That’s because Star Trek: Discovery star Rapp would come out to accuse Spacey of sexually assaulting him when Rapp was aged just 14. Spacey, he claimed, had invited Rapp to a party. At the end of the event, however, the veteran actor had allegedly put the teenager onto a bed and then climbed on top of him.

“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold,” Rapp said to BuzzFeed News at the time. “But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me. He was trying to seduce me.” Rapp went on to say that he froze for a moment, then wriggled away from Spacey and went into the bathroom.

Then, Rapp told BuzzFeed, he eventually prepared to leave the apartment. According to Rapp, however, Spacey was right next to him as he did so. “As I opened the door to leave, [Spacey] was leaning on the front door[frame]. And he was like, ‘Are you sure you wanna go?’” he revealed. Rapp added, “I said, ‘Yes, good night,’ and then I did leave.”
