A MASSAGE therapist who accused Kevin Spacey of sexual assault has died, however the lawsuit may still continue, according to court records.
Spacey is being investigated in London and Los Angeles over several allegations and faced a federal lawsuit alleging he assaulted the late masseur.

Lawyers for Spacey, real name Kevin Fowler, filed a “notice of statement noting plaintiff’s death” in the federal case on Tuesday.
They said they were informed on September 11 that the masseur had “recently passed.”
The filing said: “No further information or details have been given to Mr Fowler’s counsel, but Plaintiff’s counsel stated they intended to notify the Court with additional information at an appropriate time in the future.”
The massage therapist had claimed he was attacked by the House of Cards actor three years ago during a massage session in Malibu.
Spacey, 60, allegedly twice grabbed the masseur’s hand and guided it to his private parts, the suit said.
The Oscar winner was also accused of grabbing the alleged victim’s shoulders in an attempt to kiss him and trying to fondle his genitals.
Spacey also allegedly asked to perform a sex act on the massage therapist — causing him to bolt from the session.
The Hollywood actor strongly denies the allegations against him.
The lawsuit could be continued by the therapist’s estate in the wake of his death, which was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Spacey has been accused by more than a dozen men of sexual misconduct.
In July, Spacey’s sex assault criminal case was dropped after his teenage accuser allegedly refused to testify in court.
The actor was accused of reaching down the pants of a then 18-year-old man and groping him at a bar in 2016.
The accuser, now 21, was ordered to testify about a mobile phone he used the night of the alleged assault.
He was supposed to turn it over to the defence, but said it was missing.
The actor denies the allegations against him and faced up to five years in prison if convicted.
However, these are not the only claims which the actor faces, as he is still under investigation in Los Angeles and London.
Spacey is being accused of sexual assault in episodes dating back to the 1980s by multiple men.

A series of allegations then emerged, many of them from people who had worked with Spacey in the entertainment industry in Britain and the US.
Also in July, the Metropolitan Police confirmed they had flown out to the US in May to interview Spacey in relation to six more allegations of sex attacks between 1996 and 2013 which took place in the UK.
The Hollywood star was interviewed voluntarily and has not been arrested.
