“Bones” star being sued for sexual harassment

By  | 

“Bones” star David Boreanaz is reportedly being sued for sexual harassment by an extra from the show, Kristina Hagan. Boreanaz has already experienced claims of two other infidelity reports. Hagan claims the sexual harassment began while filming for the TV show on Aug 21, 2009.

Boreanaz and wife, Playboy Playmate Jaime Bergman, have been married since 2001 and have two children together. Boreanaz admitted earlier this year to a different affair while Bergman was pregnant. He came out with his secret to People Magazine after the woman allegedly attempted to extort him. Since then the couple has been trying to patch up their marriage.

“Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities,” he told People in May. “We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”

The suit has been filed by Gloria Allred, a high-profile attorney hired by Hagan.  Allred represented another alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel, also one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses. Hagan will also be suing Fox and the “Bones” production companies for their lack of action when she tried to complain.

“She is an actress who is working towards her goals, but who like many other actresses has not been able to achieve them. For that reason she is extremely vulnerable as many actresses are in Hollywood,” Allred said.

The suit says Boreanaz sent Hagan “sexually inappropriate text messages” along with telling her that he could further her career because he was “the boss” while driving together in a car in Sept. 2009. He then stopped the car and, “attempted to kiss her and touch her breasts but she pushed him away.” The suit also states another occurrence of harassment took place in his trailer.

“The allegations concerning any alleged inappropriate conduct by David Boreanaz are totally fabricated and absurd,” David’s rep told reporters “There is no validity to this lawsuit.”

Hagan is a married mother of two herself and a member of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federal of Television and Radio Artists.

In the suit, Hagan said Boreanaz told her that “he and his wife had argued because there were reports of his infidelity” coming out — and that he and Hagan would have to “cool it.”

    He and his rep already denied about the affairs and then he was forced to come clean. That ship has sailed and I don’t think anyone should believe what they say at this point. She’ll have her day in court and say what you want about her attorney, Glorida A. I don’t think she would take a case with no merit. Gloria certainly doen’st need the money or publicitiy. Read in another newspaper there is also a second woman who has filed a claim of sex. harr just not a lawsuit. David B. has some serious problems and wife should not be an enabler.

    I agree with you Lucy. David B. has really disappointed me. Proven himself to be a lier and would have never thought it. I like the show Bones and hope this does not impact it too much. Heard the Comic Con interviews and hear a character may die this season. Could Booth be on his way out??? Show would survive without him….Bones is the main character anyway and she’s great.

    Lucy says:

    Are you serious???? Oh my that statement of yours gave me a good laugh! She is a bigger media whore than the whores she represents!
    While I in no way condone DB’s cheating, this was obviously a mutual “relationship”. Kristina Hagan played sex games in an attempt to land acting roles, and now a year later when those acting roles are nowhere to be seen, she is crying harassment..
    Phulease!
    They had to cool it? Cool what if she was not a more than willing participant? This whole thing is nothing more than a spurned pissed off wanna be actress who tried, and failed, to sex her way into the “big time” being led by a beyond contempt s extortionist layer to get some $$$$$$.

    Ginger,
    Way to tell it like it is. It’s evident that DB is no longer a choir boy, but give me a break. GA is a lawyer and is out to get more than her share of the limelight. She’s capitalizing on DB infidelities and so is Kristina Hagan. There may be some truth to the relationship, but as Ginger says Kristina’s not innocent. Can’t make it as an actress so trying to get it through a lawsuit. And what woman in her right mind would put her kids through this for money…

    Sorry Jamie is getting caught in the middle, but she told David to “tell all” in People. She couldn’t have been so naive as to think that the money mongers wouldn’t come out of the woodwork. Really hope it works out for the family and DB gets some help.

    I’m not making excuses for DB, he’s paying dearly for his mistakes, but this particular lawsuit seems kinda fishy to me. First of all, this girl alleges that she was only interested in a job from him, so then why did she agree to go for a ride in his car or meet him in his trailer? Usually when people attend business meetings with each other, they meet in a public place to discuss, not in a parked car or private trailer. Secondly, if he really was that offensive, then why didn’t she walk out of the trialer, or get out of the car while he was “handling himself”….I bet he couldn’t restrain her from leaving with one hand while the other was busy…so again, a little fishy. I think there was consentual sex between them and she thought she could entice a job out of the deal, but when that didn’t pan out, she figured she’d kick the man while he’s down by adding to his current distress. What a way to burn those auditioning bridges gal! You’ll never work for any show on this network again. That’s a great way to go from aspiring actress to expiring actress in two seconds flat!!

    Sex. harr. is about the power which as a producer on the show David has. Regardless of what the girl should or should not have done, his actions and the shows inaction brings cause to the claim. I agree with whoever said Gloria A. does not need the money or publicicy. She doens’t take cases she intends to lose.
    I too read other articles there is another woman who has filed a claim of sex harr just not a lawsuit yet.
    If there was only one I may have doubt but two…fishy. Since David denied and denied affairs with woman and then was forced to come clean his ability to tell the truth is in question. The wife standing by his side just enables him to continue to cheat but I read other blogs that he has cheated thoughtout his entire marriage and she takes it. Too bad she doesn’t think more of herself. Time will tell when he goes to court or pays her off ahead of time if there was any truth here.

    Just because David cheated on his wife, it doesn’t mean he’s a sexual harasser. They are two totally and COMPLETELY different things. One has NOTHING to do with the other. Him being a cheater doesn’t automatically mean he sexually harassed someone because she says he did A YEAR later. why wait so long to come out with it and if she was so offended by him, why the hell did she stay in the car and watch him finish? And then, put herself in situations with him alone over and over again where the alleged incident could happen again? Sorry, but there are too many holes in this story for me to buy it. It’s way too fishy and it’s clear Kristina Hagan is just pissed David didn’t get her the acting jobs she was expecting. The fact that David said they had to ‘cool it’ proves it was more than consensual. Otherwise, they’d have nothing to ‘cool’ in the first place. She had consensual sex with the guy, expected acting jobs out of it, that didn’t pan out and so now, she’s decided to cry sexual harassment. Just another cast of a money-hungry, whiny, whorish extra who is taking advantage of the already existing stigma against David so she can capitalize on the media storm/fallout from his admission of infidelity. She’s pathetic. And, whoever says GA doesn’t need the money, where the hell have you been? Gloria Allred is a media whore and everybody knows it. The fact that she’s taken this case proves it has absolutely NO merit. As for the other alleged case of sexual harassment, considering that woman has not come forward yet publicly the way Kristina Hagan has, I doubt she’s THAT offended by whatever she claims he did to her. These women are pathetic and make women who actually have been sexually harassed look bad.
