British prosecutors have charged embattled actor Kevin Spacey with four counts of sexual assault against three men in the UK

The Crown Prosecution Service said on Thursday the charges against the award-winning actor “follow a review of evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police”. Spacey, 62, was also charged with “causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without their consent”, the agency said.

Rosemary Ainslie, head of the service’s Special Crimes Division, said the charges followed a review of evidence gathered by London’s Metropolitan Police.

Spacey was questioned by British police in 2019 over claims by several men that he assaulted them.

The former ‘House of Cards’ star ran London’s Old Vic Theater between 2004 and 2015.

Spacey won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 1995 film “The Usual Suspects” and the Academy Award for Lead Actor for the 1999 film “American Beauty.”

His famous career came to an abrupt halt in 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused the star of assaulting him at a party in the 1980s when Rapp was a teenager.

Spacey denies the allegations and is currently trying to have a sex abuse lawsuit dismissed from Rapp in New York.
