Unruh first hinted at the accusation in a tweet that went viral after the first round of sexual-misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The "House of Cards" star was there, too, and he stuck his hand in her son's trousers and grabbed his genitals, Unruh said.

It's true that there's great value in profiling complex and unethical people and-at their best-these profiles can encourage empathy (not always sympathy, mind you) and a better understanding of the capabilities and failings of the human character.

Unruh, former news anchor for ABC affiliate WCVB, said Spacey provided her 18-year-old son with numerous drinks before reaching down his trousers and grabbing his genitals.

Former Boston television news anchor Heather Unruh holds back tears while speaking Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017, in Boston, about the alleged sexual assault of her teenage son by actor Kevin Spacey in the summer of 2016 on Nantucket.

The teenager had lied to Mr Spacey about his age, she said, but "whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to sexually assault him".

CEO Tim Cook appeared before Congress in early 2013 to defend Apple's strategy of holding most of its cash in Ireland. A lawyer representing Hamilton insists the tax arrangement is legal.

Spacey, who was aged 26 at the time, allegedly invited Rapp to his apartment for a party in 1986.

The claims against Spacey come against a backdrop of more widespread allegations of rape and molestation by powerful men in Hollywood and politics, with movie producer Harvey Weinstein having been accused by more than a dozen women of a range of disturbing encounters, including rape. "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator". Last week, a representative for the actor confirmed he was seeking treatment.

This is the latest in a growing number of allegations against the "House of Cards" star. "You are not alone", she said last week on Twitter. One man, who remained anonymous, even claimed Spacey tried to rape him as a teen.

In light of the allegations against him, several members of the "House of Cards" production team have come forward with their own harrowing experience with the show's lead actor. "MRC, in partnership with Netflix, will continue to evaluate a creative path forward for the program during the hiatus". Netflix has now suspended production on the show's sixth season.

Spacey tweeted an apology to Rapp, in which he also came out as a gay man - drawing widespread criticism for his coming out under those circumstances.
