Vin Diesel Accused of Sexual Battery by Former Assistant in Lawsuit

Asta Jonasson files a lawsuit accusing “Fast and Furious” star Vin Diesel of sexual battery, detailing allegations from her time as his assistant in 2010.

Renowned “Fast and Furious” actor Vin Diesel is embroiled in controversy as Asta Jonasson, his former assistant, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles alleging sexual battery against the actor during her tenure in 2010.

The lawsuit accuses Diesel of coercive behavior, detailing an incident in an Atlanta hotel suite where he purportedly forced himself onto Jonasson. Allegations suggest that after Jonasson resisted Diesel’s advances, he proceeded to grope her, attempt to remove her underwear, and subject her to unwanted sexual acts, causing distress and fear.

Jonasson, terminated hours later by Diesel’s sister Samantha Vincent, president of his production company One Race Productions, expressed feelings of degradation and self-esteem erosion, attributing her dismissal to resisting the actor’s advances.

In response, Diesel‘s attorney Bryan Freedman vehemently denied the claims, citing the lack of prior knowledge about the allegations, further asserting evidence refuting the accusations.

Jonasson’s attorney, Claire-Lise Kutlay, emphasized the lawsuit’s aim to hold Diesel and those involved accountable for their actions, advocating for survivors’ empowerment and workplace protection against sexual assault and harassment.

As the legal battle unfolds, this controversy casts a shadow on Diesel’s Hollywood career, impacting both his reputation and legal standing amidst the ongoing allegations.
