The list of accusations against Kevin Spacey has grown overnight, with a former member of the Norwegian Royal Family claiming he was groped by the Hollywood actor at an event in 2007.
Ari Behn, who until recently was married to Princess Martha Louise who is fourth in line for the throne, told Norwegian radio station P4 that the former House of Cards star was sitting right next to him after a Nobel Peace Prize concert.
Behn, who was still married at the time, claims Spacey asked him to go outside to smoke before grabbing his testicles under the table.
"I got more than I bargained for," he said.
"I had black hair back then and was 10 years younger so was right up his alley," the 45-year-old author and playwright said.
Allegations against Spacey first surfaced earlier this year when fellow actor Anthony Rapp accused him of making sexual advances when Rapp was 14-year-old.
Spacey issued an apology at the time for his “drunken behaviour” and said he was “horrified” and did not remember the incident occurring.
Since then dozens more people, including former and current House of Cards employees, have come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against the actor.
Netflix fired Spacey soon after the allegations surfaced and halted production of its award-winning show. However earlier this week Content Chief Ted Sarandos said the filming of the show’s final season would begin without Spacey’s character.
