Kevin Spacey 'groped' Norwegian royal during Nobel Peace Prize concert

Share

The Princess of Norway's former husband has claimed Spacey groped him when they met during a Nobel Peace Prize party ten years ago.

Ari Behn, who was married to Princess Martha Louise at the time, said he was seated with the actor at a Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2007 that Spacey co-hosted with Uma Thurman. After five minutes, he says "Hey, let's go out and have a cigarette" - and then he takes me under the table in the middle of my b***s.

Behn and Princess Märtha Louise - who is the daughter of King Harald V and fourth in line to the throne - married in May 2002 and have three children together.

What do you think of the shock allegations against Kevin Spacey?

Their wedding was of keen attention in Norway; later the two wrote a book about the nuptials.

Ari Behn, who divorced Princess Martha Louise of Norway previous year, admitted to being taken back by Spacey's behaviour.

In Amritsar, London Mayor says time for British to apologise for Jallianwala
The Mayor of London , Sadiq Khan, said, "The Jallianwala Bagh massacre is one of the most horrific events in Indian history". His grandparents migrated from India to Pakistan , and his parents moved to London in the 1906s, where he was born.

In fact, Spacey has said nearly nil in response to the accusations against him apart from after the first one: He apologized to actor Anthony Rapp who said in October that Spacey made sexual moves on him in 1986 in his NY residence when Rapp was 14. Last year, they made a decision to split but share custody over their three daughters. Spacey checked into an Arizona luxury rehab center for sex addiction therapy last month.

The others accused Spacey of nonconsensual touching, and they said that the actor was fond of making crude comments towards production staffers who were typically young and male.

But Spacey also said he couldn't remember the alleged encounter.

The investigation, which was carried out by an external law firm on behalf of The Old Vic, resulted in 20 personal allegations of "inappropriate behaviour" carried out by Spacey between 1995 and 2013.

His career has since taken a huge hit as a result of the allegations - he was sacked from his TV drama House of Cards and edited out of Ridley Scott's new movie All the Money in the World.
