Cuba Gooding Jr.

Screaming Match

Continued Outside Bar

0801_cuba_gooing_jr_bar_article
The bartender who claims she was shoved by Cuba Gooding Jr. BERATED the actor as she threw him out of her establishment Tuesday morning ... telling him, "New Orleans disowns you" ... this according to a witness who took a photo of the altercation.

TMZ obtained a pic showing the brunette female bartender engaging Cuba outside of The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street ... AFTER he allegedly roughed her up inside the bar.

We broke the story ... the bartender told police she politely asked Cuba to leave after he cussed at people who tried to take his picture ... when he shoved her into a wall.

The person who took the pic tells us ... the bartender was VERY UPSET at the actor ... and followed him outside the bar as he was being thrown out ... shouting, "I don't give a f*ck if you're a celebrity ... you don't push people."

A bar employee (the blonde) called 911 to report the alleged battery to police. Cuba has since been ordered to appear in court over the incident.

A rep for Cuba says the whole thing is one giant misunderstanding.

We called the bar for comment -- so far, no response.

So I guess they paid off the bartender to make it all "go away" ... I don't think Cuba should drink Absinthe, at least not in New Orleans, lol.

If she followed him outsided then she is just as much to blame as him. The case should be dropped.

"the whole thing is one giant misunderstanding". OK sure, but understand this, Cuba is a dick.

1. There are no "polite" bartenders on Bourbon Street. That'd be dumb. 2. I've seen many scuffles between bar patrons/ bartenders/ random folks. If there isn't blood, there's rarely a good reason to get the cops involved..

The bitsh should have been defending Cuba as a customer, from being intruded on by other customers, or else she should shut up.

hmmmm I don't know about this. She kicked him out because he was pushing people that were asking for his John Han****, away? wasn't he NOT a customer? was he not paying for his drinks just like any customer?

Cuba went from an Oscar winning actor to a C lister who seems to do nothing but hang out in bars and get drunk, every time I see him on TMZ he is slurring his words. I hope he gets into treatment to deal with his issues with alcohol

If she really followed him outside and I owned the joint she'd be fired.
