Thomas Middleditch Accused Of Sexual Misconduct At Hollywood Club
Actor Thomas Middleditch has been accused of sexual misconduct at a now-closed nightclub in Los Angeles in 2019.
On Sunday, The Los Angeles Times reported about the Hollywood club, Cloak & Dagger, in which 10 women — including four former staffers-accused owners Adam Bravin and Micheal Patterson of turning a blind eye to sexual misconduct among members of the club.
Among the accusations were ones leveled against HBO’s Silicon Valley’s Middleditch.
On the night of October 22, 2019, Hannah Harding said that Middleditch approached her on the dance floor and made what the Times describes as “lewd sexual overtures” toward Harding and her girlfriend. After turning the actor down, she said that he “kept pursuing her, groping her in front of her friends and several employees, including the club’s operations manager, Kate Morgan.”
Harding also has direct messages from Middleditch on Instagram that said, “I had no idea my actions were that weird for you… I am so ashamed I made you uncomfortable.”
Morgan told the Times that she asked her bosses, Bravin and Patterson, to ban him from the club but they “dismissed it.”
Harding also alleged that she saw Middleditch grope another woman at the club after she complained. Bravin reached out to her a week ago stating that she was wrong about her recollections.
“Adam called me ‘to make sure and get a second opinion on him’ because they didn’t trust my story in the first place. They cared about more famous people at their club that women’s safety,” Harding said.
“As far as I am aware, they reported every incident to us and to my knowledge, we dealt with every single possible issue brought to our attention,” Patterson said in a statement. “Our goal from day one was to create the safest space possible,” Bravin added.
It was announced that the club was closing in January.
Middleditch was married to costume designer Mollie Gates at the time of the alleged incident, but she filed for divorce from the actor last year.
