Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores. He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals, the suit says. He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.
In the Lawsuit, Chase Robinson claims De Niro treated her as his office wife and made her do stereotypically female duties, like housework while underpaying her and denying her overtime. The actor also allegedly urinated during telephone calls with Robinson and would greet her wearing only his pyjamas or a bathrobe, the suit says.
Among other things, De Niro would direct Ms Robinson to scratch his back, button his ties and prod him awake when he was in bed, the complaint adds. De Niro also stood idly by while his friend slapped Ms Robinson on her buttocks.
Robinson said she had to endure De Niro’s jokes about his Viagra prescription and that he directed her to imagine him on the toilet. De Niro suggested that Ms Robinson could get pregnant using sperm from her (married) male co-worker, the suit adds.
Robert De Niro Allegedly
Chase Robinson was fed up with her work conditions in November 2018 and met with Robert De Niro to resign. He induced her to stay by saying that her work conditions would improve.
In addition to promising better work conditions, he also said he would give her a lousy recommendation if she left.
De Niro responded with both a carrot and a stick – he made promises to induce to her stay and threatened repercussions if she left.
Given De Niro’s prominence in the entertainment industry, he had the power to carry out his threats. Says the lawsuit.
