Renowned Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel is now confronted with serious allegations of sexual assault, as detailed in a lawsuit filed by his former assistant, Asta Jonasson, stemming from an incident in an Atlanta hotel room in 2010.

In the lawsuit, Asta, a professional in the film and TV industry, accuses Vin Diesel, whose real name is Mark Sinclair, of groping her, forcibly kissing her, and engaging in inappropriate behavior in his St. Regis Hotel room.

Jonasson, who was hired during the filming of Fast Five, contends that the assault took place on September 10, 2010, just a week after her employment began.


Shockingly, she asserts that she was terminated the very next day in apparent retaliation for resisting Vin’s advances.

Asta Jonasson is seeking legal recourse, filing charges for sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit extends its claims beyond Vin Diesel and includes his production company, One Race Productions, as well as his sister, Samantha Vincent, who is accused of wrongful termination, retaliation, and negligent supervision and retention.

The lawsuit emphasizes the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements as catalysts empowering survivors to break their silence.

Jonasson, previously fearful of repercussions, now seeks justice and reclamation of her agency, spurred by the protection afforded by the Speak Out Act and the recent revival of her claims under AB2777.

Vin Diesel now finds himself amid a growing list of high-profile celebrities facing legal action for alleged sexual assault and sexual misconduct, joining the ranks of individuals like Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jamie Foxx, Russell Brand, Axl Rose, Jimmy Irvine, and L.A. Reid.
