'Glee' star sued for sexual battery, assault

A lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday could land one of the stars of the hit musical series "Glee" in some hot water.

Mark Salling

Mark Salling, who plays Puck on the Fox series, is accused of sexual battery and assault by a woman who claims the actor forced her to have unprotected sex despite her demands he wear a condom.

The plaintiff, Roxanne Gorzela, alleges that in March 2011 the two were engaged in "personal and intimate contact" when Salling "inserted his penis into [her] vagina without a condom" without her consent.

When she pushed him off of her and insisted he wear protection, Salling continued in his pursuit. The complaint continues, "Although Defendant was aware that Plaintiff did not consent to unprotected sexual intercourse, Defendant violated Plaintiff again by inserting his penis into Plaintiff's vagina without a condom for a second time."

Gorzela claims that following the sexual encounter, she attempted to question Salling about the potential for STDs. When texts and calls were ignored, Gorzela confronted the actor at his home where he grabbed and pushed her, causing her to hit her head, an encounter backed up by a police report included in her lawsuit.

Salling's publicist, Janice Lee, refuted the allegations to TMZ. "There is no truth to this. It's the textbook case of a disgruntled girl looking to cash in on a TV star's success," Lee said. "We turn the rest over to Mark's attorneys and have no further comment."

Hummm.  She gets attacked, and she waits nearly *two years* before she does anything about it?  Hummm.
