Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault controversy is alarming and disturbing for all fans and other audiences, alike. On November 2, 2017, CNN reported that Spacey — the star and an executive producer of ‘House of Cards’ — had created a “toxic” environment by making crude comments and engaging in non-consensual touching of young male staffers, citing eight production sources.
MRC severed its relationship with Kevin Spacey and scrapped a season of ‘House of Cards’ in 2017 after multiple people came forward to allege a pattern of sexually predatory conduct. The news has been out and about this incident since then. MRC said it had “no knowledge whatsoever” of Spacey’s alleged on-set misconduct prior to the CNN report.
However, it was on Monday, November 22, 2021, when MRC filed a petition in the Los Angeles Superior Court to confirm the arbitration award after it was upheld in a confidential appeal. The news is in relation to the fact that an arbitrator has ordered Kevin Spacey and his companies to pay nearly $31 million to MRC, the production company behind the popular OTT political thriller series ‘House of Cards’, after finding that the Hollywood star had breached his contract by violating the company’s sexual harassment policy, reports Variety.
Spacey and his companies, M. Profitt Productions and Trigger Street Productions, were ordered to pay $29.5 million in damages plus $1.2 million in attorneys’ fees and $235,000 in costs. Kevin Spacey, according to Variety, was among the first major Hollywood figures to be accused in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in October 2017.
What is Kevin Spacey doing now?
Spacey appeared in the 2018 film Billionaire Boys Club before the assault allegations surfaced and that was pretty much the last time we saw him on screen. However, in May 2021, an announcement followed that Kevin Spacey had been cast in the crime drama ‘The Man Who Drew God.’ In August 2021, he was reported filming in California ‘Peter Five Eight.’Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
