The photos look like something out of the hit movie Avatar. And only RadarOnline.com has the story behind the aspiring model who is suing actor Steven Seagal for sexual harassment and illegal trafficking of females for sex.
Kayden Nguyen, was 19, when she as approached by San Francisco photographer Todd Hartman for his gallery exhibition called “Elements.”
He already booked “Ice” and “Earth”, but needed “Air”.
He found Kayden on a Web site for aspiring models and after meeting her she said she was perfect. “I wanted to pick someone who embodied the element,” Hartman told RadarOnline.com. “Kayden had a very airy, light flowing quality to her. I saw her as Air or Water.”
The four photos show Kayden fully nude, but covered in blue latex body paint. One of the poses has her leaning back in what may appear to be a seductive stance. But, Hartman says “it wasn’t what either of us was going for.”
He says the Asian beauty who he met in November 2006, “seemed more elegant.”
Hartman remembered that Kayden was going to school full-time and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
She got a job as Steven Seagal’s personal assistant and had a chance to be on his reality show in February; but after the alleged sexual harassment, she quit and filed a lawsuit on Monday.
