Casey's Court Case Extended

joaquin1e.jpg

Is this a good thing or a bad thing for Casey Affleck?

Obviously the man wants this to be over with, but an extension on the deadline for his case COULD mean that both parties are negotiating a settlement.

When asked to comment though, Affleck’s attorney said that no settlement negotiations are underway.

The new deadline for Casey's first accuser Amanda White to submit her opposition brief to Affleck’s motion to move the case from Los Angeles Superior Court to private arbitration is Sept 9th.

On Sept 10th, Affleck’s film I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is scheduled for U.S. release. We’re sure Casey would LOVE to solve this thing before the film is released.

This case gets more messy by the day. What could possibly happen next? Is Joaquin Phoenix going to come forward and sue Casey for sexual harassment as well?

Other Female Producers Come Forward To Defend Casey Affleck!

wenn1890282__opt.jpg

This story is getting uglier and uglier!

Casey Affleck is currently in some serious hot water for allegedly harassing Amanda White and Magdalena Gorka, a producer and cinematographer on his documentary, I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, but two other women from the production have come forward to defend him!

Associate Producer Nicole Acacio says:

"I got to know both Amanda and Magdalena to some degree. I never saw anything out of the ordinary either on or off set, and certainly nothing like what they described in their suits. I was in Las Vegas at that shoot, and I never saw anything like that happen. Casey's wife and his children were in town with him. Casey is a great guy, and it's clear that he's a very warm, family-centric person. The real Casey isn't the one who was described in these suits. Nothing I've ever witnessed would lead me to think he could ever do anything like that."

An unnamed female editor also agreed:

"These lawsuits are contrary to everything that I personally know about Casey."

And it looks like Affleck himself is getting pretty pissed off at these two women, because he's planning to countersue for breaching their confidentiality agreements!

Geesh! This one's tough to call!

Who do U believe?

Another Woman Accuses Casey Affleck Of Sexual Harassment!

Ruh-roh!

Another female employee who worked on Casey Affleck's upcoming documentary I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is claiming that Casey sexually harassed her by climbing into bed with her and groping her as she slept!

EWW!

The accuser, Magdalena Gorka, is suing the actor for $2.25 million, saying that Casey allegedly engaged in harassing behavior and refused to pay her when she quit the project.

Gorka says that she was the only female employee working on the film and while in production, the crew stayed at Joaquin Phoenix's apartment instead of a hotel. She slept in Phoenix's bedroom while he slept on the couch.

Her claims say that:

"During the middle of the night, [Gorka] awoke to find Affleck lying in the bed next to her. Unbeknownst to [Gorka], Affleck had entered the bedroom while she was asleep and crawled into the bed. When she woke up, Affleck was curled up next to her in the bed wearing only his underwear and a t-shirt. He had his arm around her, was caressing her back, his face was within inches of hers and his breath reeked of alcohol."

When she woke up, she didn't know how long Affleck had been in bed with her or where she had been touched. When she told him to get out of bed, he asked, "Why?" in which she responded, "because you are married and because you are my boss." Gorka claims that he left the room and "slammed the door in anger."

Gorka adds that she left the project later that day, but returned later when another female, and Casey's other accuser, Amanda White, joined the project. Gorka says that she "was berated and verbally attacked by Affleck after she refused his sexual advances in New York, and was criticized constantly for refusing to be submissive in response to his rants and derisive comments."

Who knew that Joaquin would be the least scandalous story to come out this movie??

Casey Affleck's Accuser Tried To Get More Money!

caseyaffleck.jpg

Oooh, you in trouble now, gurl!

The producer suing Casey Affleck for sexual harassment is now being accused of withholding "key production documents" so that she can negotiate a higher salary for her work on I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix.

Affleck's attorney Marty Singer says that producer Amanda White claims that she refused to hand over important production documents until her contract was finalized.

In an email that Singer calls "extortionate," White told Affleck, "I really feel that in good faith, the documents you refer to are my work product, so I would prefer to hold them in trust until we can get the matter of my deal resolved."

The producer reportedly left the production in April 2009, over a year before mentioning the sexual harassment claims.

"It seems odd that it took 15 months for them to bring this up, and it only happened after negotiations on her compensation stalled," said one source.

Hmm, the whole thing sounds very strange…

Casey Affleck Sued For Sexual Harassment, Plans To Countersue!

wenn1890282.jpg

We hope this isn't true!

Casey Affleck has been hit with a $2 million sexual harassment lawsuit by Amanda White, a producer on I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix.

She claims that Casey acted inappropriately while directing the flick and that she experienced "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace."

In the complaint, White alleges that Casey called women "cows" and bothered her while discussing his sexual exploits. She also added that although Affleck is married to Joaquin's sister Summer, the director took over White's hotel room in Costa Rica to entertain two ladies. And he even tried to get her to spend the night with him in San Francisco.

She added that Casey became "hostile and aggressive" when she denied his advanced and "violently grabbed her arm in an effort to intimidate her into staying."

But Casey's camp is claiming this is bullshiz!

Affleck's lawyer, Michael Plonsker, said:

"The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit. 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."

White is looking for damages for sexual harassment, breach of oral contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and money owed as producer of the film.

Oh shiz. We don't know who to believe!
