Cyn­di Lau­per’s trou­bled son Declyn “Dex” Lau­per Thorn­ton has been hit with a sex­u­al assault law­suit by a for­mer girl­friend, adding to his legal woes.

Accord­ing to the Man­hat­tan fed­er­al law­suit filed on Tues­day, the 28-year-old woman claims Lau­per Thorn­ton, 26, pres­sured her to per­form oral sex and phys­i­cal­ly restrained her dur­ing an alleged attack in his Soho apart­ment on Novem­ber 9, 2020.

The woman, who filed the law­suit anony­mous­ly as Jane Doe, said she felt her “life was in dan­ger” after the inci­dent. She is seek­ing unspec­i­fied dam­ages for the “emo­tion­al and psy­cho­log­i­cal dam­age” she experienced.

Lau­per Thorn­ton, the only son of the music icon and her “Law & Order” actor hus­band David Thorn­ton, has faced pre­vi­ous legal trou­bles. He was arrest­ed in 2022 for alleged­ly steal­ing a Mer­cedes and on gun and drug pos­ses­sion charges in 2023.

The law­suit adds to Lau­per Thorn­ton’s mount­ing legal woes, as he is also fac­ing poten­tial evic­tion from his $7,200-per-month Finan­cial Dis­trict apart­ment over alle­ga­tions of smok­ing weed, late-night noise, and dis­rup­tive behavior.

The plain­tiff said she did not file crim­i­nal charges at the time, feel­ing “pow­er­less,” but now hopes the law­suit will hold Lau­per Thorn­ton account­able and pre­vent sim­i­lar attacks on oth­er women. Her lawyer stat­ed the law­suit seeks to give the vic­tim a voice and secure the jus­tice she deserves.
