High-powered civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday with two women who shared their stories about allegedly having been raped and sexual assaulted by actor Steven Seagal, after coming forward with their accusations in a piece for The Wrap earlier this year. Previously, Bloom previously represented Bill O’Reilly’s accusers and more recently, Scott Baio’s Charles in Charge costars Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky. Bloom also resigned as advisor for Harvey Weinstein not long after the sexual misconduct allegations went public.

During the press conference, actress Regina Simons alleged that Seagal had raped her when she was just 18-years-old on the set of the 1994 action film On Deadly Ground. She said that she had been lured to the actor’s house under the guise of a wrap party, but when she showed up quickly realized that was not the case:

“He closed the door and approached me from behind he started kissing my neck and taking off my clothes. I was in shock,” Simons said. “I was completely caught off guard. Seagal was more than twice my size and twice my age. I was not sexually active nor had I ever been naked in front of a man before.

“There was nothing consensual about this. I couldn’t move and I felt as if I was watching my body from above..I felt tears coming down my face,” Simons said. “Seagal finally finished, and I dressed as fast as I possibly could. He put his hand on the door and asked me if I needed any money. I said no and ran for the door.”
