Vin Diesel

A former assistant of Vin Diesel has “categorically denied” the sexual assault claims she made against him.

Asta Jonasson is suing the “Fast and the Furious” actor, 56, saying that he “molested her body” in his room at the St. Regis hotel in Atlanta in September 2010. His lawyer has called the claims “odd,” though.

Bryan Freedman said in a statement to Variety, “Let me be very clear: Vin Diesel completely denies this claim that he did anything like that.” That employee who worked for nine days made a claim more than thirteen years ago. This is the first time he has heard of it.

There is strong evidence that these ridiculous claims are not true.

According to a complaint filed by Jonasson in Los Angeles and obtained by Vanity Fair magazine, Diesel invited her to his suite after she came back from a club with hostesses. He then allegedly grabbed her wrists, pulled her onto the bed, groped her chest, and kissed her “despite her pleas” for him to stop.

The claim also said, Ms. Jonasson was afraid to refuse her boss even more firmly because she knew that getting him out of that room was essential for her own safety and her job security.

But this hope died when Vin Diesel got down on his knees, pushed Ms. Jonasson’s dress up to her waist, and groped her body, touching her upper legs and inner thighs with his hands.

Vin Diesel is said to have pinned her against a wall and put her hand on his “erect” member while he touched himself, according to Jonasson. She then supposedly ran away and went to the bathroom.

The claim also said, Ms. Jonasson closed her eyes, trying to separate herself from the sexual assault and avoid making him angry.

After that, Ms. Jonasson heard Vin Diesel groaning. Jonasson was so shocked that he was frozen and couldn’t move.

At the time of the claimed event, Jonasson had just graduated from a film school program in Los Angeles.

Diesel hired her to work for his One Race company while his movie “Fast Five” was being made.

Diesel’s sister Samantha Vincent is also named as a suspect in the suit because she is said to have been in charge of firing Jonasson after only two weeks on the job.

For her, it was clear that she was being fired because she was no longer useful—Vin Diesel had used her to satisfy his sex needs, and she had fought back against his sexual attacks.

This isn’t the only reason Jonasson is suing. He’s also suing for intentional infliction of emotional distress, hostile work environment, wrongful termination, and revenge.
