Disney isn't the only ones ruining our childhood.
The actor who lent his vocal talents to voice some of Disney's biggest films is accused of some heinous acts. According to The Blast, the ex-wife of Jim Cummings, who famously voiced Winnie The Pooh, accused him of sexual assault and animal abuse in the years following their messy divorce in 2011. Stephanie Cummings accused her ex-husband of engaging "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”
The couple have been in a bitter custody and support battle over their two daughters in a Los Angeles court. She claimed in 2013, Jim raped her and sexually assaulted on numerous other occasions. She said he, “without consent, would touch my buttocks, my groin, and my breasts” and “demand sex from me in exchange for meeting his support obligations."

She also detailed a time when he slapped her butt in front of their four-year-old daughter before “forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall.” She adds he one time said that he was allowed to “touch Mommy’s breasts since he had paid for them.”
Cummings clapped back in an e-mail, writing, “‘Forcing’? Please, everyone, Gracie myself and especially YOU were all giggling and laughing, it was pleasant to have one moment of light-heartedness. We both erupted into laughter."
She additionally accused him of abusing their puppy, claiming he “took the dog and placed it inside a metal bucket outside of the house on a day which it was over 100 degrees, then left it there for a long time,” adding, “The dog came close to dying.”
She also accused Jim of being having long-standing substance abuse issues.
However, Jim has refuted that Stephanie's telling the truth. He said that she threatened him, saying, that she "will go and I will ruin your reputation … I am going to tell people Winnie the Pooh is a woman beating, drug addicted freak!”
Jim argued that he's tried to keep solve things "amicably" but she has “outbursts of hostility directed at me”
