NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A new lawsuit is alleging that Cuba Gooding Jr. raped a woman twice inside a SoHo hotel room in August of 2013.

According to court documents, the woman who filed the suit under "Jane Doe" alleges the assault occurred after she met the actor in the VIP section of a Greenwich Village lounge.

Gooding invited her for drinks at the Mercer Hotel and the two took a taxi to SoHo, the suit said.

Upon arrival, Gooding said he would change his clothes and told her to come with him to his room at the hotel, the suit states.

While in the room, Gooding played music by Mumford & Sons and began to undress, despite the woman trying to tell him she wanted to leave and head to the bar downstairs.

"Plaintiff was wearing a halter top dress that evening. Defendant finished taking off his clothes (he was now completely naked) and forcibly and without consent put one hand in her halter top to touch Plaintiff’s breasts and one hand up her dress," the suit said.

That's when according to the suit, Gooding allegedly began to grope her while she told him "no" several times.

The actor then allegedly raped the woman vaginally and anally, the court documents state.

After the assault, the woman rushed "downstairs in order to meet her friend, and hurriedly left the hotel room," the suit alleges.

"The allegations are completely false," Gooding Jr.’s attorney, Mark Heller said. "No complaint was lodged seven years ago."

Currently, Gooding has is currently facing trial on six misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and forcible touching stemming from allegations of three accusers.
