Robert De Niro’s Girlfriend Blasts His Ex-Assistant in Court
Robert De Niro’s girlfriend blasts his ex-assistant, Graham Chase Robinson, in court on Thursday, November 2, 2023. Robinson is suing De Niro and his production company, Canal Productions, for gender discrimination and wrongful termination.
Robert De Niro’s girlfriend, Tiffany Chen, testified against his former assistant, Graham Chase Robinson, in court on Thursday, November 2, 2023. Robinson is suing De Niro and his production company, Canal Productions, for gender discrimination and wrongful termination.
Chen testified that Robinson was a “mean-spirited” and “nasty” person who was “always complaining” and “never happy.” She also said that Robinson was “unprofessional” and “didn’t do her job.”
Chen specifically accused Robinson of being “obsessed” with De Niro and of having an “unhealthy attachment” to him. She said that Robinson would often make inappropriate comments to De Niro and that she would try to get him alone.
Chen also testified that Robinson was lazy and incompetent. She said that Robinson would often disappear for hours on end and that she would never finish her work. She also said that Robinson would often make mistakes and that she would have to fix them.
De Niro’s attorney, Brent Hannafan, used Chen’s testimony to support De Niro’s claims that Robinson was a difficult employee. Hannafan also pointed out that Robinson had been fired from previous jobs for similar reasons.
Robinson’s attorney, Michael J. Willemin, denied Chen’s allegations and accused her of being biased against Robinson. He also said that Chen was trying to protect De Niro.
The trial is expected to continue for several more days. It is unclear when the jury will begin deliberating.
Chen’s testimony is a major blow to Robinson’s case. If the jury believes Chen, it is unlikely that they will find in Robinson’s favor.
However, Robinson’s attorney is likely to argue that Chen is not a credible witness. He is likely to point out that Chen is De Niro’s girlfriend and that she has a vested interest in protecting him.
The jury will have to decide who they believe. If they believe Chen, then Robinson’s case is in trouble. But if they believe Robinson, then De Niro and his production company could be facing a multi-million dollar judgment.
