AceShowbiz - Kevin Spacey has been spotted in public for the first time in over a year since he was hit with sexual assault allegations by multiple people. On Friday, December 28, the 59-year-old was pictured leaving a warehouse.
In photos obtained by Daily Mail, the way the disgraced actor dressed was bizarre. He looked unkempt in an undershirt which highlighted his protruding belling, sagging wind pants and unlaced shoes. He also hid his face with a makeshift balaclava.
Holding two books and carrying a black backpack with a red and blue pencil, he appeared to have just been attending a rehearsal. The former "House of Cards" star was seen entering a green minivan and leaving the place with a man who looked to be his manager and constant companion Evan Lowenstein. Another car with a woman inside carefully stopped right in front of Spacey's car, seemingly to shield it.
The outing comes several days after he was formally charged with indecent assault and battery for the alleged attack on former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh's son. The victim claimed Spacey groped him without his consent in a Nantucket restaurant in 2016, when he was 18 years old. A state police report later revealed that Unruh's son filmed the incident and sent the Snapchat video to his girlfriend, who has confirmed the boy's story.
Spacey is due to be arraigned in Nantucket District Court on January 7, 2019. He hopes to skip a court appearance in Massachusetts. His lawyer has asked a judge to allow the Academy Award-winning actor to miss the arraignment, but prosecutors urged the judge to deny the motion.
Spacey has not directly the accusations by Unruh's son. He, however, released a video in which he reprises his "House of Cards" character Frank Underwood to address numerous sexual assault allegations against him.
"I know you what you want. You want me back," he said in the clip, which has been mocked by Twitter users including some fellow actors. "Of course, some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all. They're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and what I got what I deserved... But you wouldn't believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn't rush to judgments without facts, would you?"
