The swift unravelling of Kevin Spacey in less than a week

Cape Town – Kevin Spacey is seeking treatment after sexual assault allegations have come to light. 

The actor's representative released a statement saying, "Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment. No other information is available at this time," reports Deadline

This comes amidst new allegations of sexual harassment against the Oscar winner.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and filmmaker Tony Montana have also come forward with accounts that Spacey made sexual advances towards them.

These follow an allegation by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp who accused Spacey of sexual assault when he was 14 years old. (Read more here)

The fallout following the news has been swift with Netflix announcing the cancellation of House of Cards and the International Emmys revoking an honour award.

On Wednesday Spacey's online acting class was pulled from the MasterClass.

In a statement to Variety the service said it has closed enrollment of the course in light of recent events.
