Pinky from 'Next Friday'

I've Been Falsely

Accused of Rape

9/6/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The actor who played Pinky in two of the "Friday" movies claims he's been falsely accused of raping a woman in Louisiana last year ... despite allegations in a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Clifton Powell -- who also appeared in "Rush Hour," "Ray" and "Menace II Society" -- has been sued by a woman using the pseudonym Kiyante Myers ... who claims the actor raped her in a hotel room in August 2011.

According to the suit, Myers claims she initially consented to sex with Powell ... but when it turned rough, she asked him to stop ... and he refused.

Instead, she claims, Powell placed his hands over her face and raped her.

TMZ has learned ... Myers went to cops about the incident last year ... and an investigation was conducted. But cops didn't feel there was enough evidence to prove Powell committed a crime and they closed the case against the actor.

Myers has now taken her claims to federal court in Louisiana, where she's seeking damages in excess of $75k.

A rep for Clifton tells TMZ ... "Mr. Powell absolutely denies these false accusations and plans on pursuing all legal remedies available to him against his accuser."

If you're on the verge of climax and the woman says no it's hard for him to stop. Guess I'd be charged with rape too. I know a couple of women that do this as a hustle.Give a married guy sex and when he's on the verge to climax they yell stop and threaten first to tell the wife unless he gives them whatever they ask for then threaten to accused him of rape if their needs aren't met.

Rape is the most common *false* accusation against men.
Our prisons are full of innocent men who were *wrongly* convicted of rapes, when they never raped anyone.
False rape accusations are more common than actual rapes.

Even if he didn't rape this lady, he raped someone else for sure just look at him.

Awww dam, not Pinky....Nucca!

Seriously, NO will always mean NO so I am not blaming a "victim"! But we women need to be more proactive in protecting ourselves. Stop going to motels with men and thinking that NOTHING is going to happen just because you say NO. When it comes to your personal safety always assume the worst could happen and react accordingly so that you will not become a victim.

Seems suicious she didn't ask for more, if she asks too little theyll think she's lying an doenst want to get caught by wanting more, and if she asks too much they'll take in account she consented first
