"I can not tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these hard times", he said. According to Brunton, Takei invited him to dinner one evening, and the two went back to the actor's condo for a drink.

The claims against Mr Takei comes amid a wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations crashing across the world. "Brunton says that when he was waking up, "(Takei) 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". "I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it".

When he came to, his trousers were at his ankles and Takei was reportedly groping his crotch and trying to take off his underwear.

Since the allegations dropped in The Hollywood Reporter, Takei has seemingly remained offline and his rep said that she was unable to contact him. Brunton recalled saying, "I don't want to do this", pushing Takei away, and driving himself home.

Brunton has alleged the star, who is famous for his role as Hikaru Sulo in the Star Trek TV series and Nakamura in "Heroes", groped him at a Los Angeles bar when he was 23 and had just moved to Hollywood. I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this.' He goes, 'You need to relax. "I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that".

Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter he was living in Hollywood when he met Takei at a bar.

In a series of tweets Saturday, Takei said the events described in a "Hollywood Reporter" interview with Scott R. Brunton "simply did not occur".

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. "But I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment".

Brunton told THR that he later woke up to Takei's unwanted advance. Just a few days ago, the actor spoke out against Kevin Spacey calling his alleged sexual abuse of Anthony Rapp, "an abuse of power".

Takei is yet to comment on the allegations.

He claimed that they often hung out with other friends and spent countless hours on the phone talking about life and their careers.
