'House of Cards' actor Kevin Spacey to pay $31 million over alleged misconduct losses

An LA court on Monday found that Kevin Spacey violated his contract demands for professional behaviour. MRC, the production company launched its legal battle against Spacey in 2019.

Disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey will have to pay almost $31 million to the production company that made the series 'House Of Cards' for Netflix, in which he starred, until he was fired over allegations of sexual harassment.

MRC, the production company launched its legal battle against Spacey in 2019 violating his contract. The studio had to fire Spacey, halt production for the hit show's sixth season, rewrite it to remove Spacey’s central character, and shorten it from 13 to eight episodes to meet deadlines, resulting in tens of millions in losses.

In the document, MRC detailed that after the allegations came to light it suspended Spacey and launched an investigation which found that the American Beauty star had "breached provisions of both the Acting and Executive Producing Agreements that set standards for his workplace conduct, including by breaching MRC's Harassment Policy."

The wave of accusations that halted the 62-year-old star's illustrious career came amid the rise of the #MeToo movement where thousands of women spoke out against sexual harassment and abuse, sparked by the case of the Hollywood producer and movie moghul Harvey Weinstein.
