George Takei denies sexually assaulting former male model

George Takei denies sexually assaulting former male model

Scott Brunton, a former male model, said Takei made him drunk and then groped him while he was unconscious in the actor's condo in 1981.

Mr Brunton said he grew dizzy and "must have passed out", awaking to his trousers around his ankles and Mr Takei groping him. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here, and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair.

There is no suggestion that the incident Brunton has alleged is the same one that Takei spoke of on the radio.

Takei just responded by saying, "The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur and I don't know why he has claimed them now". "I have wracked [sic] my brain to ask if I remember Mr Brunton, and I can not say I do".

Louis C.K. was late last week accused of masturbating in front of 5 women and sexual misconduct.

Kevin Spacey: Who has accused him so far?

Most such revelations have followed the news last month that the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein serially harassed and coerced women into sexual contact for years, and hired teams of professionals to silence or denigrate victims. The claims also spurred a #metoo hashtag campaign on social media for those speaking out against similar experiences, particularly in the workplace.

Brunton said that the only thing he wanted from Takei was an apology, but expects him to "disown all this".

When Scott broke up with his boyfriend, George - now 80 - called him and invited him to dinner and a theatre show, claims Brunton. "I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", he tweeted on Saturday.

Mr Takei, a staunch Trump opponent, initially was silent, then said "uh oh" and laughed.

Brunton has alleged the star, who is famous for his role as Hikaru Sulo in the Star Trek TV series and Nakamura in "Heroes", groped him at a Los Angeles bar when he was 23 and had just moved to Hollywood.

Takei has strenuously denied all allegations, stating that he takes the claims "very seriously".

"Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events almost 40 years ago". Brunton was in a relationship at the time, but he and Takei connected after Brunton's hard breakup. He is a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign and has become a leading gay celebrity, taking part in pride parades across the US.

'Oh maybe... um... afraid and you're trying to persuade...' he added.
