Ari Behn, the man who accused Kevin Spacey in 2017 of groping his crotch while at a Nobel Peace Prize concert, has reportedly died from suicide. The artist, author, and former member of the Norwegian royal family died at 47.
“It is with great sadness in our hearts that I on behalf of the very closest relatives of Ari Behn must announce that he took his own life today,” wrote Hakonsund.
This is the latest in a series of strange occurrences happening around Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault allegations. Just two days ago, Spacey released a short video to YouTube. In the video, he acted as his former House of Cards character Frank Underwood. In the video, he left the message that you should “kill them with kindness” if someone crosses you.
“The next time someone does something you don’t like, you can go on the attack – but you can also hold your fire, and do the unexpected,” Spacey said. “You can kill them with kindness.”
On top of that, Behn is not the only Spacey accuser to die this year. In fact, he’s the third. First, nursing assistant Linda Culkin was hit by a car in February. According to Radar Online, Culkin had threatened to kill the actor after one of her patients told her about allegedly being attacked by Spacey.
Then in September, an anonymous massage therapist who was suing Spacey for sexual assault abruptly died. No information about how the accuser died was shared, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Mr. Doe’s family must now open his estate at the same time as planning a funeral and processing their grief,” said the anonymous man’s attorney Genie Harrison. “Mr. Doe was a dignified, kind, middle-aged man traumatized by Spacey’s alleged sexually depraved attack. As a result of this case, other victims from around the world have reached out to our firm. Mr. Doe believed their harrowing stories, and in his final months he looked forward to standing up for all of them. His fight for justice is still very much alive.”
Keep in mind that these are just a few of many accusations placed against Spacey. From the now dismissed case of British TV anchor Heather Unruh’s son, to accusations from actor Anthony Rapp, accusations from filmmaker Tony Montana, accusations from Roberto Cavazos, accusations from crew members of House of Cards, and three cases currently under investigation by London’s Metropolitan Police. And there’s still more beyond that!
Things are not looking good for Kevin Spacey.
