There were allegations by Portia de Rossi who tweeted of the time Steven Seagal sexually harassed her in his office after he told her “how important it was to have chemistry off-screen.”
New reports now say that 11 women have come forward with allegations against the actor and the LAPD are now investigating an alleged incident that occurred in 2005, Variety reports.
Regina Simons told The Wrap of the time Steve raped her when she was just 18-years-old, after being an extra in his 1994 film On Deadly Ground. Regina told the publication that Steven invited her a party for the film, but when she arrived at his Beverly Hills home, it was just the two of them.
“He took me into this room and then just closed the door and started kissing me,” Simons explained. “He then took my clothes off, and before I knew it he was on top of me, raping me… I wasn’t sexually active yet. People always talk about fight-or-flight. But no one talks about the freeze.”
She explained how she was crying when Steven was on top of her, adding: “Even now, my 43-year-old mind knows how to process this and understand what a loving relationship is and what consensual sex is. And there was none of that.”
Regina’s report with the LAPD follows behind actress Faviola Dadis who filed a report saying Steven groped her in a 2002 audition. Other women to come forward with disturbing stories against Steven include Julianna Margulies, Katherine Heigl, Jenny McCarthy, Rae Dawn Chong, and Lisa Guerrero.
