“Glee” Star Sued By Former Girlfriend For Sexual Assault
“Glee” star Mark Salling has found himself in a position no guy ever wants to be in and is maintaining his innocence despite a new lawsuit.
Salling’s former girlfriend, Roxanne Gorzela, is accusing him of sexual battery and assault after an incident in 2011 in which she says the two had a fight over Salling refusing to wear a condom when they were intimate after she’d expressly told him she wanted him to wear one. When she later confronted him about the incident and asked if he had any STDs, she says, he became physically violent and pushed her down, causing her injury. She filed a police report the same day.
Gorzela is seeking unspecified damages, but Salling’s publicist has already begun damage control, saying there is no truth to the claims.
“There is no truth to this. It’s the textbook case of a disgruntled girl looking to cash in on a TV star’s success,” she said. “We turn the rest over to Mark’s attorneys and have no further comment.”
