Robert De Niro’s company, Canal Productions, is suing a former employee for $6 million.
The company claims Chase Robinson abused the company’s card, racking up ridiculous hotel and dining out charges. They also claim she used millions of De Niro’s frequent flyer miles for her personal trips around the world.
In addition to this, she also didn’t work! The company says Robinson, who was first hired as an assistant and then worked her way up to vice president of production, spent hours on the job watching Netflix.
The company says she rarely came into the office, and alleges she spent ‘astronomical amounts of time’ watching Netflix during work hours. The company alleges that during a four-day period in January, she watched 55 episodes of Friends. Over another four-day period in March, she allegedly watched 20 episodes of ‘Arrested Development’ and 10 episodes of ‘Schitt’s Creek.’
At least she has good taste in shows, yeah? It would have been extra disappointing if she spent five hours watching The Ranch.
Before she was fired this year, Robinson was making a cool $300,000 a year.
Sadly, she has ruined it all and might be forced to pay back a loooot of money.[mashshare]
