"I can not tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these hard times", he said.

Brunton described how Takei had befriended him beforehand, and took advantage of him after he had broken off a relationship with his boyfriend.

When even George Takei is accused of sexual assault, one has to wonder what the world is coming to? They ended up at Takei's condo afterwards for a drink, where Brunton said he started feeling disoriented after the second drink and passed out. "He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve".

Brunton alleged when he awoke, 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".

Talking to a journalist, Bunton said that he befriended Takei after stumbling on him on several occasions at parties and bars.

Moving forward, Brunton tells THR of Takei, "I don't want anything from him but an apology".

Brunton said he then left the apartment, despite Takei - who is best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the Star Trek TV series - reportedly telling him "to relax" and "get comfortable".

United Kingdom industrial output jumps in September
Primary goods output rose 6.6 percent, capital goods production grew 7.4 percent and intermediate goods logged 1.9 percent gain. Construction fell for a second straight quarter, with the 0.9 percent decline exceeding the 0.7 percent initially estimated.


Takei is responding to allegations made by Scott B. Brunton, who says 36 years ago he went to dinner and the theatre with Takei. "I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", he tweeted on Saturday.

Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter that when he was 23, he met Takei, who was in his 40s at the time, at a local bar. "I walked out and went to my vehicle until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that".

Takei has strenuously denied all allegations, stating that he takes the claims "very seriously".

House of Cards star Kevin Spacey was also accused of sexually advancing a young man from years ago.

Takei said Saturday on Twitter that events described in an interview with Scott R. Brunton "simply did not occur". Just a few days ago, the actor spoke out against Kevin Spacey calling his alleged sexual abuse of Anthony Rapp, "an abuse of power".

A spokesman for Takei told the outlet that the actor was not in the USA and could not be reached for comment. You've never held a job over someone if they didn't touch your cock...' replied Stern and Takei was quick to add that it was never an incident in work, adding: 'No, I never did that'.
