Famous Hollywood Publicist Recalls Time Cuba Gooding Jr. Grabbed His Crotch

Published

Cuba Gooding Jr. is being accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a famous Hollywood publicist.

Jonathan Jaxson, who is known for representing Kim Kardashian and Kim Zolciak Biermann, took to his blog this week to recall the time Cuba allegedly grabbed his crotch and invited him back to his hotel room.

According to Jaxson, who is openly gay, he and the Academy Award winner, shared a “friendly kiss goodbye” during a party in 2007 at New York Fashion Week.

That intimate moment, which was also discussed in Jonathan’s book, “Don’t You Know Who I Am Yet,” was then followed by Gooding “grabbing my penis through my pants and inviting me back to your hotel which prompted the very quick exit alone for me.”

In the letter, addressed to the actor, Jaxson expressed that he has “forgiven” Gooding, but that he will never forget that night.

In the same blogpost, Jaxson also called out media consultant, Mark Young, for sexual misconduct.

Cuba is the latest Black man to be publicly blasted in Hollywood for sexual assault. Earlier this week, Russell Simmons stepped down from the companies he founded after being accused by writer, Jenny Lumet, of sexually violating her back in 1991.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
