A bombshell report rocked Hollywood on Thursday, with action star Vin Diesel being accused of sexual battery.
The charges were levied by a former assistant of the “Fast and Furious” franchise star.
According to the report, the alleged victim worked on the set of “Fast Five” at the time of the alleged assault.
Diesel is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood with one of the most successful franchises in movie history, but that could all come crashing down.
The alleged victim has been identified as Asta Jonasson, who has also claimed that Diesel’s sister, Samantha Vincent, wrongfully terminated Jonasson after the alleged assault.
The filing stated that Diesel "forcibly grabbed Ms. Jonasson, groped her breasts, and kissed her" while at a hotel in Atlanta.
The filing continued that "Vin Diesel ignored Ms. Jonasson’s clear statements of non-consent to his sexual assaults.”
Claire-Lise Kutlay of Greenberg Gross is representing Jonasson in the case, stating, "We are proud to represent Ms. Jonasson and hold accountable Vin Diesel and those who allowed and covered up his sexual assault.
"The law exists to protect those who have been wronged, no matter how powerful or famous the defendant is. Sexual harassment in the workplace will never stop if powerful men are protected from accountability."
Part of her duties in working for Diesel was to organize parties, catering, and remain close to Diesel when his girlfriend was not attending to protect him from gossip and paparazzi photos with other women.
After the alleged incident, Jonasson claims that Diesel’s sister contacted her and terminated her employment. Kutlay added, "The message was clear. Ms. Jonasson was fired for courageously resisting Vin Diesel’s sexual assault, Vin Diesel would be protected, and his sexual assault covered up."
This could be a career-ender for Diesel, who is also involved in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise, providing the voice for Groot.
Diesel’s team has not yet responded publicly to the allegations.
