Two women came forward to accuse Steven Seagal of sexual assault and one of the women claims he raped her when she was in her late teens and took her virginity.
Regina Simons was flanked by her attorney, Lisa Bloom, at a news conference on Monday when she claimed the actor invited her to his home 25 years ago for what he called a “wrap party” for the movie “On Deadly Ground.”
She claims no one else was there, and Seagal took her into a bedroom, kissed her neck and then raped her. Regina added she’d never been naked in front of another man before Seagal assaulted her. She also claims that after raping her, Seagal offered her money.
The second accuser, Faviola Dadis, accused Seagal of sexually assaulting her when she was also a teenager. She was a 17-year-old model and aspiring actress when Steven Seagal sexually assaulted her at a supposed casting session at a Beverly Hills hotel room in 2002. She claims Seagal pinched her nipples, slid his hand under her bikini and touched her vagina during the audition.
This is not the first time Seagal is being accused of sexual misconduct. Portia de Rossi earlier claimed Seagal put her on a casting couch and unzipped his leather pants. Julianna Margulies claims she had a hotel room meeting with Seagal in the ’80s, and he brandished a gun, but didn’t touch her before she fled.
This is the first time Regina and Faviola will speak about the alleged encounters with Seagal. Attorney Bloom wouldn’t say if they’ll sue Seagal, but all legal options remain open. She added, she nor Regina and Faviola, have spoken to Seagal, but they’ve reported the incidents to LAPD.
