Cuba Gooding Junior has been accused of rape — and the alleged victim is suing.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the woman says the Oscar-winner “coerced” her to his hotel room in 2013 and assaulted “her before falling asleep and allowing her to escape.”
Jane Doe is suing Gooding for a “crime of violence” based on gender and seeking damages.
Cuba’s attorney, Mark Heller, tells TMZ, “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.”
In October, Cuba pled not guilty to several charges in his sexual assault case. More than 20 women have accused him of sexual misconduct.
