We’ve heard multiple allegations of sexual harassment and predatory behavior about Steven Seagal. Now a woman has come forward with an accusation of rape.
Regina Simons, the part Navajo, part Sioux teen, was a hired as an extra on On Deadly Ground after going to the open call for the 1994 action film taking place on Native land in Alaska.
She tells TheWrap after filming Steven invited her to the wrap party at his house. But when she showed up, it was just the two of them:
“I asked him where is everyone and he said that they had already left.”
It was a trap. Just like we’ve heard so many times with Harvey Weinstein. These people are sick.
We warn you what comes next in Simons’ story is worse:
“He took me into this room and then just closed the door and started kissing me. He then took my clothes off and before I knew it he was on top of me, raping me.”
What Seagal didn’t know, what he didn’t care to ask, was that Simons, who was only 18 years old at the time, was a virgin:
“I wasn’t sexually active yet. People always talk about fight-or-flight. But no one talks about the freeze… The only way I’m able to describe it is I literally felt like I left my body. I think because of the situation I was completely caught off guard. Tears were coming down my face and I know that it hurt. He was three times my size.”
After it was over, Simons says she grabbed her clothes and made a “beeline” to the door:
“All I remember is him asking me if I needed any money. I shook my head and ran towards my car. I cried the whole way home.”
A devout Mormon, Simons told only a bishop, who has now corroborated this account.
Simons, now a 43-year-old mom, is no longer hiding. She has filed a police report with the LAPD — who confirmed they are investigating another case as well.
