Hollywood legend Kevin Spacey has been accused of being a lying "weirdo" - by his own brother.

RANDY FOWLER - a $180 (GBP100)-a-night Rod Stewart impersonator and drummer - is planning to expose his OSCAR winning brother's secrets in a new biography, which he hopes will relaunch his own musical career.

Fowler boasts he's been sitting on information about his brother for 25 years and has written a 90,000-word book which he plans to show American publishers in the next few weeks.

He says, "I will reveal once and for all why Kevin is like this - he's a bit of a weirdo."

Referring to Spacey's recent supposed mugging in London earlier this month (APR04), he adds, "He was supposedly mugged in the park at 4.30 in the morning. It sounded pretty insane to me.

"All I can say is what happened in London is consistent with his behaviour, with the reality of who he is and where he is from.

"He has made an art out of keeping his life a secret. his private life is very different to his public life - I find that very sad.

"I'm looking for 15 minutes of fame and this book will give me that. I have never in the past used his name for my own career but hopefully this will help me get back on tour."

Fowler's wife TRISH mysteriously adds, "Every thing that Kevin has ever said in an interview is a lie. Everything he said that happened to him actually happened to Randy."
