Anthony Anderson is accused of sexual assault

Anthony Anderson is under criminal investigation for allegedly assaulting a woman.

The Blast says the woman filed a police report with the LAPD earlier this year and that the alleged incident happened more than year ago after she met the Black-ish star while working at an event he threw.

Anderson denies the allegation. On Sunday, his spokesperson said, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”

In 2004, an extra on set of Hustle & Flow accused Anderson and an assistant director of raping her. The case was later dismissed.
