“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.”
