Scott Baio denies sexual misconduct charge by former co-star Nicole Eggert

Scott Baio denies sexual misconduct charge by former co-star Nicole Eggert

"Ask [Scott Baio] what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor", she wrote in a tweet on Saturday that set off a media storm about what possibly happened between the two actors. He indicated that he did at one time have sexual contact with Eggert, but when she was over 18 years old, and claimed she was the initiator. "Creep", she tweeted in response to a joke about the Happy Days star and his support for President Donald Trump.

As for whether or not Eggert's claims are true, Baio's wife, Renee, sent a reply stating that "Scott's legal team has served u more than 2 cease & desist letters".

Baio responded in a 16-minute Facebook Live video saying that he is being falsely accused of inappropriately touching and having intercourse with her when she was a minor. He also plays an audio recording of an interview Nicole did years ago in which she talks about losing her virginity to Scott years after his television series ended in 1990, which would have made her at least the legal age of 18 years old if not older.

It was then, she alleged her inappropriate relationship with Baio began. In the clip, Scott produced two letters, dated from past year, to Eggert and "Charles in Charge" co-actor Alexander Polinsky, who he claims "decided to team up against" him, telling both of them to seek police intervention if they had plausible claims.

"The reason I'm doing Facebook Live is because no one can edit me. Now, any normal, heterosexual, red-blooded, American guy, the outcome would've been the same", he said.

The actor claimed that Eggert's first accusations against him arose in 2012 and 2013 when she was promoting realities shows, insinuating that she was after more publicity.

As Baio concluded in his Facebook video, false allegations distract from legitimate claims.

"There are a lot of weird, odd rumours about things that went on between us, but we became really good friends and everything is way more innocent than it was made out to be", she said.

At the end of the video, Baio says, "The problem with nearly all he-said-she-said cases is they're he-said-she-said".

Eggert and Baio starred together on the network sitcom Charles in Charge in the 1980s. Now, go prove it or disprove it. Now, go prove it or disprove it.
