Royals claims he was sexually harassed by Kevin Spacey

08 December 2017

Ari Behn is the former husband of Princess Martha Louise of Norway, who is fourth in line to the Norwegian throne.

"We had a nice conversation, he was sat next to me", Behn, 46, told the radio station according to stories in The Daily Mail and the Telegraph in London. "I got more than I bargained for", he is reported as saying in this morning's edition of The Sun newspaper.

"Kevin Spacey grabbed my crown jewels", declared the ever-cheeky Daily Mail's headline on the story.

The Danish author and playwright said he looked like Spacey's "type" at the time of the incident.

The Royal Court announced past year that Behn, a Danish author and playwright, will be divorcing his wife, the only daughter of King Harald V and fourth in line to the throne.

An Ankara court ruled on Thursday to keep pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party's co-chair (HDP) Selahattin Demirtaş behind bars. HDP leader has been under arrest along with other party lawmakers on terrorism charges since Nov 2016.

In 2016, the Norwegian royal court announced that Behn and the princess were to going to divorce, the first in the modern history of the Norwegian royal family.

More than a dozen men have accused Spacey of sexual assault in the wake of an October expose by Buzzfeed which saw actor Anthony Rapp accuse Spacey of forcing himself on him when he was only 14 years old. But Spacey also said he couldn't remember the alleged encounter. "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".

Spacey is reportedly now seeking "evaluation and treatment".

Spacey is one of the biggest names to lose work and standing in Hollywood since sexual harassment and abuse allegations against film mogul Harvey Weinstein emerged earlier this year.
