Jim Cummings has been known to voice-over legendary Disney characters from Tigger to Winnie the Pooh. His ex-wife knows him to be a very different man however.
Jim and his ex-wife Stephanie divorced in 2011 after 10 years of marriage, and Stephanie is now coming forward with multiple alleged incidents of abuse that she says happened after their marriage fell apart.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Stephanie says since her divorce from 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.”
She highlighted multiple incidents in the documents, including a domestic violence altercation that happened in front of their 4-year-old daughter. Stephanie said Jim came to her home and forced himself on her.
“He later came up behind me, grabbed my arm, spun me around and forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall,” she said.
After the incident, Stephanie got two domestic violence restraining orders put in place against him. She also claims she was raped by Jim in 2013.
In the court documents, Stephanie says Jim’s behavior was due to his “abuse of alcohol, marijuana, and Adderall.” She describes incidents where Jim showed up to her house under the influence of drugs.
Stephanie has long been fighting to gain full custody of their two children. In her argument, she claims Jim abused the family puppy to the point it almost died.
The two are currently is an ongoing battle regarding the allegations, and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services is investigating their case for the safety of their children.
