"So there was a "lack of sufficient evidence" to proceed with a case", the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said.

After Rapp made his allegation, Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the encounter but apologised for "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

Spacey, 58, is the former artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London and is the subject of multiple police investigations in MA and England.

That mistake might have stayed in Nadal's head, because he played terribly in the ensuing tiebreaker. Thiem collected 24 of the opening set's 31 points, thanks in large part to a 13-3 edge in winners.

She told TheWrap that she was 18 at the time of the alleged rape, which she claimed happened after Seagal invited her to a wrap party for the movie at his Beverly Hills home in 1993.

Seagal is still under scrutiny for another alleged sexual assault, although the details of the accusation are unclear.

"Mr. Seagal denies all accusations and continues to stand his ground that he has not engaged in any such misconduct".

According to Variety, there is still one more case that the sheriff's department are reviewing regarding relating to the shamed House of Cards star.

Another sexual assault allegation against Spacey, also originating from the sheriff's department and turned over to the task force on August 22, is still under review. "It's unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim".

They added: 'The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter.
