George Takei says events in sexual assault allegation 'simply did not occur'

Goddard's spokesperson has dismissed the allegation.

Page, who was 18 at that time, wrote that "I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself".

"This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it", he said.

Dreyfuss' son, actor Harry Dreyfuss, said Kevin Spacey groped him when he was 18, prompting his father to post on Twitter that he was "so incredibly proud" of his son.

Takei added: "Brad, who is 100% beside me on this, as my life partner of more than 30 years and now my husband, stands fully by my side".

Kreisberg told Variety, "I have made comments on women's appearances and clothes in my capacity as an executive producer, but they were not sexualized. It just seemed so hypocritical". The Manhattan district attorney's office has subpoenaed her therapist, who told Vanity Fair she recalled de la Huerta telling her about the sexual assaults. Female politicians have said they were routinely harassed by male members of Congress and several top figures at Fox News have lost their jobs. One night, after going to dinner and the theater, the pair reportedly stopped by Takei's apartment for a drink, where Brunton says he lost consciousness. Brunton claimed he remembered waking up to find Takei on top of him, pulling his trousers down and trying to take off his underwear.

In a Facebook post, Takei said that the events which Brunton describes "simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now". "I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'Okay, fine.'" Brunton said he put his trousers back on and left, even after Takei warned him he was "in no condition to drive". "I always wanted to ask him - I just felt really betrayed", says Brunton.

Takei took to Twitter on November 11, 2017, to deny the allegations saying he was "shocked and bewildered" at the claims. The alleged event "simply did not occur", Takei said.

According to Teich's account, she was was in her mid-20s, working as a junior writer on a project that Dreyfuss was producing called "Funny, You Don't Look 200: A Constitutional Vaudeville" when the harassment started.

In 1987, Teich said, she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her. Dreyfuss agent Barry McPherson on Saturday said his client denies ever exposing himself to Teich. "I don't want to do this'".

ABC News in the USA reported that Dreyfuss "emphatically denied" exposing himself to Teich, but that he admitted regret over the way he acted. "I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this'". He told Vulture that he flirted with Teich but is now "horrified and bewildered to discover that it wasn't consensual". "I thought I was a friend and here I am later, just another piece of meat".
