Hollywood Shock: Vin Diesel Faces Insane Sexual Assault Allegations

2 Mins read

In a disturbing turn of events, actor Vin Diesel is facing serious allegations of sexual assault, as revealed in a lawsuit filed on Thursday by former assistant Asta Jonasson. The lawsuit, lodged in Los Angeles County Superior Court, targets Diesel and his production company, One Race Productions Inc., along with One Race Films Inc. and Diesel’s sister, who holds the position of president at One Race.

The lawsuit spans various violations, including a hostile work environment, retaliation, failure to prevent discrimination, wrongful termination, and sexual battery. Jonasson, in her complaint, claims that Diesel sexually assaulted her in an Atlanta hotel in 2010.

Diesel’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, vehemently denied the allegations, stating, “Diesel categorically denies this claim in its entirety,” and asserting that it is the first time Diesel has heard about the claim made by Jonasson, who was purportedly employed for only nine days. Freedman added, “There is clear evidence which completely refutes these outlandish allegations.”

One Race Films, Diesel’s production company, did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and Diesel’s sister has not yet responded to Facebook.

The lawsuit portrays Jonasson as a seasoned professional in the TV and film industry when she was hired by One Race in September 2010 to work directly for Diesel. However, the suit alleges that her duties included organizing parties and staying close to Diesel at events where his longtime girlfriend was absent.

According to the lawsuit, the alleged assault occurred in September 2010 when Diesel, after a night of drinking, joined Jonasson and others in his hotel suite. Jonasson claims that Diesel forcibly hugged, kissed, and groped her, attempting to undress her, while she pleaded with him to stop.

The suit further contends that Diesel’s sister terminated Jonasson’s employment hours after the incident. Jonasson was allegedly required to sign a nondisclosure agreement, but the lawsuit argues that she is protected by the Speak Out Act, which shields victims of sexual assault even if they have signed NDAs.

Claire-Lise Y. Kutlay, an attorney for Jonasson, expressed concern about the incident, stating, “What happened to Ms. Jonasson is alarming and disgusting.” Kutlay hopes that the lawsuit will bring about change in the film industry and prevent future misconduct.

This case adds to the ongoing conversation about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and underscores the challenges faced by victims in coming forward. As the legal proceedings unfold, it remains to be seen how the industry will respond to the allegations against the prominent actor.
