Kevin Spacey’s been out in these streets, allegedly groping and making vile, disgusting, unwanted advances toward men (and boys) for so damn long, that he finally caught a break when one of his accusers died. Outliving your victims is a strategy reserved solely for top tier predators who put in the work, year in, year out. You’ve got to hand to to Kevin; when he commits to his craft, he commits wholeheartedly. Page Six reports that the massage therapist who was suing Kevin for sexual assault, passed away, possibly putting an end to any further legal action. Looks like Kev’s gonna be able to walk this suit off like he did that limp The Usual Suspects.
According to Page Six:
Lawyers for Spacey filed a “notice of statement noting plaintiff’s death” in the federal case on Tuesday. They said they were informed on Sept. 11 that the masseur had “recently passed.”
“No further information or details have been given to Mr. Fowler’s counsel, but Plaintiff’s counsel stated they intended to notify the Court with additional information at an appropriate time in the future,” the filing said, referring to Spacey by his real name, Kevin Fowler.
Kevin’s accuser was listed as John Doe in court records, and we don’t know the cause of death. We do know that, per Page Six, he had worked as a massage therapist for 35 years at the time of the alleged assault. So it sounds like he wasn’t a very young man. It was also mentioned in his suit that he had a son. It’s very sad that he died before receiving the justice he likely deserved.
In case you’ve also been popping black market Forgetittals like candy since the beginning of the Me Too era, Kevin was accused of refusing to lay face-down, and then pretending to have “some pain or discomfort in his groin area” while receiving a massage in his Malibu home. He then allegedly grabbed his alleged victim’s hands and tried to place them on his junk, telling the massage therapist “[you have] beautiful eyes.” Kevin allegedly tried to kiss the massage therapist, and blocked the door “with his naked body” when his victim tried to leave. Then like a quivery, desperate sack of shit (presumably), asked if he could suck his victim’s dick. Now here’s 12 Forgetittalls. Don’t take these with water, I suggest a whiskey chaser.
Page Six says there’s a chance that John Doe’s family will continue to pursue the suit despite his passing. However, given that the other suit against Kevin was dismissed “Due to the unavailability of the complaining witness”, I assume the chances of his being successfully prosecuted for this particular crime are slim. We’ll just have to hope that the plethora of additional investigations and accusations against Kevin will, at the very least, keep him from campaigning to reprise his role in the inevitable remake of The Usual Suspects. Unless he wants to do it for the prison talent show, in which case, I would absolutely watch that on YouTube.
