Winnie the Pooh voice actor Jim Cummings has been accused of sexual assault and animal abuse in Los Angeles. Cummings’ ex-wife Stephanie Cummings claims in court documents that he “has engaged in physical, sexual and emotional abuse including death threats, rape, and various sexual deviant behavior forced upon me without my consent” since their divorce in 2001.
According to Stephanie’s report, Cummings once “forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall” and smacked her on the behind while their then-4-year-old watched.
Stephanie claims that Cummings abused their dog on multiple occasions as well. She accuses him of once breaking the dog’s hip with a broom. Cummings denies the allegations against him, counter-claiming that Stephanie has threatened to ruin his career.
