'Deadliest Catch's' Sig Hansen Fights Scandal, As Disturbing Sketch Emerges

The estranged daughter of "Deadliest Catch" star Sig Hansen is accusing her father of molesting her as a child, according to court documents obtained by the Seattle Times.

Sig Hansen, 50, is named as a defendant in a court declaration filed in Seattle, Washington, by Melissa Eckstrom. And she says she has proof.

The television star has denied the allegations and has dismissed them as "an old-fashioned shakedown".

The Deadliest Catch star's now 28-year-old estranged daughter said that at the time her parents were going through a divorce.

In her new court filing, Melissa states, "I have memories of my father hurting my genital region. Memories of being in a room alone with my father and crying out in pain", Eckstrom wrote in the court documents.

The documents of the lawsuit have been filed back in November of a year ago but the case was made public just now because Mellissa finally chose to make her identity known. "To the contrary, the information at hand suggests that Mr. Hansen has acted in a sexually inappropriate manner toward Melissa".

However the prosecuting attorney's office declined to file criminal charges because they felt it wouldn't be able to prove "beyond a reasonable doubt" that the accusations were true. "It's blackmail", he told The Seattle Times.

Regarding the accusations, Hansen stated: "This is nothing more than an old-fashioned shakedown".

"It's a completely frivolous lawsuit full of lies that my ex-wife made up to take away my daughter, and still uses to try to extort money from me", he said in a recent interview.

His lawyers attempted to have the case thrown out on the claim that he was exonerated of the abuse when the allegations first arose, but their request was denied.

After the divorce, Hansen gave up his parental rights to Melissa. He has since remarried and adopted his second wife's two daughters.

Eckstrom claims in legal papers that she said during a childhood medical examination that "daddy puts his finger in my potty-pot", an intimate area, and remembers telling both her grandmothers that "daddy pottied on my leg". She is also quoted in the 1990 documents as saying "daddy hurt my bottom", and that he poked her with his "big peepee".
