"You need to relax".

'It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting freakish instances in their lives, this always comes up.

When Brunton broke up with the man he was dating at the time, he told Takei, who took the opportunity to invite the model to dinner and the theater. Best known for his work in the original Star Trek series, the 80-year-old has since become a prominent activist and an increasingly popular presence on social media. He said he likely would have never come forward publicly had it not been for Takei's response to sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey.

Actor George Takei makes this "Live Long and Prosper" sign as he attends the star presentation ceremony for Walter Koenig on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California, on September 10,1 2012. "I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", Takei wrote on Twitter early Saturday. "And I thought, 'OK, that would be nice'". I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it'.

Trump's comments have provoked concern that he may improperly influence the Justice Department to block the deal. The news comes amid AT&T's possible $84.5 billion merger with Time Warner, which owns Turner Broadcasting's CNN.

After feeling lightheaded and seemingly passing out, the alleged victim says he came to with his trousers around his ankles as Takei was "groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off." .

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to four of Mr Brunton's long-time friends - Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward - who confirmed the former model had confided in them about his encounter. "I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair", said Brunton, who added that he believes he passed out for a few minutes.

After their night out, Brunton told THR that he and Takei retired to the actor's condo, where they had drinks. "I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'Okay, fine.'" Brunton said he put his trousers back on and left, even after Takei warned him he was "in no condition to drive". You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked. I walked out and went to my vehicle until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that, ' Brunton claims.

The 80-year-old actor is now out of the country traveling in Australia and Japan and is not available for comment.

He told The Hollywood Reporter Takei was "very good at consoling me" before the pair went back to his condo for a drink.

Takei has yet to address Brunton's allegations against him.

"When power is used in a nonconsensual situation, it is a wrong", Takei said. "And I said sure". When it came out that Spacey had attempted to sleep with Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp when the latter was 14-years-old - a charge that proved to be the first of many disturbing allegations - Takei was not shy about sharing his opinion on the matter.

Takei apparently took offense to that, and aid: 'Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight - that is a deflection, ' in a statement to THR.
