Seagal's New Accuser

Ray Charles Connection

4/21/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_ray_charles_granddaughter_EX_02The Steven Seagal alleged sexual assault scandal  now has a Ray Charles connection ... TMZ has learned one of the women who just came forward accusing Seagal of making unwanted sexual advances is Ray's granddaughter.

As we first reported, two new women have given sworn declarations to back up Kayden Nguyen's lawsuit against the star.  One is Blair Robinson -- who claims she first met Seagal at her granddaddy Ray's funeral in 2004.

According to Robinson, she was invited to Seagal's home after the funeral -- along with her father Ray Charles Jr. -- to discuss a job opportunity with the actor.

In the declaration, Blair claims she took a job as Seagal's assistant one month after the meeting -- but on day 1, she claims Seagal came to her room and told her she was required to give him massages. In the docs, Blair also claims Seagal tried teaching her the proper method by massaging her.

In the docs, Blair states, "It became clear to me that he wanted and expected sexual favors as part of my job duties." Blair claims she quit after the first day.

Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer, vehemently denies the accusations and claims Seagal has "no knowledge" of either Blair or the other woman who provided declarations.

Singer added, "The declarations were clearly prepared by Nguyen's lawyer to be leaked to the media to help bolster his client's meritless claims."

Karma...The old story from the Raylettes was: If you wanted to be a Raylette...you had to let Ray...

Just what's needed. A woman with far more money than Seagal. Why isn't this a criminal case against this pathological predator? Lock him up! And let his sex crimes lawyer deal with him. Isn't he the one who got Paul Reubens to convicted for child porn?

This should be pretty easy to disprove. His lawyer claims he's never employed these women.



Hope they kept their paystubbs.....

Why did this nut wait until now?? why didn't she come out w/it in 2004...All of this is bogus unless they have the hard core evidences like text messages, video recording, and so on.This is like a cat and a mouse game....

Steven Seagal seems a tad sleazy, but this chick is out for something.

This is awesome...certainly the grandaughter of Ray Charles has some credence. She doesn't need to make a bogus claim to become famouse. She's rich, beautiful and well connected. Sometimes women realize that their word against the offender is not going to be good enough to pursue it and figure no one will believe her. But there is strength in numbers...get him girls...the guy is a predator...get him off the streets!

hmm...that lends more credibility to Kayden.. about that "hard core evidence," of course there isn't any. then he would not be able to deny it if he did commit the act. these types of cases are hard to prove...it's not unusual for her to not come foward right away.

She is no more credible than the other one. Just because she's Ray Charles's grandaughter she doesn't lie? Also, She's rich she has no reason to lie. We know she's rich how? Just because she's Ray Charles grandaughter? No if she were rich why would she be taking a job as Seagal's assistant? Yeah she's in it for something.

He moved on these women on their first day -- don't think they stayed around for a paycheck, therefore, no paperwork was ever sent in to anyone to leave a paper trail.
