Piers Morgan has been accused of spreading ‘fake news’ after making a bold claim about his interview with Kevin Spacey.

The Uncensored host, 59, is no stranger to contraversial interviews, having recently grilled Baby Reindeer’s ‘real Martha’ Fiona Harvey.

He’s now announced an interview with House of Cards actor Spacey, 64, will be going live on Tuesday night, after he was was acquitted last year of 12 sexual offences alleged by four men between 2001 and 2013.

Morgan declared on X: ‘UPDATE: Just finished an astounding 90-minute interview with ⁦@KevinSpacey⁩ .

‘His first in-studio interview for 7yrs. It will premiere on our ⁦@PiersUncensored⁩ YouTube channel at 8pm UK time tomorrow. You won’t want to miss this…’

Followers were quick to note one mistake Morgan seemed to have made, after he claimed it was Spacey’s ‘first in-studio interview’.

Just days ago, podcaster Lex Fridman published an interview with Spacey on his own YouTube channel and podcast, titled: ‘Kevin Spacey: Power, Controversy, Betrayal, Truth & Love in Film and Life.’

Great!

Didn’t @lexfridman beat you to this by a few days?

Technically, that interview was also conducted in a studio.

Correcting Morgan’s post, @Chusidel commented: ‘Great! Didn’t @lexfridman beat you to this by a few days? Technically, that interview was also conducted in a studio.’

@WutFoxSays added: ‘He did appear on Lex …. so I guess his podcast “room” does not count as a studio.’

‘Impressive! Hasn’t @lexfridman already covered this topic a few days ago? In fact, that particular interview was also held within a studio setting,’ @EX1LEISR echoed.

@travers7 also said: ‘He already told all on the Lex Fridman podcast..’

@Darrinotoole added: ‘Fake news, @lexfridman had that. Don’t be that guy Piers.’

In Fridman’s podcast, the two-time Oscar winning actor spoke of the allegations against him, for which he was acquitted.

He said: ‘I have heard, now and often, that everyone has a Kevin Spacey story, and what that tells me is that I hit on a lot of guys.’

He denied doing ‘anything sexual with an under age person’ and said: ‘I did a lot of things that at the time I thought were playful and fun, and I have learned since were not.

‘I have had to recognise that I crossed some boundaries and did some things that were wrong and made some mistakes, and that’s in my past.’

He went on to say he’s ‘so romantic’ and the allegations have been ‘very upsetting’, insisting he’d ‘never, ever, ever behave in those ways again’.

One civil case brought against Spacey wasa by Rent star Anthony Rapp who alleged Spacey had molested him when he was 14. Spacey won the case in October 2022.
