Two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey was probably the most famous actor who was exposed in the Me Too scandal that rocked the nation back in October 2017.
When the countless male victims alleged the “Usual Suspects” actor abused them dating back for several decades, Spacey audaciously put out a statement revealing to the world that he was homosexual. Nobody was surprised that he was gay but it was shocking to see the illegal lengths Spacey would allegedly go to.
And now that Spacey’s life has largely been spent in court defending his innocence in the last couple years, another mysterious tragedy happened to one of his accusers.
On July 17th, prosecutors in Nantucket, Massachusetts dropped a sexual assault case against actor Kevin Spacey citing the “unavailability” of the witness.
The “House of Cards” actor was until recently. Kevin Spacey was on trial for a civil suit in Massachusetts where a then-18-year-old male claimed the two-time Academy Award winner sexually assaulted him over the course of a night in 2016.
The text exchange by the male and his girlfriend was rather alarming too. The accuser allegedly texted his girlfriend talking about Spacey, “He’s grabbed my d—k like 8 times,” and “He pulled my zipper down. And he invited me to his house.”
If you think that’s graphic, the texts became even more so as the conversation between his girlfriend revealed into the night. It was evidence that was about as damaging as you can possibly get to persuade a jury.
But in a weird twist of fate, the charges were suddenly dropped. It’s hard not to believe there was at least foul play or maybe coercion involved.
And in another trial, an incident was undeniably more tragic when another of Spacey’s sexual assault accusers suddenly passed away under mysterious circumstances.
The individual suing Spacey known as “John Doe,” an anonymous massage therapist who claimed during a private session at the actor’s home in Malibu, allegedly sexually assaulting Doe by grabbing his genitals twice in 2016.
In May, a federal judge in California allowed the case to move forward despite Spacey’s objection that the plaintiff’s identity was being shielded.
And just a month after the parties came to a plan for proceeding in the suit that detailed prospective discovery and envisioned a seven to 11-day trial, the plaintiff’s attorney informed Spacey and his counsel that the client “recently passed.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “No further detail is provided, and a request to the plaintiff’s attorney for more information has not been answered.”
Now, The lawsuit could continue by the heirs of “John Doe,” though the issue of anonymity provides a complicating wrinkle. To show standing to sue, the heirs would likely have to identify the deceased accuser after getting a green light to administer his estate in probate court. A judge might also be less inclined to protect the privacy interests of the deceased. Even if the case moves forward, the loss of the most important witness to the alleged sexual assault would make it difficult to litigate.
If they do move forward, then they have 90 days to do so. Of course, it would be a lot harder to prove a case against Spacey given that he won’t be able to testify due to his untimely death.
All of this just seems incredibly suspicious. Two months ago, the first accuser suddenly decided not to move forward with the case and now a second accuser died under unknown circumstances?
It doesn’t take a detective to see that’s a little too coincidental. It’s either that or he’s actually really innocent.
