LOS ANGELES - Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is seeking unspecified treatment, according to his representatives, following allegations of sexual misconduct that have forced a halt in production of his Netflix show"House of Cards" and a social media backlash.
"Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment," his representatives said in a statement late on Wednesday. No details on the nature of the treatment were provided to an email from Reuters seeking further comment.
On Thursday, CNN published a report in which eight current and former employees of "House of Cards," who were not identified, alleged sexual misconduct against Spacey.
"House of Cards" production company Media Rights Capital said in an emailed statement to Reuters on Thursday that it was"deeply troubled to learn about these new allegations."
