Cuba Gooding Jr. has been accused by seven more women of sexual misconduct. The now brings the number of women that have now accused the 51-year-old movie star of sexual harassment to 22.
He has only been charged in three of the accusers’ alleged incidents, although prosecutors hope to introduce the other claims in court to prove a pattern of sexual abuse.
In January 2009, while attending the star-studded festival in Park City, Utah, Gooding allegedly invited a woman to another event, and the pair then went to a concert, in court papers.
When the woman told the actor she was going to leave, he “seemed agitated” and offered to walk her out.
In a back, secluded hallway, he “began to kiss [her] without consent” and when she pushed him away, noting Gooding was married, he “placed his hand on her buttocks,” the papers state.
Then he pushed “his hand forcefully into the crotch area of her tights, placing his fingers on her anus” and ripping her tights, prosecutors say.
The allegation is one of a slew against Gooding, dating back to 2003, and spanning six states: New York, California, Georgia, Utah, Texas, and New Mexico.
