Vin Diesel stops interview to hit on ‘beautiful’ and ‘sexy’ YouTuber in ‘creepy’ resurfaced video amid sexual battery lawsuit

Vin Diesel has been branded “creepy” in light of a resurfaced interview with a “beautiful” YouTuber going viral.

The “Fast and Furious” franchise star, who is the subject of a sexual battery lawsuit by his former assistant, sat down with Brazilian YouTuber Carol Moreira in 2017 to promote his film “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” but paused the interview to comment on her looks.

“God, you’re so beautiful, you’re so beautiful man, am I right or wrong?” Diesel asks in the video.

Moreira thanks him, as he interjects: “How am I supposed to do this interview?

“She’s so beautiful. Let’s get out of here, let’s go have lunch. My God, I love her. Look how beautiful she is, God, I love her wow,” Diesel, now 56, continues.

Asta Jonasson sued the actor, whose given name is Mark Sinclair, on Thursday over an alleged incident that took place at the St. Regis hotel in Atlanta in September 2010.

Jonasson claimed in the complaint, obtained by Page Six, that Diesel “molested her body” before he pinned her against a wall, put her hand on his “erect penis” and masturbated in front of her.

“Terrified, Ms. Jonasson closed her eyes, trying to dissociate from the sexual assault and avoid angering him,” the lawsuit states.

“Ms. Jonasson then heard groaning noises from Vin Diesel …. Jonasson was frozen in a state of shock and unable to move.”

Jonasson further claimed Diesel’s sister, Samantha, fired her within hours of the alleged assault. Samantha is also named as a defendant in the suit.

Jonasson’s term of employment lasted about two weeks.

“There is clear evidence which completely refutes these outlandish allegations,” attorney Bryan Freedman shared. Getty Images

Via his attorney, Diesel vehemently denied the allegations in the lawsuit.

“Let me be very clear: Vin Diesel categorically denies this claim in its entirety. This is the first he has ever heard about this more than 13-year-old claim made by a purportedly 9-day employee,” Bryan Freedman told Page Six in a statement.

“There is clear evidence which completely refutes these outlandish allegations.”
