Anthony Anderson Accused of Sex Assault


Recommended Posts





LOS ANGELES (AP) - Anthony Anderson, the rotund comedic co-star of "Kangaroo Jack" and the original "Barbershop," has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman who visited him on the set of his TV show last year. Anderson, who also is facing rape charges in Tennessee, denied both allegations.


"Clearly, this is an attempt to exploit Anthony's perceived vulnerability because of the ridiculous rape charges pending against him in Memphis," according to a statement released by Anderson's publicist. "As Anthony has said before, those charges are also completely baseless."


The latest allegation came in a lawsuit filed Wednesday. The lawsuit, which identifies the woman as "Jane Doe," names as defendants Anderson and the show's producer, Warner Bros. Television.


The woman alleged that she was trying to land a job on Anderson's now-defunct TV series "All About the Andersons" when she was assaulted on Sept. 18, 2003.


Anderson, 33, was charged in July with raping a Memphis woman who was an extra in the film "Hustle and Flow," which is still in production. He is free on $20,000 bail.
