Netflix severs ties with Kevin Spacey amid sex assault allegations



Entertainment company Netflix has severed ties with Kevin Spacey, star of its House of Cards show, amid a number of sex assault allegations against him.

 
Netflix said it would hold talks with the producers to see if production, which was suspended this week, could resume without Spacey.


Netflix also said it would not release Spacey's film about writer Gore Vidal.


Meanwhile, police in the UK have opened an investigation into the American actor over an alleged sexual assault.


A British actor said he had woken up to find Spacey performing a sex act on him in 2008, the Sun newspaper reported. The man is said to have run from the property after Spacey allegedly said:

"Don't tell anyone about this."


Spacey said on Thursday he was seeking treatment after facing allegations of sexual misconduct from a string of men.
