Kevin Spacey Ordered To Pay ‘House Of Cards’ Production Company $31 Million Due To Breach Of Contract
Kevin Spacey must compensate the production company behind House of Cards, Media Rights Capital, $31 million due to the losses caused by his dismissal.
The actor’s career was abruptly interrupted in 2017 following his multiple allegations of sexually predatory behavior. Anthony Rapp, a fellow actor who appeared in Rent on Broadway, claimed that Spacey made sexual advances to him when he was 14 years old. After this, numerous allegations came out against Spacey, causing many legal cases to be brought against the actor.
Following Rapp’s charges, however, Spacey claimed that he did not recall the incident ever happening. Still, he apologized for what he said would have been “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”
Media Rights Capital released a statement on Monday, saying that “the safety of our employees, sets and work environments is of paramount importance to MRC and why we set out to push for accountability.”
After Spacey had been fired in 2017, House of Cards had to rewrite the entire season, shortening the number of episodes from twelve to eight.
