Documents obtained by Deadline cite that the actor’s former assistant has accused Diesel of “sexually molesting her in a hotel in Atlanta and subsequently firing her in retaliation.”

Reports say that Jonasson filed the Lawsuit on Thursday in L.A Superior Court alleging that during the assault, Diesel had restrained and groped Jonasson.

“Vin Diesel forcibly grabbed Ms. Jonasson, groped her breasts, and kissed her,” the complaint read.

“Ms. Jonasson struggled continually to break free of his grasp, while repeatedly saying no. Vin Diesel is physically larger and much stronger than Ms. Jonasson, and abused his position of authority as her employer, and was able to easily overpower Ms. Jonasson.”

The Lawsuit was filed under ‘California’s Sexual Abuse and Cover Up Accountability Act.’

By filing under the Sexual Abuse and Cover Up Accountability Act, the statute of limitations was no longer applicable.

Additionally, Ms Jonasson cited that she was not able to come forward about her ordeal until now due to a non-disclosure agreement she had signed.

Meanwhile, Reps for Diesel, namely his lawyer has issued a statement regarding the allegations.

And Diesel’s lawyer Bryan Freedman says the actor “vehemently denies the allegations.”

“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 nine-day employee,” he said.

Lawyer Bryan Freedman says, “the evidence refutes the allegations,” calling them “outlandish.”

However, Vin Diesel himself has not spoken publicly on the matter.
