The Man Who Voiced Winnie the Pooh Has Been Accused of Rape, Animal Assault and Other Crimes


New reports have it that the actor who voiced popular Disney character, Winnie the Pooh, has been accused of animal abuse and rape by his ex-wife amid a heating court battle between the pair.

Stephanie Cummings, Jim’s ex-wife, alleges in court documents that her the veteran voice actor who she was married to “has engaged in physical, sexual and emotional abuse including but not limited to death threats, rape, and various sexual deviant behaviour forced upon me without my consent” since the pair split in 2011, according to reports by the Blast.

Meanwhile, the 66-year-old old actor— who has appeared in lots of Disney animations — claims Stephaine has threatening to ruin his successful career, once threatening him with the words “I am going to tell people Winnie the Pooh is a woman-beating, drug-addicted freak!,”

The duo is currently fighting over the custody of as well as support payments for their two kids in a court in Los Angeles, where Stephanie Cummings is claiming that her ex-husband to her is a“much smaller version of Harvey Weinstein” who is not safe to be allowed around their daughters.

According to a website, Stephanie alleges her children’s father had raped her back in the year 2013 and also assaulted her on different occasions — saying that Jim often, “without consent, would touch my buttocks, my groin, and my breasts and demand sex from me in exchange for meeting his support obligations.”

Stephanie claimed she was able to get the first of two restraining orders against Jim in 2011 after the actors allegedly slapped her butt in the presence of their then-4-year-old kids, then proceeded to “forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall.”

She also claimed that on another occasion, Jim said he had the right to “touch Mommy’s breasts since he had paid for them.”

In the court documents, we have information that the actor accused his ex-wife of “obscene” “distortions.”

According to the website, Jim wrote “‘Forcing’? Please, 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.”

In 2017, Stephanie moved their girls to Utah, and she claims it was necessary if the daughters must escape the situation.


Steph added that when the father of her daughters came visiting because he wanted to see the kids, she woke up to a naked Jim one night, “standing over me with his erect penis in my hand” while one of their daughters was asleep right beside her. At that point, she knew she needed a second restraining order.

Stephanie also claims that Jim was mean enough to abuse their family puppy — one time shattering the animal’s hip with a broom and on a different occasion placing the young canine “inside a metal bucket outside of the house on a day which it was over 100 degrees, then left it there for a long time” until the dog “came close to dying.”

Jim, on the other hand, acknowledged in court documents that he was guilty of putting the puppy in a “tub” as a way of discipline it for bad behaviour; then he forgot the little guy was there “for a short time,” according to the blast.

Stephanie alleges that she and Jim originally split because the father of two was addicted to “alcohol, marijuana, and Adderall” ageing that since that time, Jim has shown up at her house “uninvited while intoxicated or high on Adderall”.
Jim countered that accusation by saying that he had never used that medicine for Agni reason.

The Blast reports that Jim claims that he has tried to settle things south his ex-wife, but she doesn’t seem like she cares about anything but herself. Adding that she has “outbursts of hostility directed at me.”

This indeed is hard one, but the show must go on. Please leave Comment.
