Spacey Strategy

Kevin Spacey’s attorneys are going after his accuser’s cell phone and personal cloud records from 2017. A judge has granted a motion that the accuser retain all cell phone data from that year, but did not make a final ruling. The defense intends to argue that the victim did not feel threatened or treat their encounter as an assault until months later, when his mother was financially motivated to go after the actor.

MEANWHILE — DailyMail reports that Spacey’s alleged victim never told his girlfriend about the alleged assault, the owner of the club never saw Spacey act inappropriately, and no one talked about an assault after Spacey attendee’s the establishment. However, it’s been confirmed Spacey was hitting on the young man. But one waiter even says the whole encounter was blown out of proportion.

AND YET — The girlfriend of the accuser says she received a snapchat of Spacey’s hands on the alleged victim’s pants, though she never heard him say anything about anything explicitly illegal.

McKellen Backtracks

Ian McKellen has backtracked comments made on an LGBT podcast indicated actor Kevin Spacey and director Bryan Singer sexually assaulted young men because they weren’t open and honest about their sexuality.

In a Tweet he said, “I suggested that if closeted people were instead open about their sexuality they wouldn’t abuse others. That, of course, is wrong.”

WORTH NOTING: Both Spacey and Singer insist on their innocence.

Spacey Gets The Boot

Kevin Spacey has been replaced. The actor has been removed from the wall at Catch LA—a Hollywood hotspot—and replaced with former Columbia Records President, Clive Davis. It has been a year since Spacey’s accusers—both in the U.S and the U.K—have spoken out.  While there are currently multiple investigations, the 59-year-old has not been criminally charged

Spacey’d Out

Kevin Spacey is in trouble again. Now he’s being sued for sexual battery AND false imprisonment. A multi-claim complaint filed in Los Angeles alleges the actor forced an unnamed victim to touch him inappropriately during a hotel room encounter in October 2016. The victim is a massage therapist who had been performing professional services for spacey in a hotel room. When he tried to leave, the document alleges, Spacey stood in the doorway to prevent the exit. A previous alleged attack against actor Anthony Rapp is currently under investigation by authorities in the UK and Los Angeles.
