Last week, The Goldwater reported that actor Anthony Rapp had come forward to accuse Kevin Spacey of sexual assault,
Several days later, Spacey finally made a public statement regarding the accusations.
Now, just two days after Kevin Spacey both came out as gay and issued a public apology to actor Anthony Rapp after he came forward to say Spacey had made sexual advances on him when he was 14, Spacey's brother, Randall Fowler, who makes his living as a Rod Stewart impersonator, says their neo-Nazi father sexually abused him in his childhood.

Fowler's revelation of Spacey's mistreatment at the hands of their Nazi father was made when he came forward Tuesday to describe their childhood. Fowler told Daily Mail back in 2004 that his father, Thomas Geoffrey Fowler, frequently abused Kevin and pulled him from Cub Scouts when he discovered the leader was Jewish, "There was so much darkness in our home it was beyond belief. It was absolutely miserable." Fowler revealed Kevin was whipped and raped by their father as well as their sister Julie who he says was also regularly beaten before leaving home.
Spacey's brother said Kevin tried to ignore the deeply troubling abuse by blocking it out and disconnecting. "Kevin tried to avoid what was going on by wrapping himself in an emotional bubble. He became very sly and smart," Fowler said. "He was so determined to try to avoid the whippings that he just minded his Ps and Qs until there was nothing inside. He had no feelings." The report differs widely from Spacey's own account which said his father, who died on Christmas Eve in 1992, was a "very normal, middle-class man, born in Caspar, Wyoming. But he had an absolute love of England. He spent the war here. I think he always fancied himself as an aristocrat. He admired things of that kind of sophistication; leather-bound books, beautiful watches, cufflinks …," Spacey said in an interview with Esquire magazine.
When the accusations came out from Anthony Rapp Spacey responded on Twitter with an apology and a coming out statement saying it "has encouraged me to address other things about my life. I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fuelled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy. As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behaviour."

Former Star Trek actor George Takei weighed in on the accusations saying, "For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. For Kevin Spacey, who claims not to remember the incident, he was the older, dominant one who had his way. Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight - that is a deflection. They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it."
Kevin Spacey was scheduled to receive an Emmy award in New York next month but they have chosen to revoke it after the allegations surfaced. Netflix announced they would be canceling the show House Of Cards that starred Spacey the day after his apology. As of today, Netflix has suspended production indefinitely saying "until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew." It is unclear what kind of relationship Kevin Spacey and Randall Fowler currently have or if they are even in contact.
