Steven Seagal reality show fans may have to wait a while for new content. Find out why the Steven Seagal reality show is on hiatus here.
If you haven’t heard, the former action movie star is being accused of some pretty salacious misdeeds—and now his show “Steven Seagal: Lawman” could be in jeopardy.
A woman named Kayden Nguyen filed a lawsuit claiming that Seagal hired her under the false pretense that she would become a executive assistant, only to find out that she would actually be an on-call sex toy. The woman detailed several violent assaults that allegedly occurred in her first days on the job. She also alleges that she was held against her will for a period of time and even forced to take ‘illegal pills’ before one of the incidents.
As a result, the Sheriff in the county the show is shot has opted to suspend filming. Sheriff Newell Normand has contacted A&E to notify them that continuing with the show at this time would be a ‘distraction’ for the Sheriff’s department. He also said that his office would not conduct an investigation unless Nguyen filed an actual criminal complaint.
I suppose you can’t go on filming Steven Seagal’s reality show about law and order when the man himself is accused of doing such things. What has baffled most observers, though, is that the woman has not attempted to press charges against the actor. That leads some people to the obvious conclusion that it is about the money—especially considering she is seeking over $1 million in damages.
Then comes the news today that Kayden Nguyen’s lawyer was able to get sworn statements from some other alleged victims. He said:
“Several of Seagal’s other victims have already come to my office and submitted sworn declarations detailing the facts of Seagal’s illegal conduct towards them.”
Even more shocking is that Jenny McCarthy once admitted that he treated her in a less than gentlemanly manner as well. Her claims were confirmed by an old interview that CBS managed to find. Here’s what she said back in 1998:
“I go inside Seagal’s office, and he’s by himself and says, ‘Sit on my couch,” McCarthy said. “Then he said, ‘Take off your dress.’ I just started crying and said, ‘Rent my Playboy video, you ass—e!’ and ran out to the car.”
Wow. I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. But if some sort of pattern can be established, he could be toast.
