Cuba Gooding Jr. coaxed a woman into a Soho hotel room in the summer of 2013 and raped her twice, a new lawsuit against the actor alleges.
The woman, who filed the suit under the pseudonym Jane Doe, said the assault happened after she met the “Jerry Maguire” actor in the VIP section of a Greenwich Village lounge in August of that year, according to court papers.
After they chatted at the lounge, Gooding invited her for drinks at the Mercer Hotel and the two took a cab to the party spot in the heart of Soho, according to the suit.
When they arrived, Gooding told her to come with him to his room at the hotel so he could change his clothes, the suit states.
In the room, Gooding put on music by Mumford & Sons and began to undress — despite the woman trying to tell him she wanted to leave and go to the bar downstairs.
“Plaintiff was wearing a halter top dress that evening. Defendant finished taking off his clothes (he was now completely naked) and forcibly and without consent put one hand in her halter top to touch Plaintiff’s breasts and one hand up her dress,” the suit states.
Gooding then allegedly began to grope her while she told him “no” several times, according to the suit.
The actor then allegedly raped the woman vaginally and anally, the court papers state.
