Cuba Gooding Jr. is in the news for all the wrong reasons after sources say he walked into a bar and allegedly groped some groupies, and is catching heat after a statement he made about Tom Cruise and his Sexuality…
During a recent interview on The Graham Norton Show, Cuba Gooding Jr. reminisced about his time on The Jerry Maguire Movie set. His father came for an innocent visit and little did Gooding know things were about to get extremely awkward. While introducing him to costar Tom Cruise, his father questioned the actorâ€™s sexual orientation.
â€œHe gave Tom Cruise a hug and said, â€˜I love you man. Now seriously, are you gay or not?â€ Gooding, 45, recalled, â€œI almost fainted. And I thought, â€˜Please Lord, let me disappear.’â€
Luckily, the 49-year-old did not take Goodingâ€™s fatherâ€™s unexpected comment as an insult. According to the actor, Cruise laughed and simply responded, â€œNo.â€ It is a good thing Cruise is so down-to-earth or else the rest of production would have been painfully uncomfortable for the two actors.
At the time of this incident, Cruise was still happily married to actress Nicole Kidman.
Cuba who is mairred with kids according to three women in New Mexico, Cuba Gooding Jr. was wasted when sexually assaulted themÂ at the Bar. The women say he harassed all of them at Maloney’s Tavern in Albuquerque and they have pictures to prove it.
Here’s What haappen…
Sources say At about midnight on March 1st, Cuba Gooding Jr. waltzed into the bar we were at and proceeded to sexually harass a number of the [women there] and assault (punch) a [man] for attempting to take a picture of Cuba receiving a lap dance. […] The sexual harassment occurred when women would be taking pictures with him; he would grab butt cheeks during the picture taking and when women reacted negatively to that, he would proceed to either touch women’s breasts or tell them that he “loved them.” He told me that he loved me because his wife’s name is also Sara. Classy.
She added, “I have pictures of him reaching to grope my breast…”
“… as well as pictures of my friend jumping on his back in anger after he twisted her nipples.”
Her friend Meagan told me that Gooding grabbed her ass, and confirmed that he tried to grab Sara’s chest. She also said that after leaving the area, they ran into him again on the dance floor, where he grabbed Meagan’s breast and pinched her nipple. She said he was repeatedly bothering and harassing women even after they told him to stop.
A third woman, Molly, says,
Cuba Gooding Jr. came into Maloney’s Pub in Albuquerque on March 1st, and the bar was fairly crowded at the time. No one seemed to notice or realize who he was when he first entered, and he inappropriately touched [Sara] and she immediately dismissed him. Someone then recognized him and swarms of people started crowding around him to take pictures. Sara and I took a picture with him, and he attempted to grab her breasts in the process. Later on the night, he came up to me, grabbed my face, and kissed my cheek. He asked where I was staying and told me I would be staying with him tonight, making lewd comments about his plans to sleep with me that night. He mentioned that he his happily married with three kids, but “not tonight.” He also said I was “probably like 12” years old (I am actually 23 years old). I also witnessed him inappropriately touching a friend of mine, [Meagan], which caused her to be extremely upset. Another woman in the bar gave him a lap dance and when a man tried to take a picture, Gooding grabbed the phone, threatening to “break it in half,” and followed him to the bathroom, where he apparently punched him.
