David Boreanaz settles sexual harrassment claim out of court

David Boreanaz, who rose to fame playing the title character — a vampire — in the TV series Angel, has settled a sexual harrassment lawsuit. Kristina Hagan, who worked as an extra on his current TV series, Bones, said Boreanaz came on to her while they were working on the show in August and September 2009. She also claimed he’d sent her “sexually inappropriate text messages,” promising he could “make things happen for her,” tried to touch her inappropriately and exposed himself in front of her. In the suit, Hagan claims the harrassment ended in October 2009 because Boreanaz told her “he and his wife had argued because there were reports of his infidelity” coming out. Although David’s lawyer Marty Singer called the allegations “totally fabricated and absurd” at the time, a settlement has been made with Ms. Hagan. The terms of the settlement are confidential. In 2010, Boreanaz, whose wife gave birth to their second child, a daughter, in 2009, admitted he’d been unfaithful and went public because his alleged mistress threatened to sell the story to the media. At that time, he admitted he’d been “irresponsible” and claimed to be “working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”

    Why is it that those who have so much want so much more? Even to the point of hurting those they claim to love more than anything else…everyone deserves a second chance…

    Good looking family, why would you screw this up? This settlement must have cost him a few bucks, with what he already confessed to, It’s pretty obvious that he did it now that he settled. It shows what lawyers will do, tell the press that it’s all fabricated then settle, if it was all fabricated, they would have gone to court and the burden of proof is on her so it looks like she had proof.

    Not necessarily true about settling. Sometimes it’s really so that person cannot profit off of the actors infidelity. That drags the actors name in the mud even more. THEN he probably had the added pressure of the producers of his show telling him to make it disappear because it will damper ratings. Even if it wasn’t true they still try their best to sweep it away, but most people think that’s admission of guilt. Doesn’t make it so. Allegations alone hurt everyone and the assumptions that go with it.

    Well settling means that nothing else will be reported to the press, so if some ”proof” of the harressement was to be shown in court everyone would know about it…so we all know even if it’s fabricated and untrue people could do about everything to make it real. So settling means we won’t know for sure, but it’s better like that because it’s not our damn buisness.

    Gabrielle, it’s not our business, why do you rant on it then?

    This is kinda hilarious, but seriously why would he cheat on his wife? She’s gorgeous!

    Gabrielle I have to side with Germain on this one. Bones (David’s current major TV Project) has shown some pretty serious ratings in the past few years and the producers & network would have wanted this to go away as soon and as silently as possible. The least amount of negative press the better. Again that is regardless of how valid or accurate the accusations are.
