"Faviola Dadis said at a news conference Monday that she had recently moved to the US from the Netherlands when she was invited to a Beverly Hills hotel room to audition for Seagal for a film he planned to make about Genghis Khan", the AP reports.

During the press conference, Simons said that Seagal raped her after inviting her to his house, claiming he was throwing a wrap party.

She said Seagal set up the meeting as a supposed audition and that his assistant instructed her to arrive wearing something like a bikini under her clothing. He led her to a bedroom under the pretext of showing her something, then, she says, he raped her. Seagal was more than twice my size and more than twice my age. "I was not sexually active". I felt as if I had left my body and was watching from above.

"This completely changed the trajectory for my life ..." They've reported the incidents to LAPD. "I'm thankful for the #MeToo movement, the Silence Breakers, Times Up and the many courageous people who came before me who said they would be silent no more".

Seagal has denied allegations of sexual misconduct, which have been made in recent months by actresses Jenny McCarthy and Portia de Rossi.

At Monday's news conference, reporters also got to hear from former model Faviola Dadis, who said that in 2002, when she was 17 years old, she was sexually assaulted by Seagal, whom she said she had grown up admiring. In Nov. 2017, Arrested Development star Portia De Rossi accused the actor of unzipping his trousers during an audition, as previously reported by CrimeOnline. After several phone calls and text messages, Seagal invited Dadis to a hotel room in Beverly Hills for the late-night casting session for a film he planned to make about Genghis Khan, Dadis said.

"I quickly yelled that this audition is over, and I began gathering my things", she continued. She said the role did not include any on-screen nudity.

She went on to say that it took her years to conquer her fear and come forward to the Los Angeles police about the alleged assault.

Seagal then asked her to follow him to another room so he could show her something, she said, before taking her inside the room.

Time's Up praises investigation into attorney general over Weinstein
The Manhattan DA's office says a criminal investigation into Weinstein is active and ongoing. Weinstein's attorneys have said he denies any non-consensual sexual contact.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said they are looking into allegations against the actor, according to CBS contributors.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to USA TODAY in January that Seagal is being investigated following Simons' and Dadis' allegations of rape and assault.

Jenny McCarthy said the action star sexually harassed her during a 1995 audition, while Portia de Rossi accused Seagal of unzipping his trousers during an audition.

Because she felt uncomfortable, the Dutch model tried to speak up only to excite the actor more, causing him to slip his hand underneath her bra.

Faviola Dadis also recounted her own alleged assault. She claimed that he then pinched her nipples and groped her vaginal area, leading her to tell him, "This audition is over".

For instance, actress Rae Dawn Chong told The Wrap past year that her former agency CAA had sent her on an "audition" to meet Seagal in his hotel room at 9:30 pm.

It is well known that Steven Seagal does not share the political views of the mainstream in Hollywood. She said that he was twice her age at the time, and she had not had a sexual encounter with a man before that experience.

"Steven approached me and said he would like to act out a romantic scene".
