Kevin Spacey is under investigation for a third allegation of sexual assault in London.

While Scotland Yard does not identify any person “who may, or may not be, subject to an investigation,” a spokesperson confirmed that the new allegation is against the same person currently under investigation for two other alleged sexual assaults, whom PEOPLE previously confirmed is the Oscar winner, 58.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: “On 13 December we received an allegation that the man sexually assaulted a man (Victim 3) in 2005 in Westminster. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating.”

Spacey was also accused of sexually assaulting a man in Lambeth, London, in 2005, and was already being investigated by Scotland Yard over a sexual assault in 2008, PEOPLE previously confirmed.

“On Wednesday, November 1, City of London Police referred an allegation of sexual assault to the Metropolitan Police Service,” a Scotland Yard spokesman previously said in a prepared statement that also did not directly name the actor.

“It is alleged a man assaulted another man (Victim 1) in 2008 in Lambeth. On Friday, November 17 a further allegation was made about the same man.

“The allegations are of sexual assaults against a man (Victim 2) in 2005 in Lambeth. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating.”

In addition to the Scotland Yard investigations, an internal investigation by the Old Vic theater — of which Spacey was artistic director from 2004-15 — previously revealed that 20 separate individuals had accused Spacey of inappropriate behavior toward them. However, it’s not known if this new investigation relates to one of these complaints or is entirely separate.

Spacey checked into a specialist treatment facility following the numerous allegations of sexual assault that have been made against him.

His team has not responded to any of the accusations ever since he expressed regret for allegedly making inappropriate sexual advances toward actor Anthony Rapp, then 14 years old, in 1986.

Spacey issued a statement saying he doesn’t remember the alleged incident, apologizing for “for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior” and announcing, “I choose now to live as a gay man.”

Catelynn Baltierra is headed back to rehab.

The Teen Mom OG star broke the news on Twitter Wednesday, writing, “Well they say third times a charm… I’m going back to treatment people for 6 weeks to work on my trauma and getting on different meds. THANK YOU @TylerBaltierra I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! You are my light!! And nova you are my sunshine #KeepTalkingMH.”

In response to questions from fans on Twitter, the mother of two said her decision to go back to rehab stemmed from “childhood trauma.”

Catelynn, 25, previously checked into rehab in mid-November 2017 after revealing she was having suicidal thoughts. She and her husband, Tyler, 26, have been through their fair share of difficult times throughout their more than decade-long relationship.

During the MTV show 16 and Pregnant, Catelynn struggled with her mother’s substance abuse issues and constantly argued with her. That, combined with Tyler’s father’s substance abuse issues, led to the couple’s decision to place their first-born daughter, Carly, for adoption.

 

They have been married since August 2015 and are parents to their second daughter, Novalee Reign, 3.

In March 2016, the reality star entered a treatment facility in Arizona for postpartum depression and anxiety following the birth of Novalee.

“I’m seeking help for myself and my family,” she told MTV News, stressing that her treatment will focus on mental health issues and not drug use. “Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.”

Speaking with PEOPLE in April 2017, Baltierra opened up about her battle with mental health.

“I’m doing very well. Two years out, you know, since birth, so I’m doing — I actually feel really good, I do. I had a panic attack this morning, but I worked through it. It’s just knowing the things that you have to do to work through it. But yeah, I’m doing way better,” she shared.

Kim Kardashian West previously revealed that her daughter North got jealous of her little brother Saint when he first arrived into the family.

And following the arrival of their baby girl via surrogate on Monday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 37, and husband Kanye West, 40, are making sure both North, 4½, and Saint, 2, get some additional love.

“Kim wants to make sure North and Saint have a lot of extra attention and feel included as well. It’s a big deal for everyone to have a newborn in the family,” a source close to the new parents tells PEOPLE.

Adding, “Kim and Kanye are at home with the baby. They are so happy. They have had some visitors, but mostly Kris and Kourtney are helping out.”

Kardashian West revealed there has been a mini-rivalry between her kids, even before the baby girl’s arrival.

“I don’t know if it’s because she’s the older sister. I don’t know what it is. I thought it was a phase. She does not like her brother and it’s so hard for me,” she said in August while guest hosting with Ryan Seacrest with Live with Kelly & Ryan.

“She would get so jealous when I would breastfeed and all that kind of stuff. And now, the phase isn’t going away,” the mother of two shared.

Couple months before, in June, Kardashian West gifted her eldest child a puppy, named Sushi, with hopes that caring for the pooch would teach North about responsibility.

“North has been asking for a puppy for a long time,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “Kim thought it was a good idea for North to take care of a puppy. It could prepare her for a baby sibling too.”

As The Wests have expanded into a family of five, they have yet to make a final decision on the newborn’s name.

“They still don’t have a name,” an insider previously told PEOPLE. “They’ve been thinking about it for months and they want to make sure it’s right.”

On Wednesday, the father of three confirmed they are still trying to settle on a name when he was photographed arriving to work in Los Angeles.

“Can’t think of a name!” West told photographers, prompting one of them to suggest Donda after his late mother. The new dad of three, who was all smiles as he made his way into the office, laughed and responded, “Oh, that’s fire.”
