All three cases remain under review.

Three separate sexual assault cases involving Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal and Harvey Weinstein have all been sent to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The D.A.'s office said Thursday that sexual assault cases involving Seagal and Anderson were presented by the Los Angeles Police Department to the D.A.'s office in August.

The Beverly Hills Police Department presented a sexual assault case involving Weinstein in June. 

The L.A. County D.A. is already reviewing two other cases sent by the BHPD and three others sent by the LAPD involving Weinstein. All remain under review.

The LAPD on July 20 confirmed that it was investigating Anderson for a crime, but did not give any other extra details. A report by The Blast suggested that an unnamed woman alleged that the Black-ish star had assaulted her.

Reps for Anderson denied any wrongdoing, saying in a statement, "It's unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim."

In January, the LAPD acknowledged that it had opened an investigation into Seagal, who has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by multiple women, including Jenny McCarthy and Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero. Portia del Rossi and Julianna Margulies have also shared stories of sexual misconduct involving the action star.

Weinstein is currently facing multiple sex-crime charges in New York, with new charges added in July after a third woman had come forward with accusations. Weinstein pleaded not guilty to the original charges in June.

In Los Angeles, meanwhile, investigations of alleged Weinstein assaults have been "under review" since January. The former movie mogul is also facing a police investigation in London after over a dozen women came forward with complaints.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual activity.
