Winnie the Pooh Actor Jim Cummings Claims Victory Over 'False Allegations'


UPDATE (5/15): According to NY Daily News, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Shelley Kaufman said, "The court finds that each party has engaged in some form of abuse.” The court placed mutual domestic violence restraining orders on the two, which will remain in place for three years. Jim Cummings will receive sole physical custody of their children, while sharing joint legal custody with Stephanie Cummings. Stephanie will be able to resume visitation after “a minimum of three conjoint therapy sessions with each child.”

Winnie the Pooh voice actor Jim Cummings has claimed victory in a custody hearing that saw ex-wife Stephanie Cummings accuse him of sexual assault and animal abuse.

In a post on Twitter, Cummings tweeted, "Friday nite&alls GREAT!! My girls are officially safe and sound at HOME, adios false allegations, quotes, lies and nastyiness! Hello smooth sailing and peace. Blessings 2 all for your beautiful love and support for my family & I, God bless thank u all."

Court documents showed Stephanie alleged instances of sexual abuse and animal abuse perpetrated by Jim, which you can read in our original coverage. However, he disputed her account of those events. According to the original report, which came from The Blast, Cummings "also alleged she may have a mental health disorder and says she has been taking medication." He also claims Stephanie threatened him, saying, "I will go and I will ruin your reputation … I am going to tell people Winnie the Pooh is a woman beating, drug addicted freak!”
