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

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

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.

A woman has said Steven Seagal sexually assaulted her at a supposed casting session at a Beverly Hills room when she was a 17-year-old model and aspiring actress.

Dadis has left the entertainment industry since then, and as a Ph.D. candidate in her home country of the Netherlands, it's costing her time and money to now travel to L.A.to speak out against Seagal, she said. At the time, Simons was an extra during the filming of On Deadly Ground.

"I was in shock". He allegedly told her that the other guests had all left.

Once the ordeal was over, Simons said, Seagal offered her money but she rejected it as she rushed out the door.

Seagal had told her to wear a bikini or bra and panties under her clothes, and had her walk around the room in the bikini before saying he wanted to test their chemistry together and started touching her, Dadis said. I felt uncomfortable because I was in my bikini and I expressed this.

Following their encounter, Simons said the Under Siege star made several attempts to reach out to her, but she refused to communicate with him. Regina claims Seagal invited her to his home about 25 years ago under the impression there would be a wrap party.

Simons said it was a life-changing moment for her and insisted that she has chose to speak publicly about it not for the sake of money or fame, but in hopes of healing from the trauma.

Actress Jenny McCarthy has also said Seagal sexually harassed her at an audition in 1995. And he said, "they don't seem to mind", and then I said: "Mom!"'

Dadis said Seagal's assistant took her up to the hotel room to meet him in the evening, but inside the elevator going up, the assistant kept saying "Steve's word is as good as gold".

'And I said isn't that illegal? "However, instead of respecting my boundaries, Steven slipped his hand underneath my bikini top and began pinching my nipples".

Despite Dadis appearing "noticeably upset and terrified by the experience", she said, Seagal sat calmly "as if nothing had happened".

When Dadis gathered her things and tried to leave, she claims that Seagal didn't react and that his bodyguard blocked the doorway and only moved when Seagal told him to do so.

'I'm thankful for the #MeToo movement, the Silence Breakers, Times Up and the many courageous people who came before me who said they would be silent no more, ' she said.

It is not clear whether or not prosecutors are looking into the case involving Simons. "So many women like myself live in fear of what people might say about them, and what might happen as a result of reporting sexual assault".

But she said she was inspired to come forward in light of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment in Hollywood.
