Billionaire and television personality Mark Cuban has been accused of sexual assault, according to a bombshell report by Willamette Weekly.

In a detailed report published Tuesday night, the Portland-based Willamette Week said a woman filed a complaint to the Portland Police Bureau against Cuban in 2011, claiming he had sexually assaulted her in a nightclub. However, if this suddenly turns into a cascade of allegations as has happened with many other prominent men in the #MeToo movement, then it goes without saying Cuban and the National Basketball Association would be embroiled in very problematic circumstances. While the picture was being taken, the Mavericks' owner allegedly thrust his hand down the back of the woman's jeans and "penetrated her vagina with his finger".

In a report explaining why they weren't pursuing the case, prosecutors wrote that 'there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim'. His attorney, Stephen Houze, told WW that the accusations are "false" and that the case was thoroughly investigated. She told the newspaper she never sought media attention or money from Cuban and has moved on from the incident.

She added: 'I filed the report because what he did was wrong'.

"Investigators obtained a series of seven photographs taken with a cell phone camera showing the complainant and her female friend standing next to Mr".

The woman reported that she was assaulted by Cuban as the two posed together for a photogragh.

"I really left it in the past", she told Jaquiss.

The detective told Cuban he had several pictures of him with the woman and in two of them his shoulder was dipping and his arm appeared to be reaching down. "Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr. Cuban". "I stand behind that report 1,000%". Sneed has reportedly been fired since the publication of Sports Illustrated's report. The story alleged that Mavericks CEO and president Terdema Ussery is notorious for sexual harassment and put the spotlight on other Mavericks staff members as sexual harassment perpetrators.
