“The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office said on Thursday that it was reviewing new sexual assault cases involving three celebrities: film producer Harvey Weinstein, action movie star Steven Seagal, and actor Anthony Anderson, the star of the television comedy series ‘black-ish,'” Reuters reports.

The report notes that District Attorney spokesman Greg Risling did not provide details about the allegations or when the alleged assaults took place. Reps for Weinstein, Seagal and Anderson weren’t commenting.

“The claims involving Anderson, 47, were first reported by U.S. media in July,” Reuters notes. “Entertainment news website ‘The Blast’ said a woman had filed a report with Los Angeles police accusing Anderson of assaulting her last year after she catered an event thrown by the actor.”

A rep for Anderson said last month that the actor “unequivocally disputes the claim.”

The Reuters report adds: “Seagal, 66, the star of 1980s movies like ‘Under Siege,’ was made a Russian citizen by President Vladimir Putin in 2016 and earlier this month was made a special representative for Russian-U.S. humanitarian ties.”
