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?
