Cuba Gooding Jr. speaks on groping woman, to turn himself in
While agreeing to turn himself in, Cuba Gooding Jr. maintains he never groped any woman and that there’s hard evidence to prove such.
Few days ago, we reported that Cuba Gooding Jr. was being investigated after a 30-year-old woman told cops the actor grabbed her breast. She said the incident happened while they were socializing around 9 p.m. at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on 7th Avenue in Midtown.
According to the woman, Gooding was “highly intoxicated” and that, after the alleged grab, they both got into an argument with him that had to be broken up by security.
A video showed the 51-year-old actor leaving the club soon after the incident and the woman called 911 around 1am.
Cops arrived and searched the area for Gooding but they did not find him. The case was later referred to the NYPD’s Special Victims Division
An insider revealed that Gooding who has most recently been linked to Claudine De Niro, the estranged wife of Robert De Niro’s son Raphael is being sought on a charge of forcible touching.
