Cuba Gooding Jr. lives it up in LA as he hits the bar scene… amid groping and rape allegations

Cuba Gooding Jr. was spotted enjoying the night life in Los Angeles after facing allegations of groping and rape.  

The actor, 53, was pictured at the Santa Monica hotspot Shorebar on Sunday, where he was seen nursing a drink and hanging out with fellow bar hoppers.

Cuba wore a white T-shirt, beaded necklace, and sweater tied around his jeans as he hung out inside the bar without a mask on.

At one point, the actor was pictured outside chatting with one woman. 

However his attention drifted towards the distance as he gazed straight ahead with a pen in hand.   

Cuba is currently facing six groping charges over three alleged incidents which occurred in 2018 and 2019.

One of the women alleged Gooding pinched her buttocks. Another said he squeezed her breast at the Magic Hour rooftop in New York City in June last year.

The actor has denied all of the allegations. 

Over the summer, a new accuser claimed in a lawsuit that the actor raped her in a hotel room in 2013 after undressing himself and forcing himself on her while Mumford and Sons played in the background.

The accuser, who filed the lawsuit under the name Jane Doe, claimed she met the actor in a lounge bar and that they went back to The Mercer Hotel where he asked her to go to his room with him for him to change his clothes.

The woman claims in her lawsuit, which Page Six first reported, he then raped her vaginally and anally.

Gooding Jr.’s attorney Mark Heller denied her claims, saying: ‘The allegations are completely false. No complaint was lodged seven years ago.’

The allegations are the most serious of any that have been formally leveled against the actor.

It’s unclear if the woman took her allegations to the police either in 2013 or in the years since.
