The new accusations follow the allegation by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him in the 1980s when he was just 14 and Spacey was 26.
Spacey apologised in a widely criticised statement in which he said he was "beyond horrified" by Rapp's account, adding that he did not recall the incident.
