Academy Award-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr is being investigated by the NYPD after he was accused of touching a woman inappropriately.

Several clubgoers posted clips of Gooding in a torn button-down shirt singing Journey’s song “Faithfully” into a microphone on social media. The actor's fellow partygoers claim that they didn't witness the incident.
“He was super good … sang with everyone,” said a partygoer.

Gooding was married to his high school sweetheart Sara Kapfer for 20 years until they separated in 2014. He filed for divorce in 2017.
