Kevin named and shamed in sex scandal

Kevin Costner has been officially named as the actor accused of performing a lewd sex act in front of a masseuse while honeymooning in Scotland in 2004. The Hollywood star allegedly grabbed the 34-year-old woman while she was massaging him at the five-star old Course Hotel spa, before dropping his towel and exposing himself. The masseuse, who was awarded undisclosed payout from the hotel after accusing them of unfair dismissal and sexual discrimination, claims she was fired when she complained to management about Kevin’s behaviour. Kevin’s name was officially released to the British press on Tuesday, although rumours circulated last month linking Kevin to the case. At the time his publicist issued a statement saying, “We find it unfortunate that or. Costner’s name has been brought into what is essentially a dispute between a company owned by a good friend of his and a former employee – and that it would tarnish what was a wonderful time spent at this resort with his wife.” Following the recent development, he reiterated, “This was never about Kevin Costner. It was a dispute between a hotel and an ex-employee.” [27 April 2006]
