Cuba Gooding Jr. Addresses Lil Rod’s S*xual Assault Lawsuit

Lyndon Abioye |

Cuba Gooding Jr. is speaking out after being named in Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones’ lawsuit against Diddy.

Lil Rod claims he was groomed by Diddy for other men, and in his lawsuit, he references an incident with Cuba, who he accused of groping his private areas.

“Mr. Combs had dominion and control over the actions of Cuba Gooding Jr. and failed to step in and stop Cuba Gooding Jr. from sexually assaulting Mr. Jones,” the lawsuit alleges.

Cuba says he was shocked to find out his name had been dragged into it.

“I mean that’s crazy, that’s the craziest thing I’d ever… Hey, how about me? I wake up in the morning, I turn on The Today Show, ‘Actor Cuba Gooding Jr.’—I was like, ‘Excuse me?! Pulling me into this?” he said on the PBD Podcast with Patrick Bet-David.

The actor explained why he has not spoken out about the lawsuit and the allegations.

He continued, “I think, whatever he’s dealing with, he’s on his journey, man. I can’t imagine that he’s stupid enough to do whatever he’s doing and keep it on his premises. I think that the raid and all of that stuff, only time will tell who was involved, who had been a frequent guest in these places and areas. It’s funny, because my lawyers said, ‘You know, every outlet in the world wants to talk to you.’ And again, I’m not defining myself from some headline in the press, so I stayed quiet.”
