It has been more than a decade, but the woman who allegedly suffered sexual battery from Vin Diesel has yet to put all of it aside. After finding inspiration from the new California law, she slammed the actor with a lawsuit and a ton of unscrupulous conduct.

Vin Diesel’s Former Assistant Says Actor Is Guilty of Sexual Battery

Asta Jonasson is the name of the person who brought Vin Diesel’s sexual battery accusations to life. The former assistant filed a complaint stating that she had a nerve-wracking experience with the Fast and Furious star. In the lawsuit reported by Vanity Fair, Asta was alone with Diesel in the Atlanta St. Regina Hotel when he attacked her.

It was an unexpected incident that seemed inevitable as she had been hired to remain in close proximity to him. On a night in September 2010, Diesel took advantage of this closeness by forcibly pulling her onto his bed.

Statement from the lawsuit read that Diesel “molested her body, running his hands over Ms. Jonasson’s upper legs, including her inner thighs. Terrified, Ms. Jonasson closed her eyes, trying to dissociate from the sexual assault and avoid angering him.”

Asta Wants Vin Diesel To Pay For His “Alleged” Sexual Misconduct

Vin Diesel’s former assistant wants him to pay for sexual battery, discrimination based on sex/gender, emotional trauma, hostile work environment, and unlawful termination.

This lawsuit has somehow addressed Asta’s unfair treatment as an employee of One Race. One Race is a firm jointly founded by Diesel and his sister.

According to the plaintiff, Diesel was not the only one involved in sexual battery. Asta was reportedly ordered by a One Race exec to visit his hotel room.

The alleged trauma was not the only blow that hit hard, but getting fired inappropriately. Asta lost her job in One Race barely a month after employment. Samantha Vincent, sister to her employer, terminated the contract, and it felt wrong. As per People, the words in the documents read:

“It was clear to her that she was being fired because she was no longer useful — Vin Diesel had used her to fulfill his sexual desires and she had resisted his sexual assaults. Ms. Jonasson felt like she was a piece of trash to be discarded.”

Diesel’s accuser ensured to list out her job description in the lawsuit. She was employed to organize parties and attend to the actor’s needs. Her presence was to remain close by whenever the Fast and Furious star was partying to avoid controversial news.

Unfortunately, she might have been too close for her safety. The lawsuit comes on the heels of the Speal Out Act, which limits the power of non-disclosure agreements in sexual assault cases. She had formerly signed a non-disclosure agreement as a One Race staffer.
