Steven Seagal Accused of Sexual Assault by 2 More Women

Steven Seagal Accused of Sexual Assault by 2 More Women

Simons was one of two women accusing Seagal of sexual assault alongside their attorney Lisa Bloom.

Simons (left) claimed Seagal raped her in 1993, when she was aged 18, during a movie wrap party. She says he took her into a bedroom, kissed her neck and then raped her.

"Seagal was more than twice my size, and twice my age", Simons said. "I was not sexually active". "I do not want fame", she said.

"I felt uncomfortable because I was in my bikini, and I shyly expressed this", Dadis said. I felt tears coming down my face, and I looked away from his face'.

At the press conference, Simmons said that she was a virgin who had never been naked with another man before. "I froze", she continued.

"Steven sat there calmly as if nothing had happened while I was noticeably upset and terrified by the experience", she said.

"I had grown up admiring him", she said, describing how the two developed a friendship prior to her private audition at a hotel room for role in Seagal's planned Genghis Khan movie.

Their lawyer, Lisa Bloom, then ended the conference by saying that she is taking on their case pro bono and called upon others who may have been victimized by the actor to come forward and speak up.

Simons and Dadis are among several women who have accused Seagal of sexual assault over the years, including Jenny McCarthy, Portia de Rossi and Rae Dawn Chong.

The second accuser, Faviola Dadis, said that Seagal molested her when she was also a teenager in 2002.

Dadis said she was inspired by the recent wave of reports of sexual misconduct by men in the entertainment industry, and was spurred to come forward especially by actress Portia de Rossi saying Seagal once unzipped his trousers during an audition with her. ER and Good Wife star Julianna Margulies said that at one hotel meeting with Seagal in the 1980s, he had brandished a gun at her.

In the past couple of days, Wolff said Hamilton may be tempted by a move to Ferrari. Hamilton said: "I do not want to retire soon or prematurely".

Seagal approached her suggesting they act out a "romantic scene" to test their chemistry.

She went on to say that it took her years to conquer her fear and come forward to the Los Angeles police about the alleged assault.

Seagal then asked her to follow him to another room so he could show her something, she said, before taking her inside the room.

"He invited me in, and immediately I asked him, 'Where is everyone else?'" she said.

Prosecutors with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office last month said they were looking into sexual assault allegations against the "Hard To Kill" actor.

Seagal issued no statements in response to the details that were revealed during Monday's press conference, but he has previously denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him. She went on to reveal the repercussions of Seagal's actions to her physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

For instance, actress Rae Dawn Chong told The Wrap previous year that her former agency CAA had sent her on an "audition" to meet Seagal in his hotel room at 9:30 pm.

Blair Robinson, the granddaughter of legendary singer Ray Charles, claims she was hired as the actor's assistant in 2004 and was told giving Seagal massages were part of the job.

"I was completely caught off guard", Simons, who was just 17 years old at the time, said.

"It thought that I should have known better for going to an audition late at night", Dadis said.
