If anything creepy is going to happen on the set of a Joaquin Phoenix documentary, one would think it would be at the hands of Joaquin Phoenix.
Casey Affleck is calling Amanda White’s sexual harassment claims against him “completely fabricated.” White was a producer on Affleck’s documentary I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix.
Here’s what Affleck’s rep, Ken Sunshine, had to say about White’s claims:
“This lawsuit is a transparent pressure tactic by someone trying to get more than she’s entitled to. For 15 months, she tried to use two different attorneys and an agent in a blatant grab for more money, and when each of her other tactics and new theories didn’t work, she concocted these desperate, fabricated claims.”
Affleck’s lawyer, Marty Singer, is seeking to have the matter settled by arbitration. Guess we’ll see how this one plays out.
