George Takei 'bewildered' by former model's sexual assault claim

Not Released

Brunton alleged that in 1981 when he was 23 years old, he met Takei at a bar.

Add Richard Dreyfuss and Star Trek icon George Takei to the Hollywood's dirty laundry list. The two men knew each other socially. In a response on Twitter, Takei says he is "shocked and bewildered" at the accusation, and says the incident "simply did not occur". "And I thought, 'OK, that would be nice'".

Bruton said that he and Takei went back to the actor's condominium for a drink later that evening. Brunton recalled that Takei served it in a Star Trek glass, which he found "a bit cheesy". "This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it", Brunton said. "He is very sympathetic".

But by the second cocktail, Brunton said he felt like he was going to pass out. "I looked through the crowd and told my boyfriend, 'Look that's Sulu'".

Brunton said the actor guided him over to a yellow bean bag chair.

Bruton claimed that he "must have passed out" and woke up to Takei allegedly "groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off".

The clip starts off with Howard Stern talking to Takei about the Harvey Weinstein scandal and pointing out the irony that we have a president in the White House (aka Donald Trump) who "bragged about grabbing pussies". "Oh maybe... um... afraid and you're trying to persuade".

Brunton said he told Takei he had to go home, though he was "still a little bit out of it". "I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked". A culture of silence has reigned for decades, and it is only now that victims feel safe enough to join the Me Too movement and come forward.

THR spoke to four longtime friends of Brunton - Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward - who said that he had confided in them about the Takei encounter years ago.

Court papers say investigators are seeking privileged information and she should have a chance to review it before turning it over to prosecutors.

He said he exchanged numbers with the actor, and on occasion the pair called each other or ran into each other at different clubs. He was a waiter and aspiring actor and model at the time.

"Speaking of the incident he told THR, "'No.

"It was totally platonic", he said of that night.

Takei responds, "More than a gentle".

Brunton said he meant to confront the actor about the incident. The actress, who was 18 at that time, wrote that "I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself".

For years, Brunton - now an artist living in coastal OR with his partner of more than two decades - told his "Sulu sex" story at bars and parties.

In a statement, Dreyfuss - whose son Harry recently accused USA actor Kevin Spacey of groping him in 2008 - denied exposing himself to Teich. "And I said, 'No, I don't want this.' I pushed him off and said I was going". "That is my reason".
