Scott Baio Threatens to Sue Nicole Eggert Over Underage Sex Accusations

Scott Baio is now ready to unleash his legal firepower on Nicole Eggert, and is accusing of her maliciously smearing his name during the “charged environment of today’s media.”

The Blast obtained a legal letter sent by Baio’s attorneys to Eggert which states that he denies all of the accusations made by Eggert regarding sexual interaction when she was a minor on the set of “Charles In Charge,” and makes it clear to her that if she continues to “repeat accusations against Mr. Baio that involve coercion or activity with you when you were underage, Mr. Baio will not hesitate to take legal action against you and to seek all available remedies.”

The threat sent by Baio’s attorneys make it clear to Eggert: “Especially in the charged environment of today’s media, any such accusation will cause Mr. Baio to suffer tremendous and ongoing damage in his personal and professional endeavors.”

Eggert appeared Tuesday on “Megyn Kelly Today” and once again claimed Baio molested her when she was 14.  She also said they had sex when she was 17.

Along with preparing to take legal action against Eggert, Baio is scheduled to appear Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America” to tell his side of the story.
