Scott Baio is denying allegations made by former Charles in Charge co-star Nicole Eggert that he molested her when she was a minor.
“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.
Baio has since responded on Facebook Live, later posting his full response to the allegations on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, saying Eggert is “provably wrong.”
“Only after Nicole Eggert was proven to be dishonest in her ‘sex at 17’ allegations did she create a new story about sexual contact at an even younger age. For the record, they are false too,” his statement continued, asserting that Eggert was only making these claims to capitalize on the #MeToo movement that disrupted Hollywood late last year and spurred the Time’s Up initiative, which aims to combat abuse of power in the workplace.
Baio does confirm that he and Eggert had consensual sex “well after she turned 18.”
Charles in Charge ran for five seasons on CBS with Baio starring as the titular character. Eggert joined as Jamie Powell starting in season two and remained a fixture on the show until it ended in 1990.
