Legendary Disney voice actor Jim Cummings — known for characters like Tigger, Mickey Mouse villain, Pete, and Winnie the Pooh — is currently locked in a bitter war with his ex-wife and she is claiming years of abuse by the star, including sexual assault, drug addiction and animal abuse.
Jim and Stephanie Cummings were married in 2001 and divorced a decade later, in 2011. They have two minor daughters, Johanna and Lulu, and have been arguing in an L.A. County courtroom over alleged incidents of abuse that occurred between 2011 and 2018, after the couple’s marriage fell apart.
Allegations of Rape/Sexual Assault
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Stephanie claims that since her divorce from Jim, he “has engaged in physical, sexual and emotional abuse including but not limited to death threats, rape, and various sexual deviant behavior forced upon me without my consent.”
Stephanie also notes that Jim is a “very successful voice over actor. He has provided voices for such films as ‘Winnie the Pooh,’ ‘Lion King,’” and adds that “he has done over 250 voices.”
She claims to have obtained two separate domestic violence restraining orders against the 66-year-old star, including after an incident on August 31, 2011, when she says Jim came over to her home and slapped her on the buttocks and forced himself on her in front of their 4-year-old daughter.
