Steven Seagal Still Under Siege for Rape Allegations, Not Above the Law

Just in case you forgot, cryptocurrency mogul and honorary Russian person Steven Seagal is accused of sexual assault by more than one person. Attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference where two of her clients, Regina Simons and Faviola Dadis, recounted being assaulted by Seagal.

Simons had previously talked about being raped by Seagal, and Dadis posted a description of her encounter with him on her Instagram.

In light of the allegations by #PortiadeRossi, I want to speak up about something I should have years ago. When I was younger I was auditioning for a movie with #StevenSeagal and was sexually assaulted by him. During all our initial interactions, there was a production assistant or casting director present along with Steven. We established a relationship via text, and bonded about similar interests like Buddhism. After 2 callbacks (during the day and always with others present), I was invited for a private audition at the W Hotel late in the evening. Steven said the audition was to see my figure. I was told to wear a bikini under my clothes, and that the PA and casting director would also be there. As this is quite standard in the modeling industry, I agreed to the audition. I was escorted to the room by Steven’s personal assistant. I assumed the PA and casting director were already in the room, but when I arrived no one was there but Steven and his security who stood blocking the door. I noted this was a bit strange, but he apologized and explained they had other obligations. Steven asked if I would take off my clothes and walk for him in my bikini. After doing so (he was on the couch and I was at a far enough distance to do a catwalk for him), he approached me and said he wanted to act out a romantic scene. I was hesitant and expressed this, then he started fondling my breasts and grabbing my crotch. I quickly yelled “This audition is over!”, and tried to run out of the room but was blocked by his security. I started making a noticeable amount of noise, and his security realized I would alert someone,and let me leave. I never reported this to anyone out of fear that someone like Steven, with such a huge amount of power, influence, and money would easily win a legal battle; and furthermore that I would damage my career. However, as others are now speaking out against Steven, I would like to do the same. This was unfortunately not the last time I experienced this type of behavior from men, and it is completely unacceptable.

Yeah, Seagal also apparently showed Portia de Rossi his junk. And he groped Katherine Heigl like, just in front of everyone. And he apparently had sex slaves or something? I mean, he has a history in the “probably being a rapist” category is what I’m saying.

Here’s what happened at the press conference, which was mostly just restating the allegations Simons and Dadis had previously made, via TMZ.

Regina Simons was flanked by her attorney, Lisa Bloom, at a news conference Monday and spoke publicly for the first time about the assault. Regina claims Seagal invited her to his home about 25 years ago under the guise there would be a wrap party. She says he took her into a bedroom, kissed her neck and then raped her.

Regina added she had never been naked in front of another man before … and when it was over, claims Seagal offered her money. She says she never spoke to him again. Faviola Dadis is the second woman accusing Seagal of sexually assaulting her when she was 17.

Faviola says the alleged assault happened in 2002 at the W Hotel … where she claims Seagal pinched her nipples, slid his hand under her bikini and touched her vagina during an audition.

Bloom wouldn’t say if they’ll sue Seagal, but all legal options remain open. Bloom says she hasn’t spoken to Seagal. They’ve reported the incidents to LAPD.

I have a feeling they’re going to sue. High-powered attorneys with their own TV shows don’t tend to take cases for free. And Bloom probably needs the money since she’s not bringing in that “covering up Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct” money anymore.
