Cuba Gooding Jr. accused of sexual misconduct by three more women

Three more women have contacted police to accuse Cuba Gooding Jr. of sexual misconduct.

Gooding's attorney, Mark J. Heller, told American publication PEOPLE in statement the claims by the three women are not "credible".

It read: "Reportedly, there have been three additional ladies claiming sexual misconduct on Cuba’s part, one going as far back as 2008. None of those is credible.

"They certainly won’t be incorporated into the indictment for which we’ll appear in court tomorrow.

"There is no proof of any criminal conduct on Cuba’s part," Heller concluded.

In a statement released to PEOPLE, McRorie penned: The NYPD takes sexual assault and rape cases extremely seriously, and urges anyone who has been a victim to file a police report so we can perform a comprehensive investigation, and offer support and services to survivors."
