Regina Simons told The Wrap she was 18 when Seagal invited her to a party at his home in Beverly Hills. But when she arrived, she said, no one else was there but Seagal.
“He took me into this room and then just closed the door and started kissing me,” she told The Wrap. “He then took my clothes off and before I knew it he was on top of me, raping me. … I wasn’t sexually active yet. People always talk about fight-or-flight. But no one talks about the freeze.”
Simons told her Mormon bishop at the time about the incident, but she ultimately decided against seeking charges against Seagal.

Actress Portia de Rossi tweeted in November that Seagal exposed himself to her during an audition for one of his movies.
My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I️ ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”
