OH MY! George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting Former Model in 1981


Hollywood Reporter: Accuser Scott R. Brunton says he was groped by the ‘Star Trek’ icon at the actor’s Los Angeles condo.

A former model and actor is accusing Star Trek icon George Takei of sexual assault in 1981. The accuser, Scott R. Brunton, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, claims that Takei took advantage of him when he was most vulnerable.

“This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it,” Brunton tells The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. “It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting bizarre instances in their lives, this always comes up. I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it.”

Brunton says he was living in Hollywood in 1981, working as a waiter and beginning a career as a commercial actor and model when he met a 43- or 44-year-old Takei one evening at Greg’s Blue Dot bar. The men exchanged numbers and would call one another from time to time as well as run into each other at clubs, Brunton says. When Brunton broke up with his then-boyfriend, he spoke with Takei. “He said, ‘Let me know what your new number is’ and I did. And not long after we broke up and I moved out, George called me,” Brunton recalls.

Takei, as Brunton tells it, invited him to dinner and the theater. “He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend,” Brunton says. “He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve.”

The two men went back to the actor’s condo for a drink the same night. “We have the drink and he asks if I would like another,” Brunton recalls. “And I said sure. 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. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair. So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out.”

  1. In 1954, when I was 13, a Christian Brother had me lie belly down on a chair and he slapped my ass with a paddle about six times. I was caught smoking in the lavatory. I never told my parents because my Mother, rest her soul, would have kicked the shit out of me. But, in all seriousness, do you think I have a good sexual harassment case today? I’m 76 and I still have nightmares over it.
    Actually, I get a fit of laughing when I think of these things. But I’m sure if I went to CNN with that story, I’d get on TV, maybe even on “The View.” Whadda you think guys? Should I come out with it? Advice appreciated.

  2. “The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants 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,”

    Ah, the timeless art of seduction.

  3. @Moe Tom (at 12:48 am): Do you get flashbacks when you see a bottle of their brandy?

    P.S. – You’re lucky that George Takei wasn’t around at that time. He’s been known to boldly go where no man has gone before.


  4. Vietvet. What the good Brother was saying with each slap across the ass was, stop smoking, it’s not good for your lungs and you will never get on the football team. He was right. LOL

  5. Ain’t Karma great George! When I think of Star Trek the characters that come quickly to mind are Capt Kirk, Mr. Spock (of course), Scotty and Lt. Uhura (for the obvious reasons) but not George or his character.
