Actress Eliza Dushku accused the stunt coordinator for the film True Lies of sexual assault, and her legal guardian has now confirmed it.

In a post to her official Facebook page on Saturday, Dushku detailed how Kramer ingratiated himself to her and her parents and allegedly lured her to a hotel room and assaulted her. While filming on True Lies continued and Kramer got wind that Dushku had told a friend about the assault, she ended up with broken ribs from a stunt injury “by no small coincidence,” she wrote.
