Oscar victor Cuba Gooding Jr. has spoken out for the first time publicly about a woman's claims that he groped her at a NY nightclub - revealing he plans to turn himself over to the NYPD and insisting he is "absolutely not" guilty.

"I was at the club, I left". The report was carried by Page Six where it was mentioned that the Oscar-winning actor allegedly grabbed a woman's breast while they were socialising at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge. When the barman asked Cuba Gooding Junior to calm down, he became upset and pushed him away again.

He will reportedly surrender today (13 June) to the NYPD (New York City Police Department) special victims unit (which is heading the case) before he goes to court for trial. He also said "absolutely not" when asked if he was guilty.

The woman claimed Gooding Jr. was "highly intoxicated" and the pair had to be separated by security following the grab.

"I trust the system", the 51-year-old said.
