Anthony Anderson is under criminal investigation for allegedly assaulting a woman.
According to The Blast, sources familiar with the situation said the woman met with Anderson a second time after an event she catered for him to discuss any future business opportunities when the assault occurred.
She later filed a police report with the Hollywood Division of the LAPD.
A woman filed a police report with LAPD claiming the “Black-ish” actor assaulted her months ago. We’ve confirmed Anderson is listed as the suspect on the police report.
A rep for Anderson tells TMZ, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false,” adding, “The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
This isn’t the first time Anthony’s faced accusations of assault. He and an assistant director were accused of raping an extra on the set of 2004’s ‘Hustle & Flow,’ but the charges were later dropped because the testimony didn’t produce probable cause.
