Star Trek Star George Takei Accused of Sexual Assault

Not Released

The latest alleged sordid affair involves "Star Trek" and LGBT icon George Takei.

Brunton first met Takei at Greg's Blue Dot, a Los Angeles gay bar, where he was introduced by his boyfriend at the time, Jay Vanulk.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to four of Mr Brunton's long-time friends - Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward - who confirmed the former model had confided in them about his encounter. The year before, Takei, who was still in the closet, had considered a political life, campaigning for the California State Assembly in 1980, until his opponent said reruns of "Star Trek" amounted to free campaign ads and asked for "equal time".

Brunton said he told Takei he had to go home, though he was "still a little bit out of it".

Brunton alleged, however, that he was shocked how their relationship took a turn when they ended up in the actor's condo to have a drink after having dinner one night.

He continued: '[N] on-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful'. "He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve".

Brunton alleged Takei invited him back to his condo and made him a drink that caused him to pass out.

"The next thing I remember I was coming to and he 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", Brunton said.

He added: "I came to and said, "What are you doing?" He said Takei told him he was trying to make him comfortable. "This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it", Brunton said. "I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", Takei wrote on Twitter early Saturday. "I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked", Brunton said.

Scott Brunton told his story to THR, saying that it was "one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting freakish instances in their lives, this always comes up. 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".

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Brunton says he was 23 years old when he met 43-year-old Takei. "I thought I was a friend and here I am later, just another piece of meat". "It was just too uncomfortable", he said.

"George is traveling in Japan and Australia and not reachable for comment", Julia Buchwald told the Hollywood Reporter. However, he changed his mind after Takei publicly responded to the allegations against Kevin Spacey, in which actor Anthony Rapp accused the Hollywood star of sexual assault.

"When power is used in a nonconsensual situation, it is a wrong", Takei said.

The comment infuriated Brunton.

"I said, 'No. I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off, '" Brunton recalled. The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now.

Actor George Takei attends 2015 New York Film Critics Circle Awards at TAO Downtown on January 4, 2016 in New York City.
