“Additionally, LAPD presented a sex assault case yesterday involving Anthony Anderson,” the D.A.’s office added of the “Black-ish” star. “It also remains under review.”
This comes after allegations against Seagal surfaced in January, which stem from an alleged assault in 2005. Allegations against Anderson first appeared last month in which he “unequivocally disputes the claim” against him stemming from an alleged incident in 2017.
“Lastly, the Beverly Hills Police Department presented a third sex assault case involving Harvey Weinstein in June,” the Los Angeles D.A. shared. “That case, along with two others presented by BHPD [Beverly Hills Police Department] and three presented by LAPD, involving Mr. Weinstein remain under review.”
Weinstein has faced accusations from more than 80 women, which has resulted in a dozen lawsuits accusing him of sexual assault to sexual harassment allegations.
