Another man says Kevin Spacey made inappropriate sexual advances towards him, amid recent accusations that the House of Cards star tried to have sexual contact with actor Anthony Rapp when he was a teen.
RadarOnline reports that filmmaker Tony Montana claimed that Spacey groped him in at a Los Angeles bar, the Coronet, in 2003. Montana said he was at the bar on the same night Spacey and friends walked in, and as Montana walked up to bar area to get a drink, Spacey grabbed his groin.
“I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me. He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package.”
Montana said Spacey was clearly drunk when the incident happened. The actor reportedly “claimed ownership” of Montana after allegedly grabbing him.

“This designates ownership,” Spacey said, according to Montana.
Montana said the unwanted gesture made him feel uncomfortable, and he immediately moved Spacey’s hand away. Yet, Spacey reportedly didn’t take the hint. Montana said the actor followed him to the restroom when he walked away.
“I put my hand down and turned his thumb back to get his hand off it. I paid for my drink and got away from him….I backed him out the door and I pushed him. One of his friends was in line and I said, ‘It’s time to take your boy home.’ They all ended up leaving.”
Montana said the incident left him feeling emasculated and bothered him to the point that he sought out therapy. He indicated the incident left him with PTSD for around six months and had only shared the private details of what happened to him with therapists until now, after he found the courage to come forward after Rapp publicly accused Spacey.
“I had PTSD for six months after. It was an emasculating thing for someone to do to me. Whenever I went to the bar, I would see if he was there or have my back against the wall.”
While Rapp spoke to BuzzFeed about the incident, Montana chose RadarOnline to tell his story to.
“It still feels awkward. I still feel what I felt then. I put it into the back of my mind until I saw him [Rapp] come forward. When you’re trying to accomplish something in the industry, you have things that inspire you, that can help move you forward. You have setbacks and haunted experiences. No matter what happens, you have to keep going.”
Although Spacey acknowledged Rapp’s allegations and issued an apology via Twitter, he’s remained mum regarding Montana’s claims.
