Kevin Spacey‘s accuser texted his girlfriend details of the 2016 incident in which the actor allegedly sexually assaulted him — as it was happening, according to a blockbuster court filing made public on Thursday.
“He’s grabbed my d–k like 8 times,” the accuser wrote at one point during the exchange.
The then-18-year-old accuser was working as a busboy at the Club Car bar on Nantucket when court papers say he texted his girlfriend that Spacey was “hangin around me in the bar. He got my number and asked me to come out with him.”
“Sounds like he’s hitting on you…” the girlfriend wrote back, prompting the accuser to say, “I think he is.”
“He’s grabbing my leg and s–t,” he added.
The accuser also told his girlfriend that “I’m not gay,” then added, “But I think Spacey is.”
Later, the accuser said the two-time Oscar winner “pulled my zipper down” and “invited me to his house,” prompting the girlfriend to reply, “What the f–k is happening.”
“Jesus Christ he reached down my pants,” the accuser wrote back.
That message was followed by a string of 17 short texts that include “He’s buying me another drink,” “He’s gotten me so many,” “I’m drunk” and “He grabbed my d–k.”
There are also multiple messages that say “Help” and “Help me,” but others that suggest the accuser was wowed by Spacey’s celebrity and appear to reference an earlier request by the girlfriend to “Plz take a selfie with him at some point.”
“I’m gonna get the pic,” he wrote, adding, “I got the autographs and a hell of a stout,” followed by an apparent correction that says “Story.”
The court papers were first reported by the Boston Globe, which said they were filed in March by Spacey’s lawyers in a bid to defend him from charges of indecent assault and battery in the July 2016 incident.
In the filing, the defense notes that both the accuser and his girlfriend “appear to be amused” by what he told her, “and more importantly, [he] never uses any language to indicate the interaction was unwelcome.”
A spokeswoman for Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe declined to comment, telling the Globe: “The case will be tried in the courtroom, not the media.”
Spacey was charged in December, more than a year after a news conference at which former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh accused him of sexually assaulting her son.
The Post is withholding the name of Unruh’s son, which is included in the court papers, because he is an alleged sex crime victim.
