Steven Seagal Sued for Sexual Assault

TMZ has gotten its hands on a nasty lawsuit filed by a former model against Steven Seagal that accuses him of sexual assault and trafficking women for sex. In the lawsuit, 23-year-old Kayden Nguyen says she applied for a personal-assistant position with Seagal and got the job. But when she went to work, the assisting she was expected to do was a little too personal.

On her first day she met two Russian girls who she says "were available for [Seagal's] sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." She was expected to fill a similar role. On her first night, Nguyen says, Seagal reached his hands up her skirt, tried to touch her breasts, and stuck his hands down her pants. The next day he did it again. Yikes! Now Nguyen is suing Seagal for sexual harassment, illegal trafficking of females for sex, failure to prevent sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination in violation of public policy, and false representations about employment.

We're not sure how this will affect Seagal's reputation as a Lawman, but it can't be good.
