Steven Seagal Faces Lawsuit From Kayden Nguyen
Hollywood action star Steven Seagal is being sued for sexual assault by a former employee, Kayden Nguyen.
Kayden Nguyen worked as an executive assistant for Seagal’s production company last February 2010. Nguyen states that on her first day of work, she discovered that she was expected to provide the actor with sexual services.
The lawsuit alleges that Seagal assaulted her repeatedly, and that she was forced to flee his house, leaving hundreds of dollars worth of personal property behind.
Nguyen is seeking damages in excess of $1-million (U.S.).
Marty Singer, Seagal’s lawyer, said in an interview with TMZ, “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.”
