Heather Unruh to detail family member's sexual abuse allegations against Kevin Spacey

Heather Unruh to detail family member's sexual abuse allegations against Kevin Spacey

She said her son was unaware that the Hollywood star was a "sexual predator". "While he has tried his best to deal with it, as he says, it's always there". Broadway veteran Anthony Rapp was the first accuser to speak out, telling BuzzFeed News that Spacey made a sexual advance at him in 1986, when he was 14.

Unruh said her son did not report Spacey immediately because of "embarrassment and fear".

Kevin Spacey attends the Build Series to discuss his new play "Clarence Darrow" on May 24, 2017 in NY.

Seated to her right at the press briefing was attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has years of experience having represented victims of sexual abuse by the Catholic Church. An unknown woman stepped forward and told the young man to leave the restaurant. "I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him".

Heather Unruh told reporters Wednesday that the actor stuck his hand down her son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at the Club Car Restaurant in July 2016. "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator". A publicist said last week that Spacey is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". "No other information is available at this time".

Production on House of Cards has been indefinitely suspended since October 31, and Netflix executives have decided the streaming network won't air new episodes if the actor remains involved in the series. CNN managed to talk to a couple of current and former employees of the show who either experienced being sexually harassed by Spacey or witnessed his rude behavior over the last several years. But ultimately the company made a decision to suspend production of the show's last season indefinitely.

She also spoke directly to Spacey.

After Netflix issued the ultimatum, they released a new statement to PEOPLE saying the actor had been suspended.

The alleged victim also reported it to police by phone sometime this year, but it's unclear if police are investigating, TMZ reported. With Spacey being one of the producers of the show and its lead star, this gave him power on the set and prevented the crew member from coming forward and telling his story.
