Anderson Rape Charge Dismissed

7 October 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rape charges against Barbershop star Anthony Anderson have been dismissed. A woman seeking a job as an extra on the set of the actor's movie Hustle And Flow in Memphis, Tennessee, claimed Anderson and director Wayne Witherspoon attacked her in a trailer on the set. The unnamed plaintiff also alleged she had forced sex with both men over a period of several days before the reported rape took place in July . But in court yesterday, a Tennessee judge said the accuser's testimony did not produce probable cause to let the charges stand and that the woman's testimony was the most "incredulous" he had ever heard. The two men refused to comment when they left the preliminary hearing. Anderson still faces another lawsuit in Los Angeles by a woman who claims the actor sexually assaulted her on the set of his cancelled TV series All About The Andersons. »

Anderson Faced with Second Sexual Assault Charge

17 September 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kangaroo Jack star Anthony Anderson's troubles are starting to pile up - he's facing a sexual assault lawsuit only months after being charged with rape. The chubby actor was still reeling from the cancellation of his sitcom All About The Andersons in July when an extra on the set of his movie Hustle & Flow hit him with rape charges. And now Anderson and Warner Bros Television bosses have been named in a $900,000 suit by a woman who claims Anderson made suggestive comments, grabbed her genitalia and sexually assaulted her in his dressing room on the All About The Andersons set. A spokesman for the star, who celebrates his 10th wedding anniversary next year, is confident the actor will be "completely exonerated" when "all the facts come out". »

Anthony Anderson Charged with Rape

30 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kangaroo Jack star Anthony Anderson has been arrested and charged with aggravated rape while shooting a movie. The 33-year-old actor was accused by an unidentified woman of luring her into a trailer on the Memphis, Tennessee, set of his latest film, Hustle And Flow, and sexually assaulting her with the film's assistant director, Wayne Witherspoon. Both men were charged yesterday, after being taken into custody by the Shelby County Sheriff's Department. The alleged incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon at the Shelby County Correctional Center, a penal farm on the outskirts of Memphis, where filming was under way for the movie. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Shular says a passer-by heard screams coming from the trailer and opened the door. Shular says, "She ran out nude." Both suspects were released yesterday evening after posting a $20,000 bond each. Allan Mayer, spokesman for married father-of-two Anderson, says, "(Anthony) absolutely denies the heinous charges. Anthony is a happily married family man who has never been accused of - no less involved in - anything remotely like this, and we are confident that when all the facts come out, he will be completely exonerated." Mayer says it's unclear whether Anderson will return to work on the movie, but adds he will likely remain in the Memphis area for the time being. »
