Robert De Niro is demanding his former employee hand over emails he believes prove she spent his company's money on personal expenses like fancy meals.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the Academy Award-winning actor is pleading with a judge to force his ex-assistant Graham Robinson to produce the documents.

In his case, he accuses Robinson of using millions of his frequent flyer miles for her personal use (worth an estimated $300k), using his company credit cards for expensive hotel rooms and fancy dinners at Nobu, paying for Pilates classes that had nothing to do with her work, and binge-watching 55 episodes of Friends while on the clock.

"The expenses Canal had identified included, but were not limited to, those for food, transportation (including Ubers and taxis), dog-sitting, groceries, cameras, iPhone, magazine subscriptions, Pilates classes, dry-cleaning, flowers for her residence, an unknown number of gift cards and related expenses," his lawyer wrote.

He is seeking $6 million in damages.

Robinson fired back by filing a $12 million countersuit accusing De Niro of forcing her to endure a toxic workplace. She said he called her a "bitch" and whined about him paying his male personal trainer more than her.

Robinson started work with De Niro as his personal assistant in 2008. She worked her way up to Vice President of Production and Finance at De Niro’s production company Canal Productions — where she was being paid $300k per year until she resigned in 2020.
