Jim Cummings, the legendary voice actor of Winnie the Pooh, has been accused of rape, drug addiction and animal abuse by his ex wife, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Stephanie Cummings, who divorced Jim in 2011 after a decade of marriage, claims that since leaving Jim, he has “engaged in physical, sexual and emotional abuse including but not limited to death threats, rape, and various sexual deviant behavior forced upon me without my consent.”
The exes have been fighting for custody and child support payments for their two minor daughters. In legal documents, Stephanie claims Jim would withhold payments of support and “demand sex from me in exchange for meeting his support obligations.”
Among the worst of the allegations, Stephanie claimed that she was raped by Jim in 2013. The ex-wife claims that Jim would frequently, and without consent, “touch my buttocks, my groin, and my breasts. He would hold me in place attempting to kiss and fondle me. He would spank me in front of our daughters. He would then follow up by making sexual comments to me that I found repugnant.”
According to Stephanie, Jim would tell their kids that he was allowed to “touch Mommy’s breasts since he had paid for them.”
In his defense, Jim sent an email to Stephanie referring to her “distortions” as “obscene.”
“Everyone, Gracie myself and especially YOU were all giggling and laughing, it was pleasant to have one moment of light-heartedness. We both erupted into laughter…I’m hardly the first person in the world to point out one ‘catches more flys sic with honey than vinegar’ for you to overlay a reference to being a w***e is little too telling,” he wrote in the email, adding, “Let’s get this over with for the love of God.”
The alleged harassment from Jim took a toll on Stephanie’s health. In 2017, she moved to Utah with their two daughters. But during a visit to see the children, Stephanie claimed Jim assaulted her in the middle of the night.
“(He) was standing over me with his erect penis in my hand. He was using my hand to stroke his penis while my youngest daughter was asleep on the other side of me. She was 10 years old at the time,” Stephanie claimed.
Stephanie continued, “I told him to stop and get out of the house. He refused. He then came back and did the same thing, insisting I masturbate him or he would wake Lulu up. I did as he asked given his threat to wake up my daughter and my worry that I could not control what he would do in front of her.”
After that incident, Stephanie obtained a second restraining order against Jim last year.
In the court documents, Stephanie blamed the main reason for their separation on Jim’s “abuse of alcohol, marijuana, and Adderall.” She also accused Jim of abusing the family’s puppy by leaving it in a metal bucket for “a long time” in extreme heat after it peed in the house.
Jim does not dispute the incident but remembers it differently.
“There was an incident where I put a ‘tub’ (not a metal bucket) over a dog to isolate it briefly as a form of discipline to its behavior at our vet’s suggestion, and unfortunately I forgot the dog was there for a while, but then of course I released it.”
In her damning testimony, Stephanie accused Jim of currently living with a woman who was once a sex worker, and summarized that he is a “much smaller version of Harvey Weinstein,” who needs help for his alleged addictions.
Stephanie stated her daughters’ lives are in danger around Jim and she wants full custody of the kids.
“Winnie the Pooh lives with a w***e, pays a w***e to pretend to be his girlfriend, rapes and abuses the mother of his kids,” Stephanie said.
