Actor Clifton Powell Accused of Rape

Rucuss staffSeptember 6, 2012

Actor Clifton Powell claims he’s been falsely accused of raping a woman in Louisiana last year, despite the allegations filed in a new lawsuit.

Powell, who is famously known for playing Pinky in two of the Friday movies, is being sued by a woman who is using the name Kiyante Myers. She claims Powell raped her in a hotel room in August 2011.

According to court documents, Myers said she consented to sex with Powell but when it turned rough, she asked him to stop and he refused. She claims Powell placed his hands over her face and raped her.
Myers reported the incident to police last year and an investigation was conducted. But the police didn’t pursue charges because it wasn’t enough evidence. Now Myers is suing Powell in federal court for $75,000.
A rep for Powell told TMZ,  “Mr. Powell absolutely denies these false accusations and plans on pursuing all legal remedies available to him against his accuser.”
