LAPD investigating Steven Seagal over sexual assault claims

LAPD investigating Steven Seagal over sexual assault claims

Seagal has been accused of misconduct by actors like Rae Dawn Chong, Juliana Margulies, and Portia De Rossi, who said the actor unzipped his trousers in front of her. "Unfazed, she replied, "well, I didn't know if he was your type". "Even now, my 43-year-old mind knows how to process this and understand what a loving relationship is and what consensual sex is".

Seagal has denied numerous sexual misconduct claims made against him, but has not commented on the latest accusations. He invited them into his trailer, and when Simons complained of a headache, he gave her a massage.

Simons quit her plans to go into acting, and moved back to her home in Utah, but now lives in Los Angeles working as a case advocate for Native American familes.

Simons alleged Segal invited her to a wrap party at his home, but arrived to find he was the only one there. "I think because of the situation I was completely caught off guard". Tears were coming down my face and I know that it hurt.

Simons, a Mormon, also said that after confiding in a bishop, she decided not to come forward at the time due to the stigma that would be attached to the incident in the Mormon community - but had reported it to the police a month ago.

In November, Dutch model Faviola Dadis, shared a post on Instagram claiming that Seagal sexually assaulted her during an audition in 2002.

"All I remember is him asking me if I needed any money", she said. "I was like, 'Oh my God, how could this have happened?' So, I blamed a lot of it on myself and tried to pretend it didn't happen". Actress Rae Dawn Chong also revealed that she was called to a private audition with Seagal at the Bel Air Hotel in the 1980s, where he also answered the door in his bathrobe.

She grabbed her clothes and ran as Seagal asked her if she needed any money: "I shook my head and ran towards my vehicle. I cried the whole way home".

The actress said she left quickly after he asked her if he could touch her silk shirt.

Simons and Dadis told The Wrap they each filed police reports with the LAPD about their respective allegations against Seagal.
