Cuba Gooding Jr. Accused of Raping Woman Twice in NYC Hotel Room in New Lawsuit


Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is accused of raping a woman twice in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013, according to a lawsuit that escalates the severity of the growing number of claims against him.


Gooding already faces misdemeanor criminal charges of sexual abuse and forcible touching related to claims women have previously made against him.


But when they arrived at the hotel, Gooding convinced her to go upstairs with him to a room, saying he wanted to quickly change his clothes, the lawsuit said.


Instead, he put on music and attacked her, shoving his hands underneath her clothing before taking it off and holding her arms to pin her down as he sexually assaulted and raped her twice, the lawsuit said.


According to court papers, the August 2013 attack has left the woman with "emotional pain, suffering, and a loss of enjoyment of life."


Gooding appeared last week in Manhattan state court, where he has pleaded not guilty to six misdemeanor charges of forcible touching and sexual abuse.
