This article shared 328 times since Thu Aug 4, 2022
On Aug. 4, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recana confirmed that embattled actor Kevin Spacey must pay House of Cards producer MRC nearly $31 million for alleged sexual misconduct behind the scenes of the Netflix show, according to Deadline.
Spacey, 63, played Frank Underwood on House of Cards and was cut from the Netflix series after allegations surfaced of him sexually preying on young men.
The accusationswhich included allegedly groping a production assistantcaused MRC to conduct an investigation and ultimately terminate his acting and producing contracts.
Recana confirmed an award handed down previously by an arbitrator in October 2020 in MRC's favor consisting of some $29.5 million in damages and the remainder in costs and fees.
While Spacey disagrees with the arbitrator's factual findings and maintains that he did not sexually harass anyone, he understands and accepts that the arbitrator's findings on that issue "are entitled to deference," Spacey's lawyers stated in their court papers.
