Allegations of Sexual Battery Against Vin Diesel
Asta Jonasson, Vin Diesel’s former assistant, has filed a lawsuit against the actor, accusing him of sexual battery during the production of “Fast 5” in 2010.
Jonasson claims she was employed by the production company, One Race Films, to assist the 56-year-old actor while filming in Georgia.
Details of the Alleged Incident
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Jonasson alleges that she was present in Diesel’s suite at the St. Regis hotel in Atlanta while he entertained multiple women.
After the last woman left, Jonasson asserts she was instructed to accompany Diesel out of the hotel to avoid paparazzi. She alleges Diesel forcibly grabbed her, groped her breast, and kissed her while they were in the suite.
Jonasson claims she struggled to break free, but Diesel continued his alleged advances.
She further alleges that Diesel lifted her dress, attempted to pull down her underwear, and then pinned her against the wall.
He reportedly grabbed her hand and placed it on his erect penis while in his underwear after pulling down his cargo shorts.
Alleged Unwanted Acts
The ex-assistant claims that Diesel then pulled down her underwear, started masturbating while leaning against her, and commented, ‘No one can say s**t about Asta,’ before leaving the room once he finished.
Jonasson alleges that Diesel’s sister, Samantha Vincent, who is also the president of One Race, terminated her employment hours later, stating they no longer required her assistance.
Legal Action and Reasons for Silence
In her lawsuit, Jonasson asserts she was terminated because she resisted Diesel during the alleged assault.
She remained silent initially, fearing Diesel’s influence in Hollywood and due to her immigration status as a green card holder.
Jonasson cites the #MeToo movement and California’s Speak Out Act, empowering her to file sexual assault claims for incidents dating back to 2009.
Lawsuit Details and Claims
Jonasson is suing Vin Diesel, his sister Samantha Vincent, and One Race Films for sexual battery, wrongful termination, and creating a hostile work environment.
