In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Scott R. Brunton, accused the Star Trek actor of groping him while they were in Takei’s Los Angeles condo.

“The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now,” the 80-year-old Takei wrote on Facebook. “I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do. But I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment.”
