LAPD investigating Steven Seagal over sexual assault claims

LAPD investigating Steven Seagal over sexual assault claims

Police in Los Angeles opened an investigation into an alleged sexual assault by action star Steven Seagal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Actors Portia de Rossi, Julianna Margulies and Rae Dawn Chong all claimed that Seagal had behaved inappropriately at so-called "auditions" in his hotel room or office.

The news of LAPD investigation also comes after the Wrap reported on Thursday that two more women had made allegations against Seagal, including Regina Simons, who claims the actor raped her in 1993 while they were both working on the film On Deadly Ground.

Her story follows more than a dozen accusations of sexual assault facing Seagal. She said she first met him a few weeks earlier at an open casting call for On Deadly Ground. "Even now, my 43-year-old mind knows how to process this and understand what a loving relationship is and what consensual sex is".

Simons claimed that Seagal, now 65, invited her to what he said was a wrap party for the film, but that when she arrived, she was the only other person there.

She said he rubbed her hand and neck, which seemed an odd thing to do. Following that he reportedly bought her into another room and raped her. Simons says she was only 19 at the time. McCarthy recalled him saying, "You know, this part has nudity in it, and I can't really tell what your body looks like in that dress you're wearing'".

The now-mother of two said she was "completely caught off guard" when the actor, who she said was three times her size, allegedly forced himself on her.

She tells TheWrap after filming Steven invited her to the wrap party at his house. "I shook my head and ran towards my vehicle". The woman with whom she lived has also said that she remembers Seagal's calls. "I cried the whole way home". "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".

"Steven asked if I would take off my clothes and walk for him in my bikini", she wrote.

She has filed a police report with police officials.
