Richard Dreyfuss has praised his son, Harry, for coming forward about allegedly being groped by Kevin Spacey.

In a piece published by BuzzFeed over the weekend, Harry claimed Spacey groped him at his London apartment in 2008, at the age of 18. His father - who was completely unaware of what allegedly happened - was also in the room.

“I love my son @harrydreyfuss more than I could explain with all the words in the world,” he wrote. “And I am so incredibly proud of him right now.”

Last month, Broadway actor Anthony Rapp became the first person to accuse Kevin of sexual harassment and in the time since, a number of other people have come forward.

On Friday (3 November), the Metropolitan Police confirmed that they are investigating one allegation of sexual assault, concerning an incident that allegedly took place in 2008.

According to The Sun, the alleged victim reported visiting Spacey at home, falling asleep and waking up to find Spacey performing a sex act on him.

A Met spokesman said: “On Wednesday, 1 November, City of London Police referred an allegation of sexual assault to the Metropolitan Police Service.

“It is alleged a man assaulted another man in 2008 in Lambeth. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating.”
