Kevin Spacey has reportedly checked into a $36,000-per-month sex addiction clinic in Arizona, after the string of sexual harassment and assault claims that have been made against him in the past week.

Sources told the Daily Mail that the House of Cards star is at The Meadows rehabilitation clinic in Wickenburg, which is known for having celebrity clientele.

Last week it was reported that Hollywood producer and alleged serial assaulter Harvey Weinstein was also at The Meadows, after he was apparently seen in disguise at a restaurant in nearby city Phoenix.

The luxury clinic has a fitness center and a swimming pool, as well as classes in horse riding, yoga, tai chi, acupuncture and ‘mindfulness meditation.’

It also runs a programme called ‘Gentle Paths,’ which supposedly treats male sex-addiction through methods such as ‘Expressive Arts’ and ‘Equine Therapy.’

Spacey came out as gay last week, following allegations that he made sexual advances on a teenage boy in 1986.

In a Twitter post, Spacey said he had been in relationships with both men and women in his life.

“I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.”

The statement came after an interview with BuzzFeed in which Star Trek star Anthony Rapp, now aged 46, claimed that when he was a 14-year-old, Spacey invited him to a party at his New York apartment, and while drunk, tried to seduce him by climbing on top of him.

Rapp claimed that he managed to flee before the encounter progressed any further.

Spacey’s coming out in response to assault allegations sparked massive backlash, with people saying he was deflecting from his actions, and associating homosexuality with paedophilia.

LGBT+ public figures Owen Jones, Billy Eichner, Zachary Quinto and Sue Perkins were among those to condemn the message.

“Well done Kev. You stay silent on your sexuality until the time comes when you can conflate it with an alleged sexual assault on a minor,” Perkins said.

“In doing so, you simultaneously undervalue the horrific nature of the allegation and set back the LGBT+ community. Well done.”

Netflix have sacked Spacey from House of Cards and changed the cover-picture of the series, as eight people have said he was “predatory” towards them on set, and made it a “toxic work environment.
