Kevin Spacey investigated by Scotland Yard over third complaint of sexual assault

Kevin Spacey is reportedly under investigation for a third allegation of sexual assault in London.

The Metropolitan Police Service said this in a statement. In early November, London police opened an investigation into an allegation of sexual assault made against Spacey.

Following the first allegation of sexual assault, Netflix sacked Spacey from House of Cards and chose to not move ahead with a film starring Spacey as Gore Vidal.

"On December 13 we received an allegation that the man sexually assaulted a man (Victim 3) in 2005 in Westminster", a Metropolitan Police spokesman said last night.

Conte admits below-par Chelsea were exhausted
Chelsea play host to Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, hoping to keep pace with Manchester United in the title race. Their first team has been out much more recently, however, in a mid week league cup tie against Arsenal .

It's important to note that Spacey hasn't yet been criminally charged in any of the public investigations into sexual assaults that he's been accused of. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are now looking into these new allegations.

Spacey said he did not remember the encounter but apologised for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour".

Theatre bosses have received over 20 complaints against Spacey since actor Anthony Rapp claimed Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was 14.

Determined not to let other men or women get away with sexual abuse, Rapp added: 'Part of what allowed the Harvey situation to occur was that there was this witting and unwitting conspiracy of silence.
