Robert De Niro, 80, recently suggested in court that his former assistant of 11 years, Graham Chase Robinson, 41, was “in love” with him.
Robinson was initially sued by De Niro for $6 million in 2019, claiming that Robinson misused a company credit card, stole airline miles, and spent too much time during her shift watching Netflix.
Robinson countersued her former employer for $12 million, attesting that De Niro bullied and sexually harassed her. Robinson’s lawyer claims that De Niro treated Robinson as a “work wife” and “would berate her. He would make her life difficult. He called Chase a b—- to her face repeatedly.”
De Niro’s girlfriend, Tiffany Chen, 45, stated, as read in court documents:
She thinks she’s your wife and I’m tired of her rearranging things and throwing my stuff on the floor in chaos whenever she decides she wants to be the ‘lady of the house’ it’s very bizarre and it really has to stop.”
