Some drama unfolds around Vin Diesel, the 56-year-old Fast & Furious guy. A recent lawsuit by his former assistant, Asta Jonasson, and a resurfaced interview are creating quite a stir. Vin flat-out denies the accusations of sexual battery that Asta’s throwing at him.

To give you some background, Vin Diesel, or Mark Sinclair when he’s not in action-hero mode, is the guy we all know as Dominic Toretto from Fast & Furious. He’s been with his partner Paloma Jiménez since 2007, and they’ve got three kids together.

Asta, who used to work as Vin’s assistant, claims some pretty heavy stuff went down during the filming of Fast 5 in 2010. Vin’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, is standing firm, saying Vin had no clue about this until now.

Asta’s story goes like this: she was supposed to help Vin dodge paparazzi at a hotel in Atlanta. After other people left, she says Vin got physical, grabbing and kissing her. She says things got even worse, with Vin allegedly exposing himself and doing some inappropriate stuff.

Asta kept quiet back then, fearing Vin’s Hollywood clout and her immigration status. But now, inspired by the #MeToo movement, she’s suing Vin, his sister Samantha Vincent, and their film company for sexual battery, wrongful termination, and a messed-up work environment.

Vin’s lawyer insists there’s evidence proving Asta’s claims are way off, calling them “outlandish.” He points out that this is the first time anyone’s heard about this, more than 13 years after it supposedly happened. He also brings up that Asta worked for Vin for just nine days.

In response to the lawsuit, Asta says Vin’s sister canned her hours after the incident, claiming they didn’t need her anymore. She believes it’s because she stood up to Vin during the alleged assault.

Vin Diesel’s Past Interview Resurfaces

While the lawsuit is going on, an interview with the actor resurfaced drawing attention to what some describe as “creepy and cringeworthy” behavior. This comes in the wake of a lawsuit filed by his assistant Asta Jonasson, accusing the Fast & Furious star, 56, of sexual battery, which Diesel vehemently denies.

The controversial interview, originally from a press junket for XXX: The Return of Xander Cage in 2017, featured Diesel interacting with Brazilian YouTube star Carol Moreira. In the footage, Diesel compliments Moreira, expressing admiration for her beauty and even asking if they could have lunch together. At one point, he crawls towards her on his knees, declaring his love for her and disrupting the interview.

In the footage, Diesel exclaims, “You’re incredibly beautiful, absolutely stunning, am I right or wrong?” as he shifts his attention to crew members off-camera.

As the reporter expresses gratitude, Diesel continues, “How am I supposed to focus on this interview? She’s so gorgeous. Let’s wrap this up and grab lunch. My goodness, I adore her. Look at her beauty, wow.”

Diesel continued despite the journalist’s efforts to steer the conversation back to the interview. He delivers his famous catchphrase “I Am Groot” in Portuguese, and he persists, saying, “What’s the matter? Am I the only one noticing her beauty?”

Crawling towards the journalist on his knees, Diesel adds, “She’s unbelievably beautiful. It’s like you can’t even conduct an interview with her around.”

Social media users criticized Diesel’s behavior in the resurfaced clip, describing it as “creepy” and “unprofessional.” Some commented that it was one of the “cringiest interviews ever,” expressing surprise at Diesel’s behavior.

As we wait to see what happens next, this case is not just about Vin Diesel – it’s sparking conversations about power dynamics and the challenges folks face when they speak up about misconduct in Hollywood. Stay tuned for more updates on this unfolding drama.
