Actor George Takei has been accused of sexually assaulting a model in 1981

Brunton says when they went back to Takei's home he was given some sort of date rape drug, causing him to pass out.

Brunton said he never went public with the story as he thought no one would believe him. "I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do", the 80-year-old continued. "I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do", Takei wrote on Twitter. The alleged event "simply did not occur", Takei said. "I can not tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these hard times". "He goes, 'You need to relax".

This morning, Takei refuted the account in a series of Tweets.

Actor George Takei fired back at sexual assault allegations against him with a forceful denial on Saturday.

Heather Unruh told reporters on Wednesday that Spacey stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old-son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at a restaurant in July 2016.

In the THR interview, Bruton alleged that after a night of drinking, socializing and confiding in the then-43- or 44-year-old Takei about a recent break-up with his boyfriend, the two went to Takei's condo, where Brunton seemingly passed out.

"I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do".

Brunton alleged when he awoke, Takei "had my trousers down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear".

"When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong", Takei said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on October 30. Recently, Takei himself strongly denounced actor Kevin Spacey, who publicly revealed he was gay as he came under withering pressure for allegedly sexually assaulting 15 young men.

In his tweets on Saturday, he said: "I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment". "For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it".

Following a backlash on his Twitter and Facebook pages, Takei responded to the allegations on Facebook, writing that he is as "shocked and bewildered at these claims" as his fans are.

He claimed that they often hung out with other friends and spent countless hours on the phone talking about life and their careers.
