Casey Affleck Sued for Sexual Harassment, Countersues

Casey Affleck is being sued for sexual harassment by a producer who worked on his forthcoming documentary about his brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix‘s bid to become a rap star.

According to THR, Amanda White worked on “I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix” and alleges Casey refused to pay her when she wouldn’t spend the night in a hotel room with him. She also claims she had to endure “an impromptu shoot in a Las Vegas hotel room filled with hookers and transvestites.”

Casey isn’t sitting this one down and intends to countersue.

“The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit,” says litigator Michael Plonsker, who reps Casey. “Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her.”

So bizarre!
