Robert De Niro’s ex-assistant is demanding his $6 million-dollar lawsuit against her be thrown out of court, denying she stole from the actor.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Graham Chase Robinson is asking a New York judge to throw out De Niro’s case and allow her separate $12 million case against him to move forward.
Robinson started working with De Niro at his company Canal Productions in 2008. Earlier this year, "The Irishman" star sued Robinson for $6 million dollars. He accused her of stealing from the company, using company money for dog sitting expenses and watching Netflix at work. De Niro accused his ex-employee of abusing her vacation days.
De Niro’s ex-assistant filed her own lawsuit in October. She accuses the actor of creating a toxic work environment. In her lawsuit, she accused him of urinating during phone calls and asking her to scratch his back.
