“My client is bringing serious charges against Cuba Gooding Junior in the complaint that we have filed, and she is waiting impatiently for it to be brought before the courts,” said Gloria Allred, the complainant’s lawyer.
“These allegations are false and are perjury. We think the file will be rejected,” actor Mark Jay Heller’s lawyer confirmed.
Since 2019, about 20 women have accused Cuba Gooding Junior of unwanted contact or sexual harassment.
He was charged with sexually assaulting three of these women. His trial was supposed to begin in April before being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
