Action movie star Steven Seagal is being sued by 23 year old former model, Kayden Nguyen. Nguyen claims that Seagal sexually assaulted her and ultimately escaped his home leaving behind all of her personal belongings.
According to court documents obtained by CBS News, Nguyen was hired by the film star last February as an executive assistant at his production company. It was on her first day that she discovered that she was a replacement for one of the two Russian female "attendants" to provide sexual services for Seagal 24/7.
Nguyen's lawsuit claims that on three occassions Seagal sexually assualted her with forced contact or groping.
Nguyen also claims that for six days she was kept against her will at Seagals secluded Louisiana home, where the Seagal family was allegedly staying. Nguyen says that during her escape she was chased in the night by Seagal who was armed with a flashlight attached to a gun.
In an interview with CBS News' Crimesider, Nguyen's lawyer stated that she didn't call the police because he is the police in Jefferson Parish. In Addition to his movie career, Seagal has been a commissioned deputy for 20 years and is currently commissioned in the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's department. His cable show, "Steve Seagal Lawman," follows his adventures. (Video clip above)
