Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is understood to be being investigated by British police over a second alleged sexual assault.

A police spokeswoman said: "It is alleged a man assaulted another man (Victim 1) in 2008 in Lambeth".

"The allegations are of sexual assaults against a man, victim two, in 2005 in Lambeth".

It comes after The Old Vic revealed that 20 people have claimed they were victims of "inappropriate behaviour" by Kevin.

Spacey has been accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old boy in NY and of making advances on actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14 years old, 31 years ago.

Now, officials are looking into an incident that allegedly took place in 2005 in the same neighborhood - this time, at The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director from 2004 to 2015.

In contact with the French Agency, Scotland Yard confirmed that it had expanded the investigation to a male accused of sexual abuse without clarifying his identity, as no charges have been made at the moment against this person.

Netflix and Sony Pictures have cut ties with the star, firing him from House Of Cards and replacing him in upcoming film All the Money in the World.

Alleged victim, Daniel Beal said that Spacey showed him his penis in public when he was 19, before giving him his £5,000 watch to buy his silence.

Spacey, who announced he was gay shortly after Rapp came forward with his allegations, is now seeking treatment at The Meadows rehabilitation clinic in Arizona.

The incidents reported to the Lambeth theatre cover a period of 1995 to 2013 and have not been verified, The Old Vic said.
