“My dream as a kid growing up here in New York … my first crush … was Rita,” he said at the start of his speech, according to PEOPLE. “I had the incredible luxury of meeting one of my idols and from that moment on I thought the only human in the world that could play the most significant role to Dom Toretto would be Rita Moreno,” he said, referencing his character from the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

Diesel shared that Moreno made it possible for artists who “looks like me” becoming famous and breaking boundaries. “You not only show up for family but you show up for people that make a difference in this world and that just by inviting me here validates my existence. I’m serious,” he continued. “I don’t have an Oscar, I don’t have an Emmy, I don’t have a Golden Globe, I don’t have a Tony but I got Rita Moreno.”

Moreno was emotional at the event, which featured tributes from some of her fellow collaborators and actors, including Lin Manuel Miranda, Xochitl Gomez, and more.

"In December 2023, Asta Jonasson, a former assistant to the Fast and Furious actor, filed a complaint in Los Angeles, alleging that Diesel, now 56, forcibly pulled her onto a bed, groped her breasts and legs and masturbated at a hotel in Atlanta back in 2010.

Diesel's legal team responded in a filing, asking that the case be thrown out and that Jonasson pay his legal fees in the matter.

According to the documents, obtained by PEOPLE, the actor "denies, generally and specifically, each and every allegation of Plaintiff’s Complaint and further denies that Plaintiff is entitled to any relief whatsoever as against Defendant and that Plaintiff has been damaged as alleged, or in any other sum or sums, or at all."

Bryan Freedman, a lawyer for Diesel, said in a statement in December after news of the lawsuit, "Let me be very clear: Vin Diesel categorically denies this claim in its entirety."

The bad part is that celebrities this days have to go through all kind of foolishness to prove their innocents from cases like this, in the other hand the good news is that as far as I know and according the lattes news available, this legal case against Vin Diesel is now closed in Vin Diesel's favor.
