Two women have accused actor, Steven Seagal, of rape and sexual assault. Regina Simons and Faviola Dadis detailed their alleged encounters with Seagal at a press conference alongside their attorney, Lisa Bloom. The women have also filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Regina Simons claimed to have been raped by the actor when she was in her late teens and Seagal was 65. The incident reportedly occurred after filming On Deadly Ground when Seagal invited Simons to his home for a wrap party. Upon her arrival, she noticed that nobody was at the actor’s house with Seagal reassuring her that the guests had all left. According to her, the actor then took her hand and pulled her to a bedroom.
“He closed the door and approached me from behind and started kissing my neck and taking off my clothes. I was in shock… there was nothing consensual about this” Simons said.
The woman said that she wasn’t sexually active at that time nor was she ever naked in front of a man.
Simons said that she focused on a framed photo of Kelly LeBrock, to whom Seagal was married from 1987 to 1996 until the alleged assault was over. The woman claims that the actor asked her if she wanted any money after the assault to which she declined. Seagal allegedly tried to contact Simons several times after the incident. She rejected all of his attempts.
For Faviola Dadis, her alleged incident occurred in 2002 when she was 17 years old. The former model said that she suppressed her memories of the assault until her psychologist helped her go through them.
According to Dadis, she met Steven Seagal through a music producer on a project she was working on when the actor was casting for Genghis Khan. Dadis said that their initial relationship was friendly and their meetings always occurred in public spaces surrounded by staff and assistants.
The woman claims that Seagal at one point invited her to a private audition in a hotel room at the W Hotel in Beverly Hills. It was here when the actor allegedly told her that he wanted to practice a love scene with Dadis. The former model said that Seagal pinched her nipples and groped her vaginal area, prompting her to leave the room.
Dadis claims that she was blocked by Seagal’s bodyguard and only moved when the actor told him to do so. The woman claims that the actor attempted to reach out to her after the audition but she severed any ties with him after the incident.
As for Steven Seagal, the actor told Infowars that women have “lied and been paid to lie about me without any evidence, any proof, any witnesses.”
