Nicole Eggert details abuse allegations against Scott Baio on "Today"

Nicole Eggert details abuse allegations against Scott Baio on

Eggert added that Baio began to treat her differently after they had sex.

Eggert made her claim against Baio on social media last week in response to a tweet on Baio supporting President Donald Trump.

When Nicole started tweeting about this again late past year, shortly after the major stories broke about sexual harassment in entertainment, my attorneys sent her and Alex Polinsky a letter advising and requesting that they take their allegations to law enforcement for a full investigation. "I had never experienced anything like that before", Nicole tearfully told Megyn of the alleged abuse. She said it got to the point that other people would allegedly ask her if she and Scott were dating.

Baio fought back against Eggert's claims in a 15-minute Facebook Live video, in which he says her claims are "100-percent lies".

In statements before Eggert's interview aired, Baio said he and Eggert had a consensual relationship when she was over 18 years old. "And that is when the sexual touching and abuse started". "But I was 17". He did comment on having sex with Eggert when she was 18.

Nicole Eggert spoke out for the first time following her claims that Scott Baio abused her when she was 14. He also was telling me, you know, 'You can't tell anybody, this is illegal, I'll go to jail, the show will be over, everyone will be sued, you'll be out of a job, you'll ruin everybody's life, ' and it's scary. "For 30 years, I've held in the embarrassment and shame of being abused daily on the set of Charles in Charge. That was my delusion and that was my cover-up always". "Then he started expressing his love for me", she said, pausing to suppress tears, "and talking about marriage in the future". He claimed his innocence by citing several interviews she had done in which she talked about their relationship innocently. "But I was 17".

Baio, 57, who was in his 20s when he played Eggert's nanny on the 1980s sitcom, denied her story and accused Eggert of damaging his reputation. Renee actually told Baio her pregnancy news on the finale of Scott Baio Is 45...and Single, so the second season of the show was titled Scott Baio Is 46...and Pregnant.

Additionally, Kelly pointed to a tweet from Adam Carl, who worked on the set of Charles in Charge, that said he remembers being with Eggert while she cried about Baio on set.

"More than ten times; more like, probably, once a week".

On "Megyn Kelly Today", Eggert, seated next to her attorney Lisa Bloom, said she is exploring all legal options and is considering filing a police report. He said that Eggert had previously stated that the two had sex "way, way after Charles in Charge was off the air".
