The women gave a press conference on Monday and were accompanied by their attorney, Lisa Bloom.

The woman who said that Seagal had taken her virginity is named Regina Simmons, and she said that the “Under Seige” actor had invited her to his home about 25 years ago under the guise that he was having a wrap party. Once at his home, Simmons said Seagal took her into his bedroom and raped her.

At the press conference, Simmons said that she was a virgin who had never been naked with another man before. She said that when the sex was over Seagal offered her money and that was the last time she had ever seen him.

The second accuser, Faviola Dadis, said that Seagal molested her when she was also a teenager in 2002.

Faviola said that when she was 17, she met Seagal at the W Hotel for an audition. She said that during what should have been a professional meeting, he had pinched her nipples and slid his hand under her bikini. She said that he had also touched her vagina.



Bloom said that the two women have reported the incidents of sexual assault to the LAPD. She did not say whether or not the women were filing civil lawsuits, but she said that all legal options are open.

The two women are not the only ones to claim Seagal has committed sexual misconduct. Actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy was vocal that when she auditioned for him years ago that he had been sexually inappropriate, and she said that the experience brought her to tears. Another A-list actress, Portia De Rossi, said that at an audition, Seagal had put her on a couch and unzipped his leather pants. ER and Good Wife star Julianna Margulies said that at one hotel meeting with Seagal in the 1980s, he had brandished a gun at her.

Seagal is represented by Hollywood talent agency, CAA, which some actresses have said sent them on night “auditions” with Seagal, despite his reputation.

For instance, actress Rae Dawn Chong told The Wrap last year that her former agency CAA had sent her on an “audition” to meet Seagal in his hotel room at 9:30 pm. She said that she was shocked by that meeting time and said, “I knew then that I was being pimped by the agency.”
