Kevin Spacey’s brother, Randall Fowler, says their father was a neo-Nazi who would sexually abuse him.
Fowler, 62, claims that their father Thomas Geoffrey Fowler would rape him throughout his adolescence and that his mother knew of the abuse.
At the time of the interview, Fowler described his brother as an ’empty vessel’ who had never had a real relationship with anyone other than his mother.
He was not surprised that Anthony Rapp accused his Oscar-winning brother of trying to seduce him when he was 14, the Sun reported.
Fowler is a Rod Stewart impersonator and limo driver in Boise, Idaho. His life is a world away from that of his famous brother from whom he is estranged.
But, according to Fowler, along with older sister Julie, he and the notoriously secretive star shared a brutal upbringing in a ‘house of horrors’ dominated by their ultra-right wing, perverted sadist of a father.
Their older sister, Julie, also endured beatings before she fled home when she was 18, according to the Daily Mail.
Fowler told the Daily Mail that he refused to have children of his own because he feared they would “inherit the sexual predator gene.”
“I grew up in a living hell. There was so much darkness in our home it was beyond belief. It was absolutely miserable,” he said.
“Kevin tried to avoid what was going on by wrapping himself in an emotional bubble. He became very sly and smart,” he added. “He was so determined to try to avoid the whippings that he just minded his Ps and Qs until there was nothing inside. He had no feelings.”
“Neither of us had a chance growing up with two such damaged parents. I went through three marriages and 40 affairs,” he said in 2004.
A Spacey spokesman told the Daily Mail in 2004: “Kevin’s brother’s claim against his father is a very serious one and has been a difficult personal family matter.
“The family all feel deeply for his situation. Kevin has not experienced any of the distress that his brother describes as he has never been a victim of abuse and can only sympathize with him.”
Spacey who described his father, who died on Christmas Eve in 1992, as a “very normal, middle-class man, born in Caspar, Wyoming” in an interview in 2002.
“But he had an absolute love of England. He spent the war here. I think he always fancied himself as an aristocrat. He admired things of that kind of sophistication; leather-bound books, beautiful watches, cufflinks …,” he told Esquire magazine.
And there you have it, two very different versions of their childhood. Of course, there’s now the whole 14-year-old thing hanging over Kevin Spacey’s head.
