"Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim", Anthony's reps said in a statement.

The allegations come a little over a week after Anderson received an Emmy Award nomination, his fourth in four years for best actor in a comedy series.

The LAPD confirmed to Variety that a criminal investigation is now underway, but had no information at this time and could not reveal the nature of the investigation. Details of the alleged assault, which reportedly happened over a year ago, are now unknown.

A woman has accused of Black-ish star Anthony Anderson of assaulting her in 2017. The woman claims Anderson allegedly assaulted her during a second meeting (after the event she catered for him) in which he reportedly wanted to discuss further business opportunities with her, sources went on to say.

"It's unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false", said a representative for Anderson.

The source also claimed that the woman only felt comfortable enough filing a report now after becoming emboldened by the #MeToo movement.

"It's unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false".

Anthony Anderson is now under criminal investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Anderson has previously been accused of assault on the set of 2004's Hustle and Flow, when he and assistant director Wayne Witherspoon were accused of raping an extra.

The incident isn't the first time Anderson has been accused of misconduct.

However, Anderson, who denied the claim, was cleared of those charges after the judge found the claims to be "the most suspicious case" he had ever heard.
