Cuba Gooding Jr

Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in to New York police after the Oscar-winning actor was accused of groping a woman in a Manhattan bar last weekend.

According to AFP, a police spokesman confirmed that the 51-year-old actor surrendered on Thursday, but refused to comment on the details of the complaint. 

Gooding vehemently denies the charges of grabbing a woman's breast on a night out on Sunday, according to US media reports.

The Hollywood star, who won an Academy Award in 1997 for playing a football player in Jerry Maguire. He was asked about the incident by TMZ on Tuesday at an LA airport, and he claimed "nothing" happened.

"I trust the system. There's a tape that shows what really happened," he said. Apparent footage has appeared online of Gooding Jr and his alleged accuser.

His lawyer told reporters he had "not acted inappropriately in any shape or form" and that a video existed that would see him "totally exonerated".

"He did absolutely nothing wrong," said Mark J Heller. "I frankly am shocked and horrified that this case is being prosecuted."

A second woman has apparently come forward with claims that the actor also groped her in an NYC club back in 2008.

The actor exploded onto the scene in 1991 after appearing in Boyz n the Hood. He recently portrayed OJ Simpson in The People vs OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.

While a lot of us may be too young to remember the most highly-publicised court case in American history, we now have a second chance to see the whole thing.

And just in case that doesn’t entice you, it’s going to be full of Kardashians too!

The first pictures of the actors playing the young Kardashian clan on set of American Crime Story have been released, and they look SERIOUSLY similar to our favourite family twenty years ago.

It is no secret that the Kardashian name first came to prominence in the early 1990s during the murder trial of former sports star and actor, OJ Simpson.

In this new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, David Schwimmer (yes, that’s Ross Gellar) is playing Robert Kardashian – Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob’s Dad.

Selma Blair is playing Kris Jenner in the show. The Cruel Intentions star actually bumped into the momager on a red carpet two months ago, and their uncanny similarities were seen in person for the first time.

Meanwhile Oscar-winning actor, Cuba Gooding Jr, is set to play the role of Mr Simpson himself and John Travolta appears as Robert Shapiro, another of Mr Simpson's defence attorneys. 

With the world’s attention permanently fixated on the lives of the Kardashians, we have no doubt that this show, which is set for a 2016 release, will garner a HUGE audience.
