Kevin Spacey was ordered by a judge Thursday to pay $31 million to the producers of "House of Cards" after he was fired in 2018 following alleged sexual misconduct behind the scenes of the political drama.

The 63-year-old disgraced actor, who starred on the Netflix show from 2013-17, was accused of preying on multiple young men, including a production assistant, which prompted an investigation by the MRC production company and ultimate termination of Spacey from his role in addition to any producing contracts.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recana confirmed the ruling in MRC’s favor, consisting of $29.5 million in damages and an additional $1.5 million in attorney's fees and costs, according to Deadline.
