Cuba Gooding Jr. is currently facing charges of forcible touching a 29-year-old woman this past Sunday around 11:15 p.m. says sources. According to the report, Gooding was under the influence when he grabbed the woman’s breast. However, Cuba continues to deny the accusations. Cuba’s Attorney, Mark Heller, says that footage from the night of the incident does not show him doing anything wrong.
According to Heller, in the footage, the woman making the claims was following Gooding around. At one point, someone tells her to leave him alone. Heller claims that being said to leave Cuba alone must have made her unhappy. Thus, causing her to file a false complaint.
The woman was telling police that the two were in the middle of an argument. Afterward, she chose to leave the club and call 911. However, Heller denies that there was ever an argument between her and his client. Another woman has come forward claiming the Cuba Gooding Jr. touched her buttocks in 2008 while in NYC.
