“The shocker here for me was that he HAS female fans?!?” the 39-year-old said in 2019 about a Daily Beast article which cited a Playboy interview where Middleditch said that “swinging” saved his marriage with Mollie Gates, who filed for divorce last year.

‘SILICON VALLEY’ STAR THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH SAYS SWINGER LIFESTYLE WITH WIFE MOLLIE GATES ‘SAVED’ THEIR MARRIAGE

“Only after I got married was I like, ‘Mollie, I’m sorry, but we have to get nontraditional here,’” he told Playboy. “Personally, [fame] is one of the trickier elements of it all, because Mollie doesn’t get that and yet she has to witness it. I’m like, ‘Come on, what about this chick who’s obviously really into me?’ And Mollie will say, ‘Yeah, she’s into you. Where do I fit in?’”

Then the Los Angeles Times released an exposé over the weekend which detailed alleged sexual misconduct at the since-closed members-only goth club Cloak & Dagger in Los Angeles, Calif.

Hannah Harding told The Times that Middleditch made “lewd sexual overtures” to her and a friend in the club in 2019. Harding was 21 at the time and said that he groped her on the dance floor in front of staff and she was “dismissed” when she complained to club management. She said that she then saw him group other women after her.

Wetterlund described her time on Silicon Valley as “kind of a nightmare.” “Pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism,” she said in 2018 amid allegations against costar T.J. Miller and added that they can “f**k off forever.”

“Speaking as a guy, as a man, as a male human, it’s kind of scary, with this fervor that’s surrounding it, where an allegation can just pop up and then it’s really incumbent upon you to fervently defend your character. I’m not gonna dive into what’s real or not. I’m just saying it’s a little bit scary,” Middleditch told the A.V. Club in 2018 about the #MeToo movement and the allegations against Miller.
