“I know that around me there are a lot of stories, they draw on the fact that I protect their privacy. My family know that I had relations with women and with men. I loved romantic encounters with men throughout my life and now I choose to live as gay. I want to deal with it honestly and openly, and it begins with an examination of my own behavior,” wrote an open letter to Kevin spacey in his Twitter account.

Then spacey was 25 years, while RAPP is only 14 years old. He invited the young man to one of the parties. After the guests left and they were alone, Kevin put a colleague on the bed and lay on top. No contact was not, after all, Anthony could be freed from the embrace of spacey. According to RAPP, he gave more confidence to the unfolding scandal, so he told this story.

But if I did so, as he describes, I must offer him a sincere apology for my extremely inappropriate drunken behavior. I’m sorry that the feelings that he describes, was with him for years.”
