Following disturbing accusations from RENT star Anthony Rapp that Spacey made a sexual advance at him when he was 14, as well as a controversial apology from Spacey, TVLine reported that House of Cards' forthcoming sixth season would be the show's last.

"House of Cards" will conclude after its sixth season, which is now in production, a source close to production tells CNN.

But he came under a torrent of fire over claims from fellow actor Anthony Rapp that he "made a sexual advance" at a party 31 years ago while Rapp was under age, and for appearing to deflect the story by finally confirming what has been an open secret in Hollywood for years - that he is gay.

Then, just several lines later, Spacey announced that he is choosing "now to live as a gay man" -a revelation that many saw as a tactic to distract from Rapp's allegation.

The House of Cards star has been widely criticised.

"Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night's news concerning Kevin Spacey", said the companies in a joint statement published by Deadline on Monday.

Rapp said he squirmed free after a brief period of time and went into the bathroom, before leaving Spacey's apartment and went home. I'm beyond horrified to hear this story.

Amazon Q3 earnings top expectations
Amazon had almost 542,000 employees at the end of last month, about 160,000 more than it had the year before. Amazon has given other compensation over the past year to encourage Alexa skills development, though.

Sources in Deadline's report also hint that the future of Gore, a upcoming Spacey-starring Netflix feature film about the life of Gore Vidal, may be in question.

"During the time I worked with Kevin Spacey on 'House of Cards, ' I neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behavior on set or off", he said. "Nope. There's no amount of drunk or closeted that excuses or explains away assaulting a 14-year-old child".

Actors, writers and comedians have been voicing their anger over the actor's response to allegations that he tried to sexually assault a teenager when he was 26.

Spacey has been criticized for his response on social media by celebrities and LGBTQ activists and organizations, including GLAAD. Spacey further wrote that he owed Rapp a "sincere apology" for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".

Responding to the allegation, Spacey said that he does not recall the incident, and that he is "sorry for the feelings [Rapp] describes having carried with him all these years".

The claims come after the allegations about Harvey Weinstein prompted many people to speak out about their experiences of sexual harassment and abuse.

A spokesperson for the festival tells me that plan remains in place.
