Two more women accuse Steven Seagal of sexual abuse
Two more women have accused Steven Seagal of making unwanted sexual advances while they worked as his assistant.
The women have submitted sworn declarations to help ex-model Kayden Nguyen, who is suing Seagal for 1 million dollars, claiming he used her “like a sex toy” and expected her to pleasure him sexually after landing a job as his personal assistant.
In one of the declarations, obtained by TMZ.com, one woman claims Seagal groped her breasts, telling her he was ‘checking just as a doctor would for lumps.’
The document adds, “Seagal reached his hand down my pants. He said, ‘I just wanted to touch it for a second to see what it felt like.’”
Both women allege they quit working for Seagal after he made inappropriate sexual advances, reports the New York Daily News.
However, Seagal’s lawyer Marty Singer has dismissed the claims as “absurd”, insisting the actor has never even met the two women.
“A preliminary check of his employment records does not show that they ever worked for him. The declarations were clearly prepared by Nguyen’s lawyer to be leaked to the media to help bolster his client’s meritless claims,” Singer said.

The allegations have thrown the future of Seagal's show, Steven Seagal Lawman, into doubt - after the sheriff who works alongside the actor in the series kicked the film crew out of his office.

In posts on his Twitter.com page, Chan writes, "Everybody told me to make a wish. My wish is for world peace... For my birthday party, all my friends donated a total of $325,000 RMB (Chinese yuan) for the drought in Yunnan. I will donate the same & help out the world!"
