New Cuba Gooding Jr. accuser claims the actor raped her after luring her to a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 where he 'undressed himself then forced himself on her while playing Mumford and Sons'

A new Cuba Gooding Jr. accuser has claimed in a lawsuit that the actor raped her in a hotel room in 2013 after undressing himself and forcing himself on her while Mumford and Sons played in the background. 
The actor is already on trial on six groping charges relating to three alleged incidents in New York between 2018 and 2019. On Tuesday, another woman filed a lawsuit under the name Jane Doe alleging the 2013 rape. 
She claimed she met the actor in a lounge bar and that they went back to The Mercer Hotel where he asked her to go to his room with him for him to change his clothes. 
Once inside, she claims he put on the music, took his own clothes off then groped her, feeling inside her halter-neck dress to touch her breasts with one hand, and using the other to grope her genitalia. 
The woman claims in her lawsuit, which Page Six first reported, he then raped her vaginally and anally. 
Gooding Jr.'s attorney Mark Heller denied her claims, saying: 'The allegations are completely false. No complaint was lodged seven years ago.' 

The allegations are the most serious of any that have been formally leveled against the actor. 
It's unclear if the woman took her allegations to the police either in 2013 or in the years since. 
In addition to the three women involved in the criminal trial, several more women say Gooding Jr. groped them in different incidents going back years. 
The government wants to use their testimony to support their case at his New York trial later this year. 
The actor and his legal time are trying to fight it. 
He has asked multiple times for the case to be thrown out but the judge is allowing it to proceed.

In his most recent appearance, last week, the actor's lawyers argued that they should be allowed to question one of the women about her history as a sexual abuse victim and about the fact she'd complained she has small breasts.  
Gooding Jr is facing six groping charges over three alleged incidents which occurred in 2018 and 2019. 
One of the women alleged Gooding pinched her buttocks. Another said he squeezed her breast at the Magic Hour rooftop in New York City in June last year. 
Gooding Jr's attorneys said on Thursday that the woman speaks openly about the fact that she is self-conscious about her 'small breasts' online, and that it can cause her to 'misconstrue things'. 
They want to be able to ask her about her history of body insecurities, and about her history having been sexually and mentally abused by her family. 
'I believe that her decade long physical and mental abuse by her famly sexual nature and mental is completely relevant to her credibility, to her pre-disposition, sensitivities, her mindset. 
'It creates a foundation for who she is... she speaks about it in blog posts endlessly on the internet.
'It is part of who she is, it's sewn into her personality,' his attorney said, adding that the woman suffers from 'distortions'.  
He also said it was relevant that she posted online about preferring threesomes to one-on-one sex, saying: 'This accuser speaks very publicly on her blog posts about her desire and interest and preference to be in menage a trois rather than monogamous relationships. 
Gooding Jr. had been scheduled to go on trial in April, but that was postponed as coronavirus cases surged in New York and the state shut down most court matters. 
Now that the number of new positive cases and hospital admissions are down in New York, courts are starting to reopen.
No new trial date for Gooding has been set.
