George Takei Responds to Sexual Assault Allegation

Not Released

Model Scott R. Brunton, who was a 23-year-old waiter and aspiring actor at the time, said the incident happened in the early 1980s when the pair went back to George's condo for a drink.

According to Bunton, the pair met at a bar and exchanged numbers. "He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve".

Later on, the pair then went back to George's home for a drink. So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out.

Mr Brunton said he grew dizzy and "must have passed out", awaking to his trousers around his ankles and Mr Takei groping him.

He went on: "The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my trousers down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear". "He goes, 'You need to relax".

'Oh maybe... um... afraid and you're trying to persuade...' he added. "I walked out and went to my vehicle until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that", Scott claimed. "I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off, and he said, 'OK, fine, '" the former model and actor said.

The Star Trek actor and gay rights activist George Takei responded on Saturday to an accusation that he sexually assaulted a young actor almost 40 years ago.

There also is a chance of showers after 11 a.m., but forecasters believe not more than one-tenth of an inch is expected to fall. Things will warm up slightly for this weekend's sunny Sunday, with highs reaching into the mid- to upper-40s.

Spacey apologised, saying he didn't remember the incident, while also coming out as gay in the same statement. "It's my word against his", he told The Hollywood Reporter.

"When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong", Takei said. In the THR interview, Bruton says he was prompted to come forward with his story about Takei after becoming infuriated with the actor speaking out against Spacey's response to the sexual misconduct claim made by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp.

One night after a brutal breakup with the man he was dating, Brunton reached out to Takei to help him through the heartache.

"Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight - that is a deflection".

Since the allegations dropped in The Hollywood Reporter, Takei has seemingly remained offline and his rep said that she was unable to contact him.

The Hollywood Reporter said on Friday it spoke to four longtime friends of Mr Brunton who said he had confided in them about Mr Takei years ago.
