An aspiring actress of the 90’s, Regina Simons has claimed Steven Seagal raped her at a wrap-up party for the film “On Deadly Ground,” saying that he undressed her and assaulted her on his bed.
Regina Simons called the alleged assault “very predatory, very aggressive and traumatizing” during an interview that aired Friday on NBC’s “Megyn Kelly Today.” She was 18 when this happened. Seagal’s lawyer did not immediately answer calls for comment.
Simons said she was surprised to find that she was the only one invited to Seagal’s 1993 party to celebrate the end of filming. She had been an extra in the movie. She said “before I knew it, he was on top of me and I couldn’t move.” She says she froze and “felt like I left my body.”
During the alleged attack, Simons said she remembers looking at a photo of Seagal and “the lady from ‘Weird Science.’” At the time, Seagal was married to Kelly LeBrock, who starred in “Weird Science.”
Simon said she reported her allegations to Beverly Hills, California police, where the incident occurred.
Other women have accused Seagal of sexual misconduct. Jenny McCarthy said the action star sexually harassed her during a 1995 audition, while Portia de Rossi accused Seagal of unzipping her pants during an audition.
A Seagal spokesman denied McCarthy’s accusations to The Daily Beast. McCarthy told the same story to Movieline in 1998.
