Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. accused of rape

Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. has been accused of raping a woman in 2013, according to a civil lawsuit filed yesterday.

In the complaint, an anonymous woman accused the 52-year-old actor of raping her in a Manhattan hotel seven years ago.

After inviting her for a drink, Gooding allegedly took her up to his room.

The woman said the actor prevented her from leaving once he began undressing in front of her, then pushed her onto the bed and raped her twice even though she kept asking him to stop.

Gooding and his team are denying the accusations, “The allegations are false and perjurious.”
