Action man STEVEN SEAGAL’s former assistant has accused the movie star of trafficking women for sex in a stunning new lawsuit. Ex-model Kayden Nguyen claims she applied for a job as the Under Seige star’s executive assistant in February, 2009, but had no idea the job involved pleasuring the actor.
In court papers, Nguyen alleges Seagal had two Russian girls “who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week” and one of them was quitting. She was expected to replace her.
Nguyen claims Seagal treated her “as his sex toy” and tried to fondle her breasts and force his hand down her pants on her first night as his assistant.
In the legal documents, Nguyen alleges Seagal sexually assaulted the following day and forced her to consume illegal pills.
Nguyen is suing for damages of over $1 million for sexual harassment, sexual trafficking of females and wrongful termination, as well as other complaints.
No wonder the “Jersey Shore” stars are heading back to Seaside Heights — they can’t get into any of Miami’s hot clubs with their MTV cameras. “No one wants them to tape here. They went to the W Hotel the other night and got rejected,” said one club source. “They were also refused by the Delano, Shore Club and the Mondrian.”
An MTV spokeswoman announced last week that the cast would be heading back to Seaside Heights in a few weeks. Miami locals are breathing a sigh of relief. One said, “Mike Sorrentino and ‘Pauly D’ DelVecchio pulled up in a black Escalade with New York plates at 9:30 Thursday morning blasting house music and parking in a 30-minute loading space in front of David’s Cafe, off Lincoln Road, as dozens of locals were standing in line for their morning coffees . . . prompting them to roll their eyes and whisper to each other, ‘When do they leave?’ “
Season 2 is slated to air on MTV beginning July 29.
Meanwhile, the production company behind The Jersey Shore is looking for Persian-Americans. The firm 495 Productions and Doron Ofir Casting have announced that they’re casting a “Persian version” of the MTV hit reality show about young Italian-Americans partying at the beach.
The casting call, seeks applicants who are 21 or older, “appear younger than 30 and are outrageous, outspoken and a proud Persian-American.”
A spokesman for 495 Productions didn’t reply to questions about whether the show had any TV network deal.
It’s a fight club for orangutans.
A safari theme park in Thailand has become a macabre tourist attraction for its orangutan kick boxing matches – complete with simian “round card girls.”
Safari World, on the outside of Bangkok, has been drawing huge crowds that cheer orangutans forced to wear boxing gloves and trained to trade punches and spin kicks.
As the heavyweights of the jungle duke it out, female orangutans parade around in bikinis displaying the round number.
After the 30-minute shows, the orangutans are returned to their dark, dingy charges, according to an investigative report.
“It’s sad that people would find this entertaining,” said Debbie Leahy, director of captive animals for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
“When you see these animals performing what are completely unnatural tricks…they’re not doing it because they want to, they’re doing it because they’re afraid not to,” Leahy said.
The Daily Mail of London obtained video exposing the barbaric matches at Safari World and showing tourists cheering wildly as apes pummel each other.
While organizers insists the orangutans have been trained to pretend as if they’ve been knocked out, disgusted animal rights activists warned of the abuse the 250-pound animals endure while being trained.
Orangutans previously rescued from other entertainment parks showed signs of abuse upon arriving at an animal refuge in Indonesian Borneo, they said.
“It is heartbreaking that such practices still go on,” Grainne McEntee of the wildlife rescue group Borneo Orangutan Survival told the Daily Mail. The Thai government shut down the Safari World monkey matches in 2004 – and seized 48 orangutans that had been illegally smuggled from Indonesia.
It’s unclear why the bizarre show is once more allowed to go on.
