Man Comes Forward to Describe Sexual Relationship He Had With Kevin Spacey When He Was 14; Kevin Spacey Foundation to Help Young Actors and Artists Deletes Its Website

At Vulture, a claim of an "extended" sexual relationship with Spacey.

After Rappís public statement, a man who was friendly with a member of the New York staff approached the magazine to talk about Spacey. At the age of 14, he says, he began a sexual relationship with the actor, who was then 24, that ended with what he describes as an attempted rape. The man is now a 48-year-old artist living on the East Coast with a long-term partner, and he wishes to remain anonymous. "I have worked really hard to have a nice life and feel safe, and I'm not giving that up for him," he told me, sitting outside on a park bench. "I don' want them to be able to find their way back to me."

I don't get this -- as you're about to see, he describes his relationship with Spacey in such detail that Spacey would know exactly who it was, assuming it happened.

But whatever, here's what he claims:

He first met Spacey in 1981, when the actor was a guest teacher at a weekend acting class he took in Westchester County; he was then a 12-year-old student. Spacey was 22 and working in the New York theater scene. They met again by chance in line at Shakespeare in the Park in 1983, when the student was 14 years old; Spacey had made his Broadway debut in Henrik Ibsenís Ghosts the year prior. After that meeting, he says, Spacey gave him his phone number, and the two began a sexual relationship.

The former student came forward, he says, because he was enraged at Spacey's response to Rapp's story. We have done our best to verify his account of his time with Spacey. We confirmed with two sources that Spacey taught at the acting school in 1981; checked the plausibility of dates and other details in his account; and spoke with people close to the former student, who said that he had spoken about his relationship with Spacey as far back as the 1990s. We also spoke with his current therapist, who confirmed that he began speaking about it in sessions in 2015. And we have confirmed the other abusive relationship the former student discusses. We reached out to Spacey to talk about the relationship. He responded through his lawyer, who wrote in an email, "Mr. Spacey absolutely denies the allegations."

Okay, I don't know about any of that. I don't know how you say "I want to be anonymous" and then specify exactly who you are.

But it's what the guy says.

Meanwhile...



Mm-hm.

Spacey founded the nonprofit in London in 2010, and later expanded the foundation to the United States. The foundation's mission is to provide mentorship and grant opportunities to "school children, young people and emerging artists in the performing arts and film." Spacey held auditions with 1,200 young artists through the foundation by 2015.

Can I tell you my little bit of anti-male bias? I don't trust men who want to be around children. Men do not like other people's children, and barely tolerate their own.

Although I can ask questions of a particularly interesting kid for a few minutes, you gotta know I'm extremely jealous of the attention this accomplishment-free child is getting at my expense. I sit there asking dumb questions just waiting to adroitly turn the conversation back to myself, where it should have been from the start.

And that's hard, because let me tell you something: Kids never ask you about you. They only have two topics they have any interest in: Themselves and whatever stupid thing they learned in school today, and Dinosaurs.

My Dinosaur Smalltalk is rusty, if I'm being honest. (By the way: especially don't trust men with children if their Dinosaur Rap is fluent, well-rehearsed, and charming. If they start talking knowledgeably about Pokemon, have them arrested on the spot.)

"Children should be seen and not heard," they say, to which I reply: Do they really need to be seen? Can they be seen from a distance? Like, fading into the background? Or maybe out through the windows, doing some good old fashioned yardwork?

Anyway. People are only interesting to the exact degree to which they can give you something you want. As children really can't give you anything -- at least nothing legal -- the proper attitude is to not be interested in them.

Benign neglect, I'm saying, with the emphasis on the "neglect" and not so much on the "benign."

Unless they want to talk about you and how amazing you are. Which they never do. Self-centered little brats.
