Mark Cuban is denying any wrongdoing after a report published details of a woman coming forward to police in 2011 stating the Dallas Mavericks owner sexually assaulted her in Portland, Ore.

“It didn’t happen,” wrote Cuban in an email to the Associated Press.

Willamette Week’s Nigel Jaquiss obtained a police report via a public records request from May 2011 of a woman contacting the Portland Police Bureau to speak out against Cuban. She says Cuban – who admitted to consuming alcohol that night – put his hand down the back of her jeans and penetrated her vagina with his finger as they were posing for a photo together at an Old Town nightclub.

The woman waited more than a week to come forward, later telling a detective she didn’t want to be labeled as “that girl” in a sex scandal with Cuban.

No charges were laid against Cuban, as the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office determined there was insufficient evidence.

“Because all leads have been exhausted and there remains a lack of physical or circumstantial evidence, I recommend the case be suspended,” wrote Senior Deputy District Attorney Don Rees on July 27, 2011.

Cuban’s attorney, Stephen Houze, also released a statement: “This incident never happened and her accusations are false.”

The woman was recently contacted by Willamette Week. She says she’s moved on from the incident and is “a happy person” with “a wonderful life,” but still stands by her account from seven years ago.
