Kevin Spacey has demanded the unnamed man who is trying to destroy his life identify himself.
In new documents, obtained by The Blast, the disgraced actor insists his sexual battery accuser should come forward and stop hiding behind the anonymity of ‘John Doe’ – the pseudonym used by plaintiffs who don’t want to reveal their true identity.
Spacey’s accuser is also suing the actor for gender violence, battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.
The Oscar winner argues his accuser won’t be able to establish a need for anonymity in court and should be unmasked now. He requests that the case be thrown out if the man is not publicly identified.
The plaintiff claims he was assaulted during a massage session at a private residence in Malibu in 2016. He maintains Spacey grabbed his hand and forced him to fondle the star’s genitals and made an offer for oral sex.
Meanwhile, last month (January 2019), “The Usual Suspects” star appeared in court to face another accuser’s groping allegations after the judge overseeing that case threw out the star’s request to sit out the arraignment hearing.
The actor is charged with inappropriate behaviour with a then-18-year-old in July, 2016.
His lawyer issued a not guilty plea, prompting Nantucket District Court Judge Thomas Barrett to schedule a pre-trial hearing for 4 March, assuring “The Usual Suspects” star he didn’t need to show up in person.
Spacey agreed not to have any contact with the alleged victim.
The actor has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of people following claims made by actor Anthony Rapp in 2017, accusing Spacey of assaulting him when Rapp was 14 years old.
The allegations cost Spacey his job on Netflix drama “House of Cards” and he was edited out of director Ridley Scott’s Getty family kidnapping film “All the Money in the World” – and replaced by Christopher Plummer.
