PHOENIX — Kevin Spacey, the former star of the Netflix hit series “House of Cards,” has joined a long list of celebrities who have come to Arizona to seek rehabilitation.

According to The Daily Mail, Spacey has reportedly checked himself into The Meadows in Wickenburg, Arizona.

In a statement to the publication, the actor’s representatives said Spacey is “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.”

The move comes after multiple people accused Spacey of inappropriate behavior, from harassment on the set of “House of Cards” to sexual assault.

The allegations began to surface after actor Anthony Rapp alleged in a Buzzfeed News article that Spacey tried to seduce him in 1986, when Rapp was just 14-years-old.

“In 1986, Spacey befriended Rapp while they both performed on Broadway shows, invited Rapp over to his apartment for a party, and, at the end of the night, picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance,” the article claimed.

“According to public records, Spacey was 26. Rapp was 14.”

In a statement released after the article was published, Spacey apologized for any “drunken” misbehavior and also came out as gay.

Shortly after, Netflix announced that the sixth season of “House of Cards” would be its last, before indefinitely suspending production of the show and booting Spacey from the cast altogether.

Spacey joins the likes of producer Harvey Weinstein, who began seeking treatment in Arizona after The New York Times published an explosive report detailing decades of sexual harassment claims against him.

It was first reported that Weinstein was also going to seek treatment at The Meadows, but he instead got help at a Scottsdale facility.
