LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) David Boreanaz, star of "Bones," was sued Thursday for alleged sexual harassment by Kristina Hagan, a woman who appeared as an extra on the show last year. 

The harassment claim comes just months after rumors of his extramarital affairs surfaced, and the actor publicly admitted to cheating on his wife.

Hagan sued Boreanaz and 20th Century Fox Television for more than $25,000 on sexual harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims.

Her lawsuit alleges that the actor repeatedly tried to kiss and fondle her after she appeared as an extra on the show in August. It claims that incidents occurred in several locations, including the actor's car.

The lawsuit, According to TMZ, claims that he "attempted to kiss her and touch her breasts but she pushed him away" in his parked car. And that Boreanaz "unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis and began stroking it until he ejaculated."

The suit claims she repeatedly met with the actor because he promised her a recurring role on the Fox TV series, but that role never developed.

"The allegations concerning any alleged inappropriate conduct by David Boreanaz are totally fabricated and absurd," Boreanaz publicist Holly Shakoor said in a statement. "There is no validity to this lawsuit."

An e-mail message to a 20th Century Fox publicist was not immediately returned.

Hagan is being represented by well-known Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred, who said her client is "looking forward to her day in court."

In May, Boreanaz told People magazine that his marriage "has been tainted with [his] infidelities."
