Faded action star Steven Seagal is being accused of demanding sex from young women he hired to be personal assistants, according to a lawsuit filed by a former model who claims she was assaulted by the actor.
Kayden Nguyen, 23, alleges Seagal tricked her into thinking she was working for him as an executive assistant but was really expecting her to cater to his sexual desires -- forcing her to take "illegal pills" and pulling out a gun when she resisted.
Nguyen said she applied for the assistant job after seeing it on Craigslist and was hired after three interviews on February 22nd. She was then taken in a limo to a private plane where she met Seagal. They were heading to New Orleans where Seagal's A&E show, "Steven Seagal Lawman" is taped.

It was there were he made his first advance, the lawsuit alleges.
As the plane was taking off, Seagal allegedly told the young woman that his wife "wouldn't mind if we had a sexual relationship."
Things got more bizarre in the Big Easy. She was taken to a house where Seagal was staying with his wife and two Russian women whose primary role was to satisfy the actor sexually, the lawsuit said.
It was there that Seagal began treating Nguyen as his "sex toy." The accuser, who never filed criminal charges, claims she resisted and complained to other staff and was eventually forced to take "illegal pills" by Seagal.
When she was finally able to get away on February 28th, she was chased by Seagal, who she claims brandished a gun equipped with a flashlight. She sped away in a cab, leaving behind "everything of value she owned" including car keys, her laptop, clothes, and "hundreds of dollars worth of makeup." She was told she would not get anything back unless she kept quiet about the incidents.
Both Seagal and A&E did not respond to requests for comment, The Warp reported. Seagal's attorney, Marty Singer, told TMZ.com that Nguyen's lawsuit is full of lies and that she was fired for using illegal drugs.
Nguyen is seeing more than $1 million in damages.
