George Takei Denies Sexual Assault Allegations, Doesn't Remember His Accuser

George Takei is speaking out to deny allegations of sexual assault made against him by former model Scott R. Brunton.

Brunton says the incident happened in 1981, when he and Takei became friends. When he went to the former Star Trek actor’s apartment one night for drinks, he claims he felt dizzy and passed out, later waking up with his pants around his ankles and Takei groping his crotch and trying to get his underwear off.

Takei, an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community throughout the years, denies that the incident ever happened and says he doesn’t remember Mr. Brunton.

“The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do,” he wrote in a series of tweets. Read them all below.

George Takei Accused of Groping Unconscious Model in 1981

George Takei has been accused of trying to take advantage of an unconscious male model back in 1981.

Scott R. Brunton says he was an aspiring model and actor when he met George in the early 80s.

The men became friends and after Scott broke up with his boyfriend, he and George went out for an evening of dinner and the theater before heading back to George‘s home.

“All of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair. So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out,” Scott told THR.

He added, “The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants 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.”

Scott immediately left the home. He met up with George years after the incident but said it was too uncomfortable to bring up the situation.

Scott says he is looking for an apology from George.

George Takei's Bid for Congress Was an April Fools' Day Joke

The legendary Star Trek actor said on March 31 that he would run for Congress in 2018 against Republican Devin Nunes for a the seat in California’s 22nd District.

Celebs like Sophia Bush and Mark Ruffalo tweeted their support for Takei after he made his announcement.

George Takei Announces His Congressional Campaign!

UPDATE: It was all an April Fools’ Day joke!

George Takei might be taking a leap into politics!

The 79-year-old former Star Trek actor took to Twitter early Saturday morning (April 1) to let fans know he’s running for congress.

“Well, the cat’s out of the bag it seems. Let’s do this! #Takei2018,” George wrote on his account.

He also included a link to a The Daily Buzz article that explained George and his husband Brad are moving to a small California town where he will launch his career.

“With what is going on now in the country, I couldn’t stand by any longer merely as a citizen. I knew I had to take a bigger stand. So that’s why I’m running for Congress. My hope is to challenge Davin Nunes for his seat in 2018,” George told the website.

George went on to say he wants minorities to be represented in Congress and to be a “champion for all people.”

He also formally ran for City Council in Los Angeles in 1973 and served on the board of directors of the Southern California Rapid Transit District.

While it appears that many people are excited about the news, some are questioning if the announcement is simply an April Fool’s Day prank!

George Takei Clarifies His Comments on Star Trek's 'Gay Sulu'

George Takei has taken to his Facebook account to release a lengthy statement clarifying his previous comments about “gay Sulu” in Star Trek Beyond.

The 79-year-old actor previously said that it was “unfortunate” that his classic character is gay in the new film franchise, despite himself being openly gay and a supporter of the LGBT community.

“I gave a lengthy telephone interview, but the headlines have been misleading. Apparently, controversy makes for better sales! Let me be clear: I am not disappointed that there is a gay character in Star Trek,” George said in his new statement. “On the contrary, as I made clear, I am delighted that the Star Trek franchise has addressed this issue, which is truly one of diversity. It is thrilling to know that future generations will not see LGBTs go wholly unrepresented in the Trek universe.”
