This just in: infamous actor Kevin Spacey, most famous for his leading role in American Beauty and his lead role in the tv series House of Cards, is currently in debt to MRC, the Producer of House of Cards, for breaching the sexual harassment policy of the company. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the House of Cards producer MRC for violating the sexual harassment policies Spacey had signed a contract in allegiance to. The total cost of the violation of rules has amounted to $31 million, equivalent to £23 million. 

Spacey portrayed Frank Underwood in the political television show, and was quickly fired after allegations started surfacing of Spacey abusing his influence in the work space and sexually preying on young male staff present on set. 

His acting and production contracts were swiftly cancelled as MRC embarked on investigating the matters. 

MRC has reported that thanks to an arbitrator, Spacey must allegedly follow through with the money, following an extensive ‘two-year legal battle behind closed doors.’ 

MRC has already filed the papers confirming this arbitration, and requesting the due money from Spacey in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday 22 November, 2021.

The arbitrator approved of the third party witnesses’ credibility, and approved of the allegations against Spacey, quoting them as true. Therefore, Spacey ‘egregious breaches of contract’ have permitted MRC from ‘obligations to pay him any further compensation in connection with the show’. Spacey has been made  further liable for the ‘extra costs’ amounoting MRC and the show tens of millions. Due to his behavior, MRC had to shorten their sixth season in half, and suffered additional costs to rewrite it and shorten it to only 8 episodes in order to release it for its appropriate deadline. 

However, regardless of the money that this breach in policy is costing Spacey, MRC claims that it is important to go through with this prosecution because ‘The safety of our employees, sets and work environments is of paramount importance to MRC and why we set out to push for accountability.” 

Many people are proud of MRC for pushing this long, a handful of years after the allegations came out, insisting on recieving compensation from Spacey, proving the point of the importance of accountability.
