Scott Baio says “in moments” he will address former “Charles in Charge” co-star Nicole Eggert’s accusation that he “molested” her when the actress was a minor.

The actor and outspoken Donald Trump supporter said on Saturday afternoon he will host a Facebook Live “very soon today” to “prove her claims are 100% lies!” Baio says he will post all of his “evidence” on Facebook and Twitter afterward.

Eggert has previously stated publicly that she lost her virginity to Baio at 17.

“There was some flirting, yeah there was some messing around later when I was like 16,” she had said during a 2013 interview on Nik Richie Radio. “And don’t forget, he was in his 20s.”
