Demandan a Vin Diesel por presunta agresión sexual a su asistente en 2010

Vin Diesel se enfrenta a una demanda por presuntamente forzar a una asistente que trabajaba con él durante la producción de "Fast and Furious" y las afirmaciones de la mujer suenan similares a las horribles acusaciones hechas contra Harvey Weinstein.

Asta Jonasson dice que fue contratada por la productora, One Race Films, para ser asistente de Vin mientras filmaba "Fast 5" en Georgia en 2010. Según los documentos obtenidos por TMZ, Asta dice que estaba en la suite de Vin en el St. Regis en Atlanta, mientras que él estaba entreteniendo a varias mujeres.

Ella afirma que cuando la última mujer se fue, Asta tenía la tarea de acompañar a Vin fuera del hotel para evitar a los fotógrafos. Pero, en lugar de eso, dice que Diesel la agarró por la fuerza, le metió mano en el pecho y la besó —todo ello mientras estaba en la suite— y, aunque ella luchó por liberarse, él supuestamente continuó forzándola.

Jonasson alega que la agresión se intensificó cuando Diesel le levantó el vestido e intentó bajarle la ropa interior, antes de inmovilizarla contra la pared, agarrarle la mano y colocársela sobre su pene erecto. Dice que Diesel estaba en ropa interior después de bajarse los pantalones cortos.

Ella afirma que luego se bajó la ropa interior y comenzó a masturbarse mientras seguía apoyado contra ella, en ese momento, Jonasson dice que mantuvo los ojos cerrados para "disociar" y sobrellevar la supuesta experiencia. Dice que cuando terminó, él se subió los calzoncillos y dijo: "Nadie puede decir nada de Asta" y salió de la habitación.

Horas después, Jonasson afirma que Samantha Vincent —hermana de Diesel y presidenta de One Race— la llamó y la despidió, diciendo que ya no necesitaban su ayuda. En la demanda, Jonasson dice que cree que fue despedida porque se resistió a Diesel durante el supuesto asalto.

De acuerdo con la demanda, Jonasson dice que se mantuvo en silencio durante tanto tiempo por temor al poder de Diesel en Hollywood y a su estatus migratorio como titular de una tarjeta verde, pero dice que se siente empoderada por el movimiento #MeToo. También cita la Ley Speak Out de California, que le permite a las víctimas presentar demandas por agresión sexual por presuntos incidentes que se remontan a 2009.

Ha demandado a Vin, a su hermana y a One Race Films por agresión sexual, despido improcedente y ambiente de trabajo hostil.

Vin Diesel Ex-Assistant Sues for Sexual Battery ... Claims He Attacked After Hotel Party


4:58 PM PT -- Vin Diesel's attorney Bryan Freedman tells TMZ, "Let me be very clear, Vin Diesel categorically denies this claim in its entirety. This is the first he has ever heard about this more than 13-year-old claim made by a purportedly 9-day employee. There is clear evidence which completely refutes these outlandish allegations.”

Vin Diesel is facing a lawsuit for allegedly forcing himself on an assistant working with him during production on one of the 'Fast and Furious' movies.

Asta Jonasson says she was hired by One Race Films, a production company, to be Vin's assistant while he filmed "Fast 5" in Georgia back in 2010. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Asta says she was at Vin's suite at the St. Regis in Atlanta while he was entertaining multiple women.

She claims when the last woman left, Asta was tasked with ushering Vin out of the hotel to avoid photographers. But, instead, she says Diesel forcibly grabbed her, groped her breast and kissed her -- all while still in the suite -- and, although she struggled to break free ... he allegedly continued forcing himself on her.

Jonasson alleges the assault escalated as Diesel lifted up her dress and tried to pull down her underwear ... before pinning her against the wall, grabbing her hand and placing it on his erect penis. She says Diesel was in his underwear after pulling down his cargo shorts.

She claims he then pulled down his underwear and started masturbating while still leaning against her -- at which point, Jonasson says she kept her eyes closed to "dissociate" and get through the alleged ordeal. She says when he finished he pulled up his shorts and said, "No one can say s**t about Asta" and left the room.

Hours later, Jonasson claims Samantha Vincent -- Diesel's sister and president of One Race -- called her and fired her, saying they no longer needed her help. In the suit, Jonasson says she believes she was fired because she resisted Diesel during the alleged assault.

According to the suit, Jonasson says she remained silent for so long out of fear of Diesel's power in Hollywood, and because of her immigration status as a green card holder -- but says she feels empowered by the #MeToo movement. She also cites California's Speak Out Act -- which allows victims to file sexual assault claims for alleged incidents dating back to 2009.

She's suing Vin, his sister and One Race Films for sexual battery, wrongful termination and hostile work environment.


We've reached out Diesel's reps, but no response yet.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Squashes Vin Diesel Beef ... I'm Back in the 'Fast' Franchise!!!


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says he's put aside his years-long beef with "Fast & Furious" star Vin Diesel ... confirming his ass-kicking character, Hobbs, will be back in the driver's seat.

DJ let fans in on his big return Thursday, saying Vin's been like a bro to him for a while -- adding the idea of them resolving their differences was big for him, and what the series has cookin' in its final stretch is way more important than their spat.

He also says Luke Hobbs' return to the silver screen was hard as hell to keep under wraps, and is loving seeing people's reactions to his character -- who entered the game way back in 2011 -- make his big comeback after being last seen in 2019's "Hobbs & Shaw."

As we reported, Dwayne's return came in the form of a post-credit scene in the latest flick, "Fast X" ... despite the actor wanting NOTHING to do with Vin or the franchise.

For those unaware, Vin begged Dwayne to come back to the car-racing family in 2021, telling him online he has "a very important role to play." Dwayne clapped back after the public plea -- saying his cries were just a bunch of "manipulation" and there was "no chance I would return."

Sounds like Dwayne DOES have an important role to play in the end of the series -- there's no other way to read his decision to return.

Celebrity Scramble Guess Who!

Underneath this mashed-up photo is a highly acclaimed movie star who's been workin' her tail off since the '90s, and since she's known for performing her own stunts ... don't be surprised if she whoops your butt at this scramble! Are you equipped to take on the challenge?!

You've seen this blonde "bombshell" being a total boss and ridin' dirty in a fire-red MINI Cooper, and just Friday ... the actress hit the big screen for her third "Fast" franchise film. For those playing "devil's advocate," you may just get stumped on who the fine lady is under the altered image!

Dwayne Johnson Makes His 'Fast & Furious' Comeback ... After Dragging Vin Diesel, Shutting Down Return

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is a part of "Fast & Furious" franchise once again ... despite previously claiming he's permanently put the brakes on when it comes to Vin Diesel's flicks.

Spoiler alert, folks -- but according to TheWrap, Dwayne makes an appearance in a post-credit scene for the latest installment, "Fast X," which hits theaters next week. It's unclear exactly what goes down, or who he appears with, but it's safe to say good ol' Luke Hobbs isn't done drivin' fast cars.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

It's a shocking cameo, though ... because as we reported, Dwanye wanted nothing to do with the franchise back in 2021 after Vin publicly begged him to come back to the 'Fast' family -- asking Dwayne to "not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play."

Dwayne called him out soon after, telling CNN the Instagram plea was just a bunch of "manipulation" -- adding he spoke to Vin privately about his decision and there was absolutely "no chance I would return."

Of course, there was some bad blood between the 2 over the years on set ... with Dwayne saying some of his male costars on those movies  -- with all signs pointing to Vin -- didn't act like "true professionals."

Can you smell what the Rock is cookin'? Cuz it smells like some embarrassing backtracking.

PAUL WALKER'S DAUGHTER MEADOW Cameo In 'Fast X' Movie ... Honoring Dad's Legacy!!!

Paul Walker's only child, Meadow Walker, is taking the torch from her late father ... making a cameo in the latest chapter of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise.

Meadow is making her first appearance in one of the 'FF' movies, sharing a preview Thursday of her cameo in the upcoming "Fast X."

Paul's daughter was only 1 year old when the OG "The Fast and the Furious" was released ... and Meadow says she grew up on set watching her dad, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris and others on the monitors.

Meadow says ... "Thanks to my dad, I was born into the fast family. I can't believe now I get to be up there too. With those who have been around to see me grow up."

Paul's daughter adds ... "I am so blessed to be able to honor my father's legacy and share this with him forever."

Meadow thanked director Louis Leterrier for getting her involved in the franchise. Louis is also set to direct 'Fast & Furious 11' so it will be interesting to see if Meadow gets another cameo.

We discussed Paul Walker's legacy in a recent episode of the Last Days Podcast, available on all podcast platforms.

Suki In '2 Fast 2 Furious' 'Memba Her?!

American actress and model Devon Aoki was 20 years old when she was cast as Suki -- the skilled driver and leader of the all-female street racers and a key member of the Miami crew -- in the 2003 action film "2 Fast 2 Furious."

Aoki shared the big screen with Paul Walker as the charming and brave undercover cop, Brian O'Conner, Tyrese Gibson as the childhood friend and former prisoner, Roman Pearce, Eva Mendes as the sexy customs cop who uses her looks to gain info, Monica Fuentas, and Ludacris as Suki's humble boyfriend and ex-mechanic, Tej Parker.

Guess what she looks like now!

'Fast & Furious' Director Justin Lin Finds Buyer For $5.5M L.A. Penthouse

'Fast & Furious' director Justin Lin just got several million dollars richer ... cause he's found a buyer for his penthouse condo in the heart of Los Angeles.

Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Justin Lin accepted an offer on the condo this week, and the price tag is definitely a come-up from the $2.6 mil he paid back in 2012.

Justin was using the 3-level penthouse as an office for his production company, Perfect Storm Entertainment over the past few years ... and, the third floor was used as a small apartment.

From the looks of it, the new owner is gonna enjoy some pretty amazing views of downtown L.A., along with some cool features ... including a 24-hour concierge, a newly remodeled gym, swimming pool and a rooftop that's fully decked out!

It's really done up ... exposed brick with an industrial feel. Very cool.

Although he recently stepped away as director of 'Fast & Furious 10' -- slated for a May 2023 release -- Lin has a busy schedule, so selling this place is one less thing to worry about!

Justin Lin was able to find a buyer with the help of his brother Jimmy Lin, who held the listing ... along with Compass agents Justin Alexander and Tab Howard.

Ludacris I'm Movin' On Up ... Buys Private Jet Graduation Gift!!!

Ludacris is locking up this year's award for biggest ballin' college graduate -- he's got himself a new private jet just to celebrate his recent degree from Georgia State.

Luda's showing off his shiny new purchase -- a PJ he's planning to use for family vacays, and other trips, we're sure.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

He posted the flying flex with the caption #FamilyUpgrade ... a perfect caption, considering his 4th daughter's birth last year.

As we reported, the rapper/actor just received an honorary degree in Music Management from GSU, and he's not even trying to hide how happy he is about his graduation gift.

Once he stepped on board, Luda was belting out "The Jeffersons" theme song. Ya can't deny he's "movin' on up" ... to about 30,000 feet.

The spacious new jet towers over his last plane, which was a Hawker 700, reportedly worth around $20 million.

If you didn't know, Luda took his love for flying to the next level last year by getting his pilot license.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

It's no secret Luda's 'Fast & Furious' character Tej Parker is a vehicle whiz who soared through the air in the last blockbuster film -- and it looks like he's ready to do his own aerial stunts!!!

Jason Momoa Goin' Hog Wild in Rome!!! ... For 'F&F10'


Jason Momoa is itching to play the villain in "Fast & Furious 10" ... practicing stunts on a chopper and showing off some serious muscle in the process.

Jason jumped on a hog that was attached to a camera and rode up a set of stairs in Rome. When he got to the top he strolled back down, removing his jacket ... revealing a tank top partially covering the endless muscle.

Jason's the newest addition to the 'F&F' franchise. It's a good time to be part of the franchise because the 9th installment last year did super well ... raking in $721 million worldwide.

The franchise has an insane list of stars, including Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, John Cena and Idris Elba.

The flick hits theaters a year from this month. With Jason as the villain, it's gonna be worth waiting for.

Ludacris Gets Honorary Degree at Georgia State U.!!!

Ludacris is officially a Panther for life -- he just got some southern hospitality at his alma mater Georgia State University: an honorary degree in Bachelor of Science in Music Management!

The 'Fast & Furious' legend addressed more than 800 master’s degree graduates on Wednesday to kick off the school's Commencement Week.

Despite attending GSU for a couple of years, Ludacris isn't your average college dropout. He actually left the Music Management program in the mid-90s ... because he signed a record deal with Def Jam Records and released his 2000 breakout single "What's Your Fantasy."

The rest is hip hop history. Luda would go on to release several multi-platinum albums and become a staple in Hollywood (including the aforementioned multi-billion Fast & Furious' franchise) and a happily married father of four.

Georgia State University

Still, with all his success, Luda was clear to let the graduates know his heart never left the campus and signing to Def Jam was a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity.

He saluted GSU for not only having its first African-American President in nearly a century, but also for graduating more African-Americans than any other university in America!

Congratulations to everyone ... time to celebrate with chicken and beer!

Paul Walker Zak Bagans Buys Sunglasses From Crash Site ... Wants To Return To Family

Paul Walker's sunglasses from his fatal car crash are changing hands ... and Zak Bagans wants to get them back to the late actor's family.

The "Ghost Adventures" star tells TMZ ... earlier this year he bought the infamous pair of Maui Jim sunglasses recovered from Paul's crash site, but he doesn't feel comfortable displaying them at his Haunted Museum in Las Vegas.

Instead, Zak tells us he'd like to return the shades, worn by Paul at the time of the crash, to the Walker family for free ... and he's planning to reach out to the family directly.

You'll recall ... Paul died in a fiery car crash back in November 2013 and there was a ton of outrage when the sunglasses went up for auction in 2014 for $15,000. A man who was at the crash site allegedly found them in the bushes once the wreckage was cleared.

The man who found the glasses says shortly after the crash he tried getting in touch with Paul's family but never heard back. He then put the sunglasses up for auction, but after lots of backlash ... they never sold. The owner of the auction reached out to Zak earlier this year and Zak bought them from him.

If for some reason the Walkers don't want the sunglasses, Zak says he would seek the family's permission to display them in a new memorial exhibit at his museum.

Zak's already displaying different artifacts connected to dead celebs ... including a piece of the James Dean death car, Sharon Tate's wedding dress and a Patrick Swayze tooth ... but he says he would create a special display just for Paul, if it gets to that point.

Stay tuned ...

Vin Diesel Calls on The Rock ... Help Us Finish Out 'Fast' Franchise!!!

Vin Diesel seems ready to put his differences with The Rock aside -- all in the name of putting a bowtie on his baby ... namely, capping off the 'Fast & Furious' franchise.

The actor sent an open message to Dwayne on IG, posting a photo of the two of them in character from one of their 'Fast' flicks and extending an olive branch of sorts -- inviting DJ back to installment number 10, which Vin sees as crucial to putting this thing to bed.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

VD writes, "My little brother Dwayne... the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes... but the time has come. Legacy awaits."

He adds, "I told you years ago that I was going to fulfill my promise to Pablo. I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny."

It's interesting ... Vin is inviting him back, but didn't even tag The Rock or anything, which is strange because the dude is very online ... and tends to respond to stuff in a flash.

Dwayne doesn't appear to have responded just yet -- and perhaps some of this is being worked out behind the scenes, out of public view -- but ya gotta figure if he does agree to do it ... he'll do it in grandiose fashion, like most everything he does on social media.

Of course, there's no guarantee Dwayne will even be down to sign on -- because, as you probably know, they have beef ... which we thought was over and done with, but was reignited earlier this year with new comments from Vin -- and Dwayne responded.

Vin addressed the feud to Men's Health over the summer, saying he was giving The Rock a lot of "tough love" when he first started in the 'Fast' franchise ... and DJ told THR that made him "laugh hard," while going on to wish Vin and co. well on the rest of franchise.

Dwayne hasn't been in a 'Fast'-related movie since 2019, when he starred as as Agent Hobbs in the spinoff, 'Hobbs & Shaw.' Before that, he was in 4 different 'Fast' films.

If the final installment does, indeed, need Hobbs to finish it on a high note like Vin says here ... we'll see if Dwayne obliges. After all, he is a pretty nice guy. Let bygones be bygones???

Paul Walker Daughter Meadow Gets Married

Paul Walker's daughter just got hitched ... and, of course, his good pal, Vin Diesel, was there to walk her down the aisle.

Meadow Walker posted videos Friday from her wedding, and it looks like it was a beautiful ceremony somewhere on the oceanside.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Meadow's new husband is actor Louis Thornton-Allan ... and their marriage comes just a few months after they announced their engagement.

Vin always said he and Paul became family working together on the 'Fast and Furious' franchise ... plus, he's Meadow's godfather, so it makes sense he'd be front-and-center for her big day.

TMZ broke the story when Paul died in a fiery 2013 car accident. He was 40 years old and Meadow was just 15 at the time. She's 22 now, and working as a fashion model.

This is Meadow's first marriage -- she and Louis just went public with their relationship in July. Considering the tragedy she's endured, you can understand why they didn't waste time with a long engagement.


Britney Spears BF Says She'll Be Back On Stage Soon ... Well, Hopefully!!!


Britney Spears' boyfriend is as hopeful as her fans she'll return to performing, and seems to think it could happen soon ... but admittedly he's got his fingers metaphorically crossed.

Sam Asghari was leaving an intense and sweaty workout at Bas Rutten's Elite MMA Gym in L.A. Wednesday when he blurted out something that could send Brit's followers into a tizzy ... claiming she'll "absolutely" take the stage again soon.

His absolute statement was quickly followed up with a mumbled "hopefully" -- so it doesn't sound like there's any solid plan in place just yet.

As for recent developments in Britney's conservatorship case -- like her father Jamie agreeing to step down -- Sam has another brief response ... with some added muscle.

Speaking of which, Sam makes a quick pitch to the producers of 'Fast & Furious 10' for a role and he's certainly taking his acting and fitness goals seriously.


He's been on a hot streak this year -- with appearances on shows like "Hacks" and "Black Monday" -- so don't count him out ... as long as he continues to avoid those ice cream sundaes.

Paul Walker Toyota Supra Driven in 'F&F' Fetches $550k at Auction!!!

Paul Walker's supped-up Toyota Supra that he drove in "The Fast and the Furious" has gone to one super-charged fan ... who snagged the fast whip at an auction for $550k.

The 1994 car was auctioned off in Las Vegas this weekend ... and the winning bid came from a phone bidder for Brian O'Conner's original 10-second car. The Supra's auction had been one of the most anticipated ones in recent memory.

'F&F' fans know this car all too well -- it's the one he fixed up before smoking a Ferrari while racing down PCH in Malibu.

The car was also featured in the second installment ... 2003's "2 Fast 2 Furious." The new owner will get all the extensive documentation of the car's origin plus a certificate of authenticity. BTW, the car was built at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, CA.

Under the hood, the Supra's got what's billed as "perhaps the most renowned engine to ever come from Japan" -- the 2JZ-GTE. Remember ... Dominic Toretto's crew guy, Jesse, famously said in the first installment "2JZ engine ... this will decimate all."

As we reported ... the late actor's baby brother, Cody Walker, wouldn't even venture to guess what this car would go for at auction ... but he knew it would rake in some serious cash. And, he was right.

He also told us he thinks Paul would have thought the auction itself for a car like this is kind of hilarious.

Walker's Wild Whip

Cody was in middle school when the OG 'F&F' film came out ... and he said folks stop him all the time to tell him his bro is what got them into loving fast cars. There's a legion of 'F&F' fans that have grown exponentially thanks to the enormous success of the franchise.

Clearly ... who drops half a mil for a Toyota?!
