  • George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting Actor in 1981

"I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this'".

The Hollywood Reporter said Friday it spoke to four longtime friends of Brunton who said he had confided in them about Takei years ago.

Brunton says he told Takei, "No, I don't want to do this", and pushed him off. Brunton says he's seeking an apology from Takei.

"Those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that somebody would accuse me of this is quite personally painful", he wrote, adding that his husband Brad, with whom he has been for more than 30 years, stands firmly by his side.

Brunton told the USA publication that the alleged incident took place in 1981 when he was 23 and Takei was in his early 40s. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. Female politicians have said they were routinely harassed by male members of Congress and several top figures at Fox News have lost their jobs. "Brunton says that when he was waking up, "(Takei) had my trousers down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear". "I don't want to do this.'" After rejecting Takei's advances, Brunton left, having to wait in his auto until he felt well enough to leave. After Takei failed to persuade him to accept the attention, he said, he left the condo and drove home.

Brunton said he was angered when he read Takei's statement. "They came to my home".

"He was in a position of so much power over me, and I didn't feel I could tell anyone about it".

Kreisberg's shows run on the CW network. The claim is the latest in a string to hit Hollywood in the past five weeks since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, which was followed by other allegations of sexual misconduct against the likes of actors Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Piven, director Brett Ratner, and most recently, comedian/actor Louie C.K. and Arrowverse producer Andrew Kreisberg.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told The Boston Globe on Friday the meeting "will occur soon".

In New York, a subpoena in a Weinstein rape investigation requesting all medical treatment records from a therapist for "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de La Huerta is too broad and would be embarrassing and damaging to her, her lawyers said in court papers.

Takei, now 80, is an LGBTQ icon who has been outspoken in his condemnation of sexual assault. But the subpoena seeks "any and all medical treatment records" from the therapist, both handwritten and typed.

The allegations just keep coming.
