Apart from that, the two have also gone ahead and filed a police report highlighting the allegations. The report, according to Bloom, has been filed with Los Angeles Police Department.

Seagal, however, responded to the allegations to InfoWars by saying that they were lying.

This is what the star had to say,

They lied and been paid to lie about me without any evidence, any proof, any witnesses.

He also told host Alex Jones :

This is just a complete tragedy. This isn’t just me but hundreds of people around the world, many of those people are completely innocent.

The actor’s representatives are yet to give their response to the incident.

Simons said during a press conference that she and Seagal met for the first time when she was still a teenager and working as a cast member in the 1994 film On Deadly Ground. According to her version of the incident, when she was invited to the wrap party at his home, nobody was there.

Steven then took her to what appeared to be his bedroom, closed the door, and started kissing her and removing her clothes.

Simons said about the incident,

I was in shock and I was completely caught off guard. Seagal was more than twice my size and twice my age. I was not sexually active. I froze.

She then revealed that Segal then proceeded to rape her,

There was nothing consensual about this. I couldn’t move. And I felt as if I was watching my body from above. I felt tears coming down my face.

She also alleged that Seagal asked her if she needed any money after the incident, to which she replied no and ran out of the house.

Dadis, the other victim who worked as a model, said she met Seagal when the latter was working on a movie project on Genghis Khan in 2002. She said that she was 17 years old at the time.

According to Dadis, Seagal invited her to a private audition at the W Hotel asking her to wear a bikini under her clothes so that the actor could ensure she was right for a role.

However, the model was surprised that the only people in the hotel were Seagal and his bodyguard. Seagal then asked her to do a catwalk in her bikini after which he proceeded to sexually assault her.

Dadis said:

However, instead of respecting my boundaries, Steven slipped his hand underneath my bikini top and began pinching my nipples and simultaneously slid his hand across my vaginal area.

She also added that his bodyguard stood in front of the door, blocking her way out.

Dadis added,

I left feeling horrified and totally violated.

Both Dadis and Simons have claimed that they do not want money or fame in return of the allegations.

This is not the first time Seagal has been accused of sexual assault. Australian-American actress Portia De Rossi had earlier accused the actor of sexual abuse.?? 

According to their attorney, Bloom:

I am representing them pro bono because I believe in them. And neither of them has asked him for a dime. Listen carefully, Mr. Seagal, some things are more important than money.

Bloom further said that they are yet to file a lawsuit, though the women have already filed police reports.

Bloom added,

We will see this through to the end. Steven Seagal may be a big action star, but it is Faviola and Regina who are taking action now.
