Movie actor Steven Seagal is facing legal action from a former personal assistant who claims he sexually abused her and illegally trafficked women.
In papers filed with Los Angeles County Superior Court, Kayden Nguyen claims she was assaulted three times before fleeing his home in New Orleans, BBC News says.
Nguyen, 23, claims she'd actually been hired to be "available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
The suit says the 53-year-old actor put Nguyen up in his house, and on her first night asked for a massage. When she refused, Seagal reached under her shirt to fondle her, New York Post reports.
Seagal is being sued for sexual harassment, illegal trafficking of females for sex, failure to prevent sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination and false representation about employment.
On Tuesday his lawyer said: "The lawsuit filed by Kayden Nguyen is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired.", Telegraph informs.
This problem is not limited to the situation with the "whale prison" in Russia's Far East, because many people buy tickets to go to oceanariums and turn a blind eye to the problem
