Brunton said he "must have passed out" after a drink, awaking to Takei groping him.

He went on to reveal: "He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend".

The actor also wrote on Twitter that his husband, Brad, is "100 percent beside me on this, as my life partner of more than 30 years and now my husband, stands fully by my side".

Following a night out, the duo reportedly went back to Takei's apartment for drinks. So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out.

"The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my trousers 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", Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter. "I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", he tweeted on Saturday.

"I always wanted to ask him-I just felt really betrayed", he said.

In another development in the barrage of sexual assault, harassment and rape allegations to rock the entertainment and other industries, MA prosecutors will meet with the son of a former Boston TV news anchor who said Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted the teenage boy at a Nantucket restaurant.

"Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight - that is a deflection", he continued. Just a few days ago, the actor spoke out against Kevin Spacey calling his alleged sexual abuse of Anthony Rapp, "an abuse of power".

Brunton said he later called Takei at his hotel and asked if he remembered him. According to THR, Brunton's story was corroborated by four of his friends who recalled Brunton telling them about the incident.

At this point its unclear whether Takei will take further measures to clear his name or Brunton will talk more of his allegation.
