AceShowbiz - In the midst of sexual harassment and assault allegations in Hollywood, another famous figure has been accused of sexual assault. Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. has been accused of sexually assaulting Jonathan Jaxson, a celebrity publicist who has repped the likes of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, Kim Zolciak Biermann and a lot of other celebs.
Jaxson, who is openly gay, wrote a lengthy post on his blog in which he detailed the alleged incident. "It has been nearly 8-years since we shared what was to be a quick friendly kiss goodbye followed by you grouping me (sic) and inviting me back to your hotel," he began.
"The season was NY Fashion Week and it was a very cold February 2007 when I arrived to Bungalow 8 with several very high profile celebrity clients who had the balcony reserved above the crowd," he recalled. "I sat with some of the biggest names alive today in Hollywood, sharing a glass of champagne after a successful day of NY Fashion Week shows. Below our group was the likes of the Olsen twins, yourself and many others and their security into this private retreat where celebrities got to be undercover."
Jaxson continued, "That night hit me hard as I only knew you from the movie 'Boat Trip' and honestly had no clue further. So when the group I was with asked if I wanted to go downstairs and say hello to some friend, I agreed and we ended up at your circular table briefly as they chatted it up with you. I went for a hug good-bye after conversing and you planted a kiss on me."
Jaxson went on to note that he wrote about the incident in his 2013 book, but "what I had left out was the biggest part, you grabbing my penis through my pants and inviting me back to your hotel which prompted the very quick exit alone for me." He explained, "This was left out due to the fears of my attorney's at the time in what would possibly cause outrage from you and my already brunt honesty."
But Jaxson said he's "fearless now and the truth shall set me free. I know if you did this to me, you surely did it to many others. As of matter of fact, it has been documented via many publications upon research you have touched many others inappropriately, yet it seems to stay hidden." He concluded his lengthy post, "You sir are forgiven, but will NEVER be forgotten."
Rep for Gooding Jr. has yet to respond to the allegation.
