According to a report from Page Six, Cuba Gooding Junior, who’s currently facing off against sexual-abuse charges from several women, took his partying antics to the South. The actor and his friend, Claudine De Niro, were recently seen hanging out in Miami, Florida, to celebrate the latter’s birthday.
This past Thursday, the couple was at Mr. Chow at the W Hotel in South Beach. They reportedly partied until the early hours of the morning at Wall Nightclub. A source who spoke with the outlet claimed it was clear there was some serious romantic tension between both De Niro and Gooding Junior.
Insiders claimed that Cuba was on his best behavior and barely looked at the women working there who were dressed up in sexy outfits. Thus far, Mr. Gooding Junior has denied all of the allegations against him. Earlier in the month, however, some of his entertainment industry peers took a shot at him.
The notorious 50 Cent, who has, in recent years, become famous for his social media trolling, asked why Cuba Gooding Junior was at a Nets game. The rapper joked on the ‘Gram that Cuba probably shouldn’t be there because he had been accused of groping 15 different women.
An attorney who spoke with the aforementioned publication, in response to questioning regarding his client’s weekend, stated that he was very happy to see Cuba enjoying his life to the fullest. Cuba’s attorney added in a statement to Page Six that Cuba was confident he would be exonerated following the judicial process.
Cuba Gooding Junior’s professional reputation was called into question for the first time earlier this year when a 30-year-old woman came out to accuse the actor of groping her breast while at a nightclub. At a later date, when the actor was arraigned, the prosecutor indicted the A Few Good Men star on additional charges.
It was reported by several outlets that Cuba appeared very happy and cheery upon his entrance into the venue, but didn’t look quite so content on his way out.
