George Takei is the latest in an ever-growing lineup of public figures to be accused of committing sexual assault.

Brunton, shared his story with The Hollywood Reporter and state that, in 1981, Takei attempted to undress and inappropriately touch the former actor and model after the two ended an evening together with drinks at Takei's condo.

The pair kept in touch as friends, and Brunton alleged that Takei offered to take him out for dinner and to the theater after Brunton broke up with an ex-boyfriend. "He was a great ear".

"I don't want anything from him but an apology", he says.

Mr Bunton said he was spurred to reveal his story after Takei responded to allegations against fellow actor Kevin Spacey.

Brunton had the following to say about the incident that occurred at Takei's apartment: "I have the second one, and then all of a sudden I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out".

"I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", Takei wrote on Twitter Saturday morning.

Brunton said he met Takei, who came out as a gay man in 2005, when he was a 23-year-old waiter and aspiring model/actor. After feeling lightheaded and seemingly passing out, the alleged victim says he came to with his trousers around his ankles as Takei was "groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off." . I can not tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these hard times.

Regarding his decision to come forward over 35 years later, Brunton said he chose to speak out after learning about the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal.

"He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend", Brunton said. "I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that", Brunton said. "I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'OK, fine.' And I said I am going to go".

"When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong", Takei said.

Spacey apologised, saying he didn't remember the incident, while also coming out as gay in the same statement. "For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago". Bruton said that he met up with Takei "years later" during the actor's book tour visit in Portland.

"George is traveling in Japan and Australia and not reachable for comment", Julia Buchwald told the Hollywood Reporter.

Takei went on to stress how the allegations simply aren't in character for him.
