Porn legend Ron Jeremy has been hit with a lawsuit by an unnamed Washington state woman who accuses Jeremy of committing “four distinct sexual assaults” against her on a single night in 2017.
In the suit, filed in Superior Court in Washington, Jeremy’s accuser — identified only as “K.B.” in the suit — says she was working as a model at a promotional event in Tacoma for her employer, radio station KISW, which Jeremy — real name Ron Hyatt — was appearing at.
“Defendant Hyatt forced himself upon K.B. in four distinct sexual assaults over the course of the evening, taking advantage of K.B.’s youth, trust and professionalism in a role which required her to project happy enthusiasm on behalf of the radio station,” the lawsuit reads.
According to the suit, during one incident, Jeremy fondled the woman’s breast beneath her bra.
The suit alleges that Jeremy pulled down the woman’s torn T-shirt, “reached under the bra and violently groped her breast.”
A alleged second incident involved Jeremy clutching the woman’s bottom, according to the suit, while a third alleged incident involved Jeremy sucking on the back of her neck and digitally penetrating her, “forcefully pushing his finger inside of her through her underwear,” the suit says.
The fourth incident, according to the suit, involved Jeremy pulling down the woman’s shirt and bra, exposing her breasts, and “placing his mouth around her exposed nipple.”
In a statement provided to TheWrap on Thursday, Jeremy maintained that his accuser’s claims had already been dropped by the district attorney and police.
“This case was already dropped by the district attorney and police,” Jeremy said. “There were lots of people, including security guards and video cameras. The police and district attorneys looked at all of the videos and dropped the case. Our team received a phone call from the police at the time, they said that they reviewed all of the videos and spoke to witnesses and found no evidence. They said that they still had to send it off to the district attorney, who obviously found nothing.”
Alleging assault and sexual battery, the suit seeks unspecified damages.
