Porn performer Nikki Benz filed a lawsuit against porn company Brazzers, director Tony T. and performer Ramon Nomar on Monday, alleging that she was “struck on the face, head and breasts hard enough to cause her to bleed” during a December 2016 shoot.

In the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, Benz names Brazzers, its parent company MindGeek, director Tony T. and male performer Ramon Nomar, alleging battery, assault, sexual battery, gender violence and other counts.

Benz alleges that, prior the the beginning of the shoot, she was only aware “that the shoot would be hardcore and what she would be wearing.”

However, the suit says, Tony T. repeatedly “slapped Benz’s face and breasts,’ saying, ‘Open your eyes bitch’ and, ‘Open your f—ing eyes.'”

“He would film with one hand and choke Benz with the other hand. Nomar stomped on Benz’s head. Between Tony T. and Nomar, Benz was hit, slapped choked and thrown on the ground and against the wall,” the suit reads. The suit also says that Benz suffered physical violence enough to cause bleeding,  that Nomar and Tony T concealed the blood by pouring water on the walls and flow, and that Benz was not only gagged with her own underwear, but also effectively waterboarded.

The complaint adds that Benz never consented to having Tony T. touch her during the shoot at any time, and called “cut” several times during the shoot to express that to him and Nomar.

During the exit interview, when asked if she would do the shoot again, she said that she wouldn’t shoot with them again, the suit alleges, after which Tony T. yelled, “Stop!”

“Tony T. made Benz record her exit interview again to give a ‘yes’ response,” saying that if she didn’t do so, “Benz would not receive her check,” the suit, which seeks unspecified damages, reads.

As a result, the suit says, Benz suffered “pain, suffering, emotional distress, as well as past and future medical expenses and lost wages.”

TheWrap has reached out to MindGeek and an attorney for Tony T. and Nomar for response to the suit.

Benz first accused Tony T. of assault in December, after which he was fired by Brazzers. The director filed suit his own lawsuit against Benz, Brazzers and MindGeek, claiming that he was defamed by her accusations. Nomar was also listed as a plaintiff in the suit.
