Cuba Gooding Jr. once told a female stranger to sit on his face and pee in his mouth, Manhattan prosecutors allege in new court papers Tuesday.
The woman is one of now a total of 14 accusers alleging sexual misconduct by the movie star, prosecutors revealed at a court hearing Tuesday, when Gooding pleaded not guilty to two counts of forcible touching and two counts of third-degree sex abuse, all misdemeanors, involving a pair of the alleged victims.
He has not been charged in the other dozen accusers’ alleged incidents, although prosecutors hope to still introduce their claims in court to prove a pattern of sexual abuse.
In February 2011, Gooding allegedly grabbed the female stranger’s arm in an LA bar as she walked past him to go to the bathroom. The pair had no “prior interaction,” the papers state.
Gooding “then placed his hand inside the woman’s blouse and squeezed her bare breast while he stated, in substance, ‘Sit on my face, pee in my mouth,’ ” the papers say.
She pushed him away while telling him, “You’re so nasty,” according to the documents.
When Gooding grabbed her arm as she walked past him to get to the bathroom again a short time later, someone told him to leave her alone, to which he replied, “I want her to sit on my face and pee in my mouth,’’ the documents say.
The allegation is one of a slew against the actor going back as far as 2011 and spanning four states: New York, California, Texas and New Mexico, according to prosecutors.
In 2013, Gooding grabbed a woman’s butt without her consent at the Chatwal Hotel in Manhattan and licked her neck, the papers say.
A year later, at Cafe Havana in Malibu, Calif., the star approached a female stranger and reached under her skirt and assaulted her, according to the documents.
“Defendant’s past behavior shows that he routinely approaches women while at bars or nightclubs with whom he has had limited or no prior interaction, and touches them inappropriately,” the prosecutors argue in the papers, in a bid to convince the judge to allow the additional dozen accusers’ allegations be considered at trial.
“Looking at these instances, it is clear that the defendant’s actions are intentional, rather than accidental, that he does not mistakenly believe the acts are consensual.”
Gooding has denied any claims of sexual misconduct.
