Gooding Jr. has yet to publicly comment on the allegations. Us Weekly has reached out to his rep for a comment.

Social media users shared footage of the People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story star seemingly enjoying his night out at Magic Hour on Sunday via Instagram. In the clip, Gooding Jr. sang Journey’s hit song “Faithfully” as fellow partygoers taped his performance.

Back in 2012, Gooding Jr. made headlines for allegedly pushing a New Orleans bartender. According to CNN, a misdemeanor battery warrant was issued for his arrest at the time, but the charges against Gooding Jr. were later dropped.
