Seagal denies allegations

Steven Seagal is "vehemently denying" new sexual misconduct allegations that have been lodged against him.

Actress Rachel Grant claims she flew to Sofia, Bulgaria in 2002 to practice lines for 2003 film Out For A Kill and met with Seagal and director Michael Oblowitz in the actor's hotel room. She alleges Seagal asked her to remove her top several times after the director left.

"I stood up to try to distract him," she tells BBC.com. "But he was able to tug down my top, which was strapless. My breasts were completely exposed and I was forced to cover myself."

She also claims Seagal attempted to expose himself to her.

"He pushed me on to the bed with force," she continues. "Then he said, 'I suppose you want to see my (penis). I was looking up and he started to pull down his zip."

The actress reportedly "burst into tears," which prompted Seagal to stop and apologize.

"It was horrible. I was upset, embarrassed and hurt," she says. "What actress should be brought to someone's bedroom on the first meeting and then be told to take their top off?"

Seagal's lawyers have now responded to Grant's claims, insisting they are false.

"Our client denies having such contact with Ms. Grant and further vehemently denies any alleged assault at all, in particular, the alleged assault occurring in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 2002," a statement reads.

Actresses Portia De Rossi, Jenny McCarthy, and Julianna Margulies have also made allegations of sexual misconduct against Seagal.

And last week, Regina Simons, now 43, claimed he raped her when she was 18 and working as an extra on the set of his 1994 film On Deadly Ground. She has filed a report with police officials in Los Angeles, who are investigating the claims.
