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!

Olivia Munn is his attorney, why not post a picture?

Serious stuff. Casey Affleck isn’t just an actor; he is a brand. And a still developing one with much more of a future than a past, unlike Mel. Casey has no choice but to sue as his reputation is at $take. Otherwise we have no idea about his innocence or guilt.

Good point, anon. I’m really curious to see how this one turns out.

yeah right !!! his wife is joaquim phoenix sister. so yeah he was in his room with transvestites and protitutes! when his wife’s brother was there

I don’t believe it. Would he do this when his wife’s brother is there all the time? Doubt it!

usually women file sexual harassment suits, when it is not going their way…
i am a woman but there are some crazy women out there!!!

I do believe there is some truth to this woman’s claims, where there is smoke there is fire. People who have seen this movie casey directed say it’s pretty crude and vulgar, so the behviour by Casey and Joquin during the making of this was probably the same really crude and vulgar with no respect towards women, the only women in this trashy movie are hookers and strippers. I doubt casey cheated in front of his brother in law and anyway joaquin was probably too stoned and drunk to even know what was going on.

@kate: Where’s there’s smoke there’s fire? How about innocent until proven guilty? I think I like that edict more than your proverb.

Totally on Casey’s side but…..C’mon!What r u guys doing?whataya wanna put in your movie?I’m a lil confused.

@lene: you got the point.And once Summer said she likes Joaquin the most in the whole family and Joaquin is the closest sibling to her.So I don’t actually buy it coz Joaquin won’t let Casey to this to his little sis.

It’s a lie! No Affleck man would ever do such a thing.

pffft – ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’ – sure, in some cases. But the number of bs cases there’ve been that have gone through court and everything and it’s turned out that the woman has completely fabricated her allegations. This kind of thing happens all the time……

This suit is all about money. No matter what went on on the set, things were fine and dandy as long as the woman in question got paid. Things didn’t go her way so she retaliated with a law suit. Perhaps she’s counting on the graphic reputation of the film to give her story credibility, but the flick and life are 2 very different things. This woman is about to learn a very hard lesson. Casey has one of the nicest reputations in Hollywood. He’s famous for being unpretentious and devoted to his wife and family. This producer tried to extort money and he wisely did not give in. Sure, it’d be easy to hand over $50,000 just end the lies and the media intrusion, but Casey has integrity on his side. On the bright side, this press will undoubtedly help publicize the film.

Yes sure hester, this suit is all about money so she picks CASEY AFFLECK to get it? No. Why not file false claims about joauin? He has MORE money than casey does. This woman works in hollywood and worked with casey, ben affleck and matt damn on “good will hunting”. She has money. Not like casey would be the person to go for if she wanted money. She worked with actors who make 10x what he does, why the hell would she pick him?

Nice try. the truth is coming out about casey just like the truth has come out about joaquin being a cheater himself.

“Casey has one of the nicest reputations in hollywood”

oh yeah so you’re basing your bull on his “reputation”?! In land of the fake hollywood. You have no clue what he REALLY is like. You’re assuming you do because of his “reputation” and that is so naive. Hello TIGER WOODS!!!!! Was he not crowned “the all american good boy”?Yeah I think he was. Until they found out he was cheating on his wife with DOZENS of women!! Hollywood is FAKE. The image you have of them isn’t who they are.

Hi, biz! Have a great day.

Summer is standing by Casey so I think this whole thing is made up.

Daisy, the wives always publicly “stand by” their husbands. Then they get divorced out of nowhere. They do this because they feel publicly humiliated, and don’t want people to know that their husband has been cheating on them with hookers. Like “kiki” said and many others have been saying, she has no reason to falsely accuse casey of this. If she wanted money, wouldn’t she go after an actor who actually had millions and millions to spend? Casey isn’t exactly the richest man in hollywood. Joaquin has more money than he does. She has worked with tons of rich celebrities, so why the hell would she decide to file a suit against casey….who undoubtedly has a much much lower income than the others? Makes no sense.

Not only that, but out of all things to sue him for, she’d decide to make it sexual harassment? Out of all the things she could have picked, it was that? If she had a problem with what he paid her, it would make more sense to sue him for not paying what he was legally obligated to pay. Its not adding up. He is guilty for sure.

I think his fans are incredibly naive. You think it’s hard to cheat on your wife? Hell no. Especially not when you’re a celebrity who has been spotted partying in las vegas with his buddies several times before.

Why choose sexual harassment? They ALL choose sexual harassment. She’s after Casey because he fired her and she’s mad. Look at her imdb page. Her resume is really brief and she hasn’t been an actual producer that long. Most of her jobs were much lower level. This was the best job she ever had and she was dismissed.

I cant believe every one is falling for this. Isnt it obvious this is part of the hoax? The timing is to perfect. The film is coming out soon and look how many stories are being written about it. Casey and Joaquin planned this whole thing and this AManda is in on it with them.
