Seagal's Ex-Nanny:

He Was a Total Gentleman

4/22/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

steven segalAnother one of Steven Seagal's former female employees is finally speaking up, but this time, the woman claims Steven NEVER acted inappropriately toward her -- or anyone else -- during her employment.

TMZ spoke with Sonam Choezom -- who served as Seagal's nanny in 1996. Choezom tells us she met Seagal through a relative who was active in Tibetan Buddhism.

Choezom tells us soon after they met, Seagal learned that her father was very ill -- so he offered to move her from Nepal to the U.S. and employ her as his nanny so she could afford her father's health care.

Choezom claims once she took the job, Seagal was "always very nice and respectful" -- and added that the actor never once made any sort of sexual advance toward her, including massages.

As far as the sexual assault lawsuit against Seagal is concerned, Choezom tells us, "I was very surprised."

This doesn't matter. This is TMZ, where all evidence to the contrary of sexual harrassment, and sexuall assault is ignored by the commentators, and sometimes the TMZ staff.



I wonder if some idiot is going to start comparing Seagal to Ben Roethlisberger, like someone who was comparing Tiger to Ben earlier today...unbelievably moronic.

She was surprised because it's all one big lie! And his ex chiming in with her little pre-book self promoting nonsense is just plain absurd. Kelly who? Riiiiiiight.

It would have been nice to include a picture of the nanny, If she's from Nepal she probably looks like a large Yak which explains why Segal didn't grope her.

Honestly.... Most guys that you hear about in their older years who marry younger woman.... are old perverts... so why is everyone shocked some woman have stories about him? Do I think he hired someone just to have sex with them? No... I think this lady needs a real job other then being on talk shows and trying to sue to make a living.... maybe if she finds a female judge she can "Get him to do anything she wants" but we will have to wait and see!

This doesn't really prove anything either way. Knowing a bit about his long history with and respect for Buddhism, it's unlikely that he would have hit on a Tibetan Buddhist, which is what she appears to be.

She was his nanny in 1996 -- lots of things can have changed since then...midlife crisis, maybe? And I agree -- where is her picture?

Steven Seagal is about 20 years past the time when any groping from him would be welcome. Bloated boozer. Can't he just hire an assistant to be an assistant, and hookers for the sex part, like a normal person?

#1 She probably looks like a yeti, that's why he didn't bust a move on her.



#2 If he cared that much about her father's health care then why not simply give her the money? Why get her to move from Nepal all the way to the U.S. just so she can work for Seagal and then, in turn, not be physically close to her dad?
