Anthony Anderson is the subject of investigation for assault by the Los Angeles Police Department. The Blast reports the Black-ish dad assaulted a woman after an event that she catered for him in 2017. Speaking with Variety, a representative for Anthony Anderson is denying the alleged assault.
It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false,” Anderson’s rep said. “The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
The woman who was allegedly assaulted stated she met with Anthony Anderson after the event to explore future business possibilities and that is when the assault happened. The woman spoke with the LAPD and filed a police report with the Hollywood Division. LAPD confirmed the investigation to Variety but did not speak more on details regarding the case.
The woman filed the claim months after the incident and cited the Me Too movement as a reason to come out regarding the incident.
Anderson was previously charged with raping a woman n the set of the 2004 film Hustle & Flow. The charges were dropped when the judge stated the case did not have probable cause.
