Actress accuses film star Steven Seagal of raping her when she was 18 in 1993

NEW YORK (AP) --- A once-aspiring actress has alleged Steven Seagal raped her at a wrap party for the film "On Deadly Ground," claiming he undressed her and assaulted her on his bed while she focused on a photo of Seagal's wife on the nightstand.

Black for cumulative mourning over past, unaddressed excesses; for firm, no-nonsense resolve to finally put a stop to the power-tripping and sexual exploitation that have claimed many victims for decades---and as a grim and "deadly" warning for predators to stop. Now. The no-nonsense tone was set early on by the very first award, for best TV actress Nicole Kidman's portrayal of a victim of domestic violence in the series, "Big Little Lies." To further underscore the pointed focus, reference and preference, the show itself won for bes...Keep on reading: The night Hollywood wore black.....»»
