Ex-Baywatch star Nicole Eggert claims Scott Baio molested her repeatedly

Ex-Baywatch star Nicole Eggert claims Scott Baio molested her repeatedly

Actress Nicole Eggert, 46, has accused actor Scott Baio, 57, of having "molested" her for years when she was between the ages of 14 and 17.

Actor Scott Baio stronly denied in a Facebook Live video accusations that he sexually assaulted his former co-star Nicole Eggert.

The tell-all vid continues when Scott also reveals that Nicole was given two cease and desist letters back in November 2017 when she started posting accusations on her social media accounts and said his legal team informed her that if she had a sexual misconduct claim, she should go to the police instead of posting on social media.

"I'm here today to talk about some allegations that have been made against me that aren't true by somebody named Nicole Eggert", Baio said in the video.

She also responded to another fan who asked why she didn't report this to the police, with the actress responding that she did. "Creep", she said about her "Charles in Charge" co-star.

'I remember her calling me and asking me to come over and coming in my house one time, and seducing me, ' Baio says in the video. "Any normal heterosexual, red-blooded American guy, the outcome would have been the same". She added, "It started when I was 14".

He told his followers: "If you have a real claim you go to the real people, not social media, where people like me get beat up". "The evidence it contains proves beyond doubt that she initiated our one and only sexual contact and that it was well after she turned 18".

Baio's lawyers cite Eggert's interview with in the newly released letters, which were sent earlier this month in an apparently successful effort to convince the "Dr. Oz" show to drop her as a guest.

The Joanie Loves Chaci actor said until a few years ago he and Eggert were good friends.

"I don't know what else to put out there", Baio said. "She's my best friend in the world, then all of a sudden I'm the bogeyman", he said.

"The problem with nearly all hesaid/shesaid cases is they're hesaid/shesaid", the actor said. Now, go prove it or disprove it. "The real problem with this is people with legitimate claims aren't taken seriously - and that's too bad".

Eggert has not commented further since her initial set of Twitter posts.
