"He grabbed my whole package": Kevin Spacey is accused of sexual assault by a second Hollywood figure

Filmmaker and director Tony Montana, pictured, claims Kevin Spacey groped him in the Coronet Pub in Los Angeles in 2003

A SECOND Hollywood figure has come forward with sexual assault allegations against actor Kevin Spacey.

Tony Montana, a filmmaker and director, says the House of Cards star groped him in a Los Angeles pub in 2003.
Montana, who was in his 30s at the time, claimed Spacey grabbed him by the crotch at The Coronet Pub in West Hollywood while he was ordering a drink.

He told online gossip website Radar: “I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me. He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch.
Kevin Spacey has been accused of sexual advances in 1986 and in 2003
I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it. I paid for my drink and got away from him.”
He claims Spacey then followed him into the loo, where the Hollywood star then allegedly told Montana: “This designates ownership.”
Montana, best known for Hollywood cult film "Overnight", said the alleged encounter was the last time he saw Spacey.
"I never talked to anyone about it except for therapists," he told Radar.
Anthony Rapp, known more for Star Trek, alleged Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was 14

Montana's claims follow allegations made by actor Anthony Rapp, best known Star Trek: Discovery, that Spacey assaulted him after a party in 1986 when he was just 14-years-old.
He said Spacey had laid down on top of him, adding in an interview with BuzzFeed News: "I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually."
Responding to the allegations made by Rapp, Spacey - who won Oscars for The Usual Suspects and American Beauty - said he was "beyond horrified" but did not remember the encounter.
Spacey said he owed Rapp a "sincere apology" for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".
He said: “I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. I’m beyond horrified to hear this story.
I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago.

But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.”
Spacey also announced that he was now living "as a gay man" but was widely criticised for choosing this moment to come out.
The 58-year-old actor since been stripped of an International Emmy Award and his acclaimed sixth Netflix series House of Cards - in which Spacey stars as the manipulative, ruthless politician Frank Underwood - would be the last - would be the last.
The company said the decision was made months ago but that it found the current allegations “deeply troubling”.
Yesterday, Netflix went further and said that production on the sixth series was being suspended.
Representatives for Spacey have yet to comment on the latest allegations.
