Steven Seagal: Lawman Breaking the Law?
A former employee of action star-cum-deputy police officer Steven Seagal has accused him of sexual assault and trafficking. Kayden Nguyen says she answered his Craigslist ad for an executive assistant in February, and instead realized upon being hired that she was there to fulfill the Under Siege star's sexual demands. TMZ reports that the 23-year-old model showed up for work, where she discovered "Mr. Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian 'Attendants' on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." She was to replace one of the "attendants," who had quit, according to her lawsuit. The Dangerous Man began groping her almost immediately upon her arrival in New Orleans, where Seagal films Steven Seagal: Lawman, his turn as a real-life sheriff's deputy. He allegedly requested a massage, and when Nguyen refused, he put his hands down her pants and told her, "Relax, we won't do anything special tonight. I'll save that for another night." Nguyen also alleges that he described himself as a "family man" but said his wife wouldn't object to a sexual relationship. TMZ says she complained - to whom is unknown - the next morning, but the assault continued, and Seagal supposedly forced her to consume pills. Nguyen eventually hopped a flight back to L.A. Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer, calls BS on the allegations: "The lawsuit filed by Kayden Nguyen against Steven Seagal is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for using illegal narcotics." Nguyen is suing Seagal for more than $1 million - presumably far more than his deputy salary.
