It looks like fiercely anti-Trump actor Robert De Niro could be in some legal trouble.
Apparently, the young Vito Corleone wasn’t very nice to a woman who was once worked for him.
Here’s the deal…
Actor Robert De Niro is being sued by a former employee who claims that the Hollywood star engaged in gender discrimination, harassment, and workplace retaliation. She is also alleging that The Irishman actor made unwanted physical contact and was verbally abusive to her.Trending:
Graham Chase Robinson, who filed the lawsuit in a New York federal court, worked for De Niro’s Canal Productions as vice president of production and finance. De Niro sued her in August for $6 million, alleging that she misused corporate credit cards and engaged in Netflix bingewatching while on the job.
Robinson is now firing back, seeking at least $12 million in damages. In the complaint, she alleges that De Niro engaged in vulgar rants against her and at least one other female business partner. She claims De Niro called her a “bitch” and a “brat” while calling another woman a “cunt.”
NEW: Robert De Niro sued for allegedly subjecting a female employee to creepy and abusive behavior, including “gratuitous unwanted physical contact” and “sexually-charged comments to her.”
