Popular American actor, Cuba Gooding Jr, who been charged with groping three women, has recently been accused of raping a lady in 2013, according to a civil lawsuit filed yesterday.
As per the complaint, registered with the Manhattan federal court and reported by several US media outlets, an unknown lady already charged the 52-year-old actor for raping her seven years ago in Manhattan hotel.
It all happened shortly after Gooding Jr invited her for a drink, took her up to his room.
The lady confessed the actor stopped her from escaping as he started undressing in front of her, then pushed her onto the bed and raped her twice even though she kept asking him to stop.
“Our client is making very serious allegations against Cuba Gooding Jr in her lawsuit which we have filed,” lawyer Gloria Allred, who is representing the plaintiff, said.
Allred is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for her client.
“She looks forward to obtaining justice in a court of law,” Allred told AFP.
Gooding’s team denied saying;
“The allegations are false and perjurious,” his lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, told AFP.
“We believe the case will be dismissed.”
