Days after Andy Dick was charged with misdemeanor sexual battery for groping a woman on a Los Angeles street, a video has resurfaced of the actor rubbing Ivanka Trump’s legs during an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in 2007.
In the video, the two are Kimmel’s guests for the episode, and Trump is shown talking to Kimmel before Dick takes a swipe at her legs.
“You don’t play up the glitter on your legs?” he says, reaching over to rub her knee, before Trump laughs and slaps away his hand.
“Andy, please don’t touch Ivanka,” Kimmel says, getting up from his chair and walking over to Dick. “Donald Trump will kill both of us.”
In an interview with “Extra” about the segment, Kimmel refers to kicking Dick off his set after the incident.
“Andy did a segment, he was a little out of it,” he said. “She (Ivanka) came out… he wanted a big, wet kiss. It was time for Andy to go, so I escorted him out by his feet.”
“He’s Andy. He’s not upset. He’s not apologetic. He’s just nutty,” he added about Dick’s reaction to the interaction. “He always makes me a little uncomfortable. You have no idea what he’s going to do next.”
Dick previously discussed the Trump incident in an Instagram post from December 2017, in which he posted a screencgrab of the video and a caption attempting to explain his behavior.
“The time I ‘groped’ Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, on Jimmy Kimmel Live,” he wrote. “Her legs were sparkling, and I was trying to see if the glitter would wipe off. I also mistakenly thought she would date me. I was jokingly carried off by security. Is anybody going to carry Trump off? No joke. Confusing times.”
Dick was charged this week with misdemeanor sexual battery after a woman reported that Dick groped her on April 5. The Los Angeles City Attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan told the Associated Press that misdemeanor sexual battery and battery charges were filed Wednesday, and that the actor is scheduled to be arraigned on July 18.
Dick has been arrested and sued over several groping accusations including a 2010 incident involving a bouncer and patron at a West Virginia bar. Criminal charges were dismissed after Dick completed a pretrial diversion program.
Dick’s representatives did not immediately respond to an email request for comment about the charges.
