Cuba Gooding Jr., Bryan Singer Answer #MeToo Claims
Gooding is expected to surrender to New York police today following allegations that he groped a woman at a Manhattan bar last weekend. The Oscar-winner said he has “trust in the system” and claims there’s video of the incident that will prove his innocence. Meanwhile, Singer has agreed to pay a $150,000 settlement to Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who accused the Bohemian Rhapsody director of sexually assaulting him in 2003 when Sanchez-Guzman was 17.
What does the settlement mean for Singer? His legal team reiterated his innocence and called it a “business” decision because it was cheaper than fighting the allegations in court.
