“Bones” Television Star David Boreanaz Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
March 30, 2011
In recent Hollywood entertainment news that our Riverside labor and employment attorneys have been watching, television actor David Boreanaz, the star of the hit FOX television series "Bones" settled a lawsuit today after a former extra on the show sued him for sexual harassment.
According to the lawsuit filed in July of last year, Kristina Hagan met Boreanaz while working as an extra on the show in 2009. Hagan reportedly gave the television star her personal contact information after Boreanaz allegedly promised her a featured acting role on the show. Hagan accused Boreanaz of sexual harassment after she receiving sexually explicit texts, or 'sexts' from him that included graphic pictures.
Hagan claimed in the lawsuit that his sexual advances became physical after she agreed to meet with him to talk more about her career. Boreanaz allegedly made unwanted sexual overtures toward Hagan, and when they weren't reciprocated, Hagan claimed that Boreanaz retaliated by masturbating in front of her.
Marty Singer, Boreanaz's attorney has called the sexual harassment lawsuit absurd from the start, and powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred, who represented Hagan in lawsuit, stated that the lawsuit has been settled and the matter has been resolved.
Last year, just a few months before this sexual harassment lawsuit was filed, Boreanaz reportedly announced publicly that he had cheated on his wife, former Playboy Playmate Jaime Bergman, who he has been married to since 2001, and with whom he has two children. Boreanaz reportedly came forward with the infidelity after the woman he was involved with threatened to blackmail him.
