George Takei Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Unconscious Male Model
by Brandon Voss 15h ago A former actor and model has accused George Takei, 80, of sexual assault, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Scott R. Brunton claims that the gay actor and activist, who is best known for playing Sulu in the original Star Trek TV series, took advantage of him in 1981. Brunton was 23 years old at the time of the alleged incident, and Takei would have been 43 or 44. “This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it,” Brunton tells THR. “It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting bizarre instances in their lives, this always comes up. I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it.” The alleged incident occurred in Hollywood when Brunton, an aspiring actor and model, was working as a waiter. Brunton says that he and Takei exchanged numbers after meeting at a gay club, and that they occasionally called one another and continued to socialize at clubs. Tommaso Boddi/WireImage Although Brunton had a boyfriend at the time, he says that Takei invited him to dinner and the theater. “He was a great ear,” Brunton recalls.
