Report: Mark Salling Sued for Sexual Battery
Legal matters are the norm in Hollywood, and now Mark Salling is the latest Tinseltown star to find himself suiting up a defense team.
On Friday (January 18), reports surfaced that the "Glee" star was being sued for sexual battery, after allegedly forcing ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela to have sex without a condom in March 2011.
Later in the month, Gorzela claims she confronted Salling over her emotional distress from the incident, including "health concerns," only to find him in bed with someone else.
After demanding proof from Mark that he was STD-free, Roxanne claims the 30-year-old actor grabbed and pushed her to the ground, consequently leaving significant bruising on her knees and thighs.
A rep for Salling says there is "no truth" to the situation, while his publicist explains, “It’s the textbook case of a disgruntled girl looking to cash in on a TV star’s success,” adding, “We turn the rest over to Mark’s attorneys and have no further comment.”
Gorzela is reportedly suing for unspecified damages, according to TMZ.
