A graphic video of Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy fame sexually assaulting male caretakers is being shopped around, according to gossip site TMZ.
The 68-year-old Horn who was mauled by a tiger in 2003 – is seen in the video engaging in aggressive sexual behavior with staff members while going through rehab to strengthen his left side, while his right side remains extremely strong.
The video shot in 2010 shows the following:
– As a caretaker helps Horn to the restroom, Roy shoves his hand into the man’s butt crack in an extremely aggressive manner.
– During another trip to the restroom, Horn is seen pressing his buttocks against a male staff member’s crotch.
TMZ, who screened the video and broke the story, says in two separate clips Roy is seen grabbing the genitals of two male caretakers, and later manhandles another staff member by going under his shirt and tweaking his nipples, while the man writhes in pain.
Horn is also seen forcibly kissing one caretaker on the mouth and later whipping another staff member with an oxygen tube after he becomes frustrated with the man.
The three male caretakers told TMZ that they are all straight and have families. They have also filed a lawsuit against Horn in Nevada for the alleged sexual assaults.
The caretakers said they recently went to the police to file a crime report but were told the 1-year criminal statute of limitations lapsed.
In 2010, Horn’s personal assistant, Oliver Preisis filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the duo claiming he was the subject of several sexual overtures by Siegfried and Roy.
Preisis says Siegfried and Roy maintained a “very sexualized home” and when Preisis didn’t comply with Horn’s sexual advances he was fired.
At the time, Siegfried and Roy called the lawsuit “a legal shakedown.” A Las Vegas court agreed with the magicians and awarded them $37,000 in damages.
There has been no word from the Siegfried and Roy camp regarding these current accusations.
