Days after the Oscar-winning Cuba Gooding Jr. was accused of grabbing a woman’s breasts at a rooftop bar in Manhattan, a social media star said he assaulted her too.
Claudia Oshry said on her podcast, The Morning Toast: “At the end of the day, like, I don't know if I've ever considered myself to be, like, a victim of sexual assault because I'm not. There are people who are real victims that I would never compare myself to them. But yes, when I was in high school—I was f–king 16 years old—Cuba Gooding Jr. put his finger up my butt, and I felt wild. Like, I felt—I don't even know what the right word is. And now, it's just become, like, a part of who I am. It's a part of my story.”
On Monday, the 51-year-old’s attorney Mark Heller told E!: “Cuba says this incident never happened and he has no recollection of this individual either.”
Gooding Jr. pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and is free on bail.
