Kevin Spacey has checked into a specialist treatment center following the numerous accusations of sexual assault that have been made against the actor, PEOPLE confirms.

On Nov. 2, a representative for the actor confirmed he was seeking treatment. “Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” said the representative in a statement. “No other information will be available at this time.”

Spacey’s decision came after numerous allegations that Spacey made unwanted sexual advances towards young men over the years.

The first allegation came to light after Star Trek: Discovery and Rent star Anthony Rapp, 46, claimed in an Oct. 29 BuzzFeed News report that Spacey made inappropriate sexual advances toward him at a private party in New York City in 1986. Spacey was 26 at the time and Rapp was 14.

“I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out, to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me,” Rapp said in a statement to PEOPLE.

In response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn’t remember Rapp’s alleged incident and apologized “for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” He also publicly came out as gay, which was met with criticism from prominent LGBTQ celebrities.

Spacey has not issued a response to any of the allegations beyond Rapp.

Everyone Who Has Accused Kevin Spacey of Sexual Misconduct ANTHONY RAPP: <p>The Rent actor was the first to come out with an allegation of sexual misconduct against Spacey, telling BuzzFeed that Spacey laid on top of him when he was just 14 years old in 1986. At the time, Rapp was starring in Precious Sons on Broadway, and Spacey was acting in Long Day's Journey Into Night. Rapp said they met at a post-show event, and after a few interactions, Spacey invited Rapp to a party at his apartment. At the party, Rapp was the only minor there, and bored, went to the bedroom to watch TV, he said. Later on, Spacey allegedly came to the bedroom, and Rapp realized that everyone else had left. Rapp said that Spacey then picked him up and allegedly laid on top of him. “He was trying to seduce me,” Rapp said. “I don't know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.” Quickly, Rapp said he was able to "squirm" away. As he was leaving, Rapp said Spacey asked him if he was sure he wanted to go. Though Rapp shared his alleged experience with friends and family, the first time he went public with the allegations was in the BuzzFeed article. Spacey issued a statement saying he doesn’t remember the alleged incident, apologizing for “for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior” and announcing, “I choose now to live as a gay man.” A representative for the 58-year-old House of Cards star later told PEOPLE that Spacey is “is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.”</p> Everyone Who Has Accused Kevin Spacey of Sexual Misconduct
