was indeed exactly what everyone was thinking, "Thankfully, I was 29 and not 14". "But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".
