Netflix cuts ties with actor Kevin Spacey amid sexual assault allegations

There is a generational divide between gay men when it comes to Kevin Spacey

"We will continue to work with (producers) MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time", the subscription channel said on Thursday.

Though an official termination of Spacey from House of Cards has yet to be confirmed as Netflix and MRC determine the show's future, Netflix has confirmed that it will not move forward with the Gore Vidal biopic starring Spacey.

Spacey's then-publicist said the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" and that "no other information will be available at this time".

British police confirmed Friday that they had opened an investigation into an allegation of sexual assault from a man in 2008, although officers never identify the subject of an inquiry unless and until they are charged.

Netflix had already announced that the upcoming sixth season of the show, which had been due to air in 2018, would be its last. The question now is whether the writers will kill off Frank - certainly well within the show's established tone - or figure out another way to explain his absence.

And MRC is "deeply troubled" by the allegations and have implemented "an anonymous complaint hotline, crisis counselors, and sexual harassment legal advisors for the crew". Rapp said the 26-year-old was holding him down tightly, but he was able to get away and left the apartment.

Spacey, who plays the show's male lead, Frank Underwood - a role that won him a Golden Globe in 2015 - has been at the center of a sexual abuse controversy that erupted in recent weeks.

Thirty years ago, Spacey was a 27-year-old actor in NY. The actor wrote a lengthy post Sunday in response to Rapp's revealing Buzzfeed interview, which was published earlier that evening.

The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor.

But unlike the bombshell dropped earlier this week about Spacey and a teenager from 30 years ago, these allegations are more recent, and they're centered right here in Maryland, on the set of "House of Cards".
