“Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” rep Staci Wolfe said in a statement. “No other information is available at this time.”
Filmmaker Tony Montana, actor Roberto Cavazos and an anonymous man came forward with new accusations against the “House of Cards” actor after actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey made an unwanted sexual advance on him at a party when Rapp was 14. Spacey apologized while adding that he didn’t remember the incident.
“We view Kevin seeking treatment as a positive step,” said Netflix and Media Rights Capital, the producers of “House of Cards,” in a statement to media outlets. “We continue to take this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production and have nothing further to share at this time.”
The show, featuring Spacey as manipulative politician Frank Underwood, suspended production of its final season on Tuesday “until further notice.”
Explosive accusations against prominent figures in show business and elsewhere have continued to pour in after a number of women accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault.
Spacey’s rep did not immediately return a request for further comment.
