Where Is Kevin Spacey Now?
Kevin Spacey was ordered to pay nearly $31 million in restitution for alleged sexual misconduct on the set of Netflix's hit political drama House of Cards. His payment will go to the show's producer, MRC.
The actor was fired from the popular show following sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him.
According to Deadline, one of those allegations was the groping of a production assistant, which was discovered after an investigation. His participation in the show was terminated by MRC.
MRC sued him in October 2020 for lost revenue as a result of the actor's departure from the show. After hearing 8 days of live testimony and 20 hours of videotaped deposition testimony, an arbitrator ruled in favor of MRC in November 2021, awarding the company $29.5 million in damages.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recana upheld the award, stating that it was not even close. "Here, [Kevin] fails to demonstrate even that this is a close case," the judge wrote. MRC will also receive an additional $1.4 million in attorney fees and costs as part of the award.
There is also no social media activity as the last post on his Instagram was on DECEMBER 24, 2020, so it is unknown where the actor is right now.
