All it took was another on-screen success for Cuba Gooding Jr. to find his true self. Right in the middle of Miami’s popular Club LIV.
According to crystal clear video footage spotted on Baller Alert, Gooding Jr., the current star of FX’s American Crime Story: People vs O.J. Simpson, reached his party peak in the middle of the club, when he began dancing wildly atop something, with his t-shirt tied around his head. What’s more? When a fan began taping him, Simpson snatched the iPhone out of the partygoer’s hand, and promptly shoved it in his mouth. Yes, to put it bluntly, he began eating an iPhone. See for yourself below.
For a tentative explanation as to why Gooding Jr. chose that particular persona to occupy during his stretch of jubilance, please note that Rick Ross‘s “I’m Not a Star” soundtracked that video. Everything makes sense now. For context, Gooding Jr. has reason to celebrate. He hasn’t played a role this celebrated and talked about since he was Nicky Barnes in American Gangster, and that was in 2007. Exhibit B is below, for your viewing pleasure.
