Steven Seagal's Accuser

Liked to Jacket

4/13/2010 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0413-kayden-nguyen-reg3Kayden Nguyen -- the girl who accused Steven Seagal of treating her like his sex toy -- looked extremely professional when she applied to work for the action star ... at least on paper.

Kayden's lawyer tells TMZ this photo of the 23-year-old former model was submitted with her application to fill Seagal's "executive assistant" position back in February.

According to the lawsuit Kayden filed yesterday, she got the job ... and on her first day, Seagal allegedly put his hands under her skirt, tried to fondle her breasts, and forced his hand down her pants.

Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ Kayden's lawsuit is an absurd pack of lies and she was fired for using illegal narcotics.

btw, it's SHIRT, not skirt, TMZ got the info wrong or they misspelled it, look up her actual filed complaint.
and i'm saying all this because i'm sick and tired of rich people think they can do whatever they want, tiger woods, big ben, our senators, and of course movie stars, i'm not jealous btw i'm doing fine, not rich but not poor, and don't want to be like any of them.

This guy is SICK. Go and read the court papers. He is a pervert! JERK. This poor girl only wanted a job and got assaulted instead. Read the court filings from the links provided.

While I doubt the validity of this story the racist comments are appalling. Nguyen is a common last name in the vietnamese culture, just like Smith. Go back to the rice patties? WTF..



I agree, she should've went straight to the police as soon as the incident occurred but if Seagal is an actual local sheriff who would she report it to locally? HIM.

It is supposed to read "shirt". TMZ was guilty of a typo, and a number of posters guilty of idiocy...why would you reach under a "skirt" to fondle a woman's breasts? Just asking.



O, yes, Steven Seagal, New Orlean's sheriff. I watched the show once, and couldn't stop giggling. He certainly looks the poser, all bloated and toad-like...hardly the Buddhist accolyte with his gun and badge, working for one of the most dubious police departments in the nation.



As to aikido, it was originally, and traditionally taught as a woman's self-defense art, to be used by a much smaller person as a deadly means of defense against a much larger opponent. The original strikes of aikido were not simply meant to immobilize, but to kill, and it was NEVER used unless a situation was life-threatening. I have seen demonstrations of the original form, and it is nothing like the bastardized crap that Seagal uses (and no, I am not versed in aikido, because the modern form is more style than substance).



Seagal's movies are ripe with hyperbolic violence, ridiculous plots, and mixed messages. As to his accuser, I think she should have gone to the police, no question. I also believe that he forced himself on her, again, no question. It is possible that she went to a lawyer because she was threatened, seeking legal advice, before going to the police (considering how many racially offensive comments have appeared right here, do you necessarily blame her?), and that she got a shyster who saw a golden opportunity to exploit the woman's victimization to earn himself a pot of gold (most lawyers get at least 40% of a lawsuits take).



I'm sure she was a model (duh, there are baby models, child models, and hoards of teenage models), and in businesses in which appearances count, photos are often requested along with resumes (unethical? Perhaps, but millions of people post photos of themselves on Facebook and MySpace, and potential employers have no compunctions about taking a look). I hope the police take a look into Mr. Steven Seagal's "business" practices. They might find something interesting.

If you don't believe this girl, talk to Jenny McCarthy. She has stories to tell about her audition for Steven Seagall.

I have a good friend who is a beautiful young mixed-race girl, who has known Steven Segal since she was 10 or so, and who experienced the exact same thing while staying at his house in L.A.



It didn't seem to bother his wife at all. The guy is a total demented pervert.

To #28 (jen newman):



Are you actually stupid? Companies asking for pictures with an application are just asking for a discrimination lawsuit. This isn't the old days where you could specify age, gender, and looks for a job position unless there is a compelling reason (such as models and actresses). While I admit discrimination still goes on it is ridiculous to think companies are going to be so blatant about it that they will essentially say "please sue me if you don't get this job" by asking for a picture.

She wants a MILLION DOLLARS? for WHAT? Another "model" seeking fame anyway she can. It's scary being a celeb. You're a target for every crazy gold digging nutcase. This case will be dropped. I'm sure they'll find out she was a former prostitute etc etc.

11. DO YOU REALLY THINK HE'LL GIVE YOU A MILLION DOLLARS HA, HA. MAKE YOURSELF USEFUL. you KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF SINGING AND DANCE SHOWS AROUND.SHUT UP OR GO BACK TO THE RICE FIELDS.

Don't be racist, it's 2010. And learn how to deselect caps lock next time. If this were you, you would be doing the same thing. So don't judge before you know the truth.



Also, it's stated elsewhere that she didn't call the cops b/c the town where she was staying is where SS's show about cops is filmed and he is considered a deputy of some sorts. In other words, he is one of the cops.

Seagal's production company was like "what are we going to do now sir, she's threating to sue us now. ...well she IS going to sue us!" Segal chilling back in his computer chair: [flings hand up] **** it, just fire her ass for using illegal narcotics."
