  Ex Norwegian Royal Alleges Kevin Spacey Groped Him During Nobel Peace Prize Event The former husband of Norwegian King Harald’s daughter is alleging that actor Kevin Spacey groped him during the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo. Ari Behn, Princess Martha Louise’s husband for 14 years, told Norwegian radio that Spacey, who sat next to him, suddenly said “‘hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette,'” before “he touched me” on the genitals.

Hacking attempt!

He said: “Everyone who knew Dad will understand he wouldn’t want it any other way.

“He was never one for pomp. He was never one for ‘airs and graces’. That was never his style. So we ask that there be no formal suits nor black worn on this day of celebration.


“We want people to wear something that makes them feel happy and to come and remember Dad as he was – kind, generous and the life and soul of the party.”
