Kevin Spacey is taking some time to get “evaluation and treatment” following several sexual harassment allegations against him, including a pedophilia accusation.

“Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” a representative for the 58-year-old “House of Cards” star said in a statement to Variety late Wednesday(RELATED: ‘The View’ Blasts Kevin Spacey For Tying Homosexuality To Pedophilia)

“No other information is available at this time,” he added and he declined to share where and when the treatment will be done.

The comment comes just days after “Star Trek” actor Anthony Rapp said in a BuzzFeed News piece that the actor made a sexual advance towards him when he was 14 years old at a party. The now 46-year-old actor said the two met when they both worked on Broadway together in 1986.  At some point during the party, the “American Beauty” star, then 26, allegedly “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.”

On Monday, Spacey responded to the accusation and said while he didn’t recall the encounter, if he acted the way Rapp said he owes him the “sincerest apology.” He then came out as a “gay man.”

Two other men then came forward, filmmaker Tony Montana and Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, both who accused Spacey of sexual misconduct.

Then it was Daniel Beal who broke his silence and claimed that the “American Beauty” star approached him outside a London Hotel. Beal–then 19 years old– was working in the bar when Spacey allegedly followed him outside during a cigarette break. The barman claimed he sat next to him on the bench where he allegedly exposed his penis to him and tried to pull Beal’s hand towards him. When Beal went back to the bar he said that Spacey followed him and the actor insisted he take his Swiss watch worth £5,000. He now believes it was in an attempt to keep him hush about what happened.
