George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Man in 1981

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Scott R. Brunton says he was 23 when Takei took advantage of him while Brunton was beginning his career as a commercial actor and model. According to THR, Brunton's story was corroborated by four of his friends who recalled Brunton telling them about the incident. It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting freakish instances in their lives, this always comes up.

"I did flirt with her, and I remember trying to kiss Jessica as part of what I thought was a consensual seduction ritual that went on and on for many years". Brunton claimed the two struck up a friendship soon after and later spent an evening together at dinner and a show after Brunton broke up with his boyfriend.

Brunton said the actor guided him over to a yellow bean bag chair. Brunton claimed he remembered waking up to find Takei on top of him, pulling his trousers down and trying to take off his underwear. So I want to try to tell you the complicated truth. He said Takei told him he was trying to make him comfortable.

Oscar victor Dreyfuss, 70, was accused of harassing and exposing himself to a female writer and said in a statement: "I became an ***hole". "And I said, 'I am going to go, and he said, 'If you feel you must".

"I got my trousers up, composed myself and I just couldn't believe this whole thing happened", Brunton told BuzzFeed News. "I don't want to do this.'" After rejecting Takei's advances, Brunton left, having to wait in his auto until he felt well enough to leave.

"I've led an honest, good life". Jessica Teich told the NY magazine blog Vulture.com that the actor made continual, overt and lewd comments and invitations after they met at a theater where she worked and Dreyfuss appeared.

Brunton said he was invited back to the "Star Trek" actor's home for a drink, and that's when Brunton says the assault happen.

A representative for Takei, Julia Buchwald, initially said Takei was out of the country and would not be able to comment.

Takei has denied the allegation of sexual misconduct on Twitter, saying the account given by Scott Brunton "simply did not occur". "I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Bruton, and I can not say I do", he continued.

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

"... Those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices", he said.

But then Takei says something curious, "I do take these claims very seriously". But he says it didn't involve having "power" over the other person.

Brunton said that the incident left him feeling betrayed.

Ms Teich, who was working with Dreyfuss on a Disney TV special, claims that as well as making "yucky, insinuating suggestions" he also indecently exposed himself to her during a meeting in his trailer on a studio lot.

'It was either in my home - he came to my home'.
