Regina Simons recounted the incident which she'd previously recalled in an interview with The Wrap in January. He was working on a film about Ghengis Khan and casting for it when he told Dadis she should try out. "I was in shock", Simons said.

"Seagal was more than twice my size, and twice my age", Simons said. "I was not sexually active".

"I have suffered from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress, have found it hard to form trusting relationships with men", Dadis said through tears as she read from a written statement. She says he took her into a bedroom, kissed her neck and then proceeded to rape her.

"The next day Seagal called my residence and asked to speak with me".

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.

"This completely changed the trajectory of my life", Simons said, saying the experience left her feeling "traumatized and depressed" as she has struggled to form healthy relationships and developed migraines from the stress. I did not come forward with my story for money, nor have I ever been paid a dime.

"I cried the entire way home", she said. "To anyone listening who may be wondering if they should come forward, know that they are not alone".

Faviola said that when she was 17, she met Seagal at the W Hotel for an audition.


Standing alongside their attorney Lisa Bloom, Regina Simons and Faviola Dadis explained how Seagal allegedly assaulted them years ago. Bloom says she hasn't spoken to Seagal.

Simons is one of about a dozen women who have accused Seagal of sexual misconduct, among them actresses Portia de Rossi, Julianna Margulis and Jenny McCarthy.

Simons (left) claimed Seagal raped her in 1993, when she was aged 18, during a movie wrap party. He did not respond to Inside Edition's requests for comment on the latest accusers. She claimed that he then pinched her nipples and groped her vaginal area, leading her to tell him, "This audition is over".

She said the security guard was standing, blocking the doorway, and "only moved when Steven motioned for him to do so".

"Steven attempted to reach out after the audition, but I did not take any of his phone calls".

Additionally, Seagal called hurled insults at female reporters in October, 2017, calling them "f***ing dirty w****s", going on to refer to one as "just some dumb c***", as previously reported by CrimeOnline.

Dadis also claimed that Seagal's assistant kept telling her, "Steven's word is as good as gold", which she said she later interpreted as meaning if she slept with him, she would get a role. Portia de Rossi also came forward and claimed Seagal put her on a casting couch and unzipped his leather trousers.
