Producer Benny Medina has been added to the list of folks in Hollywood accused of sexual misconduct.
On Friday, The Advocate published an interview with Sordid Lives star Jason Dottley, who says Medina attempted to rape him at his Los Angeles mansion in 2008.
Dottley said he was inspired to tell his story after Anthony Rapp went public with allegations against actor Kevin Spacey.
“There was no ‘Do you want to see my bedroom?’ We literally got to the door and he grabbed me by the chest of my shirt and threw me onto his bed. Now I’m 6 foot tall and was 155 pounds, and this is a stocky strong man. We all have these things playing in our heads of what would we ever do if someone ever tried to do something, and none of my preplanned motions would work.”
A statement from Medina lawyers Howard Weitzman and Shawn Holley said Medina “categorically denies the allegation of attempted rape.”
