Kevin Spacey investigated by Scotland Yard over second sexual assault allegation

The Usual Suspects star has faced multiple accusations of inappropriate sexual behaviour - including rape - since Anthony Rapp accused him of making sexual advances on him when he was 14.

Kevin Spacey is reportedly facing a new investigation over allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to 2005.

This new claim is in addition to a 2008 assault being investigated by the Met.

Spacey was artistic director of The Old Vic from 2004 to 2015. According to Variety, the complaint was lodged after bosses at London's Old Vic theater received 20 reports of inappropriate behavior by Spacey, but it is not known if the current complaint being investigated is connected.

Scotland Yard confirmed officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating the complaint.

The alleged victim came forward on Friday, more than two weeks after another male said he was assaulted by the same man in 2008.

The allegation was made just a day after the Old Vic released results of its own internal investigation into the matter.

London's Metropolitan Police said it was examining an allegation of sexual assault against a man in 2005 in the Lambeth area of the city.

In response to the claims, Spacey issued a post on Twitter in which he wrote that he did not remember the alleged incident and also announced he is living as a gay man.

Kate Varah, the Old Vic's executive director, issued an apology on November 16 to the alleged victims.

In response, Netflix severed all ties with Spacey, sacking him from House of Cards in the process. He has denied allegations of assault, but said he is now seeking "evaluation and treatment" of his behavior.
