Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. Accused of a 2013 Rape in New York, New Lawsuit Alleges

(The AEGIS Alliance) – NEW YORK – A new lawsuit filed against actor Cuba Gooding Jr. alleges that he raped a woman in 2013 in a Manhattan hotel room.

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. The “Jerry Maguire” Oscar-winning actor made an appearance in Manhattan state court last week on Thursday the 13th where he gave a not guilty plea to six misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and forcible touching.

He faces up to one year in jail if he’s convicted on the charges.

The woman in the lawsuit has only been identified in court papers as Jane Doe 1. She claims she met Gooding at a restaurant in Greenwich Village. The lawsuit alleges that Gooding invited her to come to the hotel he was staying at and have a drink. Gooding then asked her to go up to his room so he could change his clothes but quickly. That’s when the lawsuit alleges that Gooding wouldn’t let her leave the hotel room, court documents reveal according to New York Daily News.

In total, 30 women have accused Cuba Gooding Jr. of various sexual abuse claims that have taken place over longer than the last decade.

Mark Heller, attorney for Gooding, told TMZ that “Clearly, this is a fabricated accusation that was never reported to the police — and forms no basis for any claim at this point with 7 years having passed.”
