Robert De Niro admits he ‘berated’ his former assistant

The veteran actor took the stand on Tuesday to give testimony in the civil trial concerning his former assistant. When questioned by Robinson’s attorney at the New York City federal courthouse, the 80-year-old admitted to calling Robinson names during her 11 years of employment at his company Canal Productions. Referring to an incident when Robinson didn’t wake him in time for a meeting, the Goodfellas star admitted, “Yeah, fine, I berated her.” He also agreed that he might have called her names such as a “brat” or a “b**ch”, though he insisted that he was “never abusive.”
