Hollywood actor, Cuba Gooding Jr. is facing new sexual assault allegations in a new civil lawsuit.
A woman accused the actor of raping her twice in 2013 inside of his New York hotel room.
The lawsuit alleged that the Oscar-winning actor attacked a woman, after she met him at a Greenwich Village VIP lounge.
The woman identified as “Jane Doe” claims the actor invited her up to his hotel room where he began to undress in front of her, Variety reported from a civil lawsuit.
She also alleged that the actor blocked the door, pushed her onto the bed, and raped her twice.
The alleged victim sued Cuba Gooding Jr. for an alleged “crime of violence” committed on the basis of gender and wants a jury to try him, according to Variety.
She is also seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
Gooding Jr.’s attorney, Mark Heller, denied the claims made by the anonymous accuser in a statement saying; “The allegations against Cuba Gooding Jr. are false and perjurious.
“There was absolutely no conduct committed in a criminal nature as alleged.
“We expect the jury to dismissed the case. It was an alleged incident that took place over seven years ago with no criminal complaint at the time.”
CANDIIDONLINE gathered that this is the latest accusation of sexual assault against Gooding Jr., who is already facing six counts of sexual abuse and forcible touching.
He appeared last week in Manhattan state court, where he pleaded not guilty to six misdemeanor charges of forcible touching and sexual abuse.
If convicted, however, he faces up to a year behind bars
According to state prosecutors, more than two dozen women have made claims against Gooding since allegations first arose against him.
