Friend of Ray Charles Defends Steven Seagal, Shoots Down Sexual Harassment Accusations

by at . Comments

First a former employee went on record this week with nice things to say about Steven Seagal.

Now, the actor has someone else in his corner: Damien Ross, a former friend of Ray Charles, told TMZ that he set up the initial meeting between Ray's granddaughter, Blair Robinson, and the actor. It took place in a Memphis hotel in 2004, so Seagal could interview her for a personal assistant position.

Robinson has since accused Seagal of demanding sexual favors from her.

Does Steven Seagal think he's above the law? Or is the actor being wrongly accused?

Ross says Robinson was never alone with Seagal and never even had a room in the same hotel as the troubled star, which contradicts what Blair wrote in a sworn statement last week.

As for Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer, he also questions Robinson's allegations and motives:

"Ms. Robinson was never employed by Steven Seagal and never received any compensation from any entity even though she claimed to have worked more than six years ago for my client."
