Cuba Gooding Jr. Is A Wanted Man


Early yesterday morning, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Cuba Gooding Jr., but he has yet to turn himself in or be arrested. It all stems from what happened just after midnight yesterday when Cuba decided to go to a New Orleans bar. Some people recognized him and wanted to take photos with him. Probably some were drunk and said show me the money a few hundred times. Plus, you have to remember that Cuba is not a nice guy. Forget what you think, but he generally is not nice. If you have a good experience with him, than great, but the vast majority of the time, that is not going to happen. Cuba, who probably should not be in a bar in the first place got upset and shoved the bartender who tried to calm him down. Cuba shoved the bartender, not once, but twice. The bartender also happens to be female. Cuba fled before the police could arrive. He is wanted for battery.

what a douche. celebrity or not, if you cant hold your liquor, drink at home and drunk dial like the rest of us.

Susan said...

That's effed up.

Enty, can we talk about Snoop Dog's born-again situation and name change? Because that's been on my mind all night, actually. LOL. I read that he wants to make music that his children can listen to.

Oprah pushed that bartender

I've never liked his acting much -- he can take any role and HYPE IT UNNECESSARILY UP TO 111% and sometimes that's just not what the role calls for. I saw him eating on Ocean Drive once unexpectedly (at a sidewalk table with three people, on a very quiet Sunday morning) and my blood pressure went up. Like him or not, I imagine people get inappropriately jacked up whenever he's around because of the "show me the money" but also because he conveys a hyper nuttiness anyway. Maybe I have a soft spot for him because he's named Cubans and I love my Cubans.

I've been to this bar. I really liked it when I was in New Orleans. Why doesn't Cuba just drink at home?

Vicki Cupper said...

Was it Cuba Gooding, Jr. or Mario Van Peebles whose father made him have sex with a hooker in a movie when he was 13?

discoflux said...

He's a dick. I hope he gets what's coming to him.

Vicki - Either way... gross.

hunter said...

Susan - yeah I just can"t get behind Snoop Lion, who does he think he is? Piddly Diddly?

Someone was high (duh).

AuntJess said...

Somebody needs to shove that big chip off his shoulder. What a douche.

.robert said...

I have the perfect defense for him. Since he and his father look alike they just claim it was the other one and hang the jury.

Maille K Martin said...

Look for the video of him grabbing a child from the outdoor audience of Good Morning America and tossing him into the air. Twice. Cretin.

warmislandsun said...

I don't understand his appeal or why he is famous. He has always been ugly on the inside and the outside.

Hazeldazel said...

The problem is, when he stays home to get drunk he beats his wife to a pulp. Whatta guy.

Kendall said...

When I was little and they were filming Rat Race in my hometown (Ely, NV), he was very unfriendly with anyone who wanted to meet him or be around him. He was only interested in sleeping around with sleazy local women, if legend is to be believed.

The one person who was awesome the entire time was Mr. Bean. I would've been about five years old at the time and we lived about three blocks away from where they were shooting and my little sister and I would make faces at him and wave and giggle and he'd do it right back. What a neat guy.

But I really hope they find Cuba. He's an ass.

@ rejectedcarebear , damn that Oprah!

dia papaya said...

But you gotta love Cuba Gooding SR for asking Tom Cruise if he was gay during filming of Show Me The Money. Cuba Jr told this story on Graham Norton.

I thought that was why he stopped working. Guess he's just a dick?

And it is Oprah's fault bc they are filming The Butler in NoLa together.

smashbash said...

Every story I have ever heard about this guy is not good. He just seems like a dick all around.

KPeony said...

Wasn't nolachickie there?

Julia said...

My husband saw him at the bar in the Beverly Hilton last year and apparently he was hitting on anything in a skirt and determined to take whatever he could get for the evening. Even though he isn't terrible looking, no girl wanted anything to do with him since he gives off that "fuck you and throw you in a dumpster" vibe.

nolachickee said...

@KPeony - I wasn't there at the time, but I hang out in that club. By all accounts, he was being a really nasty douche to the people trying to say hi to him.

My agony is that Michael Fassbender is filming here right now, and I have not run into him. Oh the pain and anguish. I just love him so.

bonnjill said...

I was an extra on Boat Trip when they were filming in Bonn, Cologne and Dusseldorf. The stories of him hitting on anything in a skirt and being a total douchebag are true. Not to mention rumors of coke...

Agent**It said...

@nolachickee , call Oprah, she can hook you up and is in NOLA.

doctressjulia said...

Another violent male turd. I hate this guy, always have. I see my instincts were accurate. Hope he gets busted but good.

Lucas said...

When Cuba was here (Spokane, WA) filming, sleazy local girls were for sure the order of the day. Same with Samuel L. Jackson.

Agent**It said...

Update, he turned himself in and she refuses to press charges. Gee, think $$ changed hands?

Lelaina Pierce said...

Aww, man. I loved him so much in Jerry Maquire and Radio. I'd never heard anything about him before either way, but I'm always sad to hear people I "liked" act like dicks.

The bartender apparently is not pressing charges & CGJ says it's all a "misunderstanding." Mmmhmm.

Susan said...

I know "Show me the money" gets all the glory, but my favorite lines he says in Jerry Maguire are about his ant problem and when he says to his brother, "Teepee, you're militant but I love you."

And my motto when knocked up was his wifey's brilliant, "Jerry, I'm pregnant and incapable of bullshit."

This is really one of my most favorite movies ever. Cameron Crowe is a freakin' genius. And Tom Cruise seemed so normal.

Sad to hear that this guy is so douchey in real life.
