“Fast And The Furious” director Rob Cohen has denied any sexual assault complaints brought against him.
Cohen, 70, was accused of sexual assault by his daughter and an unidentified woman in a piece published by Huffington Post, according to Page Six. The director was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a New York city cigar lounge back in 2015.

“I have never assaulted, raped, drugged or molested anyone,” Cohen said in a statement to Page Six.
“I have never belonged to any cigar club, and certainly was never there with ‘Jane’. (Out of restraint, I won’t reveal her real name),” he continued. (RELATED: New ‘Fast And Furious’ Series Lands At Netflix)
Cohen accused his daughter of trying “to wage a war against [him].” The new sexual assault accusations come months after Cohen’s daughter accused him of molesting her when she was a child which the director also denied at the time.

“This hateful campaign that my daughter is waging against me, and by her own admission only affirmed by her mother, is why this is happening to me,” Cohen added. “I hope and pray that the thousands of people who know me, worked with me, and/or simply fair-minded people will see that this is an untrue and unsubstantiated story, which is out there due to hateful daughter and a mother/ ex-wife.”
