Kevin Spacey cost Netflix a ton of money due to his alleged sexual assault scandal. Now those people behind Netflix’s House of Cards who lost so much cash will seek to get theirs back by going to their former star.

TMZ reports that Spacey will have to pay millions to MRC II and Knight Takes King Productions, a distribution company and production company behind House of Cards. Those two companies claim that they were doing the heavy financial lifting on House of Cards, especially the 6th season that Spacey was a huge part of.

The companies are asking the court to confirm an arbitration award of $31 million from Kevin Spacey. The majority of that award is compensatory damages, more than $29.5 million.

A rep for MRC tells TMZ that, “The safety of our employees, sets and work environments is of paramount importance to MRC and why we set out to push for accountability. We thank Michael Kump and Gregory Korn of Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump Holley LLP for their commitment and hard work in this case.”

Kump also commented to say, “It was a privilege representing MRC in this matter. MRC stood its ground, pursued this case doggedly, and obtained the right result in the end.”

An arbitrator ruled last year that MRC and Knight were harmed by Spacey’s actions. Now they are waiting for a dollar amount to be granted by a judge. Keep checking back with Thirsty as we continue covering this ongoing story.
