Kevin Spacey's brother says their father was a "Nazi child rapist" who hated Jews and sexually abused his own son for years and their mother knew


Kevin Spacey, the lead actor in the American drama series House of Cards, was accused by fellow actor Anthony Rapp of molesting him when he was 14 years old. Following the allegations, Spacey came out as gay. Now, his older brother, in a bid to explain the factors that shaped Spacey into who he is, has made some shocking revelations about the actor's childhood..
Spacey's older brother Randall Fowler, 62, said he and Spacey were brought up by a Nazi father who raped him (Fowler) and brutalized his family so badly that they called him The Creature. Fowler spoke to DailyMail, describing the current allegations leveled at his brother as "disturbing". He acknowledged he had been made aware of the allegations against his brother in the early hours of Monday morning.
The truth of Spacey's troubled upbringing is being revealed as the Oscar-winning actor faces allegations of trying to seduce Star Trek's Antony Rapp when he was just 14 years old and of sexually assaulting a relative of former US news anchor Heather Unruh.
Though brothers, Fowler and Spacey are estranged and their lives are worlds apart. Spacey is a popular actor while Fowler is a Rod Stewart impersonator and limo driver in Boise, Idaho. Fowler said that he, Spacey, and their older sister Julie, shared a brutal upbringing in a "house of horrors" dominated by their ultra right wing, perverted sadist of a father, Thomas Geoffrey Fowler.
Fowler said he avoided having children of his own for fear that they would "inherit the sexual predator gene" from his father who was such an abusive figure. Fowler recounted the toll their father's abusive behaviour took on him and his siblings in an interview. Fowler said he was briefly a Scout but his father made him quit when he discovered that the scoutmaster was Jewish. Spacey was never allowed to join. He said his father would force them to sit through dinnertime rants as he lectured them on white supremacy, claimed that the Holocaust was a lie, that Jews ran banks and Hollywood, and that something called 'biocrud' would destroy the planet. He would stand behind Fowler with a riding whip, demanding that he read whatever diatribe he picked and beat him if he refused.
He also said that as a boy Spacey tried to placate his father while Fowler took the brunt of their father's sadistic abuse. Their elder sister, Julie, also endured beatings at her father's hands and ran away when she was 18 years old.
In his harrowing account Fowler recalled: "There was so much darkness in our home it was beyond belief. It was absolutely miserable."
He said: "Kevin tried to avoid what was going on by wrapping himself in an emotional bubble. He became very sly and smart. He was so determined to try to avoid the whippings that he just minded his Ps and Qs until there was nothing inside. He had no feelings."
Fowler spoke of a rootless childhood during which their father forced his family to move 10 times - from Colorado where he was born in 1956, to New Jersey where Spacey was born three years later and finally onto Los Angeles. Wherever they were, he and his siblings were "trapped" he said. Friends were not permitted in the Fowler household for fear that they would see the walls of Thomas Geoffrey Fowler's office, lined with pictures of naked men and women and pornography, according to Fowler. 
Their father, Thomas Geoffrey Fowler, joined the American Nazi Party when Spacey and his brother were just boys. He trimmed his mustache to resemble Adolf Hitler and he regularly whipped and raped his eldest son, Randall Fowler.

Fowler said that their mother, Kathleen was the breadwinner. She had a steady job as a secretary while her husband, a technical writer by trade, occasionally took freelance work. According to Fowler, his mother was "disgusted" by his father by 1963 when it transpired that he was abusing a teenage girl who was a relative. 
When Fowler was 12 years old, his father summoned him to his bedroom and said he was going to teach him about the birds and the bees.
Fowler said: "He unbuttoned my pants and started playing with me."
Horrified he yelled for his mother. Fowler said: "She came right up and pounded on the door but Dad had locked it and he told me to keep quiet. All of a sudden the pounding stopped. Mom had left. I'd never felt so abandoned. Dad started to perform a sex act on me. That was the beginning of my adolescence."
From there, for the next four years, the sex got rougher and the sessions got longer and more frequent, Fowler said. Fowler responded to the abuse by rebelling. His sister ran away from home. Spacey, he recalled, "turned into himself" and tried not to get into trouble. The actor would try to distract and cheer everyone up with his impersonations of famous people like Johnny Carson. Fowler said, looking back, acting was "maybe an escape" for his younger brother.
For his part, Fowler said: "I constantly threatened my father that if he ever touched my brother, I'd confront my mother with what was going on and that would destroy the family."
He "sacrificed" himself he said, for the sake of his little brother. Fowler added: "He and I were very close because we had so very few friends."
Fowler almost ended his life. He once went as far as putting the barrel of a gun in his mouth but what stopped him was the realization that without him, there would be nobody there to protect his younger brother. 
In later years their mother wrote a letter to all three children. Fowler said that she did not attempt to apologize or even fully acknowledge what they had suffered at their father's hands. Instead, he said, she "tried to justify" their father's behavior, saying that his own childhood was troubled. In 1990 Fowler finally confronted his mother in front of both Spacey and their sister Julie. Their father had been rushed to the hospital and all of his children had assembled.
Fowler recalled: "Our mother just sat in stony silence."
Thomas Geoffrey Fowler died at the age of 68. Spacey called his brother to let him know of their father's death and their mother called Fowler on Christmas Day to tell him that he need not come to the funeral. From then on Spacey's bond with his mother intensified, Fowler said, and their own relationship suffered.

At the time of the interview, Fowler described his brother as an "empty vessel" who had never had a real relationship with anyone other than his mother.
He said: "Neither of us had a chance growing up with two such damaged parents. I went through three marriages and 40 affairs."
When she died on March 19, 2003, Spacey had her cremated under a false name - Ruby Stevens - as he was adamant that the family keep the media in the dark. Her ashes were divided into two star-shaped containers with a gold plaque bearing her favorite saying, "Everything will be fine."

Today, Spacey faces two allegations of assault and admits there are more "stories" about him. He has admitted that he has loved and had romantic relationships with both men and women and "chooses to live life as a gay man". He also claims not to recall the incident with Rapp, and has issued an apology of sorts.
