Another of Kevin Spacey's Accusers Dies on Christmas Day | 22 Words

Since 2017, actor Kevin Spacey's career has gone slowly downhill due to a series of sexual assault allegations made against him.

The world has been in a never-ending debate over whether Spacey is innocent or guilty of these crimes, but nevertheless, the actor has been completely rejected from the showbiz world.

After "John Doe," the man who accused Spacey of sexual assault, passed away, everyone was hoping the case could still continue but this wasn't the case.

And now, another of Spacey's accusers has passed away on Christmas day.

Kevin Spacey is a timeless face of Hollywood...

This was, of course, until the sixty-year-old actor was accused of sexual assault back in 2017.

It all started with actor, Anthony Rapp...

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Rapp claimed that Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was just fourteen-years-old.

The alleged assault happened at a party in Toronto in 1986...

Spacey, who was twenty-six-years-old at the time, apparently laid on top of Rapp and tried to "seduce him."

Spacey claimed to have no memory of the incident...

In a public statement, he said that he was "beyond horrified to hear this story," and, as it was over thirty years ago, he "honestly does not remember the encounter." "I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior," he went on to say.

This was the moment in which Spacey chose to come out as gay.

Which was heavily criticized, not because of his identity, but because of the timing. Gay Times editor, Josh Rivers, told the BBC: "He doesn't get a pass just because he's gay."

More allegations were then made against the actor...

Mexican actor, Roberto Cavazos, claimed that he had a couple of "nasty encounters" with Spacey when working together. Tony Montana also made claims against him in an interview with Radar Online, in which he said that he was "forcefully groped" by Spacey in a Los Angeles bar in 2003.

In November 2017, a crew member from House of Cards complained about a gesture and remark that Spacey made in 2012.

This lead on to Netflix refusing to be involved with House of Cards further if Spacey was going to be a part of the production. They also put a stop to the release of the movie Gore that Spacey starred in.

Things only began to get worse for the actor...

To this very day, a total of thirty individuals have made allegations against Spacey that came from both the U.S. and Britain. He was removed from all upcoming productions that he was involved with and formal investigations were underway.

In December 2018, Spacey was then charged with the sexual assault of a teenager at a bar in Massachusetts in 2016.

But, earlier this year, prosecutors in Massachusetts dropped the criminal case relating to indecent assault and battery, which stemmed from this charge.

One of the accusers was a man who went by the name John Doe...

This man wanted to keep his identity private and confidential, so he went under the court's alias name throughout the trial.

The allegations that John Doe made against Spacey were chilling...

The lawsuit alleged that Spacey had grabbed the masseur's hand and had guided it to his genitals. He was also accused of grabbing the victim's shoulders and attempting to kiss and grope him. It was when Spacey asked the masseur to perform a sexual act when John Doe ran from the situation.

Of course, Spacey strongly denied the allegations.

But John Doe went on to sue him for sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and false imprisonment.

It was confirmed on the 11th of September of this year that John Doe had passed away.

The Sun reported that the filing said, "No further information or details have been given to Mr. Fowler’s counsel (real name Kevin Fowler), but Plaintiff’s counsel stated they intended to notify the Court with additional information at an appropriate time in the future."

But despite John Doe's death, the case was dropped against Spacey...

The announcement was made by the LA County District Attorney’s office earlier this year who outlined the reasons behind this decision.

A spokesperson said this...

"The sexual assault allegations cannot be proven without the participation of the victim. Thus, the case was declined."

Things have remained fairly quiet on the Spacey front since the death...

Until now.

Another of Spacey's accusers has passed away...

via: Getty Images

On Christmas Day, just 2 days ago.

The accuser's name was Ari Behn.

He was an author who was married to Princess Martha Louise of Norway for fourteen years until their divorce in 2016.

His accusation was made in 2017...

He accused Spacey of groping him at a 2007 concert celebrating the Nobel Peace Prize. He had said, "We had a great talk, he sat right beside me. After 5 minutes, he said, 'Hey, let's go out and have a cigarette.' Then he put his hand under the table and grabs me by the balls." He says he then told Spacey, "Er, maybe later."

Spacey never responded to Behn's accusations...

And it is now too late.

It has been reported that Behn's death was suicide...

He took his own life on Christmas Day, leaving behind his devastated family and 3 daughters.

A statement was made by the Norweigan Royal Family...

"We are grateful that we got to know him," King Harald and Queen Sonja said of Behn in their statement to the BBC. "We grieve that our grandchildren have now lost their beloved father."

It has emerged that Behn struggled with alcoholism for many years...

In 2009, he said he feared he wouldn't be able to see his 3 children grow up because of his struggle with alcoholism.

His tragic death comes days after Spacey posted on social media...

The disgraced actor posted a "festive" video on his Instagram page, and it's safe to say it's rather odd.

Spacey is in character of the former House of Cards Frank Underwood...

"Been a pretty good year, and I’m glad to have my health back," says the ersatz version of Frank, who in House of Cards is, of course, well and truly dead. “In light of that, I’ve made some changes in my life, and I invite you to join me," he goes on to say.

The video was very unexpected...

Spacey’s character goes on to cast his 2020 vote for “more good in this world," stressing that he is “dead serious" with the out-of-character message.

Spacey is yet to comment on the tragic death of Ari Behn.

We send our thoughts and condolences to Behn's family during this difficult time. Rest In Peace, Ari.
