Actor Faizon Love is facing legal action over allegations he "barbarically assaulted and battered" a woman after she shunned his sexual advances.
The suit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, accuses the Friday star of groping stage manager Beatrice Eliza after she picked him up from Burbank Airport in March.
Court papers obtained by TMZ.com claim "he did not stop until she threatened to kick him out of the car" - when he allegedly turned violent.
Eliza adds that days after the assault, Love showed up on the set of a theatre production and issued more threats before throwing her handbag out of a second-storey window. Police were reportedly called to the scene.
Eliza is suing for unspecified damages, insisting she "suffered great mental, physical and nervous pain" as a result of the alleged incident.
