Kevin Spacey accused of groping King of Norway’s son-in-law

Ari Behn was married to King Harald's daughter Märtha Louise

Actor Kevin Spacey has been accused of groping the former son-in-law of the King Of Norway.

Ari Behn, who was married to King Harald’s daughter Märtha Louise from 2002 – 2016, claims that Spacey groped him after attending a Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2007.

Behn told Norwegian radio station P4 that Spacey “put his hand under the table and grabbed me by the balls”, saying of the incident: “I am a generous person, but this was a bit more than I had in mind”.


He said that the pair had a “great talk” before going outside for a cigarette when the alleged incident occurred. According to Behn, he dodged Spacey’s advances by telling him: “Er, maybe later”.

“My hair was dark at the time, I was 10 years younger and right up his alley,” Behn said.

Spacey hasn’t responded directly to Behn’s allegations, but has denied other accusations of misconduct. The actor also previously issued a statement, saying that he was “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment”.

Following the allegations, Spacey has been written out of Netflix’s House Of Cards and replaced by Christopher Plummer in new Ridley Scott film All the Money in the World.
