Robert De Niro accused of ‘abusive and sexist’ comments in $12 million lawsuit

Robert De Niro was slapped with a gender discrimination lawsuit Thursday by a female former executive assistant, Graham Chase Robinson, who claims the star lobbed “abusive and sexist comments” toward her.
The suit comes as Oscar winner De Niro is starring in two big new movies, Joker and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman.
It also comes two months after De Niro’s Canal Productions sued Robinson in New York state court for allegedly misappropriating thousands of dollars.
“The allegations made by Graham Chase Robinson against Robert De Niro are beyond absurd,” said an attorney for the actor.
