The nasty court battle between Steven Seagal and former model Kayden Nguyen just got nastier.
The "Today You Die" actor's attorney says that Nguyen’s allegations are “ridiculous and absurd,” and without a “scintilla of truth.” In a statement, Marty Singer says he is “extremely confident this merit-less lawsuit will be dismissed.”
The encounter with Nguyen happened after Seagal hired her as an executive assistant in February. She filed a lawsuit that stated the actor “had been keeping two young female Russian ‘Attendants’ on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” and that he wanted her to replace one of the girls.
The lawsuit also claimed that Steven not only put his hands under Nguyen’s skirt but apparently tried to touch her breasts,, as well, on her first day of work. Singer says these claims are a “complete fabrication” planned by a “disgruntled” ex employee. Another statement released by Seagal’s camp noted that the ex-employee was fired for using illegal narcotics.
Singer also stated that “I am extremely confident this meritless lawsuit will be dismissed. Ms. Nguyen filed her lawsuit without even notifying Steven Seagal or his representatives of her alleged claims because she was aware that claims could be asserted against her based on her own conduct. Her lawsuit is nothing more than a preemptive strike by a disgruntled ex-employee.”
