Kevin Spacey Hired Psychologist To Examine Accuser Anthony Rapp

Kevin Spacey hired a professional psychologist to examine his sexual assault accuser, Anthony Rapp, who claims the 49-year-old suffers "narcissistic personality traits" and has an "excessive need for admiration."

In legal documents obtained by Radar, the expert outlines all the reasons they believe Rapp "generated and perpetuated a false memory" about the alleged incident with Spacey.

"Diagnostically, Mr. Rapp displays narcissistic personality traits, in that he has an excessive need for admiration, has a grandiose sense of self-importance, and believes that he is special (i.e. saved his family’s life on several occasions)," the psychologist alleges

Claiming Rapp perpetuated his allegations against Spacey because he was "apparently moved by the #MeToo movement and wanted very much to be a part of it," the expert adds, "Openly disclosing this alleged incident that occurred with Mr. Spacey became an effective vehicle to move the movement’s spotlight onto himself

The medical expert says Rapp has "enjoyed the attention, praise and sympathy his allegations have given him."

Adding that Rapp had "resentment towards closeted gay actors," the expert claims, "Mr. Spacey was just such an actor and his tremendous success made him a focus of Mr. Rapp’s resentment

Upon examining Spacey's accuser, the psychologist concludes, "Obviously, as with any civil lawsuit involving a claim of psychological damage, one cannot ignore the lure of a substantial financial settlement as a motivating factor for making such a claim either. In other words, in my psychiatric opinion, there are both external (financial reward) and internal (emotional gratification and public support) reasons for advancing Mr. Rapp’s claim against Mr. Spacey."

As Radar reported, Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advance on him in 1986 when he was just 14 years old

This is 100% true. When Rapp told the story years earlier, it was under the guise of outing the “cowards” who were closeted. It wasn’t “ I’m a sex abuse victim that needs millions of dollars for my ptsd”

Prompted by friends and family, Rapp came forward (again) in 2017 after the Weinstein expose. His allegation was that Spacey (then 26) took him (then 14) back to Spacey's home for party, into his bedroom, forcibly pinning him down on his bed after everyone had left. In New York, the age of consent is 17. Anyone younger than that is legally incapable of giving consent (no matter how some of you NAMBLA victim-shaming cunts want to spin it). Spacey's response was that he didn't recall "the encounter," but was "beyond horrified" to hear Rapp share this. He offered his "sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour."

Rapp had met with a lawyer about the attack years ago, but was told the case wasn't worth pursuing at that time. He told his story before to The Advocate way back in 2001 (which has remained CONSISTENT), but the publication chose to redact Spacey's name for legal reasons (even though it was the interviewer who brought up Spacey's name). "It’s hard for me to evaluate his acting because I’m so angry at him. I met him when I was 14 because we were both in plays and he invited me to a party at his house. I was bored, so I was in his bedroom watching TV and didn’t know everybody had left, and he came to the bedroom and he picked me up and lay down on top of me ... I squirmed away and went into the bathroom. I came out and I excused myself, and he’s like “You sure you want to go?” I always wonder if he remembers it, because he was pretty drunk. And he’s had so many."

Since the revelation, twenty people have come forward alleging sexual assault or misconduct against Spacey. One of them, Ari Behn, who alleged Spacey sexually assaulted him at at Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2007, committed suicide one day after Spacey released his "Kill Them with Kindness" video on YouTube in 2019.. Another accuser, an anonymous massage parlour therapist, who also alleged sexual assault, died three months before.

Rapp has been harassed and criticised for coming forward. He filed the lawsuit last year which included another man alleging a similar attack when he was 14 back in 1983 (and Spacey 24), who has since been dismissed due his refusal to expose his identity.

I remember the story Rapp told and the Advocate article is different in some details.

There is nothing "disgusting" about defending your case. Expert witnesses are essential in cases like this. Why wouldn't he get to use a psychologist to explore the accusations and accuser when the accuser is claiming psychological damage. Rapp will have his own experts. Especially in cases which are about inflammatory subject and it is one person's word against the other such as this it. When a case is brought many years later - here DECADES later - it is extremely hard, often impossible, to locate witnesses and other evidence that can be used to impeach your accuser.

It is really outrageous that they are allowing these cases so long after the alleged incident. Rapp has been an adult for decades and could have acted sooner. Lifting the statutes of limitation for sex cases in either civil or criminal cases is an injustice.

by Anonymousreply 37October 5, 2021 2:54 AM

While it's probably true both Spacey and Rapp are awful people, the bottom line is Spacey made aggressive sexual advances to a fucking child.

1986. 14-year-old Anthony Rapp (pictured below). KS grabbed and carried him to his bed, forcing him down.

1988. 16-year-old Connecticut theatre usher. KS invited him and his friend over to watch a movie, and then played pornography.

Early 2000s. 20-something British journo. KS sexually assaulted him in public during an interview.

2003. 30-something man in Los Angeles. KS sexually assaulted him in public.

2007. 20-year-old Irish bartender in London. KS sexually assaulted him at one of his parties.

In R49, there are two 14-year-olds, one 16-year-old, and one 17-year-old (as well as his possibly similarly-aged friend). Three of them were minors sexually at the time. The other two he plied with alcohol, at least one of whom was a minor in respect to alcohol.

In regards to the OP (if he's isn't the same person as R68), in the Fran Drescher/Matthew Modine thread, he called Rapp a “pompous[,] self[-]righteous bully," "a shit[-]head liar" and "a teenage whore." He wrote, "He went a lot further with grown men than Kevin Spacey got with his fugly ginger ass."

OP also wrote in another thread, "I’m disgusted that straight men like Jared Leto and James Franco were let off so easily while the gay guy (Kevin spacey) gets labeled a pedophile and loses everything for an allegation from nearly 40 years ago.”

As well as, "Kevin Spacey had over 30 people who were accusing him and 99.9[%] of them were over the age of 18 and went up to age 65." I'm not going to judge Rapp for the $40M amount, when Spacey clearly isn't repentant for his actions in regards to any of the allegations against him. When you look at R49, there are obvious patterns. In his 20s, he went after teenagers. In his 30s+, he went after guys in their 20s and 30s. The majority of the accusers all tell a similar story ("he grabbed my genitals"). Some of them allege "lesser" offenses. They give dates, places. The source other names who were within the vicinity (i.e. Richard Dreyfus' son).

OP is hell-bent on not actually learning the facts of the case, and carries water for Spacey for some inexplicable reason. It's obvious that he's taking this situation way too personally. Since this thread is about psychoanalysing others, I'm going to psychoanalyse OP: he is probably an abuse survivor, but doesn't yet recognise the actions against him as abuse and hasn't yet begun to process the trauma. He perhaps had a relationship with a much older man when he was a teenager and doesn't want to view himself as exploited. Or perhaps he was molested at an even younger age. I hope for his sake, he one day deals with the trauma.

Are you on the right thread, r79?

by Anonymousreply 83October 5, 2021 5:18 AM

R78, I'm not alleging conspiracy theories, so your point about the age of the massage therapist is irrelevant. The VAST majority of accusers of any degree of assault or inappropriate behaviour are teenagers and twentysomethings (about 80%).

The majority of that teenage/twentysomething group who are alleging sexual assault or actions that are illegal is over 50% (grabbing their genitals or forcing their hand on KS's genitals; in Rapp's case, holding down a 14-year-old in your bed for sexual purposes is assault; in the other 14-year-old's case, it was assault as he described the relationship as "sexual" in nature; in the 16-year-old's case, it's illegal to share pornography with a minor). That is what was included at R49. The 99% figure that is being tossed around is bunk.

As it has been pointed out, WHEN these crimes took place is irrelevant, as processing trauma is individualised and we used to live in a time where we were conditioned to believe that certain sexual assaults and actions towards minors were not crimes, when, in fact, they were. And just because someone initially played down an assault 30 years ago doesn't mean it wasn't assault and they understood what was happening at the time. I think there are multiple people in this thread who have been sexually abused and haven't yet dealt with it, which shades their comments (like R79; I mean WTF?).

Thanks R80. I didn't add the Nantucket teenager, because I wasn't really sure to include it or not.

But I'm definitely not paid to be here, and Spacey and Rapp both completely fucking suck. Rapp is a much worse actor and Spacey is a much bigger sociopath. But they both suck.

As a psychology professional, isn't it borderline illegal to "diagnose" someone you've never met? Spacey can hire as many people as he wants, everyone knows what a creep he is, the only ones trying to demonize Rapp are perverts themselves. People have had Spacey's number for years

Kevin Spacey made his film debut in Mike Nichols' Heartburn. The Working Girl director also cast him in his second role. In a fortuitous turn, Spacey plays a slimy pervert who subjects Tess McGill to his lewd behaviour during a business engagement, including offering her drugs, showing her pornography, and accosting her. I guess he wasn't acting. It's a Spacey performance that fits in with who he really is.

The word is horrendously overused these days, but this legitimately IS gaslighting: Spacey is trying to get himself off the hook by making it look like Rapp is psychologically defective. Good luck in doing that to all the dozens of others that have come forward, Kev.

And yet you do blame the victim.

Some of you don't seem to get it. I don't care what kind of a person Anthony Rapp is. He could be the biggest piece of shit on the planet, but he was a young teenager when Spacey made sexual advances on him. I don't care if Rapp took off all his clothes, jumped into Spacey's bed, and presented hole. You don't have sex with 14 year old kids! The adult is supposed to know better and be the responsible one. Clearly Kevin Spacey never gave a shit about those kind or moral or legal boundaries.

Spacey was a defenseless child, actually getting ass raped by his father-- according to Spacey's brother-- but Rapp was a precocious theater kid, who I believe could have skipped out of there if he was uncomfortable-- which he did.

Now, I'm not defending Spacey, but when you look at the two scenarios, it's hard to feel sympathy for Rapp and his alleged trauma, considering what could have happened, had he been three or four years younger.

by Anonymousreply 115October 7, 2021 3:01 PM

WTF happened to you as a child, R113, that you're jumping out of your skin over this.

Spacey is a drunk. Drunks do stupid shit because the alcohol removes inhibitions.

Rapp is a hot mess with parents who neglected him terribly. If not, he would not be in Kevin Spacey's apartment at 2 a.m. Rapp has discussed how freely he traveled about on his own in midtown Manhattan at the age of 14, well into the night after working all evening. If may have been the wrong sort of attention, but Spacey was paying attention to a needy kid whose parents were totally failing their obligations to their son.

Go ahead and vilify Spacey. He earned it. But what happened was far more complex, and pathetic, than the simplistic scenario you suggest. And why do you do that? The whole thing is tragic, but it's not fair or reasonable or helpful to lay it all at Spacey's feet. If Rapp's parents had not be total failures, Spacey would not have had the kid in his apartment in the first place. There is lots of failure here, on the part of everyone involved. They all could have done better.

by Anonymousreply 116October 7, 2021 3:03 PM

R116, You word it as of Spacey was grooming the kid. Rapp doesn’t allege having any contact with Spacey before or after this incident. He was there as part of a large gathering of Broadway actors.

Rapp was somewhere he should not have been and Spacey was wasted.

Kevin Spacey did absolutely nothing illegal. He's talented, and the man's been railroaded. I suspect most of the pieces of shit here who condemn him are QAnon/Pizzagate scum. As soon as you open your mouth to defend him, you get a chorus of accusations that you are posing as several different posters. Nope. There are more than one of us with common sense who know a homophobic witch hunt when we see it.

It is both fair and reasonable because he was the adult in the situation, and morally he should have been compelled to act like an adult and do the right thing, and legally he very much knew that what he was doing was breaking the law.

"But this 14-year-old lead me on" is neither a moral nor a legal excuse.

Spacey is sexually voracious, and is addicted to the feeling of making a conquest. Having a 14 year old kid in his bedroom was like manna from the heavens. How could Spacey have given up such an opportunity? He wouldn't have made the advance on Rapp if he didn't think the kid was down for it.

Rapp always forgets to mention that the editor in chief at the Advocate was a good friend of his at the time who granted his request to omit Spacey's name when the interview ran to protect Anthony's career such as it was.

Spacey's victims after that time until Rapp spoke up (and had a show to promote) don't seem to have mattered quite so much to Rapp back then as they do now that he is trying to sue..

From above article:

[quote] The BBC reported that while working on the 1995 film Albino Alligator, which marked Spacey’s film debut, the actor allegedly harassed an anonymous crew member who was 22 years old at the time. According to the anonymous crew member, Spacey initially seemed friendly and took an interest in his career, but progressed to “creepy” behavior such as giving him an unwanted massage.

Faye Dunaway appeared in that movie. She’s also in Spacey’s comeback film.
