I am just trying to make you comfortable.

One night in 1981, Brunton claimed, after the two men went out, Takei invited Brunton back to his Los Angeles condo for a nightcap.

George Takei has denied allegations that he groped a male model in the 1980s.

The denial stands in stark contrast to the detailed accusation made by Brunton, who described the harrowing experience of having his drink spiked and waking to find Takei removing his clothes.

Heather Unruh told reporters on Wednesday that Spacey stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old-son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at a restaurant in July 2016.

He went on: "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".

Since the allegations dropped in The Hollywood Reporter, Takei has seemingly remained offline and his rep said that she was unable to contact him. Brunton said they exchanged numbers and went out after the former model broke up with a boyfriend.

After " Ghoomar " broke records of gaining 10 million views in less than 24 hours of its release, all eyes are on its second song. Another handsome rendition from the musical kit of Sanjay Leela Bhansali is out to enthrall the audience.


Takei, 80, was an original Star Trek cast member, playing Lt Hikaru Sulu on television and in a series of films.

"But I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment", he added. "He goes, 'You need to relax".

Brunton told THR that he later woke up to Takei's unwanted advance. "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.

Scott R Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter he was 23 at the time, living in Hollywood and working as a waiter when he met Mr Takei at a bar.

At this point its unclear whether Takei will take further measures to clear his name or Brunton will talk more of his allegation.

What's even shocking is the fact that just days ago, Takei spoke up against Kevin Spacey, calling his sexual assault against Anthony Rapp, "abuse of power". "I am sure he'll disown all this, I don't know, maybe not".

"Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events almost 40 years ago", Takei went on. "But those that know me understand that non-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", Takei wrote.
