Steven Seagal sued for keeping sex slaves

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36446224...t-celebrities/

Steven Seagal is accused of hiring young women as personal attendants whose real job was to serve his strange and sometimes violent sexual desires, according to a civil lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles by a 23-year-old former model who describes her experience in harrowing detail.

The plaintiff, Kayden Nguyen, said she met the action star in February through an ad on Craigslist seeking an executive assistant and, after three interviews, was told to pack for a trip to New Orleans, where the A&E show "Steven Seagal Lawman" was taping.

When she arrived, the lawsuit says, she discovered that Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian "attendants" who were essentially on-call for sex 24-seven.

On that first night, Nguyen was ushered to a secluded house where Seagal was staying with his wife and the two young women. He then proceeded to treat Nguyen as his "sex toy" despite her complaints, the lawsuit says.

She complained the following morning to some of the other employees, assuming that they would deliver the message to Seagal. Hours later, the lawsuit says he assaulted her again, this time forcing her to consume "illegal pills."

The following morning, when she confronted Seagal herself, he told her there had been a "misunderstanding"; but hours later, he assaulted her a third time, an attack that stopped only when she ran away, according to the lawsuit.

The ordeal carried on for several days, and it wasn't until Feb. 28 the following Sunday that she was able to escape the situation, the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit says Nguyen told Seagal that she had to leave to meet with family members who would be suspicious if she didn't show up. Nonetheless, he told her not to leave the house and followed her with a gun equipped with a flashlight as she went out to a waiting cab, which sped away as she jumped in the front seat.

A message left by TheWrap with the action star's attorney, Stuart Rosenthal, was not immediately returned Monday. Messages left with A&E were also not immediately returned.

It was not clear why Kayden Nguyen chose to file a civil lawsuit instead of a criminal complaint. Messages left with her lawyers were not immediately returned Monday.

Nguyen's lawsuit claims that even after she got away, Seagal and his employees tried desperately to persuade her to return. When she escaped, she left behind "everything of value she owned," including car keys, her laptop, clothes, and "hundreds of dollars worth of makeup." She was told she would not get the items back until she signed an agreement stating she would not report the sexual attacks.


The lawsuit says Nguyen had accepted the job on Feb. 22, a Monday, and was sped in a limo to a waiting private jet. Her first indication that something was awry was when Seagal told her, as the plane was taking off, that his wife "wouldn't mind if we had a sexual relationship."

Nguyen's lawsuit said she could identify a "unique physiological reaction" that Seagal has to sexual arousal, which could be corroborated by the other "attendants." The suit did not specify what that reaction is.

The lawsuit alleges sexual harassment in violation of federal labor laws; illegal sex trafficking; retaliation; wrongful termination; and false representations about employment. Each of the six counts seeks in excess of $1 million in damages.
Hrmmm...does he shit/piss himself?

I'm certainly no fan of Seagal, and that "lawman" show is a joke [as are his law enforcement credentials according to wikipedia... if you believe them ], but I think this is a key statement. Maybe these things happened like she said but this just makes it look like she's looking for a payday more than anything else.

Sounds like someone saw money... or their lawyer did.

After all, if they stayed, and got money for giving sexual gratification, they are PROSTITUTES!

Re: Steven Seagal sued for keeping sex slaves

He "assaulted" her, and her reaction was to go to bed and complain to some of Seagal's employees the next morning. It must have been a fairly mild sort of assault. He could have merely slapped her butt as she walked past. Like Nemein says, it wasn't severe enough to interest the police.

It sounds like Seagal was being a jerk, but he needs to choose his new hires a little more cautiously than hiring the first cute girl who answers a Craigslist ad.

That's a pretty shitty shyster if the best target they can identify for a shakedown is Steven Seagal.

Blood from a stone, gents. Blood from a stone.

It sounds like he thinks he's Above the Law. These charges will be Hard to Kill, because she's Out for Justice and his reputation is Under Siege. The Glimmer Man.

They must have made an Executive Decision to file civil charges instead of criminal.

Okay, my turn: Steven Seagal should be Pistol Whipped and Submerged in the Belly of the Beast for using Attack Force during a Flight of Fury with The Onion Movie because he's not a Keeper but a Dangerous Man who I would tell Today You Die if his name were Clementine or if he was a Foreigner...etc, and so forth.

Re: Steven Seagal sued for keeping sex slaves

Here's the sex toy's 32 page complaint filed with the Superior Court of California. It's pretty detailed. Seagal does have a reputation for being sleazy so it doesn't surprise me.

I don't know...I'm thinking the employees don't want to lose their jobs so if she can't get them to corroborate her story, she's gonna lose this one.

Re: Steven Seagal sued for keeping sex slaves

It seems more believable (a bit) when you read the actual complaint. Of course, he's always seemed like an asshole to me, so I'm probably inclined to believing anything bad I hear about him.
