2nd Kevin Spacey Accuser Found Dead After Apparent Suicide
The news comes after Spacey posts bizarre Christmas video on Twitter
Another one of the disgraced actor Kevin Spacey's accusers, Ari Behn, has been found dead after reportedly committing suicide on Christmas Day.
Behn, a Norwegian author, and ex-husband of Norwegian Princess Maertha, accused Spacey of groping his genitals in 2007 after a Nobel Peace Prize concert.
The news comes after Spacey posted a bizarre Christmas video on Twitter, reprising his role as Frank Underwood from “House of Cards."
Behn's manager, Geir Hakonsund, informed news outlets in Norway of Behn’s death in a statement.
“It’s with great sorrow in our hearts that we, those closest to Ari Behn, must report that he took his own life today," the announcement read.
“We ask for respect for our private lives in the time to come.”
Behn told radio station P4 about the incident, according to the BBC.
"We had a great talk. He sat right beside me. After five minutes he said, 'Hey, let's go out and have a cigarette.' Then he puts his hand under the table and grabs me by the balls," Behn said.
Behn is the second accuser of Spacey to die in recent months.
Another man who claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Hollywood actor was found dead in September, according to a notice filed in court by the actor's attorneys.
The individual, suing as a "John Doe," made the allegation of being forced to grab Spacey's genitals twice during a massage at a private residence in Malibu two years earlier.
A federal judge in California allowed the case to continue even though the actor objected that the plaintiff's identity was being shielded.
In July, a pre-trial hearing in the case against Spacey took an unforeseen turn when the accuser invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege to remain silent on the witness stand.
Heather Unruh accused Spacey, a former TV anchorwoman, for assaulting her son William Little in 2016.
She claimed the actor plied her then-18-year-old son with alcohol before molesting him at a Nantucket resort bar.
