Major heartbreaking change in Kevin Spacey lawsuit
A male massage therapist who accused disgraced Hollywood heavyweight Kevin Spacey of sexual assault has died - however the lawsuit the star faces may still continue according to court records.
Spacey, whose real name is Kevin Fowler, is being investigated in both London and Los Angeles over several allegations.
The 60-year-old faces a titan federal lawsuit alleging he assaulted the late masseur, and his lawyers have filed a “notice of statement noting plaintiff’s death” in the federal case on Tuesday, according to The Sun.
The filing said they were informed on September 11 of the masseur’s passing.
“No further information or details have been given to Mr Fowler’s counsel, but Plaintiff’s counsel stated they intended to notify the Court with additional information at an appropriate time in the future.”
The massage therapist claimed he was attacked by the Oscar winning actor three year ago during a massage session in Malibu, US.
The actor also allegedly grabbed the masseur’s hand twice and guided it to his private parts.
He has also been accused of asking to perform a sexual act on the massage therapist - which caused him to bolt from the session.
The lawsuit could continue despite the therapist’s death.
Spacey has been accused by more than a dozen men of sexual misconduct.
