A new accuser - this one with a Norwegian royal connection - has come forward to tell Norwegian media that Kevin Spacey groped him under a table at a Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo 10 years ago.

Ari Behn was married to Norway's Princess Märtha Louise at the time and met the actor during a Nobel Peace Prize party.

While speaking to a leading Norwegian radio station, Behn said, "We had a nice conversation, he was sitting right next to me".

Ari Behn, who was married to Princess Martha Louise at the time, claims Spacey grabbed his genitals under the table.

What do you think of the shock allegations against Kevin Spacey?

In 2016, the Norwegian royal court announced that Behn and the princess were to going to divorce, the first in the modern history of the Norwegian royal family.

The couple share three daughters together; Maud Angelica, 14, Leah Isadora, 12, and nine-year-old Emma Tallulah.

Ari Behn, who divorced Princess Martha Louise of Norway past year, admitted to being taken back by Spacey's behaviour.

Spacey's rep did not react to a request for remark from USA TODAY.

The others accused Spacey of nonconsensual touching, and they said that the actor was fond of making crude comments towards production staffers who were typically young and male.

Rather than deny the incident, which was alleged to have been in 1986, Spacey said while he didn't remember, he apologised anyway. Spacey checked into an Arizona luxury rehab centre for sex addiction treatment last month. Later, Spacey cornered him and touched him inappropriately.

Spacey's publicist cut ties with the actor on Thursday and it was not known who now represents him, while Netflix severed ties with Spacey, saying it will not be involved in any production of House of Cards if the actor continues to appear in the show. And he is under criminal investigation for alleged sexual assaults in both London and in Nantucket, Mass.
