Creepy George Takei Interview Takes on New Meaning Following Sexual Assault Allegation

Adjust Comment Print

On November 10, a man named Scott R. Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter that Takei groped him while he was unconscious in 1981.

Star Trek actor George Takei is denying allegations that he sexually assaulted a former model and actor in his Los Angeles home back in the 1980s.

"More than gentle", Takei answers, laughing.

Brunton then claims the actor groped him.

"Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events almost 40 years ago".

Brunton, now 60, told CNN on Saturday that the alleged assault occurred when he was 23 and Takei was in his 40s.


In Anthony Edwards' heartbreaking post, the actor recalls that he was 12 when he met Goddard and says that the film, television and theater producer quickly became a mentor.

Kreisberg told Variety, "I have made comments on women's appearances and clothes in my capacity as an executive producer, but they were not sexualized".

The trio exchanged numbers and occasionally hung out, Brunton said.

Takei has not yet responded to fans linking Brunton's allegations to his comments on Howard Stern's show.

"It was totally platonic", he said of that night. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. He was so not my type.

Heather Unruh told reporters 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. Takei said, "It was either in my home".


And he feels Takei owes him an apology, although the actor's now playing the role of victim. After a second drink Brunton claims he began feeling dizzy and after sitting down, passed out.

Brunton said the actor guided him over to a yellow bean bag chair. He said he told multiple friends about the incident, thinking the media wouldn't believe his story, but thinks things have changed recently. After Brunton passed out, he says, he came to, only to find "my trousers down around my ankles and [that Takei] was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off".

"I thought I was going to pass out". What are you saying, George? I'm just trying to make you comfortable. Brunton says he told Takei "No, I don't want to do this", and pushed him off, to which Takei responded, "OK, fine".

Brunton said he left the condo and sat in his auto in shock. Edwards says Goddard preyed upon him because he was vulnerable and that he molested him for years and raped his best friend. He said he wanted to confront Takei about the alleged assault, but there were too many people there. Brunton alleges that when he woke up, his trousers were down and Takei was groping his crotch. Rapp was 14 at the time and Spacey was 26. "I am sure he'll disown all this, I don't know, maybe not".

The former model said he was amused that Takei doesn't remember him after their numerous encounters.

"We have the drink and he asks if I would like another". Brunton asked. "I understand why he is not owning up to it". The actress, who was 18 at that time, wrote that "I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself". The allegations appeared to be more hard to accept than allegations against other favorite entertainment icons, notably Louis C.K.
