His spokesman told Norway’s NTB agency that Behn had taken his own life. In a statement, Norway’s king and queen said he had been “an important part of our family for many years and we carry warm and good memories of him with us”.
Ari manager said. Geir Hakonsund in an e-mail to AFP said: “It is with great sadness in our hearts that I on behalf of the very closest relatives of Ari Behn must announce that he took his own life today.”
Moreover, Ari was in the media headline after he accused Spacey, in December 2017 of groping him under a table at a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize concert. Spacey never responded to the allegation. An unnamed massage therapist who sued the actor for allegedly sexually assaulting him during a session in 2016 died in September.
Behn was a widely celebrated author, who had published his first-ever book back in 1999. The said book was a collection of short stories whose English translation is “Sad as hell”.
Apart from the above-mentioned books, Behn had also published a book titled Inferno, wherein he bared his heart and soul about his struggle with mental health issues. His books have been translated into Swedish, Danish, German, Hungarian, and Icelandic as well as French. In the spring of 2011, Ari Behn made his debut as a playwright with Treningstimen, directed by Kim Sørensen and staged at Rogaland Teater.
In December 2017, Behn alleged that he was among a growing number of men who had been sexually assaulted by Kevin Spacey. He accused Spacey of groping his genitals in 2007, at a nightclub during the afterparty for the Nobel Peace Prize concert.
Earlier, he made the headlines of Norwegian newspapers in the autumn of 2006, when he revealed that he voted for the Norwegian Labour Party.
