Shortly after the news that a 23-year-old former model is suing Steven Seagal for a bundle of sex-related charges, the action star's lawyer has weighed in: "The lawsuit filed by Kayden Nguyen against Steven Seagal is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for using illegal narcotics," Marty Singer, told CBS' Crimesider.

Alas, the plot thickens: Singer also wrote a letter to Nguyen's lawyer, E! reports, stating the lawsuit violates terms of confidentiality Nguyen agreed to when entering Seagal's employ in February.
