'This didn't age well.

While Takei provided no time frame or specific details about those encounters, there are some similarities between his description and his accuser's account, notably the location at his home and the type of physical contact.

Model Scott R. Brunton, who was a 23-year-old waiter and aspiring actor at the time, said the incident happened in the early 1980s when the pair went back to George's condo for a drink.

He said he was inspired to come forward with his experience with Takei following reports on allegations of sexual misconduct against numerous ofter Hollywood figures in recent weeks.

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

"I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off, and he said, 'OK, fine, '" the former model and actor said.

Years later, Brunton was living in Portland when Takei visited the city on a book tour.

"He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend".

Brunton alleges that after a few drinks at Takei's home in California, in the early 80s, he fell asleep on a bean bag chair and when he awoke he found his pants were around his ankles and claims Takei, who was 43 or 44 at the time, was groping him. He started feeling "terrible" after the actor gave him two drinks. Brunton recalled feeling disoriented and passing out on a beanbag chair. "I went out to my vehicle and I sat in it and that was that".

He doesn't know how much time passed, but the next thing he remembers is waking up, his trousers down around his ankles, and Takei on top of him pushing his hand down his underwear, Brunton said.

"The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur", Takei wrote Saturday morning, "and I do not know why he has claimed them now". The fact that "I did not get it", he said, "makes me reassess every relationship I have ever thought was playful and mutual".

Brunton said he told Takei he had to go home, though he was "still a little bit out of it". Four of Brunton's friends confirmed he had related the story to them "years ago".

Brunton met Takei was he was in his twenties and Takei was in his forties.

"When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is wrong", Takei said in a statement released to PEOPLE. "They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it", he continued.

Takei denied the allegation on Saturday.
